January 2022 Reading Report

*peeks out from under a rock* Oh heck, is it February already? The passage of time is really something, huh.

Since around mid-January I’ve found myself really not wanting to pick up anything off my TBR, for some genuinely inexplicable reason, so my read count is a bit lower than usual (though still respectable, if I do say so myself) and comprised largely of rereads β€” but hey, reading is reading.

Since I just want to keep it simple, there aren’t really any rules for this challenge. I’ll continue to read books by diverse (Q/POC) authors, which hasn’t really been an issue for me; the location doesn’t need to feature heavily in the story. I’m hoping to finish by the end of the year, but I won’t stress too much about it.

Seven Twelve months. Fifty-one places & books. Let’s do this. πŸš—
