With the help of the Dumbledore’s Army Readathon in early January and Winter Bookish Bingo (which is still going on throughout February!), I read eight books last month. That’s twice my usual goal of three to four books, so I’m starting 2017 quite strong. Here is the list of the books I read, along with quick ratings for each:
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: ★★★
- The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware: ★★★★
- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi: ★★★
- Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst: ★★★
- Difficult Women by Roxane Gay: ★★★★
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: ★★★★
- Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: ★★★★★
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie: ★★★★
My absolute favorite books were Simon and A Darker Shade of Magic. Since I’m going on vacation this month, I don’t think I’ll read quite as much as I did in January, but I hope to at least stay ahead of my reading goal for the year, which is 60 books.
