January Wrap-Up (2020)


Hello Lovely Readers!

January has been the best month of reading I have ever had! Maybe that’s why my blogging as suffered a bit when it comes to writing them beforehand (minus reviews). I also have been enjoying Minecraft again with my husband and his cousin.

This month I managed to 27 read books, 1 graphic novel, and 7 mangas.

I doubt I will ever read this many again but never say never!


My favorite read was either Fae Hunter, The Great Gatsby, or The Bone Charmer! I can’t decide so don’t make me!

My least favorite read was Regretting you and yeah. If you would like to know my thoughts I have a review for it.

  1. Holy wow, 27 books is amazing?! Lol that’s definite goals. Seeing you rate Regretting You as one star makes me kinda glad that I wasn’t caught up in its hype. I wasn’t sure it’d be for me so I didn’t pick it up right away and now I’m kinda sure I won’t read it lol Sorry to see that A Girl’s Guide to the Outback was two stars though! Looks like a pretty amazing reading month though 🙂

    1. January was definitely strong for reading but not for anything else. 🤣 haha you would enjoy that one star! To be honest I completely forgot about that book until I went back to good reads.
