Wrap Ups

January '18 Wrap-Up

February 1, 2018

It’s the end of the first month of 2018, and I don’t know about you guys, but I am extremely pleased with how much reading I got done this month! I managed to knock out quite a lot of ARCs, as well as some backlist titles I’d been meaning to read for a while.
With my new semester starting a few weeks ago, I didn’t expect to read much in January, because one of my classes was supposed to be a YA Literature class. Bit of a funny story about that one – long story short, there were some problems with a brand new professor who was taking over the class, and I dropped it and switched it for a different elective, which has so far turned out to not have much homework at all. (Yay!)

    Awesome! I started up my semester too and because of that I was prepping more than reading. Hoping to change that in February.
    Too bad about Everless. I was so looking forward to it but so many people seem to be not liking/finishing it.

    Nice! I’m glad you had a really great reading month, with lots of four and five star reads! <3

      Thank you, Kelly! <3 I was honestly so surprised by how high my average rating for the month was!

  • Reply Kristen February 1, 2018 at 2:17 pm

    Wow you did a lot of reading! Go you! I love that you do an average rating for the month-3.9 is pretty great. I’m glad I’m not the only one who couldn’t finish Everless.

      Thank you, Kristen! My usual average is a little lower so I was really surprised! And yeah, it just wasn’t worth finishing for me. 🙁 I was gonna try it again some time, but a lot of people are now telling me not to bother, so I think I’ll just count it as a loss!

    Sounds like you had a great month! I have been too busy with Uni to do much reading sadly

    Great wrap up, I also read and loved The Cruel Prince and Wonder Woman in January 😀😀

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries February 4, 2018 at 9:55 pm

      Thank you! Ooh, glad you loved them both, too! I had a feeling I would like both of them but I didn’t expect to enjoy them as much as I did!
