January 2021 Rewind
We are one month into 2021. January has been unbelievably eventful. Considering we are in the midst of a pandemic, the world refuses to stop spinning. While I'm grappling with my anxiety, I find that I'm getting very adept at learning to live with it. I finally got some meds last week, so I'm coping. One of the exercises that I read about while in the midst of an attack is to try and steer your mind from the episode. You can recite a poem or prayer; spell difficult words, try to remember the table of elements...etc. What I've been doing is remembering my favourite books and try to enumerate the characters from that book. It's helping me a little.
Anyway, so this month, I read a total of 21 books:
- When You Ask Me Where I'm Going by Jasmin Kaur
- My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell
- Code Girls by Liza Mundy
- Royal by Devon McCormack
- Whisky Throttle by Riley Hart
- Fired Up by Riley Hart
- Theft by Finding by David Sedaris
- Burn by Devon McCormack
- The Wicker King by K. Ancrum
- Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
- Indians on Vacation by Thomas King
- The Hilarious World of Depression by John Moe
- Everything is F*cked by Mark Manson
- Goodbye, Things by Fumio Sasaki
- Hard Knox by Riley Hart
- The Rivals by Vi Keeland
- Murphy's Law by Riley Hart
- You're Not Listening by Kate Murphy
- Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
- The Invitation by Vi Keeland
- Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker
I had a great month, reading wise. I can't decide which was a favourite. In the end, though I chose Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker. Honestly, guys. The history of this heartbreaking family left me in awe and a little speechless. I will be posting a review sometime this week.
I didn't DNF anything in January. I'm not really in the habit of quitting on a book, anyway. So that will most likely not happen.
So that's my wrap up for the month. Thank you all for commenting and for welcoming me back into the fold. I've mass-followed a bunch of book bloggers on Bloglovin the other night. I just think that we can drum up enthusiasm for this slowly fading craft by supporting other book bloggers. Comment, comment, comment. Doesn't matter if they return the favour or not.
Have a great week, and happy reading!
