Casee: January was good to me reading wise. Whenever I looked outside and saw all the horrible snow, I picked up a book to get my mind off of it. I’m glomming Lexi Blake right now and am loving her.

My absolute favorite of this month was Satisfaction by Lexi Blake. I loved Bran. Loved him. Loved, loved, loved him. I thought Drew was it for me with the Lawless series, but I am pretty sure that it’s Bran. If you haven’t read this series, you should. Revenge and romance. Check. Then of course I had to go back and read about all the Taggarts. I’m also really enjoying rereading the In Death series, even if I’m doing it out of order.
Holly: I had a pretty blase reading month. A lot of re-reads and not-so-stellar books.
- Malsum Pass by Kimberly Forrest | DNF
- Bluebird Winter by Linda Howard (reread) | 2.75/5
- Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.5/5

- Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4/5
- Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs (reread) | 4.5/5
- Heart of Fire by Linda Howard (reread) | 5/5
My favorite new read of the month was probably Stolen Magic by Marina Finlayson. I enjoyed the premise and the world. I didn’t enjoy that it ended on a cliffhanger. My least favorite new read was probably Murdered Gods. It felt very short and ended on another cliffhanger (yes, I’m still whinging about that).
Rowena: January was a great reading month for me. I started the year off right and went ham with my reading. I read a lot of great books:

- Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven | 4 out of 5
- The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon | 4 out of 5
My favorite read of the month goes to Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre and Hard Hitter by Sarina Bowen. Both books were fun reads that kept me entertained from beginning to end. Some honorable mentions to Winning the Wallflower by Eloisa James and Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally.
My least favorite read of the month probably goes to #famous by Jilly Gagnon and Fury on Fire by Sophie Jordan. Famous by Jilly Gagnon was a bit young for me and Fury on Fire wasn’t bad but it wasn’t my favorite either.
