March was a relatively good reading month. I enjoyed most of the things that I read and I was able to catch up on at least a few of my eARCs, which felt really good. I also got some really great books in and chipped away at reading them. You can see everything I hauled and read below the cut.

I had a pretty good February. There were some moments were I was really struggling, but I would say that on the whole I had a good reading month. I loved most of what I read, and I picked up some books that I was pretty excited about. I ended up reading 25 books, which is pretty good all things considered.
January was a pretty good month. It was definitely a month with a lot of pre-orders so I got lots and lots of book mail, which was exciting. I evern chipped away at reading some of those books, which was extra fun. It was also a really good reading month. My students were very helpful in encouraging me to read a book for each day of the month. I didn’t quite succeed in that, but I read a lot, and I read a lot of very good things. You’ll find what I’ve read below, along with the books hauled.

December was also a busy month, and I think by this time I was feeling a little burnt out from the year. My course was all wrapped up at the start of the month. Then I celebrated my birthday and it was Christmas and my family was visiting. I didn’t get as muhc reading done as I wanted but I read some good stuff anyways. Let’s just dive into it!
I will fully admit that I am incredibly behind on all of my blog stuff but I am here to finally catch up. First on the docket is my November haul and wrap up. November was a busy month for me because it was report card time and I was also taking a course which really took up a lot of my extra time. So let’s just get into it.
