Monthly Recap – January 2015

monthly recap january One of my blogging resolutions for 2015 was to start doing a monthly recap of all my blog posts and life and books in general. I was planning on posting the first one on Saturday, but due to some unexpected stuff happening I didn’t get around to it. So, here it is, finally!

Bought this Month


Back in December I ordered some books from The Book Depository for the first time, since I still had some birthday money to spend. And what better way to spend money than on books? I’ve been wanting to read Anna and the French Kiss and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe for ages, and after deciding to start reading outside of my comfort zone I thought reading Cinder and Throne of Glass would be a good start. The Silkworm doesn’t really need any explanation, I think, since I’ve been whining on about wanting to read that one ever since I read The Cuckoo’s Calling. As for If I Stay; I thought it would be time I read a Gayle Forman novel!

Read this Month

read this month Thanks to Bout of Books, my reading year started out really well! I read five books this month, which is above my average from last year. I finally read We Were Liars, and adored it! Love Hurts was a bit disappointing, but I really loved Invisible MonstersFangirl and The Silkworm.

Reviewed this Month

Baked this Month


Other Posts this Month

And that’s it for this month! I’m thinking about including a section on what I did each month (with pictures from Instagram perhaps) in future recaps, but I’m not sure yet. Would you guys be interested in reading that?

  1. I’m so glad to see a blogger who doesn’t only read the new releases… makes me feel better about my reading/blogging habits! As for We Were Liars… AMAZING! And you will love If I Stay!

    1. I was quite insecure about that when I first started blogging, but I’m just reading what I want to read, and it’s works just fine, I think! 😀 It’s all about having fun, after all. We Were Liars was sooo amazing, indeed! Can’t wait to read If I Stay, but I’m not sure yet when I’ll get around to it.

  2. DOES MY LITTLE EYE SPY THRONE OF GLASS??! WELL DONE! I APPROVE! CAKE ALL ROUND! *flings victory cake* And pfft, the cool kids always do recaps late. 😉

  3. Ooh I bought We Were Liars a while ago when it was on a Kindle deal, but I’ve still not got around to it. It’s promising that you loved it though. I adored Throne of Glass but wasn’t as sure about Cinder (though I know plenty of people who loved it). I hope your outside-your-comfort-zone reads are successful!

    1. I absolutely adored We Were Liars! It’s a very quick read, but so good! I hope you get around to it soon. 🙂 I’m really enjoying Cinder (about half way through at the moment), so the outside-of-my-comfort-zone experience is going well, so far! Thank you! 🙂
