Favourite of the Month:
My favourite book of the month was Stacy Schiff’s incredible biography of Cleopatra. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed every minute of it, while learning a whole lot of things I did not know and improving my knowledge of things I did know.

January was tough, work wise. I had a ridiculous amount of stuff to do – and I did not feel like reading anything that challenged me in my free time. What also suffered from my month of hell was blogging in general – I have neither written very many blog posts nor have I read very many of other people’s (which is something I am truly sorry for but which cannot be helped at the moment. I really am drowning in work.).
Books I read in January:
- The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy #3) by Katherine Arden: 5 out of 5 stars (Review)
- Visions of Heat (Psy-Changeling #2) by Nalini Singh: 2 out of 5 stars
- Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changeling #3) by Nalini Singh: 3,5 out of 5 stars
- Mine to Possess (Psy-Changeling #4) by Nalini Singh: 3 out of 5 stars

Favourite of the Month:
The Winter of the Witch was an absolutely stunning conclusion to a series I have loved immensely. I cannot wait to read everything Katherine Arden comes up with next.
I also really enjoyed binge-reading the a large chunk of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series. There is something about her writing and her world-building that I particularly enjoy. The whole is also better than the sum of its parts and I don’t see myself stopping reading this series anytime soon.

If you follow me on Twitter you know that I am currently having a bit of a PhD melt-down. I have calmed down a bit and made around a million to do lists and now feel like I can actually write a blog post. I am ridiculously stressed about my thesis and whenever I am that way, I escape into reading (mostly predictable books that don’t stress me out further) – which is why I read the first seven books in the Psy-Changeling since the beginning of the year and have not been writing reviews for any. In general, blogging will probably be something I will have to scale back on because I want to finish my PhD this year and I won’t have the mental capacities to write about all the books I read for fun.
