January Wrap-Up

Its time for my January Wrap-up!

I read a ridiculous amount of books this month! I had so many new ones after Christmas (and not a lot to do, unfortunately). 

Best of the Bunch in January

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

I read a crazy amount this month, but The Name of the Star really stood out. It had everything I love in a story – atmospheric setting, great characters, a compelling murder mystery, ghosts and a good old Scotland Yard vibe. Check out my review here.

Runner Up

Angelfall by Susan Ee

If you’re on Goodreads, you may have heard the buzz about this self-published novel by Susan Ee – and I can tell you it definitely lives up to the hype. I was blown away and it’s possibly the first paranormal/angel mythology YA that I have loved. This is how you write a strong heroine and a great story.

Best of the Bunch is a great end of the month originally created by Lyrical Reviews
