January Wrap Up

January is finally over!!! This month felt so long. But it’s over, it’s gone and February is here. The first month of 2020 was actually a good one. I admit that some books I started them in December but still, it was a good month. And here’s all the book I read or started in January.

Half a War by Joe Abercrombie

This is the third and last book of the Shattered Sea trilogy and it was I think it was the best of the three. It broke my cold hard heart a couple of time and I do highly recommend this series


The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood

This was an ARC I received from Netgalley and I was super grateful to be approved and excited to get to it especially after reading some other reviews that raved about it. Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it and it looks like I have an unpopular opinion on it. But what can we do? Taste is subjective.


Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I had my eyes on this book for awhile and it was good. But not as good as I was expecting. As I said in my review I think it was more of a “It’s not you it’s me” kind of situation. But I do understand why so many people love this book.

This was another ARC from Netgalley. It could probably be a nice story for readers that don’t usually go for fantasy and are just here to have an easy to follow story without much happening. This is an indie book and unfortunately, it shows. I believe it needed more beta reading and more editing and if it wasn’t for the fact that I wanted to up my feedback ration I would have DNFed it.


The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien (Re-Read)

I finally managed to find so time to read this one. Is going slowly because I have other books that I prioritise but… I’m getting there. I’m hoping to finish this one before my trip to New Zealand!


This was my January warp up. I did better than I planned but 2 of those books I’ve started them at the end of December.

What about you? What did you read in January? Let me know in the comments!

    1. The first time I read the series it took me around 6 months per book hehe. But it’s worth it. I would suggest maybe combining physical copy with audiobook that would help going through it faster 😉

      1. I did think about that, but the only audiobook copies my library has are abridged / dramatised versions which aren’t really the same thing as the full book being narrated. I’ll persevere with them again at some point, I’m sure!
