January Reading Wrap Up

What a year January has been, right? Insurrection, inauguration, messing with the stock market. Also we've decided that the middle of this is a good time to transition the monster to a big boy bed (or rather it's his crib but with one side removed and a small railing installed). Because if there's one thing the past year has taught us, it's that there is never a good, non-stressful time to do things so whatever, just do it. We'll see how this goes.

...If you're wondering how it goes, I've had to interrupt writing this in order to go up and help get him back in bed. So it's going about how I'd expect it to go.
This picture features about half the stuffies that made it into the bed by bedtime

Reading-wise I've started the year, OK. I didn't quite finish everything I was hoping to but I also didn't do terribly. I suppose that means I'm continuing the trend from last year. At least I'm consistent.

The Boys' Club by Erica Katz

I had been playing the equivalent of phone tag with my library hold for Children of Blood and Bone since roughly November. The book would come in when I was in the middle of something long and I figured I'd never get to it before it had to be returned. So then I'd go back on the waitlist, start something else, repeat. But finally, the stars lined up and I got to read this. Thank you, library.
