Month in Review: January 2019

We have finally come to the end of this month. I don't know about you, but this January felt like the longest month ever!!! Lucky for me, I had a great month of was a crazy weather month - we had some cold days, especially this past week and that made for lots of indoor time. There have been lots of good books published already this year and we are only one month into the year - I think it's going to be a good year for reading! Of course, that means I didn't do too well with reading books from my own shelf, but I did manage to read one, which is better than nothing.
