January Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(18).jpg

So surprisingly enough January ended up being a decent month even though half way through I felt like I was on the verge of both a blogging slump and a reading slump. However, I kind of forced my way through it and now I’m hoping to get a little bit more on track this month.

Books Read This Month: 9

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel CaineHeart of Iron by Ashley PostonDaughter of the Burning City by Amanda FoodyThe Ravenous by Amy LukavicsBad Romance by Heather DemetriosLocke & Key, Vol. 2 by Joe HillLocke & Key, Vol. 3 by Joe HillLocke & Key, Vol. 4 by Joe HillLocke & Key, Vol. 5 by Joe Hill

I have to say I was kind of disappointed that I didn’t read more and that all of the books were “meh”, the only ones I enjoyed were “Bad Romance” and the Locke & Key graphic novels. Everything else didn’t live up to my expectations, unfortunately.

    Looks like you had an amazing blogging month Heather. Finishing 9 books is amazing but i’m sorry most of them were meh for you and you didn’t enjoy them more. Hopefully February will hold more exciting ones for you! I managed to read 6 books in January and I enjoyed them all so I was super lucky, i’m also super proud of myself for doing 6 books with uni. I don’t think I’ll hit that this month with deadlines but who knows!

    Hope you have a fabulous february x

    Congrats on the great reading month πŸ™‚ I’m so sorry to hear that you didn’t like Daughter of the Burning City, I really enjoyed that one. I’m glad to hear that you liked Bad Romance though. I’ve been considering adding it to my TBR for a while now and I finally might!

      Daughter of the Burning City was alright, I didn’t hate it but I was expecting a lot more from it and Bad Romance was excellent I highly recommend it! πŸ™‚

      Thanks Michelle, I hope you have an amazing month as well!

      I definitely recommend Bad Romance it’s one of those books that’s tough to read but so worth it, I’d love to see what you think! πŸ™‚
