My January Reads

Last year, if my record is accurate, I read eighty books. Funnily enough, I apparently read eighty books in 2016 too. That works out to a book and a half a week. Broken down like that, the number seems low because I always have two or three books on the go at once, and most weeks it feels like I get through at least two of them. So either I’m forgetting to note some titles down or I’m not reading as much as I think I am. Either way, I’m not really bothered. I have a record of what I’ve read and enjoyed over the last few years, and more than enough titles on my ‘to be read’ list to keep me going for a long time yet. And here’s what I’m reading this week:

At the gym: Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

For Research: The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee

Before Bed: Aging Backwards by Miranda Esmonde White

Books Read to Date in 2018: 5

  1. I admire your ability to have multiple books underway. Usually I have just one novel that I’m ploughing through. But I also re-read my favourite craft books.

    1. I think it helps that most of the time the books I’m reading are extremely different. This month, I’m reading a non-fiction account of a young woman who escaped North Korea, a book on healthy movement, and a thriller novel. It’s rare that I’m reading two novels at the same time. And if I am, they’re always very different genres.
