Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2019

 

It feels as if January was a year, not a month. It was the most difficult, challenging, and emotionally draining one. And I just hope February turns out better.

On a personal level, I know I took a hit. A hard one. But on the blogging side, I couldn’t do better. I love all the support everyone has given me over the last year. And I can’t wait for you to see what I’ll be thinking up next for this little blog of mine. So let’s get to my fangirl-filled wrap-up!

Top Ten Tuesday | 2019 Books I’m Anticipating the Most

Okay, I’ll admit: I made this list much smaller than it truly is. I wouldn’t be surprised if it balloons to more than 30 books. I may want to reign in my TBR list, but I doubt I’ll tackle that task in my lifetime.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For the next topic, we show off our anticipated reads of the first half of 2019. So my list may be short, but at least I won’t keep you here for forever. 😉

I hope you enjoy my picks. And I can’t wait to see what you choose for your list!

The Joy of Christmas Book Tag

Morning, lovely bloggers!

Christmas is quickly approaching. I’ve been all over the place lately, and I need to catch up on everything, especially blogging (I apologize for the future attack on your blog feed, which will soon be blowing up). So thankfully, my holiday break has officially started, and it’s definitely needed.

I found this great tag on Kristin Kraves Books. You’re missing out if you haven’t visited her blog, so head over there now!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Slay to Get Early

As I write this post, I’d like nothing more than to crawl into the darkest hole this planet has to offer and cry. I just came back from watching Infinity War. And my entire childhood has taken a flying leap off the cliff of agony. So if you don’t hear any spunk in the post, well, you know why.

For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, we get to talk about books we’d slay to get early. I’ve been waiting to do this post. No, I won’t write about A Court of Frost and Starlight, even though I’d love to. So here are my picks:

 

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

WE HAVE A COVER. Yes, you can scream as much as me. I won’t judge. I’ve been loving Leigh’s Grishaverse, and although I do need to read the first series, I adore her world. And I cannot help but love the pirate king.

Who else is excited about this book?!

 

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

Yeah, I said I wouldn’t talk about ACOFAS. I never said I’d leave out a Maas book though. This series just gets better after each book. Catwoman is one of my favourite DC characters, so there is no way that I’d miss out on this book.

 

The Wicked King by Holly Black

The Cruel Prince is one of the most satisfying books I’ve read in a long time. Jude and Cardan are my OTP, and I cannot wait to see how she tricks more faeries and how Cardan will think of a way to get back at her.

 

Archenemies by Marissa Meyer

I’m not feeling the name, but I want the book. Marissa brings a new twist to superhero books. Yeah, yeah, I should have rated the first book much better than I have, but I need more Nova in my life. And I want to see how she’ll take down the Renegades.

 

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

I love making myself suffer even more. After reading Lord of Shadows, I didn’t think I’d want to pick up the finale in this series. But I’m Shadowhunter trash, and I just love misery. 🙃 With this book though, I don’t think the Blackthornes or any of the Shadowhunter families will get a happy ending
