I know, I know, I’m finally getting around to this… at the beginning of March. I meant to do it sooner, but February was a weird month, so it just didn’t happen. But that’s okay, better late than never, right?

January was a fun reading month! I didn’t quite read all the books I wanted to, but I got to read (and reread!) some good ones!

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Read January 2nd-9th.

This book had been on my TBR shelf for a while, and I’m glad I started off the year with it! It was such a fun romance! My review is linked above. Purchase on Amazon here.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by She Who Shall Not Be Named

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Read December 19th-January 10th

It’s one of my biggest flaws that I’m a Harry Potter fan. I’m not gonna say anything about this but that the author is still cancelled, and that I already owned the audio book on audible, so she didn’t make anymore money from me.

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Read January 10th-January 16th

This book was SO GOOD. I don’t usually read suspense/thriller/mystery/horror, but I’m glad I read this! I actually finally got to watching the Netflix series a few weeks ago, and although it was almost completely different from the book, it was cool seeing and understanding all the nods to the book. Purchase on Amazon here.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by She Who Shall Not Be Named

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Read January 10th-January 24th

See above.

Lovely War by Julie Berry

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Read January 16th-January 25th

I had super high expectations for this one when I started it, but was sadly let down by it overall. My review includes my thoughts on trigger warnings, which I think is a really important conversation to have. Purchase on Amazon here.
