January 2014 Wrap-up

I can't believe it's February already!! Time has just flown by, and I'm slowly feeling my summer freedom slipping through my fingers. Before I know it I'll be back at University, slaving away over textbooks, rather than my preferred fiction books. *Sigh*. However, I think I've made a decent start to the year blogging wise, and I've kept up semi-regular posting which is one of my goals for the year. I managed to read 6 Books in total, writing reviews for 4 of them which can be found here...

All the books I read I enjoyed. My favorites would have to be Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano, her writing is just stunning, and Breathe by Abbi Glines it was just the perfect summer read, while I was away at the beach. In January I also read 2 other books which I did not review, which were A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, and Tango Makes Three (a picture book, about a gay penguin couple at the Central Park Zoo).

Up Next In February:


As you can see I'm definitely in a contemporary mood lately haha. It's the summer time, it makes me in the mood for romance. Although I do have plans to read Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff if I get the chance. But at the moment I'm just setting myself 4 books, a relatively easy goal.

I will also be participating in the February New Release Hop hosted By Bo-ok Nerd. This will be my first Giveaway ever so I'm super excited and a little nervous! I felt like I needed to give back this month since I have won a few books via these hops. They are so much fun and a great way to find new blogs and a chance to win some great books.

What books did You read in the Month of January, and which was your favorite? Book plans for the month of February?


  1. I really liked The Rules for Disappearing when I read it! And I got Perfect Ruin from Kindle Daily Deals the other day, so I'm excited to read that (:

    Also, I can't wait to see what you think of This Song Will Save Your Life. (:

    1. The Rules for Disappearing was good, although I originally thought it was a stand alone. But after that ending I'm definitely glad that there's a second book!
      Oh, Perfect Ruin was so good. I really enjoyed it, there are a few bits that are a little drawn out, but the author does a fantastic job at creating the world which really drew me in :)
