January Round Up & Book of the Month!

January’s book of the month is… Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal!
So I’ve practically spent all of January threatening people to read this book or else! And not only have people been buying it but they’ve ALL loved it too. This is such a fantastic 2011 debut novel that every girl/woman needs to read. If you’ve ever been in love you will relate to this book. It’s that simple. If you haven’t checked it out already you really, really should. This book and Lorraine is going to be HUGE I just know it so you should be a trendsetter and read it before it gets big just so that you can say you were there before all the hype came along. To find out more about the fabulous Other Words For Love check out my review HERE.

It was my 21st birthday this month so I got a lot a lot of books PLUS a Kindle which I absolutely love. I got to meet up with my bestie and bookish friend Rachel and we went book shopping (even though we didn’t buy that many books it was still good to see her!) Also wrote my very first discussion post which was really successful so I’m proud of that, oh and I got an awesome goodie bag sent to me from the lovely ladies at Random House. It’s been a very good month! Bookish Lows of the month MY COMPUTER DIEING AGAIN!!!! This subject is driving me mad and I haven’t got much to say about it other than arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I also didn’t get as many books read as I would have liked because I’ve been uber busy. Book’s I’m looking forward to in February Oooh so many! You Don't Have to Say You Love Me by Sarra Manning which is out now I just don’t have it yet. Haven by Kristi Cook (eeep!!!) and best of all Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting the US edition comes out this month and I’ll probably buy that instead of waiting an extra couple weeks for the UK copy to be released because I CAN NOT wait I CAN NOT wait!!!!!!!!!!! So that’s my reading for January all summed up for you guys. All links lead to reviews on my blog for each book. Have you read any of the books I’ve read this month? What were your thoughts on them? Leave me a comment and let me know and don’t forget to treat yourselves to Other Words for Love! – You won’t regret it! ^_^


  1. You've read lots of books this month that are either on my shelf waiting for me to read or pre-ordered. All of them sound fab, especially Entangled. I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into that one!

  2. Jess dahling! I've finally got my review up for Other Words for Love although I seem to spend more time getting all serious on issues then talking about how simply marvellous the book was. :P

  3. I got Other Words for Love for my birthday and can't wait to read it! I also have Chocker so you have me super exited to read both!

  4. Ok I REALLY need to read Other Words for Love. I have it sitting on my bookshelf! As well as Across the Universe! Oh and Desires of the Dead.. AWESOME!! ;-) I read it in December. Did you see my review? There are no spoilers.

  5. I really enjoyed Other Words For Love as well, but my favourite read of the month was Entangled. That book just smacked me in the face and reading the title anywhere makes my breath hitch for a moment thinking about it again.

    And yes for Desires of the Dead!!! I'm not waiting for the UK release either, so desperate to get my hands on a copy!!
