January Wrap Up 


I started out a new month and a new year with a great read about the power of family secrets. 

This really didn’t work for me.

LOVED this one, such an exciting read.

I really liked this police procedural/thriller.

I was on the blog tour for this one and liked the domestic suspense.


This was an outstanding debut.

This was a hilariously fun read.

I loved this debut, highly recommended. 

This was a dark YA novel and I really liked it.

I loved Jill’s debut novel! 

This was a dark and twisty one that I liked. 

This was a high octane thriller with a fantastic protagonist. 

This was an interesting take on a crime novel with a CSI as the protagonist. 


This was a really good historical fiction/mystery.

This was a simply stunning read.

This one was a fantastic start to a new series. 

This was a chilling, atmospheric read.

I loved this one. 

Another one from Jonasson that was fabulous.

I liked this one, it was unique and engaging. 

I loved this one. 

This one was just alright for me, I was left wanting more. 

This one was ok for me, not my favorite from this series. 

This one was awesome with an amazing twist! 

I loved this one.


This was a different type of read with uncomfortable subject matter. 

This was another stunner by Gardner.

Kind of a disappointing end to the month with this one. 

Overall 28 books, I actually listened to two more just haven’t reviewed them yet so I won’t count them, and read one more but it’ll be my first review for February. 
Great start to the new year, definitely read some really great books and my favorite was Sirens. 

Still doing good with my reading goals, here’s some highlights.

Tackle review requests: 

Still plugging away, I’m not caught up but making progress so that’s a win in my book!

Highlight more indie authors: 

Haven’t done much of this but still want to. 

Netgalley: 

Been good here except I keep getting invited to view titles so that doesn’t help! 🙈😱

Personal TBR: 

I read Between You and Me which was a personal one so on track there.

Piggy bank:

Doing awesome with this! 

Discussion Posts: 

Big fat fail here. Whoops.

Goodreads Goal: 

9 percent so that’s fine with me.

DNF: 

Yep, done this at least twice so far.

Say No: 

Yes, I’ve turned down several review requests. It’s hard but I did it!

TBC Challenge: 

Two books out of twenty. 

I feel good about my progress thus far, just need to shape up in a couple of areas. 

How was your month? Any must reads I may have missed?
