On the Night Table [31]: January Reads

DSC00585


For the better part of 2015, I have been somewhat successful with sticking to a reading schedule. Admittedly, I also put an added pressure on myself by posting one every week. This year, I decided to do some changes. I’m no longer going to post one every week. Instead, I’ll decide what to read for the entire month ahead of time, prioritizing books I’ve gotten for review regardless of their publication date. I’ve noted the date of publication for each review copy on my organizer so I can better keep track of my priorities.

So here are the books I wanted to read for this month. And if by chance I finish these off halfway through the month, then I can dig out my copies among my neglected piles all over my house.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Published back in September. Most of you have probably read this already, but you know how I’m always fashionably late. Especially if the book is from the fantasy genre.

He Will Be My Ruin by KA Tucker.  For review from Simon & Schuster Canada. This book will be out February 2nd. I adore this author and have had successes from her books in the past. I can’t wait to read this!

The Widow by Fiona Barton. For review from Penguin Random House Canada. A bit of suspense thriller in time for Valentine’s Day. Oh, the horror.

Compulsion by Martina Boone. I started this book back on my Christmas break, so I’m more than halfway through. I’m not gonna lie, the heroine is irritating.

Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine. For review from Simon & Schuster Canada. I can’t seem to find a good stride with this book. Hopefully, I’ll have it read by the time this post goes up.

Read in December

This is the saddest month of reading for me. And can you believe that I was on holidays for the latter part of December? This is what happens when you’re way ahead of your Goodreads Reading Challenge. You stop reading. Five books? So pathetic! In my defence, Winter was so long. But holidays, you know? I should’ve done better. Sigh.

Good luck with your January reads, peeps!
