Monthly Wraps: January 2016

Posted February 7, 2016 by Zeee in Monthly Wraps3 Comments


Last month’s deets on I Heart Romance & YA



January was very busy for me.  I mean, with work commencing in a trip to Northern California, getting stuck at the airport on our way back, then driving in the middle of the night back to Los Angeles, which took about 6 hours plus about an hour to get home….yeah, it was quite an experience.  I did manage to snag a few shots of the Redwoods.


We also heard some sad, sad news in January, right?  On the upside, I got Snape in my January Owl Crate box.  Very appropriate, if you ask me. #RIPAlanRickman

Let’s move on to the challenge stats!  I think I did a semi-good job last month.  I mean, what with all the craziness at work and LIFE.

I’ve read 7 books so far, 1 physical copy, and reviewed 1 book that I finished reading in 2016: Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.  I have also re-read 2 books: Throne of Glass by Sarah J.

LAST MONTH’S READSjanuary-2016-read



This book DEVASTATED me!  I mean, I just can’t get over what happened in this book!  The revelations, the twists, and the FEELS!  And yes, the kick-FREAKING-ass Celaena!  Yes, I need to review this book ASAP.


So excited for #OTSPSecretSister this month and Pocket Letters!  I’m also trying to be good this month and try to read and review more.  So far, I am failing 🙁

BTW, guess who was featured over at Brittany’s Book and a Beverage Feature?!

    • Thanks Lisa! I just used a screenshot of my Goodreads info. You can find the info in your Goodreads profile page under stats.

      The graph I made online. But you can use Excel for that 🙂
