Talk Nerdy To Me: Jan’19 Wrap Up - Bubbly Booknerd
Happy Weekend & Welcome to February! After dipping down to -32°F (-35°C) and up to +40°F (4°C) within the past two days, I’m ecstatic that Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow yesterday!! 🌷 Bring on an early spring! 🌷 But first… I need to wrap up January! I’m really happy with how much I accomplished last month, even with a slow reading start during the first week of the year. (A little perspective: I read 1 book in Jan’18 for a YTY comparison, and 3 Short-a-thon books in Dec’18 for a MTM comparison.) Reading Challenges 🌸 Devour Your TBR: January Jam Jar 🌸 Hosted by Kathy @ Books and Munches ⏰ Late-a-thon ⏰ Hosted by Destiny @ Howling Libraries πŸ‰ Dragons & Tea Book Club πŸ‰ Co-Hosted by Melanie @ Mel to the Any and Amy @ A Court of Crowns and Quills ⚑️ Potterhead Readalong ⚑️ Hosted Noura @ The Perks of Being Noura ⏱ Short-a-thon (Catch-up) ⏱ Co-hosted by Destiny @ Howling Libraries and Kathy @ Books and Munches There are half a dozen more challenges I’m considering committing to this year. However, I was a little overwhelmed in January because I basically ignored my TBR until the 11th hour. Therefore, I’m going to keep them in mind and gradually join as I’m ready! (There’s still 11 months left this year and some of the books from January would apply to those challenges I’m thinking of joining.) 9 Books Read in January β˜€οΈ = ARC // πŸ… = Top 12 Must-Read ⏱ Legacy Lost by Anna Banks β˜…β˜…½ The Necromancer by Michael Scott β˜…β˜…β˜…½ ⏱ The Demigod Files by Rick Riordan β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… πŸ… A Duke by Default by Alyssa Cole β˜…β˜…β˜…½ β˜€οΈ Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… πŸŒΈβ°β˜€οΈ PLUS+: Style Inspiration for Everyone by Bethany Rutter β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… πŸŒΈβ°β˜€οΈ Everyday Yoga Meditation by Stephen Sturgess β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… ⚑️ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K.

On the Blog in January I’m extremely excited to close my first official FULL month of book blogging!! Wow, this is fun, hard work! I can’t thank all of you in the bookish community enough for the warm welcome! πŸ’• I was only planning to post a couple times a month up to once a week, so I’m in complete shock by how much my blog has grown, and I look forward to what the rest of the year will bring!
