January Wrap Up

Hello Everyone!

So, I know I'm totally off my schedule, but unfortunately it is going to remain that way for the foreseeable future as well. I'm totally crazy busy these days that when I have some down time, I don't ever want to spend it sitting in from of the computer! So, I'm sorry, but you won't be hearing much of me for the next 2 months!

I did want to get this wrap up post done though, because I am still trying to be serious about all the challenges I have taken on this year, so here's what I managed to consume during the month of January, versus what I was "supposed" to read.


The Casual VacancyLife of PiShiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)

I haven't actually posted reviews for any of them yet, so I won't be able to link up on the 2013 TBR Reading Challenge, but they are read, so I feel rather accomplished over it. Life of Pi was on my official challenge list for the 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, and Shiver was my January book for the Monthly Key Word Challenge.

Supposed to Have Read

Well, there is only two challenges that go by each month, so those are really the only ones that I can fail this early on. I was supposed to have read Marked for the Paranormal reading challenge, and I'm only about 1/3 of the way through it, but at least I have started it, so I'll consider that a 'pass' anyway, maybe now a 'win', but a pass. Also, I'm about half way through Clash of Kings which is on my list for the 2013 Sequel Challenge as well, so that's pretty good. It's a really long book and it took a bit of a back burned when I realized how few days were left in January and I still had to read both Shiver and Marked.
A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)Marked (House of Night, #1)

February Plans

For February, obviously I want to finish both Marked and Clash of Kings, and I will want to read P.S I love You and Clockwork Prince as they are my February books, but my complete goal are these:
Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)Ps I Love YouCity of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)Water for ElephantsDead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse, #4)
In February I have to fly to Toronto, fly back to St. John's, and fly to Chicago so I will have lots of plane time which = lots of reading time in February, so I think I can handle all these! That way I will have a least one, and in many cases more than one, book crossed of every challenge list! And it's really only 6 books because I'm already half done the first two! Totally manageable :)

Happy Reading everyone!


  1. J.K. Rowling's book is on my to-be-read list too - I'm really looking forward to reading that one. :) Looks like you had quite a hectic month!

    1. It was really good, but definitely different from her prior work! Ugh, I'm not sad January is over! Working 2 jobs and going to school is sooo time consuming!!

  4. PREPARE A BOX OF TISSUES FOR CLOCKWORK PRINCE. AND SOMEONE TO STRANGLE. Don't say nobody warned you!! Btw, did you see my comment about the Leibster award? I see I'm not the only one who nominated you!

  5. I can't wait to read Clockwork Prince!

    Lucy and Esty, thank you so much for the nominations! I did see them, but honestly I have had zero time for blogging and just haven't had time to take a look! I'm so sorry! I really can't even say when I will get a chance! But, thanks again, I really appreciate it, and promise I will pass it along eventually!!
