January Wrap-up

I am so excited to do my first every wrap-up! I read and listened to a grand total of 6 books, and they were BIG books for the most part. I got a lot of reading done because
1. at the start of the month I did a lot of traveling and cleaning so I had plenty of time to listen to audio books.
2. I got the stomach flu and that lead to some reading and a lot of listening to audio books.
3. WE GOT A LOT OF SNOW DAYS!!!!!!!! We had about a week of for snow and boy did I read!
These are the books I read for the month of January. Starting from the bottom  Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (AUDIO BOOK)   5 Stars Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 5 StarsHarry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (AUDIO BOOK)  5 Stars

Challenges for 2016
1. I want to read at least 55 books. In 2015 I read 50 books, and I want to challenge myself to read more this year.  2. I want to read different genres. I normally read YA science fiction and paranormal. I would like to read more fantasy. I would also like to branch out to new adult and adult. I also plan on trying to read more nonfiction.  3. I need to write more reviews. I have really slacked on reviews in 2015. I challenge myself to write a review AS SOON as I finish a book. I am going to try to not start a new book until I write a review for the book I finished.  4. I want to do more original posts on here. I have some great ideas that I have written down, and I just need to push myself to actually write them.  5. I want to challenge myself to get into contact with authors for interviews. 

To help you with your reading goals and challenges I want to do a giveaway. The giveaway will be for a Barnes and Noble gift card for $20.00
Here are the rules:  This giveaway…

Drama, action, love, suspense, everything. THIS IS THE BEST DEBUT BOOK OF THE YEAR FOR ME.  Crimson Bound Here is the thing about this book, I did not like the first book in t…
