#92 January in books

January was a weird month reading wise, I read two books in the first week (the first book was one I started late December) but then I seemed to just stop reading, but I really wanted to do a monthly wrap up so here we are!

A Monster Calls, Patrick Ness - ★★★★☆

I was mostly motivated to read this book because of the film (which I'm still yet to see) and I really enjoyed it!
It was heartbreaking and I was a little lost at places but I get why everyone loves it so much!

Wing Jones, Katherine Webber - ★★★★★

I adored this book and I still can't stop thinking about it (or talking about it online)! 
From the gorgeous cover and sprayed pages to the beautiful story itself - this book is one I urge everyone to read! Make sure to read my full review here!

The Princess Diarist, Carrie Fisher - DNF
I started this book with full intentions of finishing it but only read 50 pages, mostly because I'm still so upset about Carrie's death - it's going to be a while until I can pick it up again! 

Charisma, Jeanne Ryan - ★★★☆☆ (and a half)
At first, I really enjoyed Charisma, it wasn't quite what I expected it to be which I think is always a good thing! 
However, towards the end, it started to drag on a bit and I found it really slow at places.

Maresi, Maria Turtschaninoff - ★★★★☆

If you read my Waterstones haul you'll have seen that I picked up this pretty little book (x)
I really enjoyed this book,despite a slow start once the pace picked up I ended up finishing the book in one sitting! I just couldn't put it down!

Overall, I enjoyed Maresi but for a more detailed review make sure to check out my blog post from last week (x)! 

What were you reading in January? Let me know in the comments so I can add your recommendations to my never-ending TBR!

  1. Would definitely love to hear what you think of Carrie Fisher's book when you're able to pick it up again! Her death was a real blow so I can totally understand why you didn't feel able to read it!

  2. I don't actually read many books and if I do it tends to be crime ones! Wing Jones sounds interesting so maybe I'll have to try that out :)!

  3. I love reading post like these because I haven't had a legit reading list in a awhile. I think I am going to look into a Monsters Call!

  4. I feel bad, I didn't know any of these books. I am currently reading Harry Potter and the half-blood prince and How to be a parisian. Depends on my mood. But this book from Carrie Fisher sounds great! A new addition to my reading list! xx Corinne from Corinne & Kirsty

  5. Always looking for book recommendations! I'm reading The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet atm and its good but it's taking a while to get through (not a "can't put it down" for sure). Think I'm definitely going to try A Monster Calls next. Sounds amazing! Jess xx

  6. Very happy I came across your blog via #TeaCupClub 😊💕 I write book reviews once a week, so as you say, I'm also always on the lookout for the next book to read 😀 And I think I've just find a couple.

  7. I really want to read A Monster Call and Wing Jones. I read Girl On The Train in two days now I am on Britt Marie was here which isnt normally my sort of read but the main character reminds me of someone so I think its funny x


Hey! Thanks for reading, please do leave a comment it helps a lot x
