January’s New Books! (Aka my Goodreads wish list for the month)

Hellooooo and welcome to our first blogging week of January =D This panda is really glad that 2016 is over and I hope everyone’s lives get better in 2017!

We’re gathered here today for my monthly wishlist based on Goodreads’ popular book releases list and on what I have on my shelves over there =) I accept donations in case someone wants to gift me with any of those books LMAO #justkidding #ormaybenot #Ilovegifts #butwhodoesn’t?

Ps: you’ll notice some big authors weren’t featured on this post despite having new releases on January, but that is because I wasn’t impressed with their books? Sorry :/

  1. That cover for The Book Jumper!! I just love it. I remember seeing a fellow blogger review it, but I cannot remember who, but I do know they really enjoyed it. I also have Caraval on my TBR as well. I have a feeling it is going to be a hot read this year 🙂

  2. Yay so glad you want to read Behind Her Eyes! It’s soooo good. I can’t wait to talk about the ending!! And I’m also glad to see you want to read Caraval, because I am desperate to read it. Maybe we can restart book club and make it a buddy read 😛 xxx
