January Reading Wrap-up

R.jpg
Wow! I can’t believe the month is already over. January has been not only a great month, but I also read a lot of books! In total, 17. In this post, I’ll mention every book I read (chronologically) and give a short review + my rating.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

The first book I read of the year was Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes, aka the 2nd book in the popular Falling Kingdoms series. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll just say that it was a really fast-paced and entertaining book, but it had WAAAAAAY too much instalove and romancey shit. Plus, the story was super cliche. But again, like I said, it was addicting to read.

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Unwholly, which was also another 2nd book in a series, was my second read of the year. I found it to be really easy to follow, yet thought provoking. I really like this series thus far.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was mediocre for the hype, and while I flew through it, I found that the story was super cliche, and some of the characters were quite annoying.

A good book, with good premises, and good characters, but there was no plot.

The 3rd book in the Falling Kingdoms series.

Super super epic and fun to read, but again, like Rebel Spring, too much romance and cliches for my taste.

Fun book, but waaaaaaaaay too cliche dystopian premises. I really liked the main character though, she was kind of funky and different.

Book #4 in the Mistborn series.

Really sad I couldn’t award one of my favorite authors 5 stars. I wasn’t a huge fan of the main character, and I thought the story moved kind of slow.

My first 5 star book of many to come! I loved Rick Riordan’s new novel, unlike many others. It was a refreshing break from typical YA, and romance.

I actually reread this book, because I didn’t feel like reading anything else. 😄 But I loved it the 2nd time around as well, although my rating didn’t really change.

My friend Kimi got me this book for my birthday, and I really liked it! It was cliche, but I really liked the main character… And that ending O.O

I gave this 5 stars because I sobbed at the end of it, and I thought it had a nice message. I have to say though, the main character was pretty bitchy, and some parts of the story were mediocre, but whatever.. 😄

I read The Eye of Minds all in one sitting (which I rarely do nowadays). The writing was easy to read, and the story was enjoyable to a certain extent. The MC was really bitchy though, and I was confused on a lot of the story.

Entertaining book but the MC was super irritating.

I was recommended Aslyum by the girl whose locker is next to mine, and I was pretty disappointed. It wasn’t scary really at all, and the ending was stupid.

Fun and cute graphic novel, although the drawings could’ve been better.

Book 4 in the Falling Kingdoms series.

Fuck all the annoying tropes I hated during the rest of the series. Frozen Tides was so epic and awesome I couldn’t not give it 5 stars.

 

 


That’s it! I hope you guys liked reading about my crap long post that took a shit load of time to make…XD

Comment your favorite book of the month! ^-^

  1. The first time I heard about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, people really seemed to like it, but now most of the reviews I see are a bit negative. What happened?! Anyway, you read some amazing books. I haven’t read them, but they sound amazing!

  2. I read the first book in the Fallen Kingdoms series this month. And I have a feeling that I’m gonna like the rest of the series a lot. Thanks for the short snippets on each one. I also really like Eye of Minds. I read it really fast too, but I agree that it was a bit confusing at points. Great post and really wish I had your speedy reading skills! I only got through five books this month…

    • Aha, I’m trying to pick up the pace for my reading for the next few months, because over the entire summer I will be traveling in China and Malaysia + visiting relatives and I will have almost no time to read! I have no clue how I’ll finish my 150 book challenge… 😄

      • Haha, well I wish you luck! I used to read more than 10 a month then life happened and my current average is about 5 or 6. I’m trying to work on making that larger though. I actually set my goal at 100 books this year but at this rate I don’t think that’s gonna happen so I moved it down to 75. I hope you can reach your goal!
