january wrap up

And With That, We’re on to February: Adios January!

Alright guys, we made it through January. How are we all doing with our resolutions? I’m actually still doing pretty dang good with my personal resolutions. As far as my bookish resolutions go, I haven’t been doing so hot. Oh well, there’s always February to try to improve, right?

Books Read in January (click links for reviews)

My favorite was easily Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. I also read both Veronica Speedwell novels by Deanna Raybourn. I attempted The Mask by Taylor Stevens and learned quickly it wasn’t for me. I also read Unicorn Tracks by Julia Ember, Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton, and Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye (reviews coming up soon).

2017 Bookish Resolutions Check-In:

  1. “Blog a little less.” I don’t know why, but I’ve been re-inspired to blog. As a result, I’ve been blogging a heck of a lot more.
  2. “Read more classics!” I have NINE (that’s it!) books in my possession left to read before I’m caught up with my TBR! I’m SO CLOSE! As such, I have been reading through that stack like it’s my job, and haven’t started on classics yet. Once I get caught up I’ll start tackling this resolution.
  3. “Read more advanced copies.” Well I read one in January and have 3 more in my possession that I will be reading soon. I think I’m doing pretty good with this one.

How are you all doing with your reading resolutions (if you made any)?! What was your favorite book you read in January?

    1. Thank you! I just need to blast through my current TBR pile (less than 9 books left!) and then I’ll be reading classics way more frequently. I’m so excited! There are so many good ones I want to read.

    1. Hahaha, I am trying to DNF more. If I’m not enjoying it there’s no reason for me to keep at it. Reading is supposed to be fun, right?!

    1. I liked it! Review is coming up this week I think. I haven’t decided if I’m going to read the sequel, though, especially after reading some mixed reviews. I hope you are loving it!

    1. Hahahaha – man those are my favorite books though, when it’s all you can do to focus on the task at hand and NOT think about them! I am so glad you loved it. Those books are so much fun 😀

    1. haha, thanks girl (: they are pretty expensive, but since I don’t have kids at this point in my life I spend my money on my bookish-children 😉

    1. Yes! That’s a great resolution. I am in a sense doing the same thing (except I allow myself to buy classics…. which really hits the wallet hard, lol) – slowly but surely we’ll get our TBR down only to have it explode again.
