February Read Roundup

I managed to blackout on my Romance Bingo and had a great time finding books to match the squares. I survived the flu and went on a reading frenzy after to make up for the week I couldn't read. As my series headway month, I was able to finish up two series and make headway in others. Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***. March I continue trying to make headway in series and hopefully I'll be able to finish some more off. This month decimated my book fund, so many books came out this month! I won't be able to buy for a while but with a loaded up Kindle, it shouldn't be too painful.

How many books did you all get to read this month, any favorites?

January Roundup

January was such a busy month for me, it always feels like the end and beginning of year goes so fast. I'm going to change up my usual format for this and instead of listing my reads by ARCs, Inspired Some Thoughts, and Just Rated, I'm going to list them under how I rated them (number of stars out of five). January was my Kindle Freebie month and I'll denote those reads with ***book cover***. I was impressed with my Freebie selections and there were no outright DNFs because of grammar or formatting.
February is my Series Headway month where I revisit series I've read some books in and attempt to finish them off. Hopefully, I can wrap up one or two. This is always a good test for my memory, too :)

2016 Book Roundup

The following is a list of all of the books I read in 2016. It's double what I read last year but that makes sense as I doubled the amount of weekly posts I was doing. Also, you'll notice that some of these have no reviews. That is either because I decided not to review it (yet or maybe ever) or it's to be posted in the coming weeks. Once again, I didn't include rereads but if I had then you would see the entire Harry Potter series listed here. ;-) I mention this because in the future when I look back at this I can remember this was the year that I read all of those magical books and fell in love all over again.

Last year I took an inordinate amount of time including all of the review links in my roundup. I debated on whether or not I should do it again this year. I ultimately decided not to as you guys can simply utilize the search feature by using the titles to find the reviews (that's why I include such detailed tags after all). If nothing else, you can explore that feature by using other search terms to find your next read. :-)


**If you're interested in buying any of these books or any books really, you can click here or here. The first will re-direct you to AbeBooks and the second will re-direct you to The Book Depository. These are great websites for purchasing books. Full disclosure: I will receive a commission on all sales made by following either of these links. I wouldn't recommend a site that I didn't use and you are under no obligation to purchase anything. :-) **
