January 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

Did it take me 3 tries to write the correct year in this post title? Maybe.

January felt like it was both exceptionally long and also like it only lasted a week. I’m glad that it’s over and that my birthday month is finally here, even if I’m only planning to bake myself cupcakes and FaceTime with my parents. (A bit of a change from how I spent my 26th birthday last year!)

READING PROGRESS

I had a really strong start to the year and managed to read 7 books! As soon as the NHL started up again, though, more evenings were spent watching my team play (and lose…) than anything else. Hopefully I’ll be a bit more motivated to read once I pick up my million library holds!

REVIEWS

  • Beach Read by Emily Henry | 4.5 stars | Not quite as light and fluffy as expected, but I absolutely loved the romance
  • Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas | 3 stars | I loved the representation, but wanted a bit more from the murder mystery plot

BOOK PURCHASES/FROM PUBLISHERS

I received ARCs of One of the Good Ones and Love in English from HarperCollins Canada/HCC Frenzy and I can’t wait to read them!

Simon & Schuster Canada sent me an ARC of Chain of Iron and it is HUGE. Definitely going to dedicate a weekend to reading this soon!
