I’ve been at home for three days now and.. I honestly thought I’d love being on pregnancy leave. Of course life has to disappoint me and make sure that isn’t the case at all. So far. Not being able to do anything, not being allowed to do other things.. It’s driving me absolutely bonkers, people! I’m hoping to get used to this soon because.. I haven’t been the friendliest person to be around lately. So sorry, boyfriend. Still love you though.
In any case – January’s over and done with. Which means it’s not even two weeks before the little one arrives and cue the freak-out! So much stuff left to do! But.. First things first.. Wrapping up January!
Because that’s obviously the most important thing to be doing right now, haha.
So, let’s see what I read and reviewed – and what reviews are yet to come your way!
As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page!
The star-ratings link back to my reviews if I’ve posted them or added one on Goodreads!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #1 by Jenny Han ~ ★★★★★ [RTC in February!]
Godsgrave #2 by Jay Kristoff ~ ★★★★★
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody ~ ★★☆ [RTC in February!]
Archenemies #2 by Marissa Meyer ~ ★★★★★ [RTC in February!]
I started and finished four books from my jar! I did pick out Escaping From Houdini as well, but haven’t finished that one yet. I’m hoping to finish it this weekend but.. who knows.. I haven’t really been up to reading physical books lately? Oh, and I got a Nintendo Switch earlier this week so that one’s been tempting me as well..
OTHER BOOKS ON MY OWNED TBR I READ
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson ~ ★★★★ [RTC in February!]
ARC’S I READ
I read Imber! Which was my sole goal for Destiny’s Late-a-thon. I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF. And angry too, because it was such an awesome book that I ended up buying myself a physical copy. I should’ve read it sooner, guys.
KINDLE BOOKS I READ
Drive Me Wild by Julie Kriss ~ ★★★★☆
A Deadly Delivery by April Fernsby ~ ★★☆
Christmas Cookie Baby by Laura Marie Altom ~ ★
Swimmer Boy by Jay Argent ~ ★★
Ride Baby Ride / Rocky Ride by Vivian Arend ~ ★★★★☆
Like I said, I’ve been reading a fair share of my Kindle books this month. There were some good ones and bad ones but.. overall I’m quite happy with the free books I hauled last year?
Total number of books read: 13
Average rating: 3.69
BOUGHT AFTER READING THE ARC
BOUGHT MYSELF [SIGNED, YAY!]
Look at that! I’m actually proud of myself, hah. I set myself some book buying rules, so my hauls should be fairly.. small from now on. Fingers crossed, right?
I have read more than I thought I would this month. With my goal at 75 books for 2019, I’d say 13 is a brilliant way to start! Who knows what’ll happen though.. I might not make it after all, haha.
In any case, I’m proud of what I read and proud of my small-ish haul. That’s what counts.
How was your January? Did you read many books?
Got a good start on your 2019 reading challenges?
Is there a review of mine you’re really looking forward to reading in February?
