January was an extremely busy month!
So, it’s been a few months since I’ve done a wrap-up post. In fact, I’ve been pretty absent on the blogosphere in general lately. Or at least always behind and barely posting. December was busy because of the holidays and then in January school came back with a vengeance. Good news is that things have slowly started to calm down so I should be around a lot more this month. And all of the being busy stuff aside I actually managed to read more than I’ve read in months in January. I only read three books but I would say that’s a big improvement over having only read one in November and one in December.

Gilded Cage by Vic James [REVIEW]
Gilded Cage was definitely my favorite read of January. It was so good! I’ve been reading so many contemporaries lately, mainly because I’ve been in a bit of a fantasy slump. So it was great to dive into one and enjoy it. Although, now I have another series that I desperately want the next book for.
I am officially on a sort of book buying budget, if you can call it that. I’m trying to save money this year so what I’m doing is only buying a book when I’m going to read it or if I’m going to read it soon. So far it’s working out pretty well since I only bought one book last month. We’ll see if it continues to work. 🙈

- A Stone in the Sea by A.L. Jackson (I got for free through Kindle.)
- The Debt by Karina Halle (I won in a giveaway.)
How is the first month of 2017 over already? It feels like just yesterday it was New Years. Truthfully it already feels like summer in Texas. I miss winter and I want it back.
Anyway! I’m really excited for this month because not only am I rereading one of my all-time favorite series, The Bone Season, but I’m also reading The Song Rising. I was lucky enough to get approved for an eARC and I’ve had to force myself not to pick it up for months. I wanted to wait until I had time to reread the previous books since it’s been over two years since I read The Mime-Order. So, yeah, my February TBR is The Bone Season!
However, since I’ve already reviewed all of The Bone Season books aside from The Song Rising that means there will be a lack of reviews on my blog this month. I’m hoping to fill that with some discussions or recommendation posts. I’ve had some ideas jotted down for a while but no time to put them into writing. This month I should have more time to do that. So be on the look out for those. 😁
I hope all of you have a fantastic February full of great reads! 💕
