Welcome to our Book Review January 2019. It’s the first Book Review post of 2019! Cheers to that! How many of you guys are doing the PopSugar Reading Challenge? I am progressing through it slowly and having to do a bunch of research. Some of the challenges are really hard. 🙂 Now if you’re following me on Goodreads you can keep up with what I am reading or if you follow my Instagram, I will post on there as well.

Book Review January 2019
Check me out on Goodreads.
I love books about angels, I do. This book kept me wanting to find out answers to my questions, but by the end, it totally fell flat. I was asking myself, “What was the point of all of this?” I couldn’t believe how empty I found the entire story and that it took me the whole book to realize it. Sorry, not sorry.
Short Review: No real story here guys.
As you all know I read Angelfall in December. I followed that up with both the second book, End of Days and the conclusion to the series, World After. Both of these had me enthralled as the story progressed. My only dispute would be that I found it very hard to picture my hard-worn angel living life with Penryn in the world after the epic battles and such settled. I don’t know, kind of makes me wish for a slightly different ending but hey, the journey was exciting. Now he’ll settle down and become a farmer I guess. Gee, how fun.
Short Review: In love with an angel now <3
Okay, I’m not going to say I loved this book but some of it was enjoyable. I don’t know too many Mother Goose stories which is what this book is based on. Basically, it’s a dark twist on the classic tales. If you are more familiar with Mother Goose, read this. If not, try it. It’s a great book to flip back and forth to too since it’s multiple short stories.
Short Review: Mystical and unique
Unfathomable, I still feel floored at what happened in this book. When I first read The Cruel Prince, I wasn’t sure I’d continue the series but I am so glad I am! I loved the second book and can’t wait for the next one (hurry up 2020). The ending of this book will shock you. I just can’t even discuss it though without giving something away. Just read it.
Short Review: EPIC!
I read the whole trilogy this month starting with Wither (not pictured). It started out really good with a very interesting post-apocalyptic vibe going on. On to book two it started to dwindle and by book three I was really struggling to hang in there. This author has a sort of habit of doing that. I read her Internment Chronicles series and it was a similar way. The concept and the beginning were great, but by the middle and end, it felt totally lifeless.
Short Review: Disappointing.
Leigh Bardugo is an amazing writer, she and her creation of Grishaverse are a treat to read. After finishing the Shadow and Bone trilogy a while back, I was super excited for her spinoff, King of Scars, which came out earlier this week (currently in route to my front door). I wasn’t sure why it took me so long to pick up the Six of Crows duology, but I had largely underestimated it.
While these books could be read alone, you might understand them better if you have already read the Shadow and Bone trilogy. That being said, buckle up because the ride is insane. You have a lot of characters so keep up. Each one has an in-depth personality and I love them all. I am currently on the 2nd book before heading on over to King of Scars and I truly don’t want this story to end!
Short Review: Entrancing.
