One of my main goals for the new year is to diversify my reading and I´m happy to report that I managed to do that in the month of January:
Two fantasy books, one romance and one historical fiction read, genres I´m not reading too much off. I´m pretty happy with that.
I´ve read 10 books this month (one was a reread) and I DNF´d 4 books. My average star rating has been 3.15 stars:
The best books of the month (4 stars):
Would I be forced to pick a favorite out of these 4 books, it would be this one:
An absolutely wonderful and heartwarming read. I already ordered quite a few other books by Georgette Heyer, because, in my mind, they are the most delightful form of escapism and I want to have a couple of those on my shelves.
The worst book of the month (1 star):
A dark fantasy / horror novel, in which elements of Alice in Wonderland are included in a most disguting and disturbing story. I couldn´t see a deeper meaning in the plot of this book, for me it was just one big pile of gore and garbage. I really didn´t enjoy this book.
The four remaining books I have read this month are:
3.5 stars 3 stars 2.5 stars
Not too bad for January, even though my star rating didn´t exceed four stars. But those five books were very, very strong four star reads.
