I made a good start on my reading in January – I got through all the review books sent to me that have been slated for release between January and March. Some reviews have not gone up yet and will be linked as soon as the links are live. Some I read at the end of last year but am including the reviews in the list as they are only being released this year, so they’re part of my 2022 reviews. About 11 of the books were for review purposes, with the rest my own choices. I covered fantasy, time slip, classics, historical fiction, non-fiction, and many other genres in what I read, and have made a good start to my reading challenges, as many of the books slotted nicely into the categories, so I was able to tick as many as possible off this month. In doing so, I’ve made it easier for the other categories to be filled as I find things. Some might be harder but for others, I have already chosen the books to read. I’ll post my challenge wrap-ups when I complete them. The only two that have categories this year are the ones from QBD and Dymocks.
