All I can say is thank goodness that January is over. It’s been a long month- I had a stomach bug/cold last weekend and I’ve been busy getting my mom to a variety of doctor appointments. I’m hoping February will be a healthy month.
1. What do you think about previously published books being re-published with shiny new covers? This Kristan Higgins book threw itself in my shopping cart the other day and I thought it was a new KH book. But it’s a re-print of a 2011 book.

Ya’ll can we talk about new covers for old books? So I really love Kristan Higgins books ( the ones I’ve read anyway) and the other week I’m minding my business when this paperback just flings itself into my cart ( 😂 does that happen to you?) . . Anyway I haven’t read this one & I was kinda like ‘hmmm… how did I miss a new KH book?’ However, this isn’t a new one- it’s an old one re-packaged with a pretty new cover. I believe when I further investigated that this is a 2011 originally published book. . . So…. are you a fan of older books being re-printed into new covers? . . #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booksofig #booksofinsta #bookstagramandcoffee

3. January was rough- health-wise, busy wise…. but book mail wise it was fantastic. I think I’ll be reading The Burning Island by Hester Young next 🙂
4. I received an ARC of Glory Road- is this book on your TBR list?
