January Books

I had a ridiculously good month with 42 books read for January. I got to 5 of the 12 books from 2017 that I really wanted to read, but hadn't gotten to last year. For new 2018 books I was highly anticipating, I read 2 of the 7 that were out in January. I loved the majority of the books I read with an average score of 3.9 stars.

 

22 of my books were YA. 11 were graphic novels. My most-read genres were fantasy, romance, and contemporary.

 

My favorite books were The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) - Holly Black and Foolish Hearts - Emma Mills. My least favorite was Vanilla - Billy Merrell.
