Which books are worth the read and which should you skip? Find out what books I’ve been reading lately and whether I recommend them.
Welcome to my monthly reading roundup. Each month, I write up short reviews of books I read that month. Find out which books I recommend and which to skip. Plus, take a sneak peek at the February 2020 book releases and what I’m hoping to read next month.
Since I’ve been slacking and haven’t covered my reading list recently, this month I’m showcasing my reads from January and December.
I know the month isn’t exactly over, but let’s take a look at my January reading by the numbers before moving on to my reviews.
- Books Read: 14
- 2020 Releases: 4 (all Advance Review Copies)
- Genre: 9 Nonfiction, 5 Fiction
- Authors: 10 Female Authors, 6 Male (1 Male/Female Team, and 1 Female/Female Team)
- Format: 1 Audiobook, 2 E-books, 11 Print Copies
- Total Page Count: 4,918 pages
If you pay attention, I only highlight 5 of my 14 January reads. The rest fall into three categories. One: advance copies that I won’t review until the months they release. Two: books I read for last week’s post on minimalism books. Three: a random children’s book my son wanted me to read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from G. P. Putnam’s Sons through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

One of the best perks of being a book blogger is receiving advance review copies (ARCs) of upcoming book releases from publishers.
At the beginning of each month, I cover all the new book releases coming out, and the February 2020 book releases are right around the corner. Here’s a peek at the February releases I’ve already read.
My To-Read List
What’s up next for me? Before I let you go, here are a few of the titles I’m hoping to get through this upcoming month.
Be sure to come back in February to see which ones I read.
