My Favourite Books That I Read In January 2018
I managed to read 21 books last month and that’s pretty normal for January for me. It’s the month I’m not crazy busy with work, I’m still off from uni and I’m just taking a good break. I’ve noticed over the last couple of years that I read a whole heap of books in the first 2 months and then I slow down.
So today I thought would share some of my favourite books that I read in January this year. It’s been an up and down month for me. There were some that I loved and some that weren’t for me. I have yet to read a full 5-star book this year – which is a little disappointing, but some have come close.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I really loved The Cruel Prince. It’s addicting, dark and messes with your emotions. It’s a world of court intrigue and the conflict between fae and humans. It explores the notion of being human and the emotions that come with it. It’s fast-paced with many twists and turns that throw you off. The Cruel Prince has set up a fantastic new series for Holly Black. This has to be one my favourite reads in January. Check out my full review.
Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: This was a re-read in January. I read it a couple of years ago, but then I heard that there was going to be a spin-off series, I knew I had to do a re-read. And it was so worth it. I love the character, the romance, the plot. It’s addicting and pulls me right in from the start. It’s aliens with a twist.
Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry: Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry is intense and takes you on a journey. It’s heartbreaking and uplifting. It explores family, social standards and second chances. With classic Katie McGarry romance Say You’ll Remember Me is an exploration of teen love and it’s ups and downs. You can check out my full review as well.
And there we go! It’s not a big batch especially with how many I read, but most of my reads from January were 3.5 Stars. Which in reality isn’t horrible.
