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!
    You're so lucky! I'd love to go to a launch party! And there was cake! Yum...

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift. My Thoughts: Insight was a good book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were complex and real. It was a strong debut novel,
