Wrap Up | January 2019

Thanks to January’s late-a-thon, 2019 is off to a pretty good start. Although I’ve been horrifically busy with my PhD application and starting a new job I was able to get a fair few overdue ARCs finished up as well as (finally) posting to a reasonably consistent level. Thank you to all of you who have been cheering me along my PhD application journey and leaving such ace comments on my posts this month 💚

January TBR | #Late-a-thon edition

January TBR | #Late-a-thon edition

Hello, new year friendos!

I have honestly been so looking forward to my January TBR for the past few weeks because it meant that the late-a-thon would finally be here to rescue me from my overdue ARCs. Destiny knows what we all need to get our 2019 off to the right start.

I’ve been incredibly fortunate to receive some excellent ARCs throughout 2018 and I have been feeling super guilty about how long some of them have been waiting for me to read and review them. I’m hoping that the late-a-thon will serve its purpose of helping me catch up on those pesky overdue ARCs, meaning that I can finally review them (sorry authors and publishers!) and move onto my more recent ARCs.
