January 2020 Wrap Up

A bit late but here is my wrap up for January!
Firstly, some stats! I read a total of 11 books and also DNFd 1 book. 5 of the books I read were rereads. 3 of the books I read were physical/eBooks and the others were all audiobooks. I also read a total of 4,450 pages in January.
So, lets jump in!

Physical/eBook

Firstly we have Nyxia Unleashed! This is the sequel to Nyxia in The Nyxia Triad Series. I read Nyxia in 2018 and I loved it! I loved this book just as much! This is a super unique, interesting & action packed This was a 4.5 Stars for me and I can’t wait to get to book 3, Nyxia Uprising.

Next we have The End and Other Beginnings which is a short story collection by Veronica Roth. This was a bit all over the places for me. There were ones I loved & ones I hated. There however wasn’t enough good stories in there for it to really stand out, so that was disappointing. You can check out my review for ratings & thoughts on each of the individual stories.

Lastly for Physical/eBooks I read Come Tumbling Down which is book 5 in the Wayward Children Series. I am loving all these new worlds we explore with each new book in this series and I also love that they have remained short books. They make for easy and fun reads.

Audiobooks!

Firstly for audiobooks I listened to The Beast which is book 2 in The Darkdeep duology. I listened to The Darkdeep at the end of December and really enjoyed it. It’s a fun middle grade adventure novel with heaps of plot twists and action. Highly recommend if you are looking for something quick & action packed to read.

Next I reread the first two books in one of my favourite series in anticipation for the release of Book 3, The Hand on the Wall. I absolutely love Truly Devious & The Vanishing Stair. This series just keeps getting better and better with each book.

Next I listened to book 31 & 32 in the Hercule Poirot Mysteries series. I enjoyed both After the Funeral & Hickory Dickory Dock just as much as I have all the other books in the Hercule Poirot series. I absolutely love Hercule Poirot and the way Agatha Christie writes the mysteries in this series. Never predictable & always leaves you guessing.

Lastly, some more rereads in anticipation of continuing the series. It had been a few years since I originally read the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series so I decided to reread them via audiobook before I listened to A Map of Days and future books in extended series. I loved this one just as much this time as I did the first time reading them! Such a creepy and unique world and amazing bunch of characters.

DNF

The only book that I DNFd in January was The Dragon Republic which is the second book to The Poppy War. I DNFd at 285 pages, so just over half way through. I absolutely loved The Poppy War but when I tried to read this one I just found it super slow and lot was going on which wasn’t making me excited to jump back in and read it and I found myself just avoiding reading instead of pick this one up. I definitely want to read this one at some point because of how much I loved The Poppy War but I might have to give it a go on audiobook to try and get through the slow parts.


Well that is all the books I read & DNFd in January! How many books did you get the chance to read? Also, which one was your favourite? Mine would have to be Nyxia Unleashed!

October 2018 Wrap Up

Copy of Header Image (5)

So I was on a reread & Mystery kick this month!

Blog titles (1)

As I said this was a month for rereading! I have finally started rereading Harry Potter physically again! I’ve reread a tonne of times on audiobook, but not on physical for at least a year. So, of course, I’ve been loving the reread!
I also read Jackaby which I LOVED. It was such an amazing book! You can find my review HERE!
And lastly for physically read books is Children of Blood and Bone which I read because it was one of the BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds. I haven’t reviewed this one and don’t know if I will but my basic thoughts are I enjoyed it for the most part but a couple things mean I only rated it 4 stars. The main thing I did not like was the romances. I felt they were unnecessary and took away from the plot and the whole women’s empowerment & family themes.

Blog titles

Another 2 rereads! If you didn’t know I am slowly making my way through all the LOTRs world books on audio and last month I read The Two Towers.
I also reread Mask of Shadows. I originally read it on audiobook and as the sequel recently came out I planned on rereading it physically and I did start that but the physical book was just taking forever to actually read. I use the app Bookly so I can track my reading and I know my average reading speed and it was literally double for this book and it was making me not want to actually pick it up because I felt like I was getting nowhere. So instead I listened to the audiobook and flipped along with the book which helped a lot. I still really enjoy this book, it was just something about it that took forever and put me off.
Then as I said above I was on a mystery kick, mainly Hercule Poirot mysteries! I love Poirot and listened to these 3 in about 4 days. I would have listened to more but the delightful Scribd will remove all your saved books and put them in ‘Available Soon’ if they think you are listening to too many audiobooks. I do have a possible hack for this that I will be testing out once they all become available. So I will keep you updated as to whether that actually works in November.

And between BookTubeAThon & Magical ReadAThon, that is most of the books I plan to read in August. But I still wanted to do my usual Wrap Up, TBR, Haul & Anticipated Releases on my blog.

Blog titles (1)

Legendary I am actually reading atm. This Mortal Coil & King of Ashes I have had to put down because of ReadAThons. Bygone Badass Broads I am slowly making my way through as it is a heap of small stories.
