Monthly Book Report ~ Month 1 of Year 2019…So far so good!

Posted February 4, 2019 by Michelle in Monthly Book Report / 6 Comments

Since I am doing a few challenges this year I thought I would use this space as an update for how I am doing with the challenges and how my month went in reading. The book report is all about the books.

I did very good this month, at least compared to last year. Had my first 5 star review (last one was September 2018) and have been giving out more 3 stars then I have had in a while. I believe my mood is changing to a different genre and I couldn’t be happier because I LOVE fantasy and apparently I am craving SciFi also. If I want to escape reality these are the best options for it. lol

LifeL1k3 was amazing, I can’t wait for the next book which just so happens to come out on my birthday!

For the Reading Assignment I have decided to pick KN Lee for the first semester. I am loving her books, I am going to switch in the summer semester to another author but for now I am planning to binge as much as I can because she has a TON of books that are just amazing and since some of them are fantasy this is a prefect fix for my current mood.

I am hoping my reading will continue like this in Feb. I want to get some audio books in if I can. I plan to start listening to those when I start designing again at the end of this month. Fingers crossed this is a good reading year!

  1. Man! You are killing it with the reading, Michelle! I’ve only read 4 books so far this year!! *gasp* It’s weird because I usually read 10 books a month. But my reading has been S…L…O…W so far this year. And it’s not the books I’ve read. It’s just me and life. Anyway, you go girl! I hope you continue picking books that rock your world – or at least don’t suck. 😉

    Sorry I’ve been MIA. Again – life. I know you understand. Miss you!! {{{big hugs}}}
