I’m not going to lie, January was tough! I always find this to be a difficult time of year, and work being horribly busy hasn’t helped at all! But, it’s over now, and hopefully February will be a better month as things calm down a little, and as the days get a little longer!
January is at least a good month for hiding indoors curled up with a good book, and I have manged to get plenty of reading and blogging done! I reviewed ten books in January, of which the standouts were:
- The Closer I Get by Paul Burston
- The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
- Truth Hurts by Rebecca Reid
I also reviewed:
- Mistletoe by Alison Littlewood
- The Unforgetting by Rose Black
- Amnesty by Aravind Adiga
- Temeraire by Naomi Novik
- Pine by Francine Toon
- The Complex by Michael Walters
- The End of Time by Gavin Extence
In addition to the reviews posted, I also did an end of year summary post looking back at my blogging in 2019, and I highlighted some of the titles that I’m most looking forward to reading in 2020. I also set myself a challenge to read three fantasy series this year, and while it’s going ok so far, time will tell if this indeed as foolish as I think it might be!
My TBR has reduced slightly for this month, but only by two! It’s still a reduction, and I did manage to read six of my backlist titles in January, so I’m quite happy with that 😀
