It is both very believable and hard to believe that January is already over. Book-wise I had a fairly decent month in reading as I managed to fit in a good number of novels. Some of them are promising starts to series, which means I hope that they continue to entertain me and I get a chance to continue them.
As this is my first ever Monthly Wrap-Up, it will take me some time to develop a style that suites me. For now, I am following a similar format to my Weekly Wrap-Ups, but I am sure that will change by the time February ends.
This month for blogging has been very fun as I started participating in multiple memes that are both entertaining in themselves, but also help me track my current reading and my endless TBR list. Eventually, I plan to put my reading challenges into posts as I am attempting a few this year. At the moment, they are sitting and being tracked in Excel sheets, but I will eventually put them in posts.

Spell the Month in Books: JANUARY
That is it for January! I was very lucky this month to receive multiple ARCs and RCs (review copies that are given after their released dates), as well as, tons of books free from friends/family so I saved a ton of money while growing my novel collection. Unfortunately, this means that I spent more money in other areas, such as new toys for my dogs and fun kitchen gadgets (who knew a mandolin slicer would be a purchase I would ever make haha).
Bring on February as I have hope that it will continue to be a great reading month!
