I’ve done all kinds of recaps before and always ended up not doing them anymore because after some time I didn’t like them anymore. Every single month I thought about how to start doing monthly recaps again but I was lacking ideas on how to set it up and then it was too late to write them anyway. Somehow my own recaps always seemed so boring compared to others.
A new year always comes with a burst of motivation though, so here I am again, doing a monthly recap. This time I thought about only focusing on the positive and lists all kinds of favorite things of the month, meaning I will not only included books, but also other things, which is a first for me, so I’ll have to experiment a little with what I want to include.
January was such a great reading month for me. I mostly re-read books as you can see in my recap of my January re-reads but I also read a few new to me stories which were just as amazing.

I always love when other people collect note worthy blog posts so I thought I would start this too. As I only just thought about doing it, the list of blog posts is quite short this time.
As I constantly listen to music, especially while reading too, I thought to make this part of my recap too. I love browsing for new to me songs (too bad Spotify’s Monday list for me almost always sucks) and recs are always welcome. My most listened to/liked songs (some old, some new) this months were:
How was January for you? Read any good books?
