January at a Glance

Posted January 31, 2015 by Lori in Books / 0 Comments Tags: ,


I’m so glad January is over!! It’s not that I hate January really, I just get so tired of winter after a couple of weeks. I really wish winter and snow and cold lasted only two weeks and then it moved on to spring. Because I love the snow and the seasons and I would be sad if we never had either, but once it happens and can enjoy it for a couple of days, then I’m ready to say goodbye to it and move on. So hopefully February will bring us some warmer weather. But until then, here’s what happened on the blog this month…

Grasshopper Jungle There Will Be Lies Geek Girl (Geek Girl, #1) The Glass Arrow Reborn (Altered, #3) Rebound (Boomerang, #2)


Most Exciting Book Mail

Lion Heart (Scarlet, #3) The Summer of Chasing Mermaids Hold Me Like a Breath (Once Upon a Crime Family, #1)

Lion Heart by A.C. Gaughen: Was there really any question?! I’m so excited to get to read this! I’m still behind in February books but I’m going to work really hard to get through them so I can read this soon! Also, if you haven’t read this series yet, I highly recommend it! Lion Heart comes out in May, so if you want to wait to binge the whole thing, it still isn’t that much longer. And that might be less painful than having to wait for the third after finishing the second. That ending is killer!
The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler (eARC): It’s a Little Mermaid retelling plus Sarah Ockler! I’m so excited about this!
Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt: A Princess and the Pea retelling. As a mystery/crime thriller? I’m very intrigued!

It’s not hard to see a trend in YA books right now. Retellings are huge. I just hope they’re good!

Coming up in February

In case you haven’t noticed or seen, February is a crazy month for book releases! There are a ton! And I’ve been lucky enough to read a bunch already and that means there will be lots of reviews in February! Be on the look out for reviews of The Glass Arrow, Seeker, The Mime Order (which was a January book), When Joss Met Matt, and One of the Guys. There are a bunch more I still have to read so hopefully there will be even more reviews!

I’m also hoping that February will be the month I make a bunch of updates to the old posts on the blog. I’m participating in a Blogger Organization Challenge and that is one of February’s goals. Most of my old reviews don’t show up in my indexes because they aren’t updated but by the end of the month, they will be!

I hope you guys all had a great January and are looking forward to February. I’m hoping February brings warmer, snowless weather and amazing books to read! And if the weather sucks, I’ll just leave this here for you. Jake, Noel, Scott. Whatever you want to call him, I don’t think it matters.
