January 2019 | Wrap-Up

Another month gone.

I’ve seen some people claim that January went on forever, but honestly? It flew by for me! I can’t believe we are entering month two of 2019!

This month did go by fast, but I still managed to read some great books, write some (hopefully) great content, and find some great posts.

This year I’m working on being a little bit more critical in my reading. I realized in 2019, a lot of books were five stars that… maybe didn’t deserve it. So I definitely expected to see more fours this month than fives.

  • The Disasters by M.K. England | 4/5 stars
  • Stay with Me by Mila Gray | 2/5 stars
  • Dread Nation by Justine Ireland | 4/5 stars
  • The Reminders by Val Emmich | 4/5 stars
  • Entwined by Heather Dixon Wallwork | 2.5 stars

I didn’t read any knock-out books this month. As I write this on January 31st, I’m about two-thirds of the way through The Cruel Prince, and if I had finished it in time, it would probably be my favorite. But, choosing a favorite for just what I read this month, I’d go with The Disasters by M.K. England! Such a fun, enjoyable ride!

I won a giveaway on Twitter! Which means that I will be receiving 8 contemporary 2019 ARCs (including one of my most anticipated books of the year, You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn!) I am beyond excited about this, so definitely look out for more reviews on my blog in the coming months!

January in general treated me really well. I got some awesome news and had some great times, so hopefully the rest of my 2019 is the same!

This year is serving some GOOD books and February is jam-packed with anticipated releases, but I’ll keep this as short as possible.

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Rare for a fantasy to be on my most anticipated list but here it is! This world honestly sounds so interesting, and I’m really excited to see if it’s as good as it seems. Releases February 26th

The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Every time I look at this cover, I feel like it’s the exact book that I wouldn’t like, but then I read the blurb, and the excitement builds all over again. Spy school! Oh, take me back to my reading roots, please. Releases February 5th.

Rayne and Delilah’s Midnite Matinee By Jeff Zentner

Okay, so I haven’t read any Jeff Zentner books since I devoured (and cried over) The Serpent King. I love that book, it was so moving, so Rayne and Delilah definitely have to make this list! Releases February 26th.

Bloom by Kevin Panetta and Savanna Ganucheau

I’ve just read so many rave reviews for this graphic novel, and they have definitely convinced me to add this to my TBR. Releases February 12th.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

Do I even need to talk about this author, anymore? Admittedly, I’m not quite as excited as I was about The Hate U Give, but nonetheless, I still definitely plan to read it. Releases February 5th.

How’s 2019 going for you guys so far? What were your favorite (or worst) reads? Any blog posts (of yours, or anyone else’s) that you want to shout-out? What are your most anticipated February releases? Tell me in the comments! 🙂

Stay bookish,

  3. I’ve had The Serpent King on my TBR for ages, but I even though I still haven’t read it – I’m so excited for his new one. I just feel like I’m going to love all his books once I get to them. Thank you so much for sharing my post, that’s so kind of you! 😊
