December/January Wrap-Up!

monthly-wrapup

Hello! Once again, I’m combining December and January’s wrap up, because it just felt silly to write a separate one for December and then January.  I want to start fresh and stay on track next month, and honestly, if I wrote them separately, I probably wouldn’t get January’s wrap-up up until the middle of February…So, here we are!

BOOKS READ


December

– Letters from Father Christmas by J. R. R. Tolkien \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Bridge by Karen Kingsbury \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Angel of Forest Hill by Cindy Woodsmall \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– What Light by Jay Asher \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Christmas Shoppe by Melody Carlson \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

January

– The You I’ve Never Known by Ellen Hopkins \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

STANDOUT BOOK OF THE MONTH

December

The Bridge by Karen Kingsbury

January 



It’s a tie between A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and Replica by Lauren Oliver.  They’re both such different books from each other, and I thoroughly loved both of them SO much!

BOOK HAUL

Between Christmas, review copies, a contest (I won a SIGNED & PERSONALIZED copy of Wayfarer!! 😍), and honestly, just pure lack of self-control on my part, I have acquired quite a few books these past two months! 🙊

I finished up my Countdown to Christmas series.

I shared with you all my reading & blogging goals for 2017 as well as my top ten books of 2016!

That wraps up December and January!  My goal for February is to really stay on track with my blogging, because I have been really lacking lately.  Let me know if you have any goals for February!

    Seems like you had two nice reading months! I’m so happy for your signed copy (I haven’t read Passenger or Wayfarer but I can imagine your excitement 😀 )
    I got A Thousand Salt Kisses Later too 🙂
