January’s Round Up


Firstly I would like to welcome all my new followers and a big thank you to everyone for your continuous support. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful month.

Secondly, I would like to apologise to everyone that I follow. This month has been a very busy month but I’ve had so much fun. I spent this month visiting family and friends and doing some travelling around India. Unfortunately being away has meant that I was unable to keep up with everyone’s posts, and comments but I’m working my way through all the posts and comments and hope to have caught up on everything in a week or so.

But on a positive while away I managed to finish 9 books (3 eARCs & 6 audiobooks). Also this month I posted 13 reviews. (Four of these reviews were from books that I had finished at the end of December 2018).  

Below is a round-up of all the posts that I have posted this month along with all the ratings I gave for the books I have read, along with my personal favourites.
