  • BEST ADULT: It has to be Stiff by Mary Roach. This book was funny and informative!
  • BEST YA: It was a tough decision, but I think Together We Caught Fire by Eva V. Gibson is the winner. I read most of this book in one sitting because I had to know how everything would end.
  • BEST MG: In December it was Small Spaces, and in January it’s Dead Voices, both by Katherine Arden. I love this series.

2020’s reading challenges are off to a great start!

Monthly Motif is a reading challenge hosted by girlxoxo.

January’s theme was winter wonderland, or, more specifically, “a book set in a truly wonderful place – somewhere you’ve always thought was beautiful, somewhere with a wonderfully rich culture, a snowy setting, or maybe even a magical realm.” I think a lot of books I read could qualify for this, but the first one I used toward the prompt was:

I finished a total of 16 books in January, putting me off to a great start!

What’s in a Name is hosted by Andrea @ Carolina Book Nook.

I crossed off three of the six prompts in January:

The Audiobook Challenge is hosted by Hot Listens & Caffeinated Reviewer.

I set a goal of listening to 50 audiobooks in 2020, and I listened to 14 in January. If I can keep listening at this rate, I’ll have no problem completing this challenge!

(The 🎧 on my page count shows all my audiobook listens.)

How did January go for you? Are you doing any reading challenges? Let’s talk in the comments!

    I just cannot wait to read your review for Handbook for Mortals. I feel it’s wrong of me but I genuinely want to try reading it myself to vent. I feel like I’ve said that before. Oh dear, I’m going to end up doing it aren’t I?!

    Glad to see that you enjoyed Coraline as well. Have you seen the movie? I actually think the movie is better than the book.

      Please read it and complain along with me! We’re almost done with the buddy read (we got sidetracked a bit from traveling and sickness) and it’s just… such an experience.

      And yes! I saw the movie years ago and loved it. I think having seen the movie made me enjoy the book more since I could picture everything that was happening.

        Not at all, I have my own list! πŸ™‚

        We have about 70 pages left and I can’t wait to write my review. I have many, many pages flagged and many things to say. Every time I think Lani can’t surprise me again, she goes and does something else with the book.
