It turns out that taking a break from work and life and spending more than a week on the ocean in the Caribbean, helped me make some progress on my NetGalley backlog and my Winter Reading List. Then I picked up a bit of a cold, which prevented me from reading for a few days.

You will see a lot of Zadie Smith in my upcoming reads as she is the author I am focusing on reading more of in January. (See my 2019 A Focus on Authors Reading Challenge)
