I feel like everyone always says this, but boy did this month feel like years. A lot of things happened this month, and you’d think it would go by faster that way, but nope. Honestly for me the true year starts in February, haha!
Anyway, I did do some reading this month of course. Probably not as much as I liked, but enough to make a nice January Wrap Up post! And I’m still on track for my Goodreads reading challenge, so it’s all good.
Neverseen – Shannon Messenger
My first finished book of 2020 was this awesome Middle Grade. I’ve been really enjoying this series since I started reading it, and I love that it’s actually really popular among middle graders as well. In this book I finally got to learn more about the secret Black Swan. My only issue with it is that it wasn’t as fast paced as the previous three books, in my opinion.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – Newt Scamandar ( – J.K. Rowling)
Fun fact: this was my first ever completed audio book! I got it via the Libby app and it was read by Eddie Redmayne. Secretly I really enjoyed it. I listened to the book while I was working on my blog, and since it takes less than two hours to finish the book, one sitting was enough. I think I’ll try to listen to more audiobooks in the future!
Morning Star – Pierce Brown
And now my favorite book of this January wrap up. Reading Golden Son kind of left me shattered in a million different pieces, and I had to put myself together with super glue in other to read this one. Sorry it took so long. Point is, I’m shattered again! These books are just so good and I highly recommend you pick them up.
A Grimm Warning – Chris Colfer
My last January read was again a middle grade novel. This is the third book in the Land of Stories series, and it was high time that I picked it up again! Where the Keeper of the Lost Cities series often deals with more serious themes, The Land of Stories is more likely to be funny. It also definitely has serious themes like dealing with death, but the overall story is a lot lighter. I really enjoyed this book, even though the plot was slower to pick up, and there was a great cliffhanger at the end!
