Monthly Wrap Up

January Monthly Wrap Up

Can you believe that January has already ended?! This month simultaneously felt like it lasted forever and that it was over in the blink of an eye.

I’ve decided to limit how many books I buy each month as my bookcases are full and my TBR is ridiculous! I think I did really well as I had three preorders this month and I only bought one more on top of those!

I also had a really great reading month I read 12 books and some really amazing books this month!


This month I read:

Evermore by Sara Holland – this was the first book I read this year and to be honest I was a little disappointed. I still enjoyed the book but it wasn’t as good as Everless.
Rating: 3/5

Kick the Moon by Muhammad Khan – I loved this book so much! it deals with toxic masculinity and has British Pakistani Muslim characters and I feel it’s a book that young boys and girls should definitely read! You can read my review here
Rating: 5/5

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty – why yes I did read this book for the fourth time. And I will definitely be reading it again this year. This series is my new favourite and I just can’t get enough! My review is here if you want any more reasons why you should all read it!
Rating: 5/5

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon – this was a reread as part of a readalong and I loved the book just as much the second time around!
Rating: 4.5/5

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer – this is the first time I read this book since I was a kid and oh my god! So. Much. Nostalgia. I love how sassy and sarcastic the characters and I’ve fallen in love with this series all over again.

Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen McManus – I loved this book as much as One of Us Is Lying and I am really looking forward to more!
Rating: 5/5

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada – Holy Crap! This book is amazing! The first chapter had me completely hooked and in shock and I read this book in one evening.
Rating: 5/5

Slayer by Kiersten White – I have mixed feelings about this book. While I did enjoy it I felt it took a long time to get really interesting and then the ending was a little rushed.
Rating: 3/5

The Dark Days Deceit by Alison Goodman – I adored the first two books so much but this last book was disappointing. Nothing happened until the very end which made it really boring and made me lose interest. I feel like I expected something different. I expected a lot more action.
Rating: 3/5

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo – my reread finished just in time for the release of King of Scars. I think I loved the grisha trilogy even more than I did when I read it a few years ago. I’m still team Darkling!
Rating: 5/5

Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton – While I thought the story was interesting I felt it moved really slow until the very end which made me struggle to really get in to it.
Rating: 3/5

The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty – I am dead. That is all.
Rating: 5/5

Aside from these books I also reviewed a few books that I read in previous months. You can find the reviews for each of the books here:

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen – Rating: 4/5

Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen – Rating: 4/5

Light Years by Kass Morgan – Rating: 4/5

So that’s everything I read and reviewed this month. I am hoping to have some reviews of the books I read this month up in the next few weeks. Well…once I can figure out how to convert incoherent squealing into an actual review.

How many books did you read in January? What was your favourite book?
