Happy February, friends! I honestly can’t believe it’s February because it has been practically tropical around these parts – mid 50’s, y’all. It’s amazingly awesome!
One of my goals this year is to read 50 books. I got off to a slow start in January (I only read 2 books), but we’ll be on vacation for almost two weeks in February, so I’m anticipating making up some time then!
I thought it might be fun to share a recap monthly with you all of what I read, along with my reviews. So here goes for January:
First up was How To Win Friends & Influence People In The Digital Age by Dale Carnegie.
I loved this one. I wouldn’t say the information was particularly new or groundbreaking for me, but it was just a good overall reminder of how you should be dealing with people in your everyday life in order to make the best impression and really just be the best version of yourself. If you’re in a business that requires you to be in contact with other humans, you should get this 😉
The second book I read was Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
This wasn’t particularly high on my ‘to-be-read’ list, but it was on sale for 0.99 and I can’t pass up the opportunity to read a classic. Overall, I wouldn’t say this was a page turner, although the extended monologue from Frankenstein’s monster was pretty captivating to me. Going into it, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what the story was, but I really didn’t so it was interesting to see it unfold. It’s not one I’ll probably ever read again, but I’m still glad I did.
What have you been reading lately? Do you try to read a certain amount of books in a year?
