Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome back to my blog and today, we’re talking about the books I have picked out to read in January. For me, January is definitely about a fresh start and reading some books I might have missed out on in 2021 along with catching up with some series. I also plan on diving into some authors’ backlists as well.
First of all, let’s start off with the book clubs and challenges I’ll be doing in 2022. First is obviously the Hoemance Book Club that I co-host with Ellyn. I’ll also be participating in her “Romance Buzzword” challenge every month. Additionally, I’m a member on a BookTube channel where we buddy-read a book each month. Last but not least, I decided to do the Golden Girls Reading Challenge for 2022 as well.
With that being said, let’s get into the books I have picked out for each and some other books I have on my TBR.
January Hoemance Book Club Pick
For January, we’re going to be reading Weather Girl by Rachel Lynn Solomon. This is a book I’m super excited yet nervous about. I did enjoy The Ex Talk but it didn’t end up being a new favorite so I’m excited but I’m also a little bit anxious, too.
Happy For Now Members Pick
For Happy For Now, we’re buddy-reading Three of Hearts by Lillian Lark. This is a series that’s connected to another book we read last year. Honestly, I really enjoyed that book so I’m excited to read more from Lillian Lark.
Romance Buzzword Pick: “Royal/Royals (Royal Terms”)
For this one, I’m going to reading Queen which is the final book in Katee Robert’s Bloodline Vampires series and I’m so excited to get to it. I binged the last two while at my boyfriend’s so I’m excited to finally finish this series.
Golden Girls Reading Challenge: City/Country Name
I decided to go with Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean for this one. Spoiler alert: I already read it and enjoyed it. Even so, it gave me major Princess Diaries vibes and honestly, made me feel like I was in Tokyo. Everything was so beautiful and lush, definitely a huge surprise for me in 2022 already.
In addition to reading those books, I do plan on reading all of Christina C Jones’ backlist in 2022 so don’t be surprised if her books come up a lot. I’m also participating in a readathon which you’ll see a TBR for soon. I also might read the rest of Jack Harbon’s backlist, too. Either way, I’m excited to kick off another year of reading. 🙂
