January 2022 TBR | NewYearsathon

Happy New Year everyone!!! Holy moly! It’s 2022.

There are so many things that I would love to catch up with you all about, but I tried to spread out some of the catching up so I wasn’t just info dropping on all of you. So, look forward to all the stuff coming this month.

I will say that I’m working on this post (and many of the ones from this month) before the year is over. Actually, in this case and the case for a few of the early January posts, it’s before Christmas even.

So, general quick update: I’m hoping to get back to posting on here many-a-times a week. Sundays will be weekly updates, then you’ll be getting posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’m hoping to stick to this schedule and just rearranging if I have any “surprise” posts so that I’m not overwhelming you or myself.

Anyway, today we’re going to be getting into my plans for January! This will include my TBR for not only the month, but NewYearsathon, which I co-host with my good friend Donna from MomsBookCollection! And I’ll be briefly talking about the stuff I plan on watching throughout the month.

Also, speaking of Donna, her and I are doing a TBR game with our TBRs (though it was very last second so she may not be doing it for January) with the Et Cetera game that OwlCrate included in one of their 2021 boxes. So I drew 5 cards and you’ll see those prompts throughout this post.

So, let’s just get right into this because this intro has already been long enough.

NewYearsathon

NewYearsathon is a readathon, like I said, that I co-host with Donna from MomsBookCollection and its focus is just to ring in the New Year with some reading!

So that’s it for what I want to read next month (and I won’t lie, I’ve changed it a couple times already, but that’s not the point here)! As for what I want to watch, I have no clue. I do know that I want to catch up on all the MCU movies and shows, so I’ll probably focus on that when it comes to what I’m watching. You’ll get a better idea of what I’m watching and planning to watch through my weekly update posts that will be going up every Sunday.

Either way, I have big plans to get back to doing what I love in January, so I’m hoping for the best!

Let me know what you plan on reading in the month of January!

Thanks for joining me and I’ll see you all VERY soon with another post! Make sure to rest up and take care of yourselves!

My name is Amanda! I'm 25 years old with one son, Alex. He's my world and my everything. I have my Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing. I run the Instagram @acourtofbooksandlove, the A Court of Books and Love blog and YouTube. I hope to one day help indie authors/lesser known authors work to spread their name and get their book to where they want it to be and ready for the public's eyes. If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. For business inquires, email me at: acourtofbooksandlove@gmail.com
