Hello, fellow readers! I made a goal to not only catch up on my BOTM backlist but to read my monthly pick sooner, preferably the month I pick it. I was successful in January because I chose The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James, which was one of my most anticipated books of 2020. Everyone was talking about this book, so I picked it up the last week of January and was immediately hooked.

Hello, fellow readers! In the spirit of the Valentine’s Day season, I thought I would share some of my favorite romance books. I don’t read much romance, but usually when I do pick one up, it ends up being a good one!

Hello, fellow readers! I fell in love with The Cruel Prince two years ago and devoured the entire series. This series is far from perfect and I can only describe it as a fae soap opera that you keep tuning in to because you want to see what ridiculous thing will happen next.
Spoilers ahead because it was kind of unavoidable, plus I needed to get all my thoughts out there for discussion!

Hello, fellow readers! January was a decent reading month for me! I finished four books in January and started two books during the last week of the month. I didn’t finish those two in January, but I still think it was a successful month of reading. I am using the same wrap up format from last year, but I may decide to change it as the year progresses!

Hello, fellow readers! I finally won a book from a Goodreads giveaway last year, and it was an ARC of Perfect Little Children by Sophie Hannah. I honestly didn’t think anyone ever actually won Goodreads giveaways because I have had terrible luck with them for the past couple of years!

Hello, fellow readers! Today I am discussing 20 backlist books I want to read in 2020. A backlist title is a book that was released in a previous year. There are certainly more than these 20 books on my backlist TBR, but these are the 20 books I am hoping to get to this year. The books are in order of when I added them to my Goodreads TBR list.

Hello, fellow readers! Part of my 2020 reading goals is to stay on top on my ARCs. I am about a week late reviewing this title, but I am pleased that I still read it in the month of release! Another 2020 reading goal is to read more “big books.” The God Game has about 450 pages, which I am counting as a big book. I don’t usually read books with more than 300-350 pages!

Hi and welcome! This is the first post in my new blog section, Watch With Allison. Although I love to read, I also love a good Netflix binge, so I wanted to incorporate that in my blog somehow.
