We are through an entire month of 2017 already, how did that happen and where did January go? This year is just going to fly.

My numbers are down but I did okay considering the month we had, and school holidays. I would love to hope things got a little less hectic in February but I won’t be holding my breath.

In December I recorded my desire to get one book off my bought wishlist read a month and I managed to do that this month so that’s off to a good start. Not sure I will get one this month because my last Harlequin package was EXCITING!!!

I added a new category in my list this month to show how many of my reads are for the book club because that does sometimes have an impact on what I am reading.

Total Books I read in January: 6
5 Female authors/ 1 Male author
6 Fiction novels
6 print/ 0 digital
Books in a series: 2
5 stars on Goodreads: 3
4 stars on Goodreads: 3
Books that qualify for AWW2017: 1
Books for B&L Book Club: 5

No digital reads in January may have had an effect on my numbers but there wasn’t an opportunity to get one in, though there was one released that I was looking forward to so perhaps I will try and get that in for February.

6 books and they were all 4 and 5 star reads so picking a favourite and a least favourite is not easy, so I’m not going to do it. They were all solid reads.

Book Club reads this month were quite a mixed bag and the reviews coming in have been positive.

Anticipated reads for February are all eclipsed by Long Way Home that I have been waiting on for a very long time. I would love to hang the pile and let it queue jump but there are a couple of February book club titles that I must read first.

Only a brief wrap up this month because first week back at school has me exhausted, and I just want to be reading.

What have you read and loved this month?

  1. I read the Florentine Bridge by Vanessa Carnivale – a definite 5*+ read, absolutely loved it, also read Phil Collins’ biography Not dead yet – really liked it too.

    1. I’m not big with biographies though there are a couple in my house I wouldn’t mind getting to. And the Florentine Bridge does look good.
