January 2019: The Month Of BUSY But Also Exciting Things {Monthly Wrap Up}

January 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my January wrap up!

January usually takes forever, but this year it has really flown by. A lot of that has to do with the fact that A) we are in the final stages of renovating and moving in February, so things have been HECTIC and B) I started my new job, which added another level of excitement and busy to my life this month. As a result, I’ve been slacking in the blogging department again and I’m afraid this’ll still last into February and maybe even March. I’ll be around as much as I can, but please be patient with me and know posts and comments may be very sporadic for a while longer.

For now  though, here’s my January wrap up!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

A new year is here, which means… new book releases!! There are so many to be excited for, though for me one definitely stands out from all the rest. I’ll give you a few hints: Privateer, Fox, Royalty and Sass. Ring any bells? 🙂 (It’s King of Scars, cause Nikolai Lantsov is the best…)

But luckily, that’s not the only book to be excited about this year! Here are my most anticipated releases for the first half of 2019:

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Let’s be real for a minute: winter is not my favorite time of the year. In fact, I’m one of those people who wish they could just hole up inside of the house for the duration of winter. Or go somewhere sunnier. Anything to escape winter, which has everything I strongly dislike: freezing temperatures that leave me in a perpetual state of chill and feeling like I’ll never ever feel warm again (#dramaqueen), having to get up even earlier to scrape the ice of my car (ugh), too many layers of clothes that I have never been able to combine in a flattering way (need fashion advice on winter survival, stat), having to face my fears of driving in the snow (nightmare), constantly chapped lips and dry hands and endlessly dark days with no sunshine to boost my morale…

Nope, I’m not a fan of winter. Thankfully, there is one bright side to winter and that is the joy of being able to curl up on the sofa, snuggled under a nice warm blanket, cup of hot cocoa nearby and a great book in your hands. Plus, some of my most anticipated books ever are being released this winter, so in a way, I’m also weirdly looking forward to it…

Without further ado, I present to you the books that I’m hoping to be the beautiful highlights of the next few wintery months…

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about those books on our wishlist that we want so badly but are still so very far away.  Those books that we’d do anything for to be able to read them today, right now, pretty please. Yet, they are so far away, there’s not even covers or titles for some of these.

These are the books I want so badly that I might consider selling my soul for. Or probably something less drastic like give up the internet (say what?) or stop eating sugar (say what again?).
