January 2020: Wrap-Up

-JANUARY WRAP UP: (7) BOOKS-


A follower on my Instagram recently chided me (gently) for complaining about the small number of books I seemed to be finishing, and being disappointed in myself about it. I had intended to start this January wrap-up post on a much more negative note, but since that interaction, I've truly come to realize (and excuse my cliché here) that it's the journey that counts. It's the books I DO manage to finish, and the experiences I had while reading them. Reading 2 truly meaningful books should matter just as much as getting through 10 mediocre ones. What I mean to say is, every book matters, and I should immediately stop seeing quantity as the one true accomplishment, and start focusing on the great content I'm consuming. 

With that said, I read 7 out the 10 books I intended to read in January AND THAT'S OKAY. Here they are in the order that I read them:





  • Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert | Jan 2-6 | ★★★
  • Lucky Caller by Emma Mills | Jan 6-9 | ★★★ | REVIEW
  • A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer | Jan 6-12 | ★★★★★ | REVIEW
  • The First Mistake by Sandie Jones | Jan 19 | ★★★ | REVIEW
  • Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire | Jan 14-20 | ★★★★
  • Bunny by Mona Awad | Jan 9-22 | ★★★★
  • The Better Liar by Tanen Jones | Jan 23-31 | ★★
