Read and TBR for January and February

I didn’t get around to posting a January forecast of books to be read as I wanted to figure out a new format for these posts and I was trying to catch up on reviews of books I’d read in 2018. I think I still have two to post! Crazy. First month of the year down… even crazier! How? Wasn’t it just Christmas? How has your 2019 been shaping up? Mine has been quite busy but, I think, also productive. Just have to get committed to my blogging and blog-hopping schedule and all should be swell.

So what did I read in January? A fair bit… 9 books in total. Including one stunning 500 page novel that practically lit my nerve endings on fire… review soon to come! I have to say I really enjoyed my January reads. My lowest rating was 3.5 and I read my first 5 for the year as well. I even got most of the reviews written, even if not posted as yet.

Here’s what I read:

It was quite a mix-up of genres. I finished the Christmas reads with Snowday. I got in some historical fiction with The Earl’s Irresistible Challenge and Ancient Souls. The Cozies were well represented by Pruning the Dead, A Skeleton in the Family and Erin’s newest addition, Eclairs, Scares and Haunted Home Repairs (reviews soon to be posted for those second two). I had a sci-fi mystery in LV48 and I also got in some contemporary reads in A Nanny for Harry (Woman’s Work) and An Exaltation of Larks.

And what will February hold for this reader? I’m only putting about 4 books on the list for sure. I have an author request, a book I was supposed to read in Dec (but got too carried away with the Christmas reads), a blog tour review and a blogosphere favourite I’ve been meaning to try for ages. Once I get through those, I may try to catch up on some cozy series that I’ve fallen behind in, or perhaps tackle that ridiculous backlist! Who knows. Plus I think I may have a beta read to fit in as well!

The Invited by Janet Crewe
