Here is a very late (well, to me it’s late) wrap up of the books I’ve read in the month of January. A total of 11, which I’m pretty pleased with but I think the spirit of the new year kind of fueled that and I don’t think it will be as high as that for the rest of the year :’). And also a partial TBR of the books I want to read in February. The ones listed are all the Netgalley books (not including God Smites) I need to read.
- The Good Immigrant | ★★★★★ | An excellent book which contained a lot of insight into the lives of immigrants originating from many different countries.
- Half Bad | ★★★☆☆ | Interesting storytelling. Sort of annoyed that the paperback has no synopsis. Likely hit-or-miss read. I’m leaning towards hit, very interested in the sequel.
- The Inquisition | ★★★★☆ | A cliffhanger that killed me. (Damn you, Taran!)
- The Selection | ★★☆☆☆ | Trying to catch up on the older popular YA novels that I never read.
- The Elite | ★★★☆☆ | Enjoyed this much more than Book one. But still not a huge fan of the series.
- The One | ★☆☆☆☆ | So, so disappointed with this series. Don’t plan on finishing the series. (Spoiler: I’m so confused as to why America and Maxon keep the Selection?)
- Asking for it | ★★★★☆ | Had a very open ending which I really liked.
- Homegoing | ★★★★☆ | A wonderful and powerful debut that explores how slavery impacted generations of a family
- The Keys | ★★★★☆ | Literally the novel version of DJ Khaled’s snapchats.
- Shadow Cabinet | ★★★☆☆ | I still think this series would’ve worked as a standalone with The Name of the Star but the premise was intriguing.
- Theodore Boone: The Fugitive | ★★★☆☆ | I was obsessed with the first few books when I was 11 but now I’m older, it’s enjoyable but I wasn’t excited as I was when I was younger.
Wayfarer | Sleeping Gods| The Blazing Star | God Smites and other Muslim girl problems | Dreadnought | Fate’s Fables | You’re Welcome, Universe | A Tragic Kind of Wonderful
