Month in Review: January 2018

Month in Review:
January 2018

A lot of people are saying that January felt like a very long month, and you know, it kinda did now that I think of it. It feels as though a lot has happened since the first of year, but at least that means it was productive (maybe?).
The most important thing that happened this month for me, personally, is that my mother had her (hopefully!) final surgery for now, and I'm just so thrilled and inspired by how strong she is and how she's handled everything.
In the realm of books, I read eleven books this month, which I'm extremely satisfied with. In addition to that, most of those were four- or five-star reads, so I'd say it was a pretty good reading month! How was your reading month!?  

As I've mentioned before, I'm also very proud to be a Book Depository Affiliate and an Amazon affiliate! If you'd like to know more about that, I included some info about in this post.
