January Book Haul & Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1

Hello everyone! Welcome to my first Book Haul & Wrap up of 2017! I can honestly say that I never thought that I would make it to be 22 years old, nevertheless make it to 2017. So here I am with January’s Book Haul & Wrap Up!

The books I bought/received this month are:

unnamed-9

  • The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
  • Just One Day (Just One Day, #1) by Gayle Forman

I actually set up a loose TBR pile for January. As you can see to the left, there are 10 books there. The books are as from left to right:

I have got to be honest with you. I haven’t really been reading all that much because I’ve been devouring my time with watching anime. I still think about books and all of that hub-bub, but my love for anime has come back full force lately. So the anime universe has taken up a lot of my time! I’m committed to reading though. I am not giving up on my love for books just because anime is back in my life.

The books I read this month are:

unnamed-12

  • True Born by L.E. Sterling
  • Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega, #2) by Patricia Briggs
  • Lead (Stage Dive, #3) by Kylie Scott
  • Kinslayer (Stormdancer, #2) by Jay Kristoff
  • Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan
  • Shadowlands (Shadowlands, #1) by Kate Brian

The other posts I’ve posted this month are:

TBR #22, & TBR #23 — Where I talk about books that are on my TBR!

My 10 Best Reads of 2016 — I think the title is self-explanatory enough for ya’.

Books that I’m Looking Forward to this Winter 2017 | Part 3 — Books being published in February that I’m particularly looking forward to.

The books I reviewed this month are:


Other general thoughts as of late:

I’ve changed my Goodreads Challenge from my original yearly 50 books to 25 books. I’m planning to be more out and about this year, so I won’t have time to read a lot like I did in 2016. So 25 books this year would be perfect. If I read less, that’s okay, and if I read more than 25 books, then great!

I can sense that a reading slump is near — I don’t mind it actually. It took me way longer than expected to finish reading Tell the Wind and Fire (about a week or so). With having all of this free time on my hands, I’ll be able to do more stuff!

Happy Reading!
Adele
