Today I am going to be doing my first ever Wrap Up and I am really excited. I read 33 books in the month of January which is a great start to the new year. I am not going to be listing every single book I read (because we would be here forever) but I will be mentioning the significant ones and grouping series together. So, without further ado, let’s get into it:
To start off the month, I started my Reread Challenge (in which I reread one of my favorite series per month). I reread the New Species Series by Laurann Dohner and I absolutely loved them. They were all just as good as I remembered! My reviews to each of these books can be found under Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance OR you can find them by my Goodreads reviews.
Next, I read Pleasure Unbound & Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione. This series is an Adult Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. My Pleasure Unbound review can be found here and my Desire Unchained review can be found here.
After that, I received an ARC of Meant to be Kept by Amelia Foster by the author in exchange for an honest review. It is an Adult Contemporary Romance that involves cheating. I gave it 3.25 Stars and my review can be found here.
Next, I read the first three books in the Dropout Series by Lux Carmine. The series is a Young Adult/New Adult Reverse Harem Romance. My review for the books can be found under RH OR you can find them on my Goodreads.
After that, I read my first DNF of the year. My review and the reasons why I DNF’d this book can be found here.
Books By Alexa Riley:
For those who don’t know, I am a big Alexa Riley fan. This co-author duo writes A LOT of short books and, because of that, they are my most read author. I have read over 50 of their books and there are so many more to get to. I decided to put them at the bottom of this list in their own separate category so that all of the books would be grouped together instead of randomly spread throughout this list. Anyways, I read 8 books by Alexa Riley this month and here they are:
My reviews for each of these books can be found individually by their title below:
- His Princess
- Stolen Princess
- Claimed Princess
- Forbidden Princess
- Unexpected Princess
- Owning the Beast
- Be Mine… Or Else
- Forever Winter
January In Review:
This was a great start to the year for me. I read more books than I did last year, got some rereading done, and I read a larger variety of genres than I normally do. Hopefully, I can stay at this pace. I was able to read 313 books last year and my ultimate goal is 365 so I’m crossing my fingers that this is the year to do it.
As far as the quality of books I read, I’m pretty satisfied. I rated most of the books I read highly and I only DNF’d one book. The series that I reread was just as great as I remembered and it brought back a lot of feels. I am really happy that I decided to do this challenge.
A Sneak Peak Into February:
I have actually already decided which series is going to be a part of my Reread Challenge for February. I decided to go with Grey Wolves by Quinn Loftis. I don’t currently have any reviews for this series up because I read it before I started writing reviews. It is one of my favorite series of all time and I am SO excited to start it in February. Be on the look out for those reviews soon.
You can also be sure that plenty of RH books on top of Alexa Riley will be read in February. I am also debating starting another popular series, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. I would really appreciate it if you would comment and let me know if this series deserves all of the hype it has gotten and if I should read it.
If you have made it this far, I truly thank you. It means a lot. That about sums up my January Wrap Up. I am so happy that I finally got to do this and I hope you are not disappointed. I try to read as many books as I can each month and enjoy my time while reading them. What are some of the books you read this month? Do we have any in common or are any of these books on your TBR?
