As you may remember, I declared 2020 my Year of Historical Reading. Check out this blog entry and my appearance on the Sarah’s Bookshelves Live podcast to learn more about this project. Each month, I will post an update on how I am progressing!
As a reminder, I hope to make 85% of my reading historical fiction and nonfiction. It is a lofty goal but one that I am excited to reach for in 2020. I am also participating in the Unread Shelf Project and hope to get through many of the 133 unread historical fiction and nonfiction books that I own this year!
In January, I finished 6 books, all historical fiction and nonfiction – so far, so good! I had 3 super long books (over 600 pages) that bogged me down a bit. Can books over 600 pages count as two books?
Here are my books for January, all 4 and 5 star reads for me. I have indicated if they were pulled from my unread shelves, purchased, or borrowed from the library.
As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner – own
The Last Year of the War by Susan Meissner – own
Give Me Liberty by L.M. Elliott (middle grade) – own
London by Edward Rutherfurd – library
The Time In Between by María Dueñas – library
Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow – own
Stats for January:
- 100% historical fiction and nonfiction
- 4 of 133 unread books
- 2 library books
