Wrap Up January 2020 or Let’s see if I manage to actually write wrap-up posts consistently this year

My january was both the longest month ever and the shortest. I am apparently back at reading a mix of genres, which is nice – but I also did not read a lot.

Books I read in January:

  1. Headliners (London Celebrities #5) by Lucy Parker: 4 out of 5 stars (review) ARC
  2. Polaris Rising (Consortium Rebellion #1) by Jessie Mihalik: 3 out of 5 stars
  3. The Two Kinds of Decay by Sarah Manguso: 4 out of 5 stars (review)
  4. Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo: 4.5 out of 5 stars (review)
  5. Dragon Bound (The Elder Races #1) by Thea Harrison: 3.5 out of 5 stars
  6. The Last Smile of Sunder City (Fetch Philipps #1) by Luke Arnold: 3 out of 5 stars (review)

Favourite of the Month:

Girl, Woman, Other for sure. I just loved that book for everything it did.

Stats(ish):

I finished six books with 1700 pages altogether. Of these six books, five were written by women and one by a man (which was my least favourite of the month, make of that what you want). Five books were fiction, one was non-fiction. Three books were romance novels of some kind (one contemporary, one paranormal, one science ficiton).

Currently Reading:

I am in the middle of six books – and two books behind on my reading challenge. This bodes well for the year.

Books I should get to soon:

I already chose my next audiobook (The Man Who Saw Everything) but except for that I am letting my reading go wherever it wants.

  1. I’m super excited to pick up The Illness Season, although I have no idea when I’ll be able to. What are your thoughts on it so far? Also, a great reading month ahead of you!! Say Nothing & In The Dream House were 2 of my favorites last year!!

    1. I am sadly not really loving The Illness Season. It’s not weird enough for me, I think.
      Say Nothing is INCREDIBLE! It haunts me. I am around 2 hours from the end and I am SO impressed!

  2. Yay for Girl Woman Other! 🙂
    I just finished Follow Me to Ground and adored the visceral writing and atmosphere of it. And I read The Man Who Saw Everything this month and really enjoyed it, so I hope you’ll like that one as well!

    1. Girl Woman Other is just SO GOOD. I will be very unhappy if it doesn’t make the WP longlist.
      Follow Me to Ground really worked for me as well – even if it was a bit creepier than I usually read.

    1. Thank you! But my layout has been the same for a few years. I am just not a very visual person and decided to go for something simple that I can just keep that way indefinately.
      I am not super fair into The Wolf of Oren-Yaro – I think I will enjoy it once I am a bit further in but somehow I am currently not really feeling like it. (I also haven’t finished a book in a while)
