Happy Friday, friends! The end of the week is nearly here, the weekend is just around the corner, and there are books to be read! This week’s wrap-up is actually covering the entire month of January! Let’s get cracking!
Books I read
Artificial Condition by Martha Wells
Dark Matter by Michelle Paver
A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe by Alex White
Thornbound by Stephanie Burgis
I have read four books so far in the month of January! Ratings of these books range from about four stars to two stars. Basically, I loved everything I read except, sadly, A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe! Full reviews for all of these books are forthcoming.
Books I am currently reading
Grimm Tales for the Young and Old by Philip Pullman
The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep by H. G. Parry
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
The Unspoken Name by A. K. Larkwood
I’m currently reading four books! Why? I’m in such a reading mood and can’t stop picking up books! My audiobook read is Grimm Tales, which is a great collection of both popular and lesser known Grimm tales. The others are all physical reader — I don’t know how I’m balancing all of these to be honest.
Books I bought
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon
I picked up two books this week! Fun fact: I have a famous hatred of Dickens — I rant so much that my family makes fun of me for my Dickens hatred. However, reading The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep has made me want to *read David Copperfield*. How? Why? I’m not sure I understand myself, but I’m going to crack it open when I finish Uriah Heep!
I also had my copy of An Unkindness of Ghosts come through! I bought this with my ‘pound per book’ savings from 2019. Other than preorders, this is the last of my 2019 savings haul!
