January 2020 Wrap-Up

One month down in 2020, eleven more to go! To be totally honest with you guys, I had a HORRIBLE reading month. I don’t really know why, but I have fallen into one of the worst slumps ever. I accepted it halfway into the month and if I didn’t feel like reading, I just didn’t. I am hoping that my planned romance-y reads in February will help cure this slump and get me back onto the right track.

I managed to read 2 books this month, which is pretty good for me since I was in a pretty hefty slump. Let’s just get right into the wrap-up and hopefully leave this slump behind.

Hello Girls

Hello Girls – Brittany Cavallaro & Emily Henry ⭐⭐⭐/5

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, #1)

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland (Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland #1) – Lewis Carroll ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

No movies this month sadly 😦

Books That Made Me Laugh

Hey everybody! Today I wanted to make a list of some books that really made me laugh during my entire time reading them. I don’t know, I just feel like a lot of books, especially YA is turning a little darker lately, and there’s just a lot of sad themes. SO, I wanted to put this list out here for books that really made me laugh and were also pretty good in general as well. Let’s get onto the list!


(1) Opposite of Always – Justin A. Reynolds

Opposite of Always

This book was one of my most surprising reads of 2019. Not only was it absolutely amazing, different, and well written.. but it was also super funny! I will definitely be checking out more books by this author in the future.

(2) Little Moments of Love – Catana Chetwynd

Little Moments of Love

So cute and light, but the best part? It was freaking hilarious. Couldn’t put it down, and I actually got an Arc of her second book, which was also funny, but Little Moments of Love definitely still takes the cake.

(3) Josh and Hazel’s Guide To Not Dating – Christina Lauren

Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating

The characters in this book should honestly get their own reality tv show. This needs to be a movie, a tv show, a podcast, a youtube series… IDC! It needs to be turned into something because I laughed my ass off throughout it.

(4) The Unhoneymooners – Christina Lauren

The Unhoneymooners

I feel like Christina Lauren books have great humor in them, and here’s another example of why I say that. I think this was probably one of my favorite books from 2019, and if you’ve read it, I’m pretty sure you understand why.

(5) The Last Black Unicorn – Tiffany Haddish

The Last Black Unicorn

I didn’t exactly like the book as a whole, I gave this a 3 out of 5 stars, BUT, I did laugh quite a bit through this audiobook. If you want to pick this up, I would HIGHLY recommend the audiobook.

(6) Unpregnant – Jenni Hendriks, Ted Caplan

Unpregnant (Unpregnant, #1)

I don’t usually like road trip books, but this was hilarious and just straight up awesome. I thought the humor would be inappropriate for the situation they were in, but it actually worked really well. This will be on Netflix soon I believe, so keep your eye out for this.

(7) Undead Girl Gang – Lily Anderson

Undead Girl Gang

Another one, not intended to be humorous, but oh my god the sarcasm was really enjoyable. The sarcasm, the way the girls acted, the way they told stupid little jokes, it all rounded out really well.

(8) Fumbled (Playbook #2) – Alexa Martin

Fumbled (Playbook, #2)

I didn’t laugh so much at the first book in the series, even though I enjoyed it just as much, but this book was super funny. I thought the relationship was awesome and I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit with this one.

(9) Sheets – Brenna Thummler

Sheets

I laughed at this book simply because the ghost people were so adorable and funny looking, I just couldn’t help it. I don’t think this book meant to be labeled as hilarious, but it was.

January TBR

Happy Saturday everyone! I didn’t know if it would be a little too late to say my monthly TBR this month, but its better than never. So here are some of the books I want to read this chilly month of January.

Legendary – Stephanie Garber

This is one I have been super excited for to read this year. I bought it last year in like October, waited as long as I could, hoping to make it until April to read it to be prepared for Finale in May, but I realized I need to read this book right. now.

In the first book we follow a woman named Scarlett, who goes to an isle to play a game created by the ‘master Legend’. In the first book her sister Tella is kidnapped by the master Legend and the winner of the game must find Tella in order to officially have won. In Legendary we just folloe Tella’s story in the midst of a new game.

I’m super excited for this one, and I’ve already started it and I definitely plan on finishing it sometime this weekend.

Dry – Neal & Jarrod Shusterman

I recieved this book for Christmas and this is another one that I have just been dying to read, it looks so good! If you didn’t know Neal Shusterman is also the author of the really Popular Scythe, which I also plan on reading this year at some point.

Dry is about a drought occuring in California, until it finally reaches the point to where there is no water at all. We follow a girl named Alyssa who’s once lovely quiet neighborhood turns into a warzone of neighbors fighting for water. When her parents dont return on night on the search for water, Alyssa must make a choice for her and her brothers lives in order for them to survive.

I mean, come on. This sounds so intriguing and I am so excited.

Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi

I have been putting off this read for a long time, and I think with the new year, means I finally pick it up. This would be my first Tahereh Mafi read (I know guys, it’s unreal), and honestly I don’t know all that much. All I know is that its about a woman that cant touch anyone, because her touch is fatal. I want to be surprised going into this so, I think thats all I need to know.

The Sun Is Also A Star – Nicola Yoon

Last but not least, The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. I also received this book for Christmas and I have only been waiting to read it due to me wanting the collector’s edition. I love her writing style, I love the feeling her writing gives me, so I knew I wanted the signed special edition with purple edges.

This book is about a girl named Natasha and a boy named Daniel and basically it’s a romantic YA contemporary. Don’t know much else, all I know is it’s kind of insta-lovey, which is a trope I dont really care for but, we will see how it goes.

What is everyone reading this month of January?
