January 2018 Monthly Wrap Up

So I think this is the last new graphic for a while.  I've pretty much changed them all but hey, I figured it was time with a new year and all.  The Top Ten Tuesday and Can't Wait Wednesday graphics will stay the same because who can mess with the perfection that is Booker T and Cassius?

I started January off pretty strong and ended up reading 11 items.  At least for now, Goodreads hasn't started mocking me yet.  I added a Widget so I can track my challenge progress so I sort of just want to give an overview from now on.  Here's an overview of what was read:

Two Girls Down: Louisa Luna 5/5
The Prey of Gods: Nicky Draden 5/5
Beneath the Sugar Sky: Seanan McGuire 3/5
A Treacherous Curse: Deanna Raybourn 5/5
The Chalk Man: C.J. Tudor 3/5
The October Faction Vol. 4: Steve Niles 3/5
Blood Sisters: Jane Corry 4/5
Ricochet Joe: Dean Koontz:4/5
Into the Black Nowhere: Meg Gardiner 5/5
Chew Major League Vol. 5: John Layman 3/5
Space Dumplins: Craig Thompson 4/5

I'd say my favorite read was A Treacherous Curse and my least favorite has to be The Chalk Man.  I still need to get reviews posted for The Prey of Gods and Into the Black Nowhere but you can see I loved them too. 

What book was your favorite read this month?  Did you read any of these?


  1. I like these new graphics you're using but of course you have to keep Booker T and Cass! I think my favourite reads so far are the PA Glaspy apocalypse books, Sonya Bateman's djinn sequel and A Dance With Dragons. I haven't read any from your list but I still plan to look at The Chalk Man.

  2. Looks like you had a great reading month! Nothing less than 3 stars! I had a couple DNFs.

  3. I love the graphic! I’m glad you had a successful reading month, and I hope you have an awesome February.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. You are on the ball! I just started thinking about maybe thinking about a wrap-up post for January ;) I love your new graphics!

  5. Dang! 11 books is a GREAT way to start your year of reading! I managed nine and that will probably the most I read in one month lol. I have a bunch of the books that you read on my TBR list though. I especially want to read Two Girls Down as I have heard so many good things. I hope that February is just as great of a month for you!

  6. Love the new graphic and you did really good this month. :) I think my favorite was A Treacherous Curse as well. :)

  7. Nice wrap up!! I personally really loved The Chalk Man: C.J. Tudor! :) It will definitely be in the running for my favorite books of 2018 :)

  8. Wow! 11 books! That's pretty impressive! I hope you have a wonderful February!

    Here’s my Monthly Wrap Up!

  9. That's an amazing month. You didn't have a single book below 3 stars. :) My favorite read was Caroline Kepnes's You.

  10. Four 5 star books. That sounds like a great reading month to me. :D

  11. Speaking of widgets, you still have the 2017 one in your sidebar :)
    11 books is awesome! I read 13, but actually forgot the two (I know right!!) before I was doing my wrapups, so I also thought it was 11. How do you forget books xD

  12. Four 5 star books to start off the year! That is amazing! My favorite read of the month was We're going to need more wine by Gabrielle Union. I hope February treats you even better.
