January Wrap-Up

Posted February 4, 2015 by chooseyabooks in monthly wrap-up, Uncategorized / 0 Comments

I can’t believe it’s February already, once again time just seems to be passing me by so quickly. This year I’m hoping to post monthly wrap-ups and keep to them, I have some short codes and ways that should hopefully make these a lot simpler to write.

Book of the month: I loved Only Ever Yours and found that very haunting and thought-provoking. I also adored The Accident Season and found it beautifully written and haunting.

Reading challenge progress:  I read and reviewed 2 books for the British Books Challenge, plus read another five UKYA books, some of which were review books and I’ll schedule closer to publication/shortly. I read five non review books and three non YA books.
