A Very Magical Reading Month | January TBR

Happy New Year bookworms! 

It’s 2016. Woah. Can we just take a moment to sit and acknowledge that we have just stepped into the dawn of a new year? It felt like only moments ago that it was 2015. Flip. 
Ah, but I digress. With a new year, comes a new month, which means it’s about time that I share with you the books I plan to read in the month of January – and what a great and exciting set of books there are indeed! So shall we get started right away? Yes, I think so!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling


I am taking action immediately and vowing that 2016 be the year that I finally discover the Harry Potter series. Because, guess what? I have never read the Harry Potter books. I’ve watched the first three/four movies, but that’s about it. Plus, every time you guys make a Harry Potter reference, I feel extremely left out. BUT NOT FOR LONG! Mwahaha! (Why I did an evil laugh, we will never know)

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell 


After reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, I have been dying to read more about Simon and Baz! And my wishes came true when, my best friend gifted Carry On to me for Christmas! Eek! I am so excited for this. I will be reading this book in between my binge read of the Harry Potter series, so I don’t tire myself out too much. (Pretty smart, huh?)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling 


Ah… Can we take one moment to speculate over the cover for this second book? Is that a sword strapped to Harry’s hip? And why in the world is he holding onto a bird? Okay, enough of that, I’m sure you bookworms can tell me what’s up with that, right?

I am hoping to get through at least the first two books this month. Because of other business happening with my reading in the later half of January, I know that trying to get through half of the series this month would be way too over ambitious for me. But if I can get through this, I will be thoroughly satisfied. 

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin


I am really hoping I can get to this novel this month. I am very unsure what with my second half of this month being busy with certain reading business that I cannot discuss at the moment, BUT ever since my friend gave this to me for Christmas (you know who you are, and THANK YOU AGAIN), I have been so excited to read it. My eyes always seem to find their way to this book when I pass by my bookshelf. 

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes


Another of my resolutions this year in terms of reading, was to read the entire Falling Kingdoms series. Jesse @ Books At Dawn would be over-the-moon happy to know that I am definitely planning to read this in the month of January! 

Fun fact: I actually spent $100 this week on the entire Falling Kingdoms series after a huge burst of excitement – once again, for something I cannot tell you yet – and I do not regret it on bit… #bookwormpriorites (who cares about the necessities of life when you can have books, right?)

Keep your eyes open around the halfway mark of this year for more news to do with this book… Trust me, you’ll want to know! 

And there we have it! My January TBR is done and dusted. I am so excited to read all these books this month. And since I am now temporarily jobless for the month of January, I have all the time in the world to read – or so, I hope! 

What do YOU plan to read in the month of January? How will you start off your 2016?

  1. Ooh I cannot wait to hear what the exciting news is! I hope I can get to Falling Kingdoms sometime this year. I feel like a certain person is disappointed with my lack of Falling Kingdoms reading in 2015 haha. I bought Wolf by Wolf for myself in December and I’m hoping to read it either this month or in February! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. And Carry On was one of my favourite books of 2015! ENJOY!

  2. When I re-read Harry Potter few years ago, I read the whole series in a month! I hope you love them! I’d give a lot to go back an experience them for the first time. I also really want to get to the rest of the Falling Kingdom series soon. Enjoy your first month of reading for the year 🙂

  3. Enjoy all the Harry Potter reads going on there! I really need to finish the series (whoops), and I hope you do this year! (I hope I do too LOL)
    But enjoy Carry On, omg, that book is literally *gushes*. I love Simon and Baz and their relationship and everything going on. ❤ Can't wait for you to read it!

  4. I also really want to read Wolf By Wolf… It sounds awesome since I studied Germany and Hitler in my history course last year! Great TBR for January Josie!

  5. I’m so happy you’re finally reading HArry Potter 😀 😀 :D. Also, CARRY ONNNNN!!!! I’m reading right now, and I’m not entirely sure you should be reading it in between the Harry Potter binge reading, just because Carry On draws some stuff from HP and I’m not sure if you won’t get confused about it. Just saying… I do want you to read both though, because HP rocks and I’m loving Carry On 😀

  6. Yay! I’m excited to see what you think about HP! I’ve read a couple of reviews from an adult’s perspective and generally, they didn’t enjoy it as much as those who did read it younger. But hopefully, you’ll experience the magic too! Happy reading! 😀

  7. I was going to wait until Carry On got an alternative cover, because it doesn’t fit in with the rest of my Rowell books, but I think it’s not going to happen anytime soon. I hope you’ll have fun reading it, I really want to get to it sometime soon!

    • Me too, it’s such a strange feeling, experiencing something so late in the game. I totally wanted to read it now, because it would mean I would have read the series before I turn 18 and become an adult! Woo!
      Ooh, I will definitely be getting my hands on the illustrated version after my binge read. Happy new year Anette!
