November Wrap Up

This month has been quite a slow reading one. I have managed to finish three books, one of which I started at the end of October.

The books I read in November were:

  • Little Sister by Isabel Ashdown
  • Midnight Crossroad (Midnight, Texas, #1) by Charlaine Harris
  • IQ by Joe Ide

I received all three books from the Trapeze Books Publishing Company in exchange for honest reviews. I have received two other books as well from Trapeze which I am hoping to finish in December, however I will be taking part in a Christmas Bookathon starting from tomorrow as it’ll OFFICIALLY BE DECEMBER!! I have no idea where the time has gone this past year!

My favourite book out of the three that I read this month, was:

 

Little Sister by Isabel Ashdown

I gave this book five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – This book gave me shivers all over. It’s quite a dark, disturbing psychological thriller which I thoroughly enjoyed. I don’t want to give too much away as it’s one of those gripping stories full of twists and tense moments that you should really get your hands dirty in without knowing a lot from other reads spoiler reviews. The narrative of this book is filled with flashbacks of the past which unravels a lot between the two sisters and why there is so much tension and trust issues. I’m glad I took my time to read through this beautifully written book. There was one particular character which I couldn’t stand throughout the entirety of this book and was hoping that the character would get given the punishment they deserved.

How many books did you manage to read in November? Are you participating in a Christmas Bookathon in December? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy reading,

Claire☺️

January Wrap Up

I’m really happy that I’ve managed to kick this year off with reading a couple of books in January. I didn’t think this month would be as hectic but January, you surprised me and ended up being rather busy!

This month I have read two books and started a third (which I finished yesterday, so close to keeping it within the month of January but not close enough!)

These were:

  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
  • Cress by Marissa Meyer
  • Winter by Marissa Meyer (such a huuuuuuge book!)

As you can see I kept to the Lunar Chronicles series throughout January, so it was full of fantasy goodness! I loved this series so damn FRICKIN’ much! I really can’t fault Marissa Meyer at all, especially with Winter. That book was adventurous, thrilling and jam packed with lots of events! (I shall be doing a book review on Winter shortly).

I have already started my next book which I received through Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review, called Relativity by Antonia Hayes. I’ve read just under 100 pages so far today and WOW! Hayes’ writing is breathtakingly beautiful, I’m finding it quite difficult to put this book down unless I really have to.

Speak soon,

Claire
