I can't believe January is over already! I'm very happy with my reading in January. I read 7 books and I started the year off with reading a book that I'm sure will make it into my favourites list for this year.
Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle - 5/5 STARS
I loved this book! The writing, characters and story were all fantastic. Spellbook of the Lost and Found is centred on a mysterious spellbook and how it affects the large cast of characters within this book. I would really recommend reading this book and I'll be posting my full review of it here in the next few days.
Giant Days vol 2 by John Allison and Lissa Treiman - 3/5 STARS
I like the characters and the artwork of this series but I felt this volume wasn't as strong or exciting as the first volume.
Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer book 1) by Laini Taylor - 4/5 STARS
I liked this book and I liked how interesting and unique the story was. The storytelling felt so rich and vivid.
Dreamin' Sun vol 1 by Ichigo Takano - 4/5 STARS
I enjoyed this manga volume and I thought it was a nice, fun read.
Dreamin' Sun vol 2 by Ichigo Takano - 3/5 STARS
I didn't enjoy this volume as much as the first because I felt most of the volume was about the main character pining after one of the guys in the series. I expected there to be a bit more to the story than that.
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James - 2/5 STARS
The premise of this book was really interesting and the second half of the book was thrilling to read but during the book and even after finishing the book I found it hard to see the motivations behind everything that went on. I felt there was no reason for most of what happened and therefore I didn't feel as connected to the book.
Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson book 9) by Patricia Briggs - 4/5 STARS
I haven't read a Mercy book in so long and it felt great to be sucked right back into the world. I enjoyed this book and it had all the excitement and adventure a Mercy Thompson book usually has.
