Happy New Year bookworms!
Yet again my weekly wrap-up is posting a day late and going live on a Monday instead of Sunday. We had a nasty virus hit our house at Christmas and it has been slowly moving through each member of my family. Guess it was my turn to join in the fun. I’m ready for this evil to leave my house so I can get back to living my life lol

What have I been reading?
Recently finished reading:
I didn’t finish any books this past week 😦 Between taking care of my sick kids and then going down for the count myself, I haven’t really been able to get much reading time in.
» Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Don’t throw rocks at me for saying this, but I wasn’t in love with this book in the beginning. Sure, I am enjoying it, but I wasn’t sure it was going to live up to all the hype for me. ((Please no tomatoes either)) Now that the crew is inside of the prison, things have really started to pick up for me. I shall see how this all pans out 🙂 I should finish it by tonight or tomorrow.
» 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad
This book has just been ok for me thus far. There are parts I really enjoy and can relate to, but there are other parts that I am not feeling.
» A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
I’m really going to try and squeeze this one in this week before I start my January TBR list. Wish me luck!
