January Wrap-Up & February TBR

January Wrap-Up

So January was definitely not the most successful reading month for me! I got into a massive slump at the beginning of the month where I picked up and then put down about 4 books before finding anything I wanted to stick with! I ended up reading 5 full books and starting 4 others! Of the other 4 I started I have temporarily DNFed 2, and am still reading 2 of them! Here is what I read this month:

  • The Wicker King by K. Ancrum – 4 stars
  • A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa B Sheinmel – 3.75 stars
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – 5 stars
  • In An Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire – 5 stars
  • Shadowscent: The Darkest Bloom by P.M. Freestone – 4.5 stars
Most of the books aren’t at university with me, oops!

And just to let you know, the two books I have temporarily put down are:

  • Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon James (DNF at 60 pages)
  • Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye (DNF at 50 pages)

So I only managed to read 3 of the 7 books I was planning to read last month, but it isn’t too bad overall! But yes, it wasn’t very successful as I didn’t read many books and there are a lot of books I wanted to read that I couldn’t get to, but I am getting back into it a bit now!

February TBR

So for February I need to start by finishing a couple of books that I am currently reading! Those are:

  • Kick the Moon by Muhammed Khan
  • King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

I was really hoping I was going to get King of Scars finished in January but that was extremely overly ambitious considering it came out just a few days ago, so I am just focussed now on getting it finished as quickly as I can! But I can definitely report that it is amazing so far!

Other than that, this is how my TBR is shaping up for the month! Firstly I have a few ARCs I want and need to get to as they’re being released soon! Those are:

  • The City in the Middle of the Night by Charlie Jane Anders
  • Enchantée by Gita Trelease
  • The Orphanage of Gods by Helena Coggan
  • Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon James
  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
  • Proud collated by Juno Dawson
  • All The Invisible Things by Orlagh Collins
  • Internment by Samira Ahmed


So that is quite a lot in itself, I have a lot of spring releases I need to try to get on top of! But I do have a few other books I would like to get to if time allows! Those are:

  • The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith
  • A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
  • Renegades by Marissa Meyer
  • Skyward by Brandon Sanderson


I think it very unlikely that I will get to any of these, let alone all of them, but I can try so wish me a lot of luck! I am going on a few trips in February so if I use all my time on trains it could be possible… maybe! Here goes nothing anyway!
