The Monthly Recap: January 2019


Hey guys!

The first month of a new year has come to an end…and I feel very meh about it. I started off the month being all positive and excited about the new year and then all this mess with the government happened and it put me in a sour mood. It also doesn’t help that I had a horrible toothache for like two weeks and I am just now getting back to eating solid foods. I’m just gonna pray that this first month doesn’t determine how the rest of my year will be because yo girl cannot go through a repeat of 2018.

Let’s get started!

I read a total of 10 books this month and DNFed 1 book! I know that’s an unusually low number for me but I guess I just wasn’t in a reading mood this month, lol. Overall, I would say that my reading month was semi-decent—hopefully next month will be better. My favorite reads were Raw: Rebirth and the Welcome to the Point series!

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!
