As it is a new year I decided to change-up my monthly posts. Instead of listing all the posts I’ve written this past month, I decided to forgo that and just focus on what I read and how my life has been over the past month. Below are the books I read in the month of January. They are organized by the rating I gave them and the title of the books link back to my reviews of them. A few of the reviews are scheduled for the next couple of weeks, but I believe the links will still work and you’d get a sneak peek of my review.
This past month was pretty hectic for me because of robotics. My FLL team had their state competition on the 23rd, leading up to that day was super busy and hectic. After that wrapped up I started helping out more with the FTC team I mentor. We had one competition on the 9th and another on the 30th (and our next one is this Saturday, Feb 6th). I ended up making 12 aprons for the team members last week, I was pretty proud of myself as I hadn’t sewn in at least a year.
In the book world, 5 of the 11 books I read are romances (4/5 are historical romances). Out of these five my favorite romance of the month would have to be the novella Forbidden by Lauren Smith. While not a historical romance, it does take place in England and involved sexy Brits, so that’s a plus.
Aside from romances I mostly read graphic novels and I finally finished Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. It was great and the review is linked below, but will also be published on Valentine’s day.
Here are the books I read in the month of January:
The Rake’s Unveiling of Lady Belle by Raven McAllan
A Whisper of Desire by Bronwen Evans
So Cute It Hurts!! Vol 1 by Go Ikeyamada
So Cute It Hurts!! Vol 2 by Go Ikeyamada

Forbidden by Lauren Smith
Level Up by Gene Luen Yang
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This brings my yearly total of books up to 11/100 towards my reading goal, making it 11% complete. (It’s a lot easier this year to calculate the percentage this year!)
