Monthly Wrap Up: January 2020

Wow, what a way to kick off the year! 2020 started off with back-to-back reads I absolutely fell in love with and kept going strong from there.  Although I had a slight hiccup with a rare DNF, I actually managed to read all the books I had planned for January, and started a little early on my February TBR!  All my reviews are linked below (including a few catchup reviews from December), so if you missed anything, now’s the time to find out what I thought!

The Great Series Read Project Update

So, the bad news, no sequels read this month.  The good news?  I started two series that I will HAPPILY make priority reads for this project!  SPELLSLINGER was a quick fun book that absolutely got its claws into me, and I’ve already ordered book two and plan to make it my February goal for the GSRP. I also succumbed to a mood read and FINALLY read NEVERNIGHT and boy oh boy am I definitely reading the sequel.  February’s looking crowded, so I’ll probably continue on with this series in March.

  1. Why is it so easy to start new series compared to finishing them? I have this issue myself and have a few high priority sequels on my 2020 TBR that I am going to make myself finally pick up. Other than that DNF, looks like you had a pretty good reading month. Hope February is even better!
