January Wrap Up

Hello and welcome to my January wrap up. 🙂 I hope everyone had a great January to start 2017 on a good note. Overall, the month was good, I was able to read 8.5 books. I was able to read that much because I participated in the Bi-annual Bibliothon. I will list them in order in which I read at the start of the month to what I am currently reading now.

Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

January Wrap Up Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Throught the Looking Glass

This was my first time reading these classic works by Lewis Carrol and I enjoyed reading this nonsensical world he created. I already want to re-read them soon.

Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley

I loved this book and highly recommend reading. My only 5 star rating for the month. I did a review for this and will leave a link if you would like to know more of my thoughts. Lies We Tell Ourselves Book Review.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

January Wrap Up Stalking Jack the Ripper

I was hoping to like this more than I did. I ended u finding it predictable, which lost its air of mystery. I gave Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco 3 stars and I also did a review. Stalking Jack the Ripper Review

Winter by Marissa Meyer

January Wrap Up Winter by Marissa Meyer

I thought this was a great conclusion to an awesome series. If you haven’t read this series I recommend you pick it up and give it a try. I am sad that it’s over but happy that I read it. I gave winter 4 stars.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

January Wrap Up Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I didn’t have high expectations going into this one and I think that is why I ended up liking it more that I thought I would. I ended up giving Red Queen 3 stars. Read my review if youhaven’t already. Red Queen Book Review.

A Court of Thornes and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

January Wrap Up A Court of Throns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury

I finally read ACOTAR this month and after all the hype surrounding this series I have to say I was slightly disappointed. I thought it was slow going and didn’t feel the chemistry between Tamlin and Fayreh.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

So, I only managed to get about halfway through this one it is quite a chunky book and is also slow going for me. So, far I am preferring this one to ACOTAR. Hopefully, I will have this finished soon and then I can get started on the books I want to read in February.

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

January Wrap Up Stars Above Marissa Meyer

I wasn’t quite ready to let the world Marissa Meyer created to end. So,  I just had to pick up this collection of short stories and I found them all to be enjoyable. It was great to get a glimpse of each of the characters before the events that took place in Cinder.

That’s everything I read this month, thanks for reading. Let me know what you read in January and your thoughts on the books I read.
