January Wrap up!

January started off to be a very good reading month for me. Normally I'm always a little behind, especially since my goal is only 40 books for the entire year, so it means I can slack a little and watch crappy Netflix films. Anyhow, this month I've surprised myself by reading Ten books. Two of those were DNF's, but the other 8 I read right through until the end.

Here is what I read:

The Precious Stone Trilogy by Kerstin Gier - 4.5/5

I loved this trilogy. It was such a fun, quick series and I loved the characters of Gwendolyn, Lesley and Gideon. There were a few errors with translating and the pacing wasn't perfect in Emerald Green, but I had the best time reading it. A great way to start the new year!

Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover - 3.5/5

I loved Slammed so much and thought it should've been a standalone, but I was eager to continue on. However, Point of Retreat was a really messy, cliché piece of fiction and I was just read upset that I had decided to read it because it's affected the way I see Slammed. I still love Colleen Hoover though and I'm thoroughly looking forward to the release of Confess.

Tempt Me by Isabel Morin - 3/5

I somewhat enjoyed this book, but there was a lot of work needed to improve it. There were grammar and spelling errors in the book that stood out, the characters were a little flat and the ending wasn't satisfying.

Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell - 5/5

I loved this book so much. It was a gorgeous read that opened my eyes to life and how short a lifespan can be if you don't live it to the fullest. The writing was beautiful, the characters were very real and flawed. My only slight critique would be the insta-love for one of the characters, other than that it was pretty perfect.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Mass - 4.5/5

I received an ARC copy of this from the publishers and de
spite not liking Throne of Glass, I really loved A Court of Thorns and Roses. It was a beautiful, action pact fantasy novel that had me compelled from page 1. I didn't want to put it down and the fact that it did that shows just how good a book it is. I seriously can't wait for you all to meet Tamlin because he is everything you'd want in a Book Boyfriend. Or Book Husband.

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - 4.5/5

I really enjoyed this book. It was a super fun read with witches, vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters and faeries. Paranormal has really become a favourite genre of mine lately and I cannot stop reading it. I am currently reading the sequel, Demonglass and I can say that I'm not enjoying it as much as Hex Hall.

Books I DNF'd

  1. I like the sound of Hex Hall, Kieran, and also the Precious Stone trilogy. My favourite colours ... if I were to be influenced by book covers. :P

    I have Throne of Glass but haven't read it yet (the TBR pile is still close to tumbling from its skyscraper height!)

    Thanks for the wrap up, I enjoyed it. :)
