Monthly Wrap Up

December 2020 Monthly Wrap Up

Well we made it through 2020 so here’s to hoping that this year is better. However I did read some incredible books this year.

This month I read some amazing and some not so great books. Here’s what I read:

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir – A reread in preparation for Sky! My review is here

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Hijab and Red Lipstick by Yousra Imran – I really hated this book, it was so problematic. You can read my thoughts here

Rating: 0.5 out of 5.

The Once and Future Queen by Clara O’Connar – I did not enjoy this and ended up dnfing

The Cousins by Karen McManus – I enjoyed this and did not see that ending coming

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan – I loved this book so much more on my reread and I think this trilogy deserves more love.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal – Another reread in preparation for the sequel and I just love the zumra so much. My review is here

Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon – I was so disappointed by this I ended up dnfing. I wish I had enjoyed this as I love her YA books.

We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal – This book lives in my head rent free and I am still not over how much I loved this book and just how incredible the character arcs were especially Nasir and Altair’s arc and character development. My review will be up soon!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Black Khan by Ausma Zehanat Khan – This was quite different to The Bloodprint as it was set in two locations as opposed to the travelling the characters did in the first book but I still loved it so much. My review will be up soon.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir – This book is pure pain but I loved it so much. Laia’s arc is one of my favourite character arcs I have ever read. I love her so much. My review will be up soon!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Plain Bad Heroines by Emily Danforth – Unfortunately I just didn’t enjoy this writing style and couldn’t get into the story at all I ended up dnfing.

Winters Orbit by Everina Maxwell – I really enjoyed this book and especially loved the two main characters. My full review is here

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

So that’s everything I read this month!
