January Wrap up!

Miss Issippi

The month is over already, before we know it will be christmas again!  I had a really good reading month and read a total of 9 books. At the start of the month I made a post called Reading plans for 2016 where I made a list of what I would attempt to read each month  and I have nearly completed them apart from the classics.

1. Read a classic
2. Read a book from my Netgalley list
3. Read a library book
4. Read a book that I own
5. Read a graphic novel or comic
6. Read a short story or a collection
7. Read a non-fiction

Les Misérables

I am currently 300 pages in and was enjoying it until I came to the battle of waterloo. The writing in this book is miniture and has 12oo pages so it’s probably going to take me a couple of months. There are also a lot of words that I don’t know what the meanings are so I have to look a word up every few lines but it’s going  well.
