January 2017 Wrap Up


Can you believe it is the end of January? This month seemed to fly by; this first month of 2017 was extremely exciting.   I kicked off #cjsreads2017 with Jessica and Chandra, have started putting together a Meet the Blogger series, signed up for some blog tours, have been planning my wedding and I even had time to squeeze in 27 books (I know, I know…I’m slacking!)

Keep reading to check out what I read this month (and which reads I gave a 5 star rating to!)

Books to Enjoy Now:

I love getting advanced review copies but it’s not fun to read only books that are upcoming- then I have no one to discuss them with!  So, as always, I was sure to read a few neglected books that have been on my TBR shelf and get some books from my local library that were previously released!
