Top 4* Books I Read This Winter

At the end of every season throughout the year, I will write about my five favorite reads of the last three months. This will be a check in and foundation for my best-of-2019 list.

This feature will take into consideration the books I read from January 1 to the date this blog post is published. That is 20 books in total. These four titles will not be in any particular order. 

*11 out of the 20 books I’ve read so far in 2019 have been books in a series. Due to this fact, each series will only end up on the list once. Due to limited variety, I was only able to choose a top 4 for this season.

Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Songs

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt was ‘Standalone books that need a sequel.’ However, I don’t read many standalone books so I thought I would change it up this week. We are going with a topic that isn’t book-related this week!


This week, I am going to list some of my favorite songs. They will not be listed in order of favorite because that is TOO much pressure for me to choose. All of these songs are amazing!

Therapy Session – NF

Details in the Fabric – Jason Mraz ft. James Morrison

Play Crack the Sky – Brand New

Three Cheers for Five Years – Mayday Parade

Nothing – The Script

Why Don’t You Get a Job – The Offspring

i hate you, i love you – Gnash ft. Olivia O’Brien

I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing – Aerosmith

Heads/tails – Hotspur 

Words – Skylar Grey

My Favorite Book Subscription Box

What is Book of the Month?

Book of the Month is a monthly subscription box for readers of all genres. At the beginning of every month, you get to choose 1 book from a selection of five highly anticipated new releases. You can then choose to add up to two additional books from a variety of choices. These two additional choices can be made from a selection of past or current month’s selections as well as a list of featured books.

How Much Does it Cost?

At the end of every month, you are charged $14.99 for 1 credit for the upcoming month. This is the credit you use on 1 of the month’s book selections. If you choose to add more books to your box, each costs an additional $9.99. Those additional charges incur when you place your order. Shipping is always free!

February Wrap-Up

As I have already mentioned most of these titles, I am going to give you my biggest like and dislike about each one.

Shadow and Bone – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Like: I love the Grishaverse. I mean, who doesn’t? I enjoyed learning more about Grisha and the way they work, interact, etc.

Dislike: As a reread, I felt like this fell more flat than I remember it the first time.

Siege and Storm – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Like: I am glad that the story picks up more than the first book. And then everyone’s favorite character, Nikolai. Did you know that he was initially meant to die at the end of Siege and Storm?

Dislike: The romance between Mal and Alina. They are just an infuriating young couple.

2019 Reading Goals

 

Read 75 Books

  • I have currently read 14 books this year. According to Goodreads, I am 4 books ahead of schedule. 
  • Avoid long reading slumps. Those are never fun. 
  • I was only able to read 34 books last year.
  • Make sure as I try to achieve this goal, reading is still enjoyable and does not feel more like a requirement. 

 

Post Consistently

  • Try to post every 2 or 3 days consistently.
  • Post quality content. 
  • As this is a newer blog, be responsible about posting book reviews in order to have deeper discussions about books I like/dislike. 
  • Make sure to tweet out new posts to increase potential audience.
