Welcome to my January Wrap Up. I have had a great reading month, finishing 10 books (7 books off my TBR). I also received 7 ARC’S in January. I’m happy with my reading this month. I have been on Holidays so I got through quite a few books this month.
I have reviews up or coming up for these books so as usual this is just going to be a brief run down on each book I read.
Without further ado, let’s get into my January Wrap Up…
Out Of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys: I loved this book. This is the second book by Ruta Sepetys that I have read and I am in love with her writing. This book had amazing characters in a great setting and an unbelievable plot. I wish it hadn’t ended. I cant wait to read more books by Ruta Sepetys.
Quark’s Academy by Catherine Pelosi: This book was amazing. The concept of this book made for a really entertaining read. I loved the diverse yet relatable characters, and I though the science in this book was amazingly written. This book is perfect for young readers and their families.
Get Remarkably Organised by Lorraine Murphy: This great book is filled will tips and exercises to help you get organised and live your best life. Some of the tips in this book didn’t really relate to me, but I have taken note of the ones that I think will benefit my life. If you are struggling with staying on top of all the tasks you have to get accomplished or you want to be more productive then this is the book for you.
Hunting Prince Dracular by Kerri Maniscalco: This book was absolutely amazing. I was so excited to read this book after finishing Stalking Jack The Ripper, so I definitely had high hope heading into it. Thankfully it not only lived up to but exceeded my expectations. I am so excited that we are getting a third book, I cannot wait to delve into another mystery with Audrey Rose and Thomas.
The Selection by Kiera Cass: I didn’t know what to expect going into this book, I didn’t think i was going to like it. Luckily I was wrong; I loved it. It was fun, easy to read and thoroughly entertaining. I honestly can’t wait to dive into the rest of this series. So glad I picked this book up.
The Elite by Kiera Cass: This book was amazing. After loving The Selection so much I was both excited and apprehensive about this book. Thankful it not only lived up to its predecessor but exceeded it. I loved getting a deeper insight it this world and these amazing characters and I am so excited to dive into book three.
The One by Kiera Cass: They say ‘third times the charm’, in this case they are completely right. This book was amazing, I loved getting to learn more about the characters and palace life, and I really loved the darker and more emotional moments that were in this book. This series is fast becoming a favourite of mine and I can’t wait to read more.
The Heir by Kiera Cass: I really wanted to love this book like it did its predecessors but unfortunately I didn’t. I loved getting to see America and Maxon again, as well as the other characters I had grown to love in the first three books, but I just couldn’t warm to these new characters. I didn’t realise that America wasn’t the main character until I started this book, if I had I may have stopped this series after the original trilogy. Now that I have started with Eadlyn’s story I’m going to read the rest of the series, I’m just going to lower my expectations.
The Crown by Kiera Cass: I’m glad I decided to finish this series. Whilst I would have been more than happy for it to have been a trilogy, I did end up enjoying this book more than I thought I would. I don’t know if it is because we got to see more of the original characters or if it’s because Eadlyn’s was less annoying in this book. Whatever the reason I’m glad i didn’t give up on this series after the fourth book.
Queens Of Geek by Jen Wilde: Even though I ended up enjoying this book, I kind of wish it was two individuals books. I didn’t like switching between narrators and I felt that both of these characters and their stories were strong enough on their own. I would love to see more stories on both Taylor and Charlie, even if they are only novellas. Great characters like these young women deserve to shine.
That’s it for my January Wrap Up. Let me know what you guys read this month.
Until my February Wrap Up…
