A Month in Reading – January 2017

01 Feb

january

I always mean to do an end of month summary for my reading but to be honest, i’m never actually organized enough to get it done…so this is new for me – but its one of my blogging resolutions for 2017. I’m finding it hard to believe that it is the end of January already – I mean, this month flew by! On the non-blogging front – I started a new job (yay) – but have been extremely busy (boo!) which is reflected in both my reading and my blogging. But without further-ado, a look back on January.

Total Books Read in January: 18
Total Books Listened to in January: 7

crossing-heartsFirst Book of the Year:
Crossing Hearts – Kimberly Kincaid

simply-sexualLongest on TBR:
Simply Sexual – Kate Pearce – 2899 days!

New Authors Discovered (that I will read again):
Chanel CleetonFly with Me – military contemporary romance
Lilia Moon – Fettered series – Yield, Reveal and Desire – erotic BDSM romance (on the introductory side)
Chris CampilloThen He Showed Up – contemporary romance

Books I’m looking forward to in February
The Invisible Library – Genevieve Cogman – Young Adult/Steampunk/Mystery
Eleventh Grave in Moonlight – Darynda Jones – Urban Fantasy
The Valiant – Lesley Livingston – Young Adult/Historical Fiction (umm, female gladiator – yes please!)
Devil in Spring – Lisa Kleypas – Historical Romance

Overall, I read less books this month than I typically do, but I had some solid reads and several new authors I can’t wait to read more by in the near future.

How about you – how was your January reading escapades?

    You really did get through a good number of books in January. I see Lisa Kleypas and Darynda Jones books being looked forward to. Enjoy!

      yup! Lisa is one of my auto-buy authors; Daryna I get from the library but she is normally a solid read
