Amanda Reads – January 2018

What a month! Between reading challenges and the Cybils and finally hearing that I got my dream job (!!), January 2018 was one for the books. And the reading I got done! Oh man, I did some good reading. Let’s recap, shall we?

A note, before I remind y’all of the rating system – I can’t talk about the books that I read for the Cybils yet, and two of them are in this recap. So what I’m going to do is say a one sentence summary of what those books are about, and that’s it! I’ll be writing full reviews eventually, but it’s not going to happen until summer, at the earliest. Huzzah!

A reminder of my super classy rating system (puppies!):

Amanda Reads – December 2017

December went a lot better when it came to reading! I finished ten books and three graphic novels, and I’m all set for the reading marathon that January is bringing (because I’m a second round Cybils judge, as I talked about last fall). So let’s get down to business (no Huns necessary here).

Here’s a reminder of the rating system (puppies!):

Amanda Reads – November 2017

November started pretty slow, but I was able to stay pretty steady with my reading once I got going. I didn’t love everything, but I read some really good books too. So without further ado, here’s my reading roundup from November.

Amanda Reads – October 2017

October was a long, discouraging month for me when it came to reading. I felt like I either hated or loved what I was reading the whole month, and it ping ponged back and forth. And it annoyed me. I like loving books—it brings me joy to read words that I love. So anyway, this has been a frustrating month. But now I get to look at dogs for a bit.

Amanda Reads – September 2017

It’s time for my monthly reading roundup! The month went by super fast, and I read a bunch of romances, because WHY NOT? Haha. It was a good time. So sorry for the heavy dose of romance in this recap – I read them when I’m stressed. And if you know anything about how Day Job is going, you’d understand my need for ~*rOmAnCe*~.
