January 2018 | Monthly Wrap Up

The first month of 2018 has come and gone and, let me tell you, it felt like a long one to me. it's hard to be like "I think this will be a good year" with what's going on in the world politically, but in 2017 I saw friends more then I ever have before and I'm hoping to continue to see them regularly in 2018. Probably not as often, because money is a thing, but I'm still hopeful.

Anyway, on to what I read! I didn't read a lot ofr the first two weeks or so of the year, just because I was so drained from New Years with friends. I love that time, and wouldn't change our new tradtion for the world, but I need time to recover afterwards. I did end up reading quite a bit in January, though, I'm not sure what happened but I read a lot.

It was a really good reading month, as I mentioned. I read a lot of romance because, apparently, that's what I was in the mood for? Which is weird for a lot of personal reasons, and I'm still working on fully figuring it out myself but there's a discussion post on the way. Mostly, though, I think it's just I know what's going to happen, and I know it's going to end happy. I do, however, like my romance with more then just the romance - it's the main plot, of course, but not the only plot.

Besides that, I read a lot of really good stuff this month! It was my first time diving into K.J. Charles, Courtney Milan, and Tessa Dare. I enjoyed books by all three and will definitely be reading more by all of them - as already shown by my K.J. Charles spree, whoops, and the two Milan books I read.

I'm also continuing my Mistborn reread at a much slower pace, having just reread Shadows of Self this month, which I'd started last month. I'm looking forward to continuing with it, just also impatient and I know Bands is going to hurt as much the second time around as the first.

I, also, read Let's Talk About Love this month, which came out this month and I, actually, sat down and read it the day it came out, literally the same day. Black ace MC was enough to make me go yes, but there's also the friendships. Her relationship with her best friends, who are dating each other, just gave me a lot of feelings and I loved how much they loved each other? Like they all just love each other a lot and phew, feelings.

So that's what I read in January, good start to the new year reading wise, at the very least. Let me know if you've read any of these books and how your reading is going.

Happy reading!
