January Wrap Up

January is over! Which means that it's time for a monthly wrap up.

This month I read a total of 12 books, which is ok. I'm 4 books ahead of my Goodreads reading schedule. Hopefully this trend will continue throughout the next month.

Reviewed Books:

"The Beastly Arms" by Patrick Jennings

Genre: Middle Grade

"All the Bright Places" by Jennifer Niven

Genre: Contemporary

"But You Did Not Come Back" by Marceline Loridan-Ivens

Genre: Non Fiction

Genre: History

"Rebel of the Sands" (Rebel of the Sands #1) by Alwyn Hamilton

Genre: High Fantasy

Non-Reviewed Books:

"The Scandal in Kissing an Heir" (At the Kingsborough Ball #2) by Sophie Barnes

Genre: Historical Romance
It was not as good as the third book in the series, but it was better than the first one. I enjoyed it, but it's not a fave.

"The King's Curse" (The Cousins' War #6) by Philippa Gregory

Genre: Historical Fiction
Not my favorite book in the series, but a nice end to it. I really enjoyed it very much and I found the main character to be very believable and likeable.

"Brother Grimm" (Jan Fabel #2) by Craig Russell

Genre: Mystery
I started this series just because of this book and I was not disappointed. A really good mystery novel with some unexpected twists.

"Let the Right One In" by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Genre: Horror
It was not much of a horror novel, but I really, really liked it. I can't wait to watch the movies.

"Blindness" (Blindness #1) by José Saramago

Genre: Science Fiction
I'm not much of a science fiction fan, because of all the terminology, but this book was really easy to read. I enjoyed it and I want to check out the second book.

"Flashforward" by Robert J. Sawyer

Genre: Science Fiction
I can't believe I liked this book as much as I did. There was not a lot action there, but it was a fast read. If you like books about time travelling, you may love this one.

"Beauty Queens" by Libba Bray

Genre: Contemporary
I was on the verge of throwing this book out of the window too many times. I felt like I was reading some kind of a parody of a book. It was annoying the hell out of me.

These are all of the books that I've read this month. Have you read any of them? Share your thoughts in the comments!


  1. I read Flashforward after the show was cancelled. I don't recall if I liked it or not as I didn't put any notes in on GoodReads. I did rate it 3 stars so it couldn't have been all bad, right?

    1. I didn't even know there was a show, but I did like the book. May be a little bit too much terminology, but it was not that bad.
