Loved and Loathed (January 2016)


January 2016

For those who don’t know, Loved and Loathed is my equivalent of a wrap-up and glimpse-ahead.

January proved an AWESOME reading month for me!  I loved way too many books, loathed absolutely none, and discovered some other awesome things in the midst of it all!  That’s… That’s a good thing, right?!

I also started actively seeking out more mid-grade novels to read, because I like breaking up the heavier, more emotional books with quick, moral-tastic ones!  (No, that’s not a real word.  Sue me.)  Feel free to recommend me some mid-grade reads, if you’d like!
