Monthly Wrap-Up: January ’15


This is my first monthly wrap-up post where I will attempt to summarize my reading and blogging activity each month. Please bear with me as I work out how exactly I want to go about these posts. This month I had the pleasure of reading seven books including two rereads.

My Favorite Book This Month:

If you haven’t already picked up Robin LaFever’s His Fair Assassin trilogy, I can’t express to you enough how amazing this series is. Mortal Heart, the third and final installment in the series, was such a treat. You can read my review here.

My Least Favorite Read of the Month:

Seeker by Arwyn was my least favorite book in January. Unfortunately, this book left a lot to be desired and I am seeing a pretty consistent consensus from other reviewers. You can read my review here.

The Re-Read Challenge:

I reread Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and To Kill a Mockingbird this month and you can read my thoughts on them here.

Kernels of Nonsense:

As many of you know I’ve started writing different discussion posts twice a month on topics pertinent to the bookworm/book blogger. My post Kernels of Nonsense, #16: Movie Adaptations discusses my trepidation when it comes to movie adaptations and in Kernels of Nonsense, #17: The Contentious Relationship, I discuss my admiration for this particular romantic trope in literature.

I wasn’t so sure I had a productive month, but after doing this post I feel like I accomplished more than I actually did. Yay, I’m totally going to pretend! How was your month of blogging and reading?

  1. I can’t say much about my month in blogging because I’ve only started the blogging adventure this month. As for reading, I had a really great beginning of the year. I started 2014 with a book I didn’t not enjoy, but 2015 had a great start, so I’m happy. Have a nice day 🙂

    1. Well, you are gaining a new follower today. Welcome to the book blogging community where we talk books in enthusiastic tones. If you take a look at my sidebar, it took me a few months to really get into the swing of things blogging-wise. I’m glad to hear your year is starting out well. I hope you have a lovely day as well.
