January Monthly Wrap Up

Happy 2020 everyone!!

We’ve come to the end of January, a month where hibernating indoors with a good book is highly recommended. With my new posting schedule, I’ve aimed to review 8 books each month, which should not only keep me on track to reach my Goodreads goal for the year, but also keep the pressure off (as last year, I was really pushing for 10.)

I got a lot of reading done over my holiday break, so I managed to get ahead of my reading schedule, which has been nice since I had some crazy things go on over the course of the month (more on that in a minute!). I managed to review the following for January:

  1. The Mothers by Brit Bennett
  2. Heart on the Page by Wendy Brown-Baez
  3. All the F*cking Mistakes by Gigi Engle
  4. Unbreak Me by Michelle Hazen
  5. The Girl in Red by Christina Henry
  6. The Bear by Andrew Krivak
  7. The Burnout Generation by Anne Helen Petersen
  8. Normal People by Sally Rooney


2020 started off a little rough for me, but progressively got better. I had a wonderful New Years with my family (with a tad too much champagne, but hey, why not on such an occasion!), but shortly after delved into a series of car problems. After a struggle, the best solution came to me… friends, meet Merlot, my new whip!


Additionally, my normally quiet January was a little hectic as far as work goes, so my downtime wasn’t existent- therefore, I didn’t get as far ahead as I would have hoped for in my blogging schedule for February. However, I did get a lot of reading done so I know I’ve got some stellar books headed your way!

Speaking of schedule, I hope you’ve noticed that there are some new spotlights happening over the weekend- the Author Spotlight, where I basically fangirl over some of my fave authors; and the Blogger Spotlight, where I compile some sage words of blogging advice from YOU, my fellow bloggers! I’m really excited about them both, and hope you all will enjoy them!

Lastly, this month I got to attend a book event for Cassie Chambers, author of Hill Women. I loved the memoir, and I was really excited to meet the author and learn more about her writing process and thoughts post-publication. I will be sharing the discussion in February, so stay tuned for all the details!


So that’s the wrap on January, and I look forward to sharing more good stuff with you next month!

Happy Reading!
