Hey everyone! I know I haven’t done wrap ups in a while but they are definitely back. There are going to be some changes though. I’m not going to be going super in depth on what I read or my specific ratings and do something more like bullet point updates. This may evolve and change over time, but I’m going to do what feels right to me.
If you want to see all the books I read and my ratings on books that I read that I don’t necessarily cover on the blog – you are more than welcome to add me as a friend or follow me over on Goodreads. There are some books that I don’t always write up full reviews for, but I always rate them over there.
While today is still technically the 31st, I don’t anticipate finishing any more books by the end of the day, so I’m fairly confident this post will be accurate. In the month of January I’ve completed a total of 32 books, which does include a good mix of poetry, manga, graphic novels and short stories/novellas in addition to full length novels.
- For my TBR game I ended up completing four of the six books I had selected, which I’m pretty happy with. Yes, I probably could have taken care of at least one of them this weekend, but it ended up being more of a self care weekend where I did other things. I will be carrying Shutter and Bed of Roses over until I finish them.
- For my Nancy Drew reread “challenge” I ended up completing three books, which were 12-14 – The Message in the Hollow Oak, The Mystery of the Ivory Charm and The Whispering Statue.
- For my Series I want to complete in 2021 goal I made progress on both Fruits Basket and Locke and Key.
Now for something completely new, I decided that when I can clearly define what my favorite book of the month was I would include it in my wrap up. This month I definitely had a favorite, which ended up being Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston. I cannot praise this book enough and encourage everyone to read it, if you want to find out more you can always check out my review of it for more info.
That’s going to cover it for this month! As I said I will likely make changes to what information I include in wrap ups, but for now this is the type of format I’m going to work with.
