Monthly Wrap Up || January 2019

Sooooo…January 2019 is already over??? What??? Where is the year going??? Already time has passed and I’ve given up on my New Years Resolutions whaatttttt anywaysss



1. Grace and Fury: 4 stars | I enjoyed this feminist tale of sisters!
2. Six of Crows (reread): 5 stars | This book was amazing the first time and even better the second.
3. The Forest Queen: 3 stars | This gender bent robin hood was a cool premise but unfortunately poorly executed.
4. Crime and Punishment: 3 stars | Technically I started this in 2018 but I finished it this year and it was a monster.


5. The Wicked Deep: 4.5 stars | I loved this creepy paranormal story way too much for my own good.
6. Caraval: 4 stars | This was such a wild ride, especially the ending, and I can’t wait to read the sequel!
7. Always and Forever, Lara Jean (reread): 5 stars | Ahh I love Lara Jean so much and I love this series it is perfection.
8. East: 3 stars | This was also a really cool concept with the East of the Sun, West of the Moon retelling, but poorly written.


9. Waiting for Godot: 3 stars | All I have to say is that this was really absurd.
10. Small Town Hearts: 4.5 stars | This summer contemporary had so much food it was adorable and cute and perfect.
11. The Brightsiders: 3.5 stars | I didn’t love the story itself so much but the diversity in this book is simply incredible!
12. Shadow and Bone: 4 stars | I was so excited to read the original Grisha trilogy after loving SoC so much and it’s great ahh!

  • I started my second semester of the school year this month! I’m taking it a lot more easy than I was last semester, and have more time for blogging now as a result, so that’s lovely!
  • I’ve been totally obsessed with Ariana Grande like the rest of the world haha! I love love breathin, thank u next, and 7 rings. I’ve basically had her on repeat all month!

  1. If you love the Nordic legend East of the Sun, West of the Moon and was disappointed with West can I suggest Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George? It’s basically a straight expansion and retelling of the original tale and it’s one of my favorites. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read and re-read it! The author actually studied Scandinavian mythology at University and had a passion for Norway and the tale and it’s evident in every line. 🙂

  2. Grace and Fury has been on my radar but I just haven’t gotten to it ah. Definitely want to read The Wicked Deep sometime soon! Hope you have a great February Kay!

  3. Sameeee—I’m also failing at most of my 2019 goals 😂
    Also, glad to hear that you’re enjoying the Grisha trilogy so far! I just reread it and adored it. ❤
    Omg East, what a throwback. I probably read that like 7 years, lol. Dang, that's a bummer that you found it mediocre. Any recs on good East of the Sun, West of the Moon retellings?

    And I read 5 books in January, so I'm doing well for me (lol the ONE goal I'm still on top of; my goal is to read 50 books this year). Tho one of those reads was a novella and another was a graphic novel, so I haven't read a lot of pages, whoops. 😅

      1. True true— better a few days than no days!
        And dang, we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled then. I think I might have read one other retelling around the same time as East, but I can’t remember how it compared. Probs around the same quality. :/
        And thanks! 🙂


  4. I’m so glad you loved The Wicked Deep and Caraval, I love them both so much! And thank you so much for sharing my post, that’s so sweet of you ❤️
