Monthly Wrap Up | Books I Read in January

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!

Review | Perfect Little Children by Sophie Hannah

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!

Discussion | 20 Backlist Books to Read in 2020

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.

Review | The God Game by Danny Tobey

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!

Movie Review | Midsommar (2019)

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. I hope you will enjoy this new section of my blog, as it will expand my posts beyond just book and reading and offer more unique content! My first movie review is a spoiler-free review of Midsommar.

Discussion | Reflecting on The New Year’s Book Tag from 2019

Hello, fellow readers! I was reading a tag I did last January and thought it would be fun to reflect on the prompts and see if I accomplished some of the goals I set for myself in 2019! I have reposted the tag with my original answers and added my reflection for each prompt in italics!

Review | Recursion by Blake Crouch

Hello, fellow readers! I finished my first book of 2020, and it was definitely a memorable one! I am so glad I finally picked up Recursion by Blake Crouch. I picked this as my Book of the Month pick in June 2019, and then I put it to the side, waiting for the “right time” to read.

2019 Wrap Up | The Best Books I Read in 2019

Hello, fellow readers! Today’s post is the last one in my 2019 Wrap Up series. It was really hard to narrow down the best books I read in 2019. All of these books were 5 stars reads, but I had more 5 star reads than this in 2019. I ended up getting my list down to 10 of the best books from 2019. These are the books that stand out the most in my mind when I reflect on my 2019 reading. They are listed in the order I read them because it was too hard to order them!

2019 Wrap Up | The Worst Books I Read in 2019

Hello, fellow readers! Admittedly, this list is going to be short and sweet, but I consider that a good thing! I read a lot of disappointing books in 2019, but there were very few that I just did hated. Some of the books on this list even earned a three star rating from me, but only because I recognize that it was not for me or did not live up to my expectations.
