Hi bookish fans!
Another fun, late posting for January, but nevertheless here I am! I read 6 books in January – way more than I thought I would with classes and working full-time. While 2 were for school (and 1 of those 2 I genuinely disliked), I did read them in their entirety and as they took a long time to read giving their contents, I am still calling them a win. Let’s begin!
★★★★★ (5/5) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling Goodreads Review
★★★★☆ (4/5) Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi Blog Review / Goodreads Review
★★★★☆ (3.5-4/5) Renegades by Marissa Meyer Blog Review / Goodreads Review
★★★★☆ (3.5-4/5) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard Goodreads Review
★★★☆☆ To Tell the Truth Freely: The Life of Ida B. Wells by Mia Bay
★★☆☆☆ A History of Medieval Heresy and Inquisition by Jennifer Deane
★★★★★ Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan Short Goodreads Review
I read this book at the VERY end of December and almost into January, so while it doesn’t count for January I LOVED this book SO much I hope more people read it. It’s a historical fiction based on a real person and events in WWII. MUST read.
I read a few great books in January, and while the nonfiction books for my classes weren’t terrible, they were informative and I love learning so I enjoyed that aspect of them. I did have a hard time posting reviews for some books since I got busy and hope that I can get better about posting individual reviews as I continue reading and writing.
- Really been looking for people’s reviews on the Red Queen as I have gone back and forth on this. I know I’m late to the game on this book but still want to know thoughts if you have any!
