Can you believe it’s already February? What the hell??? I don’t wanna sound like a cliché, but where the hell is time going? It feels like New Years Eve was just a few days ago 😅
Alright, enough rambling… let’s get to the important stuff: what I read in January!!
Books read: 3
Pages read: 1057
Favorite read of the month: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen ♡
Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking
This book is a fantasy novel set in a sort of futuristic version of our world. It is packed with mythology from various cultures and all kinds of different creatures.
Our main character is a Valkyrie, which means she is assigned to kill immortals – well, not kill, but end their time on Earth. Most of the women in her family have been Valkyries, just like her. One day, some guy she doesn’t know comes into her apartment looking for someone, and from there a dangerous adventure begins.
I really enjoyed this story, more than I had anticipated, so I do think it’s worth giving it a try. I partnered up with St. Martin’s Press to do a giveaway – my first giveaway of the year!! -, which was awesome, so thank you to them for working with me once again ♡
★★★★☆ 4/5 stars
The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
This is a domestic thriller that is sure to make an appearance on my favorite books list of this year. I had no idea this story would go where it went, and it was SO amazing.
Such a good mystery, plot, everything. And the ending, what!?? It had the most unexpected ending. I would never even think of it, so kudos to the authors for the great ending!
There were also a couple of details about a character that made me feel kind of freaked out because they were exactly the same in my life. I mention them in my review if you’re interested.
I have a hard time expressing myself when I really love a book, so I’m sorry if this is all over the place 😅 You can read my full review here for a more detailed and cohesive text.
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
This is a post-WW3 dystopian novel – pretty much the only dystopian novel I ever loved, which is saying a lot!
I really loved the characters, especially Jeremiah 😋 You know me, cute boys are my weakness 😂 But on a serious note, the characters felt real in this one, and the way they acted made sense considering their past experiences.
The world is also pretty interesting, and I asked the author about it and how she came up with it, so if you’d like to know, be sure to check out my review + Q&A with Bethany here.
I didn’t read a lot this month and I’m already 3 books behind on my goal, but I’ll get there!! Hopefully, I can get my shit together and bring my TBR down 🤞🏼
