January Wrap Up

These are the books I read in January. Since I had exams this month, I'm quite happy I managed to read these! They all count as backlist books for the Beat the Backlist Challenge!

1. Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle, #2) by Jay Kristoff

This was a fantastic start to my reading year! Definitely going to be one of favourites this year! It was incredible! Can't wait to read the third book! 5 stars!!!

2. Vicious (Villains, #1) by V.E. Schwab

Enjoyed this one but I felt it was too short! Definitely looking forward to read the sequel! 4 stars!
3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Cute read, but as I am not a huge contemporary reader I gave it 3 stars! By all means that is a good rating from me in this genre! I did not like the fanfiction fragments and I wish it did not have such an open ending (like I want to know how she did with her story!)

4. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline 

I wish I could have had the time to read this in one sitting but alas, exams were the priority.
Really enjoyed this! Loved the 80s references and I'm glad I finally read this! 4 stars! The only thing I disliked about this book was the super tiny font! 

5. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

This was a creepy read to end the month with! Really enjoyed it, though! 5 stars!

  1. I'm curious about Ready Player One but I might end up seeing the film before I read the book.

    1. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked Ready Player One, I'm really glad I read the book before the movie comes out! Looking forward to seeing it!

  2. I’ve read all of those books except Godsgrave. I’m really looking forward to the Vicious sequel. Have a good February!
