Bookmark Lit Bulletin | January 2022

Posted February 4, 2022 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 0 Comments

BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I was determined to start 2022 on the right foot and I definitely did! I was hoping to squeeze one more book in for January but just didn’t read much during the last week of the month. I’ve been very burnt out lately training a new employee at work and trying to balance all the things, so reading took a backseat. I’m glad I cranked through seven books before then!
