Wrap-up: January 2022

After an eventful month (my computer finally gave up the ghost haha), we’re finally in February. January felt like three months packed into one and I feel like I’m entering February with three days of sleep deficit at least. But oh well. I read 50 books in that time too, I guess.

The key:
🐝 = favourite
πŸ•ŠοΈ = reread/rewatch/relisten
β˜€οΈ = 4 or 5 stars, highly recommend
☁️ = 3 or 4 stars, enjoyed/had fun reading
🌧️ = 2 or 3 stars, was alright/not for me but someone else might enjoy
🌩️ = 1 or 2 stars, bored out of my mind/it was awful
