The new year has begun! I have been really happy with a lot of the posts and books that I have written and read this month. I was pretty busy (as always), but I still read 6 books this month.
Books I Read In January
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer-3.75/5 stars-After not enjoying the first book in this series a couple years ago, I decided to give the second book a chance. I am very glad that I did. Scarlet was such a fun and cool retelling that I definitely recommend.
Goodreads: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer-3/5 stars-I guess I was loving Scarlet so much that I decided to read another fairy tale related book. This book also was the second book in a series, and I definitely enjoyed it. Their were a few issues I had, but overall it was a great read.
Goodreads: The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer
Hairspray: The Complete Book and Lyrics of the Hit Broadway Musical by Mark O’Donnell-4/5 stars-I love Hairspray, so obviously when I saw the script at my library I had to read it. This was a super quick read that I recommend if you are a fan of the musical or movie.
Goodreads: Hairspray Script by Mark O’Donnel
Cress by Marissa Meyer-4.5/5 stars-I absolutely loved Cress. It was so much better than the first and second books in The Lunar Chronicles and I cannot recommend it enough. Cress was funny, action packed, and super cool. Honestly how Marissa Meyer incorporates the fairy tale elements in her story in genius.
Goodreads: Cress by Marissa Meyer
Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, and Robin Wasserman-2.75/5 stars-I’m honestly kind of over the Shadowhunter world, and that fact was confirmed after reading this book. I recommend this book if you are a Shadowhunter fan.
Shooter by Caroline Pignat-2/5 stars-I received an e-arc of Shooter via Netgalley. This book was full of annoying cliches and a not very realistic or interesting plot. The characters were so boring, and I honestly did not like any of them (with an exception of Xavier).
Review: Will Be Up Closer To Release Date
Goodreads: Shooter by Caroline Pignet
La La Land
This month I saw the movie La La Land and I absolutely loved it. The sets and the actors and the plot were all amazing. My favorite part however was the music. I have been listening to it non-stop since I first saw the movie earlier this month.
School of Rock
I’ve been meaning to jump on this band wagon since the Tony Awards last June, but I have never gotten around to listening to the cast recording until this month. School of Rock is such a fun musical that is super easy to get into. Also Andrew Lloyd Webber composed the music, so it obviously going to be good.
I have been listening to Miss Saigon for months now, but I have not really loved it until this month. I’m just in time for the Broadway revival of this musical that is coming out this year too!
This month I have finally signed up for Bloglovin’ so you can follow this blog on that now. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to discover even more fabulous blogs!

The Books I Want To Read
It is February 4th right now, and last night I saw Hamilton. It was absolutely amazing, but I will talk about it more in next months wrap up or I might write a review for the production.
That was my January wrap up! What did you do this month? Would you like to see a Hamilton review? Did you read any good books in January? I would love to know.
Currently Reading: Winter by Marissa Meyer
