Books Wrap Ups

January Wrap Up

February 5, 2018

I don't think I've read this many books in a month...ever! I'm so so happy with myself. And what I've read I've really enjoyed. All in all a fantastic month for reading. 

Children of the Whales Volume One

This is one of my new favourite Manga series, I bought it at first because of the cover but the actual story was fantastic. It's unlike anything I've read before. A floating island known as The Mud Whale is home to a village of people. The vast majority of whom have an ability known as Thymia, a kind of magic that burns out the user to the point of death. They've never seen any other people until now...

The Case Study of Vanitas Volume One

Again, this was a cover buy... thats now one of my favourite series. So much so that I've bought the next few volumes already! This series is about a mad man (ish) named Vanitas and his quest to save vampires that have been driven insane. Normally, vampires and human live together in relative peace but the ones that go insane have begun to threaten that. I love the characters and can't wait to learn more about them.

Sons of the Devil Volume One

I really enjoyed the cult/devil worship aspect of this novel. Okay, enjoyed might be a bad choice of words. I found it interesting. However, this first volume left me with a lot of questions and very confused. Multiple aspects of the story weaved together towards the very end, muddying the story. I found it hard to decipher what was actually going on in this one. However, I do want to continue with the series and I hope my questions are answered in the next volume.

The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy

I liked the story of The Mayor of Casterbridge but my god its so dreary. I read this over the span of two days and needed a hug and a hot chocolate once I'd finished. As sad and gloomy as this novel is I really enjoyed this book. I have Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd on my shelf and I might give that a go soon... hopefully it'll be a bit happier!

2. The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

Oh my god. I loved this book. So so much. It's so sad because of how relevant it is. The entire novel focuses on the double standard that slut-shaming brings. A girl will be called a slut for the same thing a guy will be high fived for. Whilst tackling such a prevalent topic The Exact Opposite of Okay remains funny and also focuses on friendship. I can't wait for more people to read this. It comes out on March 8th.

Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kristen Miller

Think Sword Art Online meets Ready Player One. Simon just wants his best friend back but something is keeping them apart and he knows it isn't what Kat wants. In an attempt to find out what happens Simon is forced to play a game that has deadly consequences. You only get one life. I adored this book, it had everything I loved. Gaming references, a break neck plot and incredibly high stakes.

Iron Gold* by Pierce Brown

I can't properly put into words how much I loved this book. Hopefully my review will explain.

Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone

Oh I loved this book so much. This is one for everyone, not just children. It's full of adventure and talks about the power of using your voice, regardless of how small you may feel. The world Abi created was so vivid and full of life. It was so easy to visualise everything that was described. Both Eska and Flint were such fantastic characters to read from. They both had very unique perspectives but eventually worked well as a team.

4. Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven

I stayed up till 2 in the morning to finish this. I'd only intended to read a few more chapters and then head to sleep. Next thing I knew I was sobbing, it was 2am and I'd finished it. All The Bright Places is still my favourite Jennifer Niven book but Holding Up The Universe is now on my favourites list.
