Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s time for my first #RockMyTBR update of 2017. It’s been an….interesting first month of the year, lots of good stuff but also quite a bit of stressful stuff too, but that’s life I suppose! Anyway, as you’ll know if you’ve been following my blog for a while, the #RockMyTBR challenge is a reading challenge run by Sarah K over at The Book Traveller, where she challenges you to cut down on your TBR through the year. I took part in this challenge last year and am excited to see if I can complete it again this year. As with last year, my aim is to read at least one book a month from the list. The first month has gone pretty well, I read the book I wanted to read from the list as well as two others. This is what I read this month:
A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro:
This was my #RockMyTBR book for January. I started this on the 2nd January and finished it on the 13th. This wasn’t a bad book, but it’s not my favourite mystery I’ve ever read, the characters and plot just fell a little flat for me. It was however interesting enough that I’d like to read the second one, which is hope is better. Here is my review of it:
Every Breath by Ellie Marney:
This was my second book of January which I read from 14th-31st January. It had a decent mystery, a shippable romance and realistic characters and families, so despite it being slow, I still really enjoyed it! Here is my review of it:
Caraval by Stephanie Garber:
This was my Netgalley read for this month, I read it from 2nd January-3rd February. It was so good, beautiful writing, vivid worldbuilding, great characters and lots of twists and turns made for a very gripping read!
So that’s what I’ve read in January, this is what I’ve got coming up in February:
The Crown’s Game-Evelyn Skye-This is my #RockMyTBR read for February. I started it a few days ago and it’s pretty good so far, though I haven’t got fully into it yet.
Traitor To The Throne-Alwyn Hamilton-My Netgalley read for the month. This has been on the back burner for a bit whilst I finished Caraval, but hopefully I’ll manage to finish it this month.
The Invisible Library-Genevieve Cogman-I bought this with a gift card that I got for Christmas, so I’m excited to get to it because it sounds really good.
A Conjuring of Light-VE Schwab-I won’t finish it this month as it only comes out at the end of February, but I will definitely be starting it as soon as it comes out because it is one of my most anticipated releases of 2017!
I’ve started this year of reading pretty well I think, so I’m hoping that this trend continues and the rest of my 2017 reading goes as well. How are you all doing with your 2017 reading goals so far? Let me know!
