January 2019 Reading (Challenges & TBR)

JANUARY READING

In order to keep myself on track, I'll be making a monthly post detailing my TBR pile for the month. This will include the books I've chosen for my reading challenges, approved eARCs/review copies, and book club picks.

The reading challenge books I chose will be set in motion by the Pick-A-Theme Reading Challenge by She's Got Books on Her Mind. The theme I pick for each month will need to be present in all of the books for that particular month.


THEME THIS MONTH: COLD

(books will contain a cold-hearted individual as one of the main or secondary characters, will be a non-fiction book detailing cold-hearted acts/people/topics, or be set in a cold climate/have a cold atmosphere)


EXTERNAL CHALLENGES
(some books listed twice as it fits more than one challenge)
