Hey Book Lovers!
It’s officially the end of the month which means Wrap Up Time!
I’m not sure how I feel about January being over, the month seemed both to drag and go so fast at times. In terms of how I thought January went, I think the month went great for me. I had some bad moments with my anxiety but overall right now I feel happier.
I’m getting so much better on not pressuring myself in my university work, blogging and reading and I hope it continues.
Here’s what the month held for me…

I read 6 books this month?! Which I think is really good considering two of which were over 500 pages and I had my reading for university alongside these. I’m so happy that I’m starting to tick off books of my TBR of books I own. 4 of these were off that list. Dear Martin and Batman Nightwalker were both new releases.
This post was so timely for me, I promised myself that for 2018 I wouldn’t pressurize myself to read the popular books. This was a great reminder to read whatever I wished without worrying about other people’s thoughts, statistics etc.
Marie’s post on her Book Blogging essentials is great for both beginner and those who have been here a while. I liked reading how our styles differ in essentials and what other tips I could pick up to help me out with my blogging.
This was such an interesting discussion from Kelly and one I haven’t seen discussed before on a blog. It prompted me to realize that for me, names are important. If I struggle to say a name then it can make me lose interest in a book because I get so annoyed not knowing the name.
I never usually include a music section in my wrap ups but this month I have felt so inspired by the music I have been listening to.
I have yet to see The Greatest Showman Movie but I was listening to some of the music online and THIS SOUNDTRACK IS PHENOMENAL!
It’s so good, so catchy and the music really lifts me up. It makes me feel like I’m going to have a great day.
Some of my favourites are; This Is Me | Rewrite the stars | The Greatest Show
I have also been listening to the Pixl Radio on Youtube | Pixl do so many great remixes but they also do a 24/7 radio which is just pure music. I have come across so many amazing songs from this. It is mainly a Pop and Dance Music station.
So there we have it. How many books did you read this month? What were some of your favourites?
