January Wrap-Up

Hey everyone! January is almost over and I’ve decided to start doing monthly wrap-ups since they will help me summarise my entire month and also keep a track of everything I did through it!

Oh, and before I say anything- I HAVE 250+ FOLLOWERS ON MY BLOG!!!!!

Thank you so much- to everyone who is here and reads my posts. You al mean a lot to me. Your likes and comments make my entire day. I love you all.


I’m in the last year of high school now! Yay! That does mean a lot of studies and responsibilities but also, I’m the seniormost and can boss others around! I also gave farewell to my seniors earlier this month, which was a lot of fun! Other than that, much hasn’t happened- school just started and I have been really busy with it!

I also made a Bullet Journal for this year! You can go check that out over here.


  • Fangirl: 5 stars || I love this book and the reread surely did not disappoint me. I don’t think I can ever get tired of this book.
  • Kingdom of Ash: 5 stars || Ah, the perfect ending to a wonderful series. I just hate the fact that there will be no more books set in Erilea.
  • Geekerella: 5 stars ||One of the cutest romances I’ve ever read!! I can’t wait for The Princess And The Fangirl
  • Dumplin‘: 3 stars || This one was interesting for the most part but it did also disappoint me in quite a few ways. :/
  • Othello: 3 stars || This wasn’t too great but well, you can’t love every book, right?
  • One Of Us Is Lying: 4 stars || Ahh, I can’t wait for another book by Karen McManus!! I loved this and well, I need more!

Average days per book: 5.16 days 

Total pages: 2833

Favourite Posts of the Month Around the Blogosphere!

Let’s Get Real: Backbiting by Bayance is one of the best posts I have read this month. It talks about something that happens in our daily life and well, it spoke to me in a different way altogether.

Book Photography Tips by Heidi is a very informative post that I found really helpful! I hope it can help you all too.

In the post, The Benefits Of Rereading, Beth talks about something so common for all our readers and expresses it all in a very lovely way!

The Struggle of being a Reader by Sam is a wonderful list filled by GIFs that make you laugh and are, well extremely relatable!

That is all for this month! Hope you liked it. Share how your month was in the comments below.

Peace out cuties ♥

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my post in your recap. I’m glad you enjoyed it enough to feature it. 🙂
    It seems like you had a great month overall. I’m glad you loved Kingdom of Ash, I have that on my list but I need to re-read the whole of the Throne of Glass series before I can pick it up so it may take me a while to get around to it.
    Great recap, and I hope you have a great February too. 🙂 ❤️

      You too! Happy Reading! xx

    1. Hahaha, thanks! It’s hard and I barely scrape by but well, you gotta do what you gotta do. P.S. The secret – stop sleeping.

  3. First off, congrats on 250+ followers! *throws confetti at you* oof last year of school, my last year of secondary school was erm…2 years ago now? Since we finish at 15/16 and either stay onto Sixth Form or go down a different route. Looks like you had a great reading month too! I need to read KoA still but aaaaah I want to reread the other books first because it’s been a while 😉 I hope Feb goes well for you!

    1. Thank you so much!
      Oh, well, in india, what you call ‘6th Form’ is compulsory and to say so, I’m in 6th Form now (not sure how to use these terms tbh)… which is bascially Grade 12. I’ll turn 17 this year and will be 17 when I graduate next year.
      You’re in college now, I premuse… How is that going?
      Hope you had a great month too, and well, rereading does make more sense before picking up KoA… THere’s so much I’d have missed out on if I hadn’t.
      All the best for Feb! Happy Reading! xx


  4. Congratulations on 250+ followers! 😍 Also, yay for Kingdom of Ash and Geekerella! 😍😍 Love them..☺️

      You should! FAngirl is one of my all-time faves. You’re missing out on something if you have not read it!
