Welcome Back!!! The first month of 2017 is already over and I’m pleased to announced that with everything that went on in January I read a total of 3 books. Now that may not seem like a lot but when Crooked Kingdom is one of the reads and it was over 500 pages and it being taller than your average book as well as having ridiculously small font, I’m happy with 3. None of them received lower than 4 stars which is an awesome start to my reading year.
January Wrap Up:
- Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Screenplay by JK Rowling (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5)
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
To be honest I can’t pick a favourite book I read this month, they were all awesome in their own ways. Of course Fantastic Beasts was epic. It was amazing to reenter the wizarding world and because I had already seen the film before reading the screenplay, as I was turning the pages the film was replaying in my head. Amazing, recommend to all Potterheads. I can also totally understand why there is so much hype around the Six of Crows duology, I loved it. The characters, the plot, the writing was just amazing but I defiantly preferred the first book. I found the second dragged in places and Six of Crows just had action and plot twists on every page.
I’m not really sure what I want to read in this upcoming month. February is only 28 days the year so I don’t want to make my TBR too ambitious. However I am off uni for the majority of it so I’m hoping to get quite a bit done, but I’m having trouble picking out any specific books so I’m going to let my mood decide.
- Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland – I’m not very far into this book at all as I’m writing this but it’s intriguing me and I’m interested to see where the plot takes me.
I’m so happy with how my reading year is turning out so far. GoodReads is telling me I’m currently on track to finish 50 books by the end of the year which is good. How did the first month of 2017 go for you reading wise? Let’s chat in the comments. Did we read any of the same books? What are your thoughts?
