First month of the year done! This month actually felt like it went by really slow, to be honest. It was a pretty crazy month for me with so many things going on, but I still managed to read quite a few books! I’ll have a picture post up for the month of January at some point of the random pictures that I took throughout the month, aside from my photo a day pictures that I’ve been posting all month. For now I’m just going to jump right into my January wrap up though. You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.
Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read by myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month of January.
Long Way Home by Katie McGarry – 4 out of 5 stars.
I love the Thunder Road series so much and I am sad that it’s over. 😦 I finally read Long Way Home and I am so glad that I did. It was so good and a good way to end the series. I did love the first two books a little more though.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – 5 out of 5 stars. – Review.
It’s rare that I love a really hyped book, but I really loved The Cruel Prince. There were quite a few twists and it was so much fun to read. Feel free to check out my review for more.
Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum – 5 out of 5 stars.
I really loved Tell Me Three Things. It was a quick read, pretty fun, and cute. I am excited to read Julie Buxbaum’s book What to Say Next.
A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen – 4 out of 5 stars. – Review.
I really enjoyed A Taxonomy of Love. It was pretty interesting and weird, but it was still a good story. It was also interesting to learn a little about Tourette Syndrome. Feel free to check out my review for more.
The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye – 4 out of 5 stars.
The Crown’s Fate was really good! I enjoyed it and read through it pretty quickly. Lots of different things happening and the ending was really great. I gave it one less star than the first book, because while I did really like The Crown’s Fate, it wasn’t as good as the first book.
Textrovert by Lindsey Summers – 3 out of 5 stars.
I flew through Textrovert, but it was a short book (230 pages) and it had text message bubbles that took up page space, lol. BUT it was a really cute book and fun to read. I easily guessed a lot of what was happening, but it was still pretty enjoyable and a quick read. I read half on Sunday (1/29) night and the other half on Monday (1/30). I probably could have read it in an entire day if I didn’t continue my rewatching of all the 7th Heaven episodes on Hulu LOL.
These are the books that I listened to the audio versions throughout the month of January.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – 3 out of 5 stars.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater – 3 out of 5 stars.
I like this series, but I don’t love it. I think I’ve rated every single book so far three stars besides the first book. I think I gave that one 4 stars. It holds my attention, but I’m not jumping up and down with excitement for it. Kind of sad, because I know so many people love this series. I am hoping to read The Raven King in February.

These are the books that I started to read in the month of January, but didn’t get a chance to finish them yet.
What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum
I mentioned this one earlier in my post. I had What to Say Next on hold at my library for awhile and it finally got checked out to me, so I am reading that. I only have about two weeks before it gets turned back into the library, so I better get a move on. I actually had a ton of e-books on hold at the library and my library thought it would be cool to check almost every single book out to me at the exact same time. Last week I literally got six books checked out to me. SIX! I had to return two of the six, because I just can’t with all those books LOL.
What did you read in January? Have you read any of the books that in January? Feel free to link me to your wrap up posts, so I can check them out!
