Monthly Wrap-Up: January

What I’ve been reading: 

January has been a great reading month for me! I read 14 (well technically I will finish my 14th tonight) books in all- 2 were audios, 2 were re-reads, and 2 DNFs. My TBR switched up some from my post at the beginning of the month, I felt I had way too much fantasy going on so I switched some out for some contemporaries!

Most of the books I read this month I really enjoyed, and I even obsessed over a few…ahem, TGFE! 




Watch for reviews of all of these coming up this month!

What I’ve been watching: 


Nashville- I started this show on a whim on Hulu after finishing up my watch of Friday Night Lights because I loved Connie Britton so much. Well I’m loving this show just as much as I love FNL! It is seriously SOOOO good!


New Girl- Most of you know I’m a huge fan of this show and S4 finally hit Netflix so I binged that season in 2 days and then five straight into S5 (which is on air now). And OMG I think S4 was AMAZINGGGGGGG! I was bawling like a baby watching the finale. So so good!


Have you read any of these? Or watch these shows?

    I haven’t watched those shows and haven’t read any of those books (except HP) but I really really want to read TGFE. Look like you’re doing great on your reading challenges so far, so kudos for that! I’m looking forward to reading your upcoming reviews/posts so HAPPY READING & HAPPY FEBRUARY! :)
