Monthly Wrap Up: January 2023
There's something satisfying about looking back at what you've accomplished. It can inform where to go next or a goal to add or change. It can push you to achieve more, or to change the balance in your life. For me, looking back at what I did on the blog inspires me to keep going. And looking back on what I read actually puts some perspective on my reading life. It serves as a checkmark, a period, an end and a new beginning to start a new month instead of having all the days and months just run into each other.
Here's what my Reading January looked like.

Added to Goodreads in January
I added 67 books to my TBR, and read a total of 11 making a net addition to my list of 56. I've made peace with the fact that I'll never read them all, but I know just where to look when I wonder "what should I read next".
