Wrap-Up: January 2019

Wrap-Up Cover to Cover book blog kat snark reading books reader

hello, lovelies!

It’s crazy that January is almost over!! It’s seemed so short and yet … not so short at all. I’ve had a great month of busy, busy, busyness, and lots of reading. I read 16 books this month, seven of them from new-to-me authors. This is something that I take as a victory of sorts, because out of the 136 books I read in 2018, only 16 of them were by new-to-me authors. And most of them were read in a single month. SO, it’s a personal goal of mine to kick that number up astronomically and discover some amazing new authors out there.

This is my most recent Bookstagram picture ^^ They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera has been on my list for quite some time now, but I tend to procrastinate when I know reading a certain book is going to make me drown in my own tears. I mean, the title says it all!! It’s one of the books on my 2019 bucket list.

Have you read it? What do you think?

  • LUCIFER I’m only two episodes into this, but I’m kinda enjoying it 🙂 The man character is Mmm
  • THE IRON FIST – I’m half-way through the first season of this, and it’s such a contrasting show! It’s super dark, creepy and scary staying with Marvel themes, and while the main character (“The” Iron Fist) is a charmingly boyish character who can also be an intense badass. Idk, I like it… but I’m still getting used to it.
  • CHARMED (original) – This is such fun! I’m in season 4, and I’m very much enjoying it. It’s like combining Full House and Supernatural … ish.
  • AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D – I re-started this on a whim and am only halfway through season 1, and it’s a ride!
  • LAST MAN STANDING – still my favorite show. I love Tim Allen

  1. I read They Both Die at the End this month, and I thought it was pretty decent, but definitely overhyped. It’s not that I hated it by any means, but I think I should have kept my expectations more in check.

  2. Great post!

    I haven’t read The Cruel Prince yet, but everyone seems to be liking that series. Hope to start reading it this year. I not too long ago finished reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Really good! Currently reading Love, Simon.

    I love the TV Show Lucifer. I still have to finish the last half of the last season. So happy Netflix picked it up after FOX cancelled it.

    1. Ah Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a great book!! I haven’t seen Love, Simon, the adaptation version yet. I’m liking Cruel Prince, with all the anti- characters in it. I didn’t know it was cancelled then picked up!! That must mean it gets better 🙂
