January 2019 Wrap-up

Welcome to my monthly wrap-up post, where I share all the books I’ve read this month! January was a great reading month for me, and I’m so happy I got to kick off 2019 with so many amazing books. I’m hoping to read a total of 150 books this year, and so far, I’m making good progress! In January, I read a total of 18 books. Here’s what I read:

YA will always be my true love and I’m so glad I got to read so many amazing ones this month! My favorites were definitely On the Come Up, Internment, and Black Enough but I also really loved The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried (Shaun’s one of my favorite authors and his books never disappoint me!). Mirage pleasantly surprised me as a non-fantasy reader, and I can’t wait for the next one in the series. The Birds, the Bees, and You and Me was also a really enjoyable book that I know I’ll be recommending to teens a lot!





I may have only read two MG books, but I adored both of them! The House That Lou Built was a touching, heartfelt own-voices novel about a Filipino girl. I’m always looking for more Filipino rep in kidlit and absolutely loved this one. To Night Owl From Dogfish is also a super fun read that I literally laughed out loud reading. I’m lucky to be part of the blog tour for this sweet, diverse MG novel, so stay tuned for more about it!





I got to read so many fun graphic novels & comic collections in January! I currently have about 15+ graphic novels and comic books checked out from my library, and one of my February goals is to finally read and return all of them (some have been overdue for months!).

Here’s how I read my books in January:

  • 3 eBooks
  • 3 audiobooks
  • 7 ARCs
  • 5 physical, finished books

All eBooks, audiobooks, and physical finished books were checked out from my public library. We just got Hoopla and I’ve been loving the eBooks and eAudiobooks they offer (in addition to Libby, which I also love)!


What was your favorite book you read in January?
