January wrap up | 2016

Honeycomb

Hello book lovers! Today is the 31th of January which means…it’s time for a wrap up! I am so happy to do my first wrap up. This month, there was a lot of things that happened. I created my blog in the beginning of January and I thought that nobody would know it exists. Thank you to everyone who reads and follows my post. It really means a lot to me.

Ok so back to the books!! I had a very good month; I read seven books in total and I am currently reading three books right now that I plan to finish this week. I plan on reading more books on February because I finished all my projects so I will have more free time.

  1. The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman. It was a very entertaining book that I really enjoyed and I gave it 3.5 stars. I personally didn’t like the characters, but the story was so full of magic.
  2. Falling kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes. This book so amazing!! It’s actually one of my favorites and I can’t wait to read the second book. But unfortunately, there isn’t a copy at the library or at the bookstore so I have to wait until there is more. I gave it 4.5 stars. I highly recommend it if you didn’t read it yet. My review: Review: “Falling Kingdoms” by Morgan Rhodes.
  3. La nuit des temps by René Barjavel. I rated it 3 stars. I personally didn’t like the story in general, but there was a specific love story that was so good!!! I read it in French because it was for French class. I don’t usually read in French because I read a lot slower. Here are my thoughts on the book: My feelings towards “The Ice People” by René Barjavel
  4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Ok so this book is my favorite of this month. It contained everything I loved in a book; action, badass characters that I love, some sexy romance that makes me asking for more. I regret not reading it earlier seriously!! I gave it 4.5 stars because there was only one thing that bothered me and it’s that we don’t know that much about Celaena’s early life. I hope that everything is explained in the second book! Here is my review on Throne of Glass: Review: “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J. Mass.81PUjYDq2yL
  5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I wanted to read this book for a long time now and I finally did this month. It was so unique that I couldn’t resist falling in love with the story and the characters. I gave it 4 stars because it was very predictable. Here is my review on Cinder: Review on ‘Cinder’ by Marissa Meyer. Can’t wait to read the second one.Cinder_book_cover
  6. Through the zombie glass by Gena Showalter. This book series was recommended to me from my friend. It was very good at first, but as the story went, the story became heavier and I just couldn’t love it anymore. I gave it 3.5 stars because the concept was very original. My full review: Review: “Through the Zombie Glass” by Gena Showalterimg_4076
  7. Walking disaster by Jamie McGuire. I am a big fan of Beautiful disaster so how could I not read this one? Walking disaster is the same story as Beautiful disaster except that this one is from Travis’ perspective. I have to admit that this book disappointed me because it kind of lost a little bit of magic. I gave it a 3.5 stars. Here is my full review: Review: “Walking disaster” by Jamie McGuire2bcd7-walking-disaster1

  1. I read Falling Kingdoms and Throne of Glass this month too! They were both so good! I literally stayed up last night to finish Throne of Glass so that I could officially say that I read 5 books in January. Lol, but it was so good! That fight seen at the end had me on the edge of my seat gripping the book. Oh it was so good! 😀
