January Wrap Up

Starting this year I am going to attempt to do monthly wrap ups where I will post what books I read this month, what books I received/brought, updates on reading challenges, review posts and what books I plan to read next month.

Books I read this month

This month I read a total of 8 books which is pretty good considering it is school holidays and I had my two kids at home and we also spent around a week moving rooms around at our house. So the 8 books I read this month were:
-What I saw by Beck Nicholas. I received this book for review from Harlequin Teen Australia.
-The Best Goodbye by Abbi Glines.  I received this for review from Simon and Schuster
-0.4 by Mike Landcaster. I have had this sitting on my book shelf to read for a few years now and finally picked it up to read.
-The Unidentified Redhead by Alice Clayton. I received this for review from Simon and Schuster a few years ago now and finally got around to reading it. Don't know why I put it off so long I absolutely lived it.
-A Corner of White and The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty. I recieved these two books from Pan MacMillan as part of the blog tour coming up in March for the third book.

Update on reading challenges 
I read 8 books towards my reading goal of 60 books.

Books I plan to read next month

This month I have picked out five books to read, four review ones and one for enjoyment. They are:
A tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty- This is the third book in the Colours of Madeline series. I will be apart of the blog tour for the release of this book in March which I am really looking forward to as I have loved this series so far.
The Selection by Kiera Cass -I have wanted to read this one for ages and finally brought it late last year. I am so excited to read it as I have heard such great things about it from so many people.
Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider -I have had this one sitting here for awhile for review and just haven't gotten around to it. I am thinking that it might even be a good fit for one of the reading challenges that I am doing.
The Redhead Revealed by Alice Clayton -I read the first book in this series this past month and loved it so I can't wait to see where Alice Clayton takes us in this one. This book has been sitting on my TBR pile for properly close to two years and I have no idea why because I love Alice's writing.
The November Criminals by Sam Munson - I was lucky to receive this book from Hatchette Australia and it looks really interesting.
