January 2015 Wrap Up

I think the one (and only) time I've done a wrap up on this blog was in August two years ago. Ouch. I don't know why I didn't continue? I remember it being a lot of fun. So much so that I'm bringing it back! And it's going to be a regular things! 

I know, right! I'm trying to find more ways to be active on this blog, so I'm doing it in small ways (I'll talk more about that in another post). 

So! January. It was actually a good month? I'm honestly surprised. When I went back to school last semester, I was drowning in so much school work I barely read more then three books a month. Which is awful! Because I love reading (duh). But this semester, I'm taking a Young Adult Literature course and we're reading such great books! I'm a little hesitant on the choices but I think they'll be great, I trust my professor.

Now, onto the wrap up!

January 2015 Book Haul

Wow, my first every book haul! I've been blogging for so long (over a year, in fact) and I've never done any book hauls! I'm terrible when it comes to this blog, I know, but I'm trying to improve. (I feel like I say that a lot, don't I?)

As for my spending, I think I did okay. Last year I bought over 100 books, averaging on almost 10 books a month, which was crazy. I didn't realize how crazy I was until I did the math. So when the new year started, I told myself I either a) wouldn't buy more books than the amount of books I've read that month or b) buy one book for every two books I've read. Clearly, I've chosen the first option (because I have no will power).

I bought only a couple of books, four to be exact, which is crazy good for me because I buy a lot! I feel crazy proud of myself! But (I know, not the but!) I bought a crazy amount of ebooks. What can I say! In my defense, they were all $2.99 or under, so I feel like I got a really good deal. God bless amazon and their kindle daily deals.

Top Ten Things I Like/Dislike in Romance Books!

The Top 10 Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where each week you post your top ten best, worst, etc. This week's topic? My top ten things I like and dislike in romance novels!

I love love in books! That's probably why contemporary is my favorite genre. I love when two characters fall in love and the road to getting there! Man oh man I live for that! And then, when I finish the book, I'm overwhelmed with the cuteness and I just hug my book to my chest! But there are also some things I don't like in romances. Lets take a look shall we?
