Guess which idiot forgot to post her January wrap up yesterday cause she was so tired? That’s right this one. So my month was really slow on account of midterms, so I sneaked in a quick re read of a short book in there, and then I read two books right after midterms to make up for my slow month.
I think my month was also slow because I was trying to read The Well of Ascension, Mistborn book 2, and it’s giant and this trilogy takes a while to get to.
Anyhoo, let’s get into my wrap up! I read 8 books!
I read books 1 and 2 of the Mistborn trilogy!
I actually started the first book in December and basically finished it January 1st or 2nd, so really I only “read” one misbtorn book this month, Well of Ascension. I think I’ll do a trilogy review when I finish book 3 eventually.
I also read these three YA books!
So I guess I have the unpopular opinion in that I didn’t really like the Sun is also a Star…I seem to do that with Nicola Yoon’s books, everyone loves them and I don’t. I do love all 3 of these covers, they’re so gorgeous. I really liked the Midnight Star, I gave it a 4 star rating. It wasn’t as good as the Legend Trilogy I thought, but I stilled liked it! And then A Thousand Pieces of You I thought I would love because of the beautiful cover and the things I’ve heard but it disappointed me a bit.
I did a quick re-read of book 1 of the Captive prince trilogy because it’s short and I don’t have time to read…
And then I read my two favorite books of this month, Heartless by Marissa Meyer and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy!
I loved Heartless, you can read my full review here! I gave it a 4 star rating, and if you don’t know, it’s the prequel to the Queen of Hearts that we know from Alice in Wonderland basically. I also loved Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy! I gave it a 5 star rating! It was so fun being back in the world of the Mortal Instruments and this book just reminded me of my favorite characters all over again, and I could get the stupid tv show characters out of my head for a while.
Actually interesting enough, the only character that I imagined in my head from the tv show while reading was Izzy. I guess that means subconsciously I think Izzy is doing a good job…unlike Jace and Clary and pretty much everyone else…
I used to like Malec on the show but I don’t anymore, sorry if you like the Shadowhunters tv show…but I don’t, I think it sucks actually. Ooh, Simon too at times I could see as Alberto Rosende, so good job to him playing Simon too!
I also read 3/4 of Outlander this month, but I’m not going to count it since I had that cheat with Captive Prince.
What did you read this month? Link me up with your January wrap ups and I’ll check them out!
