Monthly Wrap Ups

January Wrap Up!

Hi everyone!

The first month of 2018 is over and I’ve kicked off the year with quite a few amazing reads! I feel like this month has gone on FOREVER and now I’m back at university for my final semester I know I’m going to wish January was even longer! Let’s see what I got to read this month!

ARC Reads:

Title: I Am Thunder by Muhammad Khan

Rating: ★★★★

Review: This was definitely a standout book for the year already. It was eye opening, honest and so raw at times. I loved how genuine the characters were and the passion you could feel in the writing! I’ll have a review up soon!

Title: The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One by Amanda Lovelace

Rating: ★★★★★

ReviewI loved Amanda’s first book, The Princess Saves Herself in This One, so when I saw this was on NetGalley I requested it ASAP and it was just as beautiful as I thought. Her poems are so powerful and so real, it’s amazing. Review up soon!

Title: The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

Rating: ★★★.5

Review: This is one of the books I received I got from the New Voices 2018 – Manchester Event! and I couldn’t wait to read it! It was so interesting, and had such a Black Mirror-esque feel to it, I am such a fan of Nick and his book! My review can be found here: The Feed by Nick Clark Windo // ARC Review
