Monthly wrap up banner

Hello!! Welcome to the first wrap up of the year!

I hope you had a good reading month. I know I did. I feel like January and December are heavy reading months for me because I get so many days off for holidays and I just read during them. So lets break down my reading this month.

Reading Stats:

Books Read: 52

  • New: 37
  • Re-reads: 18  


  • eBooks: 33
  • Audiobooks: 7
  • Comics/Manga: 6
  • Paperback: 0
  • Hardback: 0
  • Bonus Shorts: 6

As usually, almost all eBooks, but I did get some audiobooks and comics read this month.


I read a lot of good books this month. As you can see I had 14 books that were 5 stars reads! Hopefully February will be just as successful reading wise.


  • 10,937 pages

Listening time:

  • 56 hours 52 minutes

Genres and Tropes:

Most of my reading this month was paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I did read 7 nonfiction books, which is a lot for one month but they were in between everything else so I didn’t realize I read so many.

This month I mostly read fated mates, enemies to lovers, and forced proximity romances.

I have added some new categories to my sources this year to break it down more. As you can see the majority of what I read this month was purchased eBooks but I did use my library. I actually saved $114 with my library this month.

Most Read Author:

As you can see, my most read author this month was Ilona Andrews. I reread two of her series and finished the last book of the Kinsmen series. I love their work and figured I would start the year out with my favorite author, which turned out to be a great idea.
