Monthly Wrap-Up – January 2016

January was a fantastic reading month. I really pushed myself, because I want to read over 100 books this year, and excel at all my reading challenges. With that said, the format of my monthly wrap-up posts has changed so I can keep track of the books I’ve read for each challenge. Each challenge title is linked to that specific Goodreads shelf, so you can see at a quick glance what my ratings for each book were. I read 21 books total for January!

  1. Great minds think alike! I also changed up the layout of my monthly recap post. 🙂 WHOA you’re a superstar! 21 books?!? I was happy with 16 haha. AHHHHHHH I LOVE SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE!!! Please tell me you loved it! Wow wow wow it looks like you’re doing amazing with all of your challenges. Kudos to you! 🙂

    1. Nice, great minds do think alike! Haha thanks!! I’ve never read that much in one month; it’s usually 13-14 books tops. I LOVED SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE! IT WAS SOOOOOO GOOD! Thanks, I’m hoping I keep up a similar momentum with my challenges, even if I don’t read quite as much for the rest of the months. 🙂

  2. Yay for reading 4 fantasy books this month! I totally reread Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone this month, and really enjoyed it. I hope you enjoyed re-reading it too <3

    1. I’m hoping to read more fantasy books this month. I was thinking of reading the last 3 Throne of Glass books that are published, on top of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. A group of us are re-reading the HP series, one book a month. It’s super fun! Oh yes, I could re-read Harry Potter over and over again! <3
