Monthly Wrap-Up ~ January 2015

January 2015 Monthly Wrap-Up

* I will no longer be adding a TBR section to this post. I realized I wasn’t paying much attention to it and not even looking at it after posting. From here on, this post will focus on simply wrapping up the previous month. There will be a section for books read, challenge updates, and resolutions/goals updates.  January was a pretty good month for me and here’s to an even better February.

Books read in January:

  1. Innocent In Las Vegas – A.R. Winters – 4 Stars – Review
  2. Reason To Breathe – Rebecca Donovan – 5 Stars
  3. Weep No More, My Lady – Mary Higgins Clark – 4 Stars – Review
  4. Shame On You – Tara Sivec – 4 Stars
  5. Dead Weight – T.R. Ragan – 4 Stars
  6. Bridges Burned – Chris Cannon – 4 Stars – Review
  7. Water So Deep – Nichole Giles – 5 Stars – (Review will be posted in February)
  8. A Dark Mind – T.R. Ragan – 5 Stars
  9. Obsessed – T.R. Ragan – 5 Stars
  10. Almost Dead – T.R. Ragan – 4 Stars

– Started off this year pretty well, even with the mini reading slump/book hangover I’ve been dealing with for the past week.

Other Reviews from January:

*These books were read in December

  • Twisted Fate by Norah Olson  – 2 Stars –  Review
  • The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun Hutchinson – 5 Stars – Review

Challenge Updates:

What’s In A Name:

TBR Pile Challenge:

– I’ve also read and reviewed one book for this challenge and that was Weep No More, My Lady. Click here for my updated challenge post.

Read Your Freebies Challenge:

– I have not read any of my freebies yet.

Audiobook Challenge:

– I have listened to 3 books from this challenge but have not posted the reviews yet.

Netgalley and Edelweiss Challenge:

– I have read 2 books for this challenge and those reviews will be posted in February.


Resolutions/Goals Updates:

* To see my goals and resolutions post click here. Some of the resolutions/goals were updated earlier in the post so they won’t all be listed here.


– I have read 10/110 books


– I posted 5 review in January. That is a definite improvement over the last few months of last year. It could still be better, but I’m happy with my progress so far.

Discussion posts:

– Haven’t made any progress with this one, but the year is early.


– I feel like so far I’m stating pretty consistent with this one, but I definitely could be doing better.


– I have already missed a couple for this year, so negative on this one so far.


– I have not finished any series yet, but I am now up to date on one of my series.


– Have not read any yet this year, but that will change at some point.

Operation No Soda:

– I have officially gone 31 days without drinking soda. I wasn’t planning to completely stop right away, but it’s worked so far. There have been days where I’ve really wanted soda, but so far I have not given in to any of the cravings.


January certainly went by fast, but overall it was a good month all around for me. I hope you all had a good January and I hope February is good to you.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Reading!
