I am not sure if it was just me, but January flew by and I cannot believe we are already in February!
2022 will definitely have fewer novels compared to 2021 as I am trying to get back on track with everything outside of the reading world, such as more exercise, trying to cook more, keeping up with my chores more, among others. I still love reading, but my numbers will definitely not add up to 400+ novels per year based on my current speed.
This month I read/reviewed 20 novels (12, of which, were audiobooks). Six of them were ARCs, one was a backlist title, and one was for a book blog tour.

Spell the Month in Books
At the moment, I am caught up in my FairyLoot Unboxings as the January boxes were delayed, so that box should arrive sometime next month. While some of the items are still in their boxes, I am excited to eventually have space to display them. As stated above, I am trying to balance my reading and other hobbies while also taking care of everything else, which includes me actually putting together my bookshelves to have all of my books and memorabilia displayed.
I have about nine novels that I matched different prompts for the Beat the Backlist challenge and the two novels that I completed for the prompts in the TBR Knockout Challenge. Although I’ve completed more backlist titles compared to the number of prompts, I could not quite get the rest to fit yet. I still have eleven more months for these challenges, so I’m sure I can complete them by the end of the year.
I hope everyone had a great January and will have an excellent February!

You had such a great reading month! I really want to read Kingdom of the Wicked/Cursed. It sounds like an amazing series, and I already have copies. Definitely plan to get to it soon.
