Wrap Up: January 2020

Hello readers, how are you?

Welcome to the first wrap up of 2020! In January I managed to read 9 books, with one DNF.

As always, I will include also the books I read in Italian, with the translated title, if exist.

5 stars:

Look, 2 books with 5 stars rating! How it is even possible?

Arbrook Huxley & the star crossed lovers is another short story from The Celestial Isles series. It was so funny and delightful!

Bewitch me: I love this cover so much, even if it doesn’t suit well for the story, a funny and supernatural adventure with witches and demons.

3 stars:

Ok, also the cover of The strings of murder is beautiful, right? Every single cover of this series is amazing, unfortunately I couldn’t stand the main character.

I’ve found The book of general ignorance in the house I rent in London, and it was a light read.

I didn’t know the history of Belle Gunness, so it was interesting to read Hell’s Princess, my first book finished in 2020. It became a little boring past the middle.

2 stars:

I discovered that also manga, comics and yaoi manga (m/m) are included in my Kindle Unlimited, so now on you will see it more frequently on this blog. Tricky Prince 1 is yaoi, but was pretty plain for me.

How disappointed I was when I finished The boy, the bird & the coffin maker! I don’t know if I am too old or too cynic, but it gave nothing to me.

1 star/DNF:

See what I have done is my first DNF of the year. I’m really interested in the Lizzie Borden story, but the writing style was awful and so weird.

Please, don’t hate me, I’m not a bad person, but I don’t comprehend and don’t like the kind of story where you can’t identify if there’s really something paranormal or not. Also, the ending of The boy who could see demons was terrible.

And that’s all, have you read some amazing books in January?

Tell me in the comments!

Wrap Up: January 2019

Hello! And January is gone!

How was your reading month? I read a total of 9 books, 1 in Italian and 1 DNF. From this month I decided to change a little this meme, so I divide the books for their rating.

Almost 5 stars:

42102504

All that remains by Sue Black is definitely the best book of January, but it doesn’t win a 5 stars rating. You can read why in my review, I will post it in a couple of days, I promise.

4 Stars:

37903770

Norse mythology by Neil Gaiman: I listened to the audiobook version, and it’s wonderful.

3 Stars:

If I’m honest, I liked more Fairy Eyeglasses than Hunting Prince Dracula. It was my last attempt with the series by Kerri Maniscalco, I don’t want to read the next one.

2 stars:

Hello, it’s me, always disliking the superhyped books. Vengeance Road was a little meh for me, but I love the cover. Dolly was just really boring and disappointing, and I decided to give up with all the Susan Hill’s books.

1 star:

5803008

You’ve already read my review of Bedlam, right? So disappointing.

DNF:

28334313

My first DNF of the year: as I write in my review, I can’t stand it anymore. And I started thinking that retellings aren’t a genre for me.

And that’s all! I wish a happy reading month to all of you!
