I am very proud of myself because I managed to finish seven books this month. Well, according to my Goodreads reading challenge, I’m one book behind schedule (I want to read a minimum of 100 books in 2017), but I consider this to be a good start to the year.
Also, I’m not going to do a separate post on my Winter Biannual Bibliothon wrap up, so I’ll be putting that here too.
Okay, I’ve never done a wrap up on my blog before, so here we go!
Books Read for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon:
- Stolen by Lucy Christopher
- Starflight by Melissa Landers
- Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
- Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova (this one I completed the day after the bibliothon ended, but I’m going to include that here anyway)
Other Books Read in the Month of January:
- Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
- A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey
- The Falconer by Elizabeth May
- The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May (this one I finished February 1, but I’m counting it as well)
So, I’ll be only talking about the books that stood out to me in this wrap up, but if you are interested in knowing what the other books are about, you can find them on Goodreads.
I have reviews for Stolen, Girl Online, and A Breath of Frost, so I won’t be talking much about those either. You can check my reviews out if you’re interested in the books! (I am also planning on posting a review of Incarnate, so I won’t be talking about that book either.)
That leaves us with just 3 books, but don’t worry because I have things to say about them and I will mention the other books (just not giving too many detailed thoughts on them).
Now, my favorite book of the month was The Vanishing Throne. It was amazing. It’s the second book in The Falconer series. I loved the series. This might be my new favorite series of the year (even though the year just started). I flew through the first two books. The second book was even better than the first—it was filled to the brim with action, emotion, and enormous revelations. I could not put it down.
This is a must-read series. I 100% recommend. Go buy it. Borrow it from a library. Anything. Just read the books.
Now, The Vanishing Throne was my favorite not because the first book wasn’t good because it was amazing too, but I felt like the second book had way more action and more importantly: HUGE REVELATIONS. I was totally hooked.
For my least favorite book of the month, I’m going to have to say it was Girl Online. You can see my full thoughts about it in my review, but the general idea is that it had way too many YA clichés.
Lastly, let’s talk about Labyrinth Lost. I loved this book. At the time, I thought it would be my favorite of the month, but though it isn’t, I will say that the writing was really easy to get into and the book was incredibly fascinating and diverse. I would definitely recommend this book as well.
That’s it for now. Thanks for reading! 🙂
