January went super fast, didn’t it? It feels like it did for us. All of a sudden it was here, and then it was gone. I hope you all had a good one! We know that we did. Tons of reading and good books.
However, we have another announcement. With the start of our Instagram (and if you guys don’t already follow us, you totally should) we’ve decided that we’re not going to do book hauls here. We’ll do them over there since it’s a little bit easier. So, yet another reason to follow us!
Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.
So, I had a solid start to the year. 14 books total, all a nice mixed bag of good and bad. I’d say, more good than bad. A lot of them, I wished were better than they actually were, but, you know what? That’s okay.

Wow, I didn’t expect to read 8 books this month. Three of them were five-star reads. THREE! Most of them I finished within a few days of starting them. I don’t think I’ve read so many books in a short time like that. I was on a pretty decent reading streak this month and I’d like to continue that on into February because I’ve got a lot of books I want to read and a short month to do it in.
- We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
- How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake
- The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- Peter Darling by Austin Chant
- Difficult Women by Roxane Gay
- Wonder by R.J. Palacio
That wraps it up for me. I read three books this month that are absolute favorites of mine and to me, that’s very much a win.
