January 2017 Books
I started War and Peace at the beginning of January and was doing great with it, zooming along past my weekly goal and then BOOM. Reading slump. I didn't pick up another book for over a week and War and Peace has sat on my table this whole time being lonely.
Once I finally started reading again I plowed through a grand total of TEN books which blew my mind since I took so much time off. I finished four books in less than 24 hours one weekend (I told you, I like to have something to do while I clean).
I didn't really have a stand-out favorite this month but The Nix by Nathan Hill was the book that brought me out of my reading slump so I'm going to give the honors to it. It's a huge book but I was enjoying it so much that I finished it in just a few days.
The best part about this month was that I discovered I enjoy audiobooks again after growing sick of them last year. I finished two during January just by listening to them on my drive to and from work and when I cleaned. Listening to them on fast speed also helped.
