Today I am going to tell you about the books I read in January, this month I read 7 books and DNF’ed one book.
Let’s start with the book I DNF.
The Priory of the Orange Tree
This book just was not for me. I really couldn’t get into the story at all. I did enjoy the chapters with Tané, but when the story carried on and moved away from her chapters I just wasn’t interested in anything that was happening.
I really wanted to like this book, this is the second time I have tried to read this book, I did manage to get a bit further in the book this time, unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be.
The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason
This is the first book in the Gardella Vampire Hunter series. I really enjoyed this book, this one is a re-read for me and I still enjoyed it this time around as I did the first time I read it. I gave this book 4 stars, You can read my full review here.
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
This is the first book of short stories in The Witcher series. I started this immediately after finishing the Netflix series, which I highly recommend. I also highly recommend this book. I can’t wait to carry on reading more about The Witcher. I gave this book 5 stars, You can read my full review here.
Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason
This is the 2nd book in the Gardella Vampire Hunter series. I enjoyed this book and it certainly through some surprises my way as I was reading it. I really want to carry on with the rest of the series throughout 2020. I gave this book 4 stars and you can read my full review here.
In The Dark by Loreth Anne White
This was a surprising book for me, I had heard nothing about it but I saw it on amazon and decided to get it for my kindle. I am going to have a look at other books this author may have written. I gave this book 5 stars, you can read my full review here.
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
This is the 2nd book in The Mistborn Trilogy. I love this series and even though this book is a little more political I enjoyed reading it. Brandon Sanderson is one of my favourite authors. I am hopefully going to get to Hero of Ages sometime in the next couple of months. I gave this book 5 stars and you can read my full review here.
Girl Most Likely by Max Allan Collins
This was a really good book which had such a good relationship between father and daughter. I thought the mystery was a good element in the book. There are a few trigger warnings for the thought of suicide, but I really enjoyed this book due to the two main characters relationships. I gave this book 4 stars, you can read my full review here.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
The final book I read was Shadow and Bone which I finished the day this post is going up. I am going to try and have the review up in the next week. I really enjoyed the friendships in this book between Alina and Mal. This is my first time reading this series and I can not wait to carry on. I gave this book 4 stars.
