It is finally the last day of January! This month has felt like it has been three months in one and I am so ready for it to be over. I've done a lot this month, been to concerts, the cinema, on a lot of walks and a whole bunch more. Here is what happened in January!
Month: January 2023
What I Read in January!
January always feels extra long in comparison to other months and this January has been no different. I've read 8 books throughout January, which is less than I expected but still excellent. So, I'm back with another post about what I've read this month. In this post you will find a bunch of mini reviews for the books I've read in January! Here they are!
TBR Books to Tackle!
My TBR never shrinks it always grows and some of the books on my TBR have been on there for a long time. So, I wanted to make a list of some books on my TBR that I would like to tackle throughout 2023. Here they are!
A Million to One – Adiba Jaigirdar
I’ve been looking forward to reading A Million to One ever since it was announced, what feels like years ago. So, I had some high expectations when I finally got the opportunity to read it. This is a high-stakes heist on the seas and was a lot of fun to read. I have to say it didn’t live up to all of my expectations but I did enjoy it.
I'm one of those people who always asks others what they are reading, watching and listening to. So, I started doing the 'Currently I'm...' posts to share my current books, TV shows and songs for other people who are as curious as I am. Here is what I am currently reading, watching and listening to.
The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith – Quote
A few days ago, I finished reading The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith and it is a truly unforgettable book. It is a story that will stick with me for a very long time. The book is full of beautiful quotes, so, I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing.
What’s On My Netgalley TBR?
I've finally got my Netgalley TBR down to just a few books which is something I never thought I'd be able to do. I've got to stop requesting books and ending up with a never-ending TBR! I started writing these posts each month to see what was on my Netgalley TBR and hold me accountable when I haven't read them on time. Here are the books on my Netgalley shelf / TBR!
The Way I Used to Be – Amber Smith
The Way I Used to Be is a truly unforgettable book that I will forever be recommending. It is an extraordinary portrayal of trauma and I don’t think a book has made me as emotional as this one in a long time. I would highly recommend this book but please ensure you check the trigger warning before going in. TW: Rape, sexual assault, substance abuse.
New Book Releases I’m Excited For – February
One of my favourite things to do it be on the look out for new books! I love adding them to my TBR and pre-ordering ones I am particularly excited about. There are a lot of new books coming out in February and I wanted to share some of them in this post. So, here re the new book releases I'm excited for in February.
Promise Boys – Nick Brooks
When a book is said to be perfect for fans of Angie Thomas and Karen M. McManus, I am of course going to want to read that book. So, when saw this and read the synopsis of Promise Boys I immediately wanted to read. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to read this book because it is absolutely incredible! It is an unputdownable YA thriller that uses multiple POVs to grip you into a shocking story.
