5 Star Reads


4-4.5 Star Reads



3-3.5 Star Reads


January’s insights!

January’s count blows December out of the water!  Look at that, I read 11 books!  I feel really good about that.  I also feel like I read a nice array of genres in January.  I think that’s one of my monthly goals, to keep my book selection fresh.  I find when I try to read too many books from the same genre I get burnt out.  That’s when I find myself falling into a slump.  Seeing January’s list of books read, I feel good about spreading my love out.

I do think that this was a cheat month.  Both of my 5 star reads come from two of my favorites.  Captive Prince is one of my all time favorite series, and Josh Lanyon is in my top 2 favorite M/M romance and mystery authors.  While both of the short stories were good, I may have given them 5 stars because they mean so much to me.

I finally read Burn for Me, which has been on my to read shelf forever.  I want to say it was the biggest surprise, because I kept pushing it back and it turned out so good.  On the other hand, I’m not actually that surprised.  Ilona Andrews is incredible author.

Also, another thing to note, I didn’t read anything that was rated lower than 3 stars.  I love that.  If I got my way everything I read would be good.

All in all, January was a great reading month.

What I’ve got my eye on for February?

My list of scheduled reviews for February looks more full than I like to schedule.  It’s partially because TJ Klune’s next book is coming out, and that means I have to squeeze in The Queen and the Homo Jock King first.  They’re the same series, and it’s TJ KLUNE!  I’m also so excited that I’m going to read Burning World this month!  I’ve been waiting years for this one.  Fair Chance… I’m so excited for that one too.  I love Josh Lanyon!  February looks like it’s shaping up to be a great month.


If I can squeeze them in, I really want to read this series.  Angie Elle at BaBAMB has been raving about it for weeks now.  I think if I don’t get to it soon she may strangle me.

Angie, I’m working on it!

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

        I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews on it… so I’ve been a bit hesitant. But I’ve gotta read it because I was approved for it on NetGalley! I’m obligated! Lol!
