Reading Round-Up: January

Hello Loves!

Well, I wasn’t expecting to be so absent for the month of January. I’m really sorry. Since I’ve been back at work, it’s felt like one thing after another. My head feels full of fog. I’ve been reading but I’ve not been writing much at all. Hopefully, with the half term holiday in sight, I might start to feel a bit better.

I wanted to spend the last day of January with my round up for this month. 2023 promises to be an amazing year of books, let’s face it. I really can’t wait to get down my pile, read some new titles and branch out more. I need to get back on here more too!

Anyway in January I managed to read 11 books. Considering I went back to work straight after New Year, I am quite pleased with my progress there. There’s always room for improvement and my poor little blog needs some attention but I’m okay with it. Let’s check out the shelves!

I’ve not reviewed anything so it’s been quite tricky to decide however, I think I’m there!

  1. That Green Eyed Girl – Julie Owen Moylan. Oh gosh, I loved this one so much. Really gritty and compelling characters with a well thought out plot. What’s not to love?!
  2. The Ink Black Heart – Robert Galbraith. I absolutely love the Galbraith series. They’re just so incredible. This one even included dialogue from chat rooms which was a new reading experience for me. As always with Galbraith, I couldn’t work it out. I wasn’t even close.
  3. The Accidental Medium – Tracy Whitwell. I really find mediums incredibly interesting so this book appealed from the cover alone. However, I really enjoyed reading it! It’s an easy read with some likeable characters who try to use their skill for good. It’s what I’d call a weekend read.

There’s an elephant in the room (so to speak) with Spare. I wanted to read it so I could be fully equipped rather than just see the media interpretation of events. I feel more informed which does help. I do have an issue with the media representation of events. However, I have nothing but respect for our Royal Family. It’s definitely a controversial book, that’s for sure.

I’ll see you at the weekend where I’ve got to review the book I chose for my reading challenge. See you then darlings!

Big love all xxxx

  1. Thank you for sharing!!.. sometimes we need to briefly stop the world, get off for a bit and reboot… 🙂

    Hope life is all that you wish for it to be and until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.

  2. Hi Books and Bakes! Great Reading Roundup! I haven’t read Spare yet, but I’m on the hold list at the library. I’m #303, about 16 more weeks. My SIL is reading it right now. Happy reading to you 🙂
