So here we are with my first wrap up of the year! I have read 11 books in the month of January with 1 book receiving the lowest rating of the month which was 3 and a half stars and 2 books being 5 star reads.
Let’s get started…
In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children #4) by Seanan McGuire
My main problem with the books in the Wayward Children series is that all of the plot is just skipped over in a throw away sentence. These books are very character driven and I absolutely loved being in the Goblin Market however I felt like I was constantly just waiting for the plot.
I posted an audiobook review here.
133 Hours by Zach Abrams
I was hooked from the first chapter, trying to put myself in Briony’s shoes, it would be terrifying not knowing what has happened to you over the last 5 days. This is a bit of a slower paced book however the breadcrumbs which are left for us to find make it very difficult to put down. You can find my review here.
Are You Watching? by Vincent Ralph
This book was so addictive that I flew through it in two sittings, I enjoyed the concept as it surrounds a teenage girl taking part in a reality show on YouTube to try and catch her mothers killer.
I took part in the blog tour for this book so you can catch my review here.
Firewatching by Russ Thomas
I’ve read lots of police procedurals and this is definitely up there in terms of the characters and leaving me wanting more. Firewatching is a fab debut and I already can’t wait for the next instalment. Catch my stop on the blog tour here.
Frostbite (Frostbite #1-6) by Joshua Williamson (Writer), Jason Shawn Alexander (Illustrator)
I picked this up from my trial of Kindle Unlimited, I was in the mood for a graphic novel and this cover really caught my eye. The story was really interesting and I enjoyed the characters. A quick and fun read.
Truth Hurts by Rebecca Reid
This book was so addictive! I thought I would just start the book by reading a couple of chapters before bed however next thing I knew I was halfway through the book!

Million Eyes by C.R. Berry
Who knew that I would love a book about time travel?! There was so much going on that I struggled putting the book down. We travel through time ourselves seeing major historical events such as the Black Death and the terror caused by Jack the Ripper. You can read my full review here.
Stasi Winter (Karin Müller #5) by David Young
This book is the 5th book in the Karin Muller series which is Nordic Noir and as you know it’s one of my favourite genres.

Hunting Evil (Robert Hunter #10) by Chris Carter
I’ve now read every published book in this series, I absolutely love the audiobooks and would definitely recommend them. I won’t be saying anymore as I do plan on writing a full review for this book.
What have been your best reads of the month?
See you in the next one…
