Most places in the northern hemisphere, January was a cold, cold month. Of course the opposite was true in Australia, etc. Cold weather is great reading weather and I took advantage of it. Since I exceeded my goal of 144 books read in 2018, I am challenging myself to read even more this year. So far I have. I did not get all of those books reviewed and posted here but I came close. The rest will be posted in the next week.
Stats: 15 books read. 14 fiction. 8 written by women. 1 non-fiction. 4 for My Big Fat Reading Project. 2 translated. 4 historical. 1 thriller. 1 dystopian.
Authors new to me: Oyinkan Braithwaite, Buddadeva Bose, Lisa Wixon, Uzodimna Iweala, Chloe Benjamin, William Trevor.
Places I went: United States, Scotland, France, Nigeria, India, Japan, Great Britain.
Favorites: I gave 5 stars to 7 of the books. Top two favorites were The Lost Queen and The Immortalists.
Least favorite: not a one!
