Another month has flown by. A decent reading month for me, I read 7 books in January. So this is going to be a long-ish post. Best to get on with it.
Fear the Drowning Depp by Sarah Glenn Marsh
First book I read this year. It was a bit of a disappointment for me, a bit too insta-lovey and way too lacking in sea monsters. Plus, I didn’t really like any of the characters and I was downright annoyed by the MC. The setting was really cool though, so it’s got that going for it. You can read my full review of it here if you are interested.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
This is one of those books for which the hype is entirely justified. It was incredibly powerful and emotional. This book terrified me, to be honest. I really do recommend this to everyone because I feel like it’s relevant to every single person. I have a review of this one as well, which you can read here.
Pale Highway by Nicholas Conley
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review. Based on the synopsis, I really thought I would enjoy it, but it was just so… weird. It made me kind of uncomfortable to read. The writing was good, and there were ideas that had merit, but just… no. It was too bizarre. And that, coming from me is saying something. But I think I just draw the line at talking slugs and evil sperm monsters. Full review here.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K Rowling
I started rereading the HP series. Read the first two last year. Of course, I loved it. It’s strange, I enjoyed this book now more than I did the first time I read it. For some reason, this was my least favourite HP book when I first read the series.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah. J. Maas
Another reread. And finally, FINALLY, after the third reread, I actually reviewed this book. I cannot wait until the last one comes out (especially now that we have the cover!!!). My love for this series, and particularly ACOMAF knows no bounds. You can find the tardy review here, but it has spoilers. So be warned.
Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise Part One
A bit disappointing. Not much happened, so it was kind of boring. I enjoyed the art though. Still, I am hoping that the subsequent parts are more interesting and full of… stuff going on. Haven’t written a review of this on account of not really having much to say about it. Maybe I should write one nonetheless.
A Toaster on Mars by Darell Pitt
The last book I read in January was sadly not a very memorable one. I honestly don’t remember much about this book. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t good either. It was just… mediocre. I mean, I enjoyed it while I was reading it, but it didn’t leave much of an impression. You can read my full review of it here.
