Monthly Wrap Up

-| January & February Wrap Up |-

Guess who’s back, it’s been a while so I thought I would share with you the books I’ve been reading since the start of the year. I’ve had some amazing reads, not a single book lower than 4 stars. I hope you enjoy the ride…


Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

I absolutely loved this audiobook, it’s not my usual genre however I do work in a chemistry lab and everyone was raving about it so I thought I would give it a go and I’m so happy I did. I cried and laughed during this, neither of which I do very often.

Genesis (Robert Hunter #12) by Chris Carter

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will know that this is one of my favourite series. I love the cases that we follow with Hunter & Garcia. They are definitely not for the faint hearted but if you think you can handle it then I would absolutely recommend it.

Fire at Her Fingertips by Rebecca Crunden

I absolutely love Rebecca’s work (which reminds me I’m over halfway through The Outlands Pentalogy I definitely need to continue) this is less than 20 pages but it packs a serious punch. As soon as I finished Fire at Her Fingertips I wanted to start again as I felt like I didn’t cherish the words enough.

The Audacity by Katherine Ryan

I don’t often read autobiographies, however I had to make an exception as I find Katherine Ryan hilarious and she was narrating her own audiobook. I had a lot of fun listening to this, there’s not a lot that I can say about someone else’s life to be honest.

First Degree Murder by MJ Weatherall

I devoured this book in one day, it’s not very long but the writing and the structure make this story so addictive that I just couldn’t put it down. It came at the perfect time as well because I was desperately craving a murder mystery so I ate this up. You can catch my stop on the blog tour here.

Run Time by Catherine Ryan Howard

I’ve loved every book I’ve read so far from this author, each is unique and addictive. Reading parts of a movie script was a cool concept. This was a story within a story within a book and my heart actually stopped when I got to the reveal. I already can’t wait for the next release.


Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Growing up I loved reading the Harry Potter books however I never read past The Goblet of Fire as by the time this was released I’d moved on to different books. My 6 year old son has just discovered the movies so I wanted to carry on reading the series. I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding the author which I won’t get into but I already have all the series on my shelves and I just wanted to go back to my childhood.

The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels by Janice Hallett

I couldn’t wait for this book I was counting down to it’s release and managed to grab a Waterstones copy which was signed and included bonus content for my birthday. It definitely didn’t disappoint, I’m obsessed with the structure and the story being told through so much mixed media. Add that to the fact that it’s about a cult and this is a perfect book for me. I need the next release asap!

Lore Olympus Vol. 1 & 2 by Rachel Smythe

I’ve seen this series doing the rounds on blogs and booktube and was drawn in by the beautiful art. I don’t have much knowledge of Greek Mythology but I’ve the series so far. Yes it is dark with trigger warnings but I just can’t get enough, I have the 3rd volume however I’m too nervous to read it as I devour them so fast and then I have to wait months for volume 4.

The Mirror Man (Joona Linna #8) by Lars Kepler

I’m so happy I finally finished this book, Joona Linna is my favourite Nordic Noir series. Pretty similar to the Robert Hunter series further up, this is extremely gruesome and not for the faint hearted. However the plots are addictive and thrilling. I have to say this twist was fantastic and I didn’t even come close to guessing it.

The Silence Project by Carole Hailey

Now this is not in my usual reading genres, I would say it’s definitely more general fiction than dystopian however I couldn’t stop listening to it. The Silence Project had me hooked, the themes discussed made me stop and think for a while. Seeing the organization/cult created from the eyes of the daughter was fascinating. I will be reading from this author again.

What have been your favourite reads so far this year?

See you in the next one…
