It’s been 4 years of the Angie Way! I can’t believe it. The name of this organization system was coined by my friend Kylie Jo, she’s on Instagram as @litwithkyliejo. In university, I was a history major, and every week I had to read specific chapters from text books, and articles from historical journals for multiple classes. So I started putting post it’s on all my books, scheduling when each reading had do be finished. And I would check them off as I went through the semester. It really helped me keep up with all my school reading, so later in life when I joined bookstagram and wanted to read as many books as possible each month, I started using the system again.

Here is my Angie Way for January! It’s already wrong but we will get into that. I chose books based on a few things. 2 books are from my 23 Books for 2023 list so that I can get a jump start on that. 2 books are from my Aardvark book box subscription. I started it in October and have been getting 1 or 2 books every month since, and I’ve only read one of them. So I wanted to prioritize them. Then I chose a nonfiction book because I gave myself the goal of reading 10 nonfiction books this year. But when I made my list, I had only just started reading Come As You Are but now I’m almost finished it. So I decided to replace that one on the plan with Burnout by the same author.
Here is my Janaury TBR!
- Burnout by Emily and Amelia Nagoski – This is all about stress, specifically how it effects women differently than men.
- Ledge by Stacey McEwan – Stacey is on Instagram as @stacebokspace and I love her content. She started doing a reel series about turning your man into a fictional character while she was writing this book and it’s so funny. So I ordered this book simply to support an indie author and someone I follow on Instagram! Ledge is the first book in a fantasy trilogy.
- Raybearer by Jordan Ikueko – I have had this one on my shelf for years. I even ordered the UK editions of the duology because I liked the covers better, and still haven’t read them. Raybearer is a fantasy book with the basic trope of gain the Prince’s trust and then kill him, but the main character is being coerced to do it, she doesn’t actually want to. It has really good reviews, so I’m looking forward to reading it.
- The Socialite’s Guide to Murder by SK Golden is the first book in a new mystery series set in the 1950’s at the Pinnacle Hotel!
- Twice in a Lifetime by Melissa Baron is a time-crossed romance. Meaning the main love interests exist in different times but are able to communicate. This one sounds sad, but heartwarming and I’m looking forward to reading it!
So there you have it! That’s my TBR for January. Are any of these books on your radar or on your TBR?
