January 2017 Monthly Wrap Up + I’m back

This month started out really well, I read a lot and posted 3-4 posts to my blog every week. I also participated in the Biannual Bibliothon Winter 2017 Readathon, and had a lot of fun with that. Halfway through the month I started not feeling well. I didn’t have the energy to post anything on my blog or read books, so I had to take a break from everything book and blog related. This is slowly getting better now and I hope I’m back 100% soon. This blog hiatus totally killed my posting plan so I’ll be posting topics in February that should have been out earlier, like: Favorite Reads of 2016, Dystopian Bingo and Reviews.

Over to what I did manage to read in January. I read a total of 4 books, one essay and one book that i DNF. I have read 3 books that fits the Beat The Backlist Challenge.

I read a total of 1621 pages this month.

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This essay is such a great introduction to feminism and it is very easy and quick to read. I recommend everyone to read it. 5 stars

Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Book 1 in Stalking Jack the Ripper

I love the premise of this book and I had high hopes for it. The story started out really good and exciting, but after a while it got a bit boring. This book was just ok, not great and not terrible either. You can read more of my thoughts about it in my Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up HERE. 3 stars

Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven

This is now one of my all time favorite Young Adult Contemporaries. I devoured this book, it was so incredible good. I LOVE the character Libby, she is AMAZING! I really connected with her. Jack’s face blindness was interesting to read about as well. I really want to read the author’s other book asap. 4.5 stars

Sense And Sensibility by Jane Austen

This is my second try to read a Jane Austen book. I DNF this book at 30%. I found the book to be really boring, it just didn’t grab me. I want to like it because it is a well known classic, but I just don’t find it fun to read.  1.5 stars

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I love Marissa Meyers other series The Lunar Chronicles, so I highly anticipated this book. This book is a fun read, I really love the Alice in wonderland world and some parts of the story. I also really love her writing. I just didn’t cared for the romance. If you like ya romance book with fantasy elements, and you are interested in another story set in the Alice world I highly recommend this book. 4 stars
