January Releases

I wanted to start this new feature on my blog where every month I do a round up up all the books that released the previous month. Often times I get caught up in reviews, posting them two weeks ahead. I forget about the books that released. Sometimes I see reviews I like, but don’t want to pre-order and then still read. And then they’re gone!

So to help us all out, I’m doing round ups of the reviews of books that released in January. Plus I’m boiling down the whole review to a sentence. All you have to do is read the sentence, decide if you want to read the whole thing, and then add it to you TBR. Easy enough right?

(They’re organized chronologically. I will organize them by week and the cover next to the week will be my favorite release that week! I’ll also tell you have many of them were hits – i.e. books I’d recommend).

  1. I have a copy of The Hazel Wood on my TBR pile here. The cover is stunning and it sounds so unique.
