Monthly Round-Up – January

I’ve seen weekly and monthly round ups on a few blogs and I thought it was a great way to keep track of what I’ve done throughout the month

Books Purchased


I’d seen Sirens being spoken about all over twitter so I just had to buy it, it’s my current book and I’m really enjoying it so far. I finally read my first Jojo Moyes book this year and absolutely loved it, so when I spotted these two on offer in Tesco I had to pick them up. Finally I’d mean meaning to pick up The Princess Diarist since it was released, after Carrie Fisher’s passing I finally picked it up, that’s probably going to be my next read.

Books Recieved

I signed up for Netgalley this month and went on a slight request binge. I’ve was approved for the following books. You’ll already find reviews for some of these on the blog, and several more already scheduled for February.

      Loving NetGalley. Some of the publication dates are April or further away. When I was requesting I spread the dates out so I’m not too panicked or stretched.

      Yeah, might have to rethink the challenges. Seem to have under estimated how much reading I’d actually find time for. A lot of books are valid in more than one challenge though, maybe I should start restricting myself and only let each book count towards one challenge
