How is this the last day of January?! I just feel like time is going so fast, it’s insane.

But, with the end of the month, comes my monthly wrap-up! I’m so happy with my reading this month. I managed to sneak in a lot of reading, even though this month has been relatively busy. Between school, supply teaching and life in general, I think I did pretty good this month!

Let’s take a look at the books I read this month!

The Wicked King by Holly Black - The Contented Reader

Forget You by Jennifer Echols // ★★★★★ // I really enjoyed this book. I read it for the first time a few years ago, so I was curious to see if I enjoyed it as much the second time around! I’m happy to say I did! You can check out my review, here!

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black // ★★★★☆ // I didn’t love The Cruel Prince, so I was hoping I liked this one more. I’m so glad I did. Holly Black sure does know how to write a cliffhanger ending! I want the next book now! You can check out my review, here!

Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry - The Contented Reader
The Light Over London by Julia Kelly - The Contented Reader

Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry // ★★★☆☆ // This was my second Katie McGarry book and I did enjoy it. It’s a bit of a darker contemporary than anything I’ve read before, but it was an overall good reading experience. You can check out my review, here!

The Light Over London by Julia Kelly // ★★★★★ // I LOVED this book! From the minute I started reading this book, it totally sucked me in. It’s one I definitely will continue to recommend. You can check out my review, here!

By Your Side by Kasie West - The Contented Reader
Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers - The Contented Reader

By Your Side by Kasie West // ★★★★★ // One of my goals this year is to read more of Kasie West’s books. I just love her writing. They’re perfect fluffy reads, and this one is no exception. I also love the representation of anxiety in this one.

Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers // ★★★☆☆ // I read this one for a blog tour with Raincoast books. While I didn’t love it, I still enjoyed it. I think if I read the previous trilogy, maybe my thoughts would be a bit different. You can check out my review and Q&A with Robin, here!

The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe - The Contented Reader
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas - The Contented Reader

The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe // ★★★☆☆ // This is a really solid debut book. It’s incredibly funny and is one I can definitely relate to. It shows you that sometimes you need to let go of your inner thoughts and just enjoy the ride that is life!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas // ★★★★★ // Even though I have other books to read, I was in the mood to re-read ACOTAR. I’m so glad I did. I just totally fell back in love with this series. I’m already in the middle of ACOMAF (aka the best book ever) and am happy with my decision to do some mood reading!
