January 2013 Wrap Up

Hey! It's been 2013 for a whole month now and it's crazy! I've done exams, started controlled assessments and done loads of school work but I've still managed to fit in some reading and blogging too, which is good, even if it isn't as much as I'd hoped! I'm hoping to read more in February as we have half term and no more exams until June, so in theory I should have more time. We'll see! Here's what I read in January!

Legacy (Night School, #2)  Level 2 (The Memory Chronicles, #1)  The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)

1. Night School by CJ Daugherty (reread)
2. Night School: Legacy by CJ Daugherty
3. Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans
4. The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan
5. The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead (half)

I was lucky enough to attend the launch party for Level 2, and it was great fun! There was cake and a photographer (guess which one I liked best? :P) and I'm happy to report that I really enjoyed Level 2 as well. Night School was a reread, so that I'd be all clued up for the sequel, Legacy, and I'm so in love with those books! I'm half way through The Indigo Spell right now and hope to finish it soon, and as expected from a Richelle Mead book, it's awesome. 

Number of pages read this month: 1671
Average number of pages per book: 334

My favourite book of this month was...

THE TRAGEDY PAPER by Elizabeth LaBan

The Tragedy Paper

This book surprised me. I had no idea it would be as awesome as it was, so I'm really glad I decided to read it, kind of on a whim! I feel like not many people have heard of it, and I want everyone to read it because it's so good! You can read my review here.

Here's what I'm looking forward to reading in February:

The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)  The Hanged Man Rises  Sister Assassin (Sister Assassin, #1)

And here are some awesome new releases to look forward to! The three books above are also released in the UK in February. 

Geek Girl  The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)  Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)
Infinite Sky  Dead Romantic  Dance of Shadows (Dance of Shadows, #1)

Thanks for reading! Let me know in the comments what you've read this month - what you liked, what you didn't, or which of the above books you think I should read first!

  1. I'm really looking forward to reading Infinite Sky! It looks so good and the cover is really pretty. I was able to read Geek Girl, Dead Romantic and Dance of Shadows in January and they are all amazing.
    The Tragedy Paper looks really good!

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
