January Wrap-Up Post

Well, today is the last day of January and, evidently, the last post of January. Today we’ll be highlighting all the posts of this month in one big wrap-up for anyone who missed them, and for anyone who’s interested.

This month, we started two new blog columns: It’s Real Monday, and Fiction Friday. It’s Real Monday is the day where we talk about our current reading obsessions, and what’s new on our to-be-read pile. And all other things bookish and life-ish. Fiction Friday is similar to It’s Real Monday, but instead of published books, we talk about writing, and the struggles of writing life, and the rewards of sticking through it.

Also this month, I finished reading and reviewed FOUR books! Woot, woot! One of them I didn’t review on my blog but on Goodreads instead. If you’d like to read that review, you can find it here.

This Month’s Posts:


And last but not least, a book list. Because we all love book lists. This one is my list of recommendations for you all. Of both books already published, and ones that will be coming out soon. So, here goes!

January Recommendation Booklist:

  1. Embers by Ronie Kendig – everyone needs to read this book! Seriously! There’s lots of fire magic and fire and royalty and more fire!
  2. Fire Dancer by Catherine Jones Payne – speaking of fire, this one was sooo good! There’s not only fire magic but also a little bit of sparks flying between to certain characters…. For all you romance and magic lovers out there, this one’s the bomb.
  3. Thief of Cahraman by Lucy Tempest – this one was a real gem! A retelling of Aladdin, but with the gender roles switched, it was a fresh take on a classic fairytale. And trust me, it does NOT end the way you think.
  4. Agnes at the End of the World by Kelly McWilliams – better keep an eye out for this one! Set to release on June 9th, this book had me laughing and crying all the way! I am very much in love with it, and I will shamelessly promote Agnes all over my blog until my last dying breath…. Or until I run out of things to say. But, hey, you get the idea.


That’s about it for now! Next month, I’m going to be compiling a romance booklist (both fantasy and fiction), so if there’s any romance books out there that you would recommend to your fellow reader, mention it in the comments below!


Let’s chat! Which was your favorite blog post of the month? What was your favorite read? Have any romance books to recommend for next month’s booklist? Let me know in the comments!
