How are you?
January started off with such a bang this month! And I have to say I’m really glad I started off the month in the way I did, so let’s get into it!
INTO THE CROOKED PLACE
This got a big old YIKES ! from me. You can read my review HERE to see why. (Though my review is not very coherent and doesn’t explain deep reasonings… sorry)
THE VANISHING STAIR
Maureen, honey, PLEASE when this series is over, keep writing YA mysteries okay? I didn’t adore this one as much, it didn’t have a whole heap of OOMPH, but it was so enjoyable none the less.
TOKYO GHOUL #6
When I read the first volume in JULY, I gave it 3.5 stars and didn’t think I would continue the series. Then, I brought the box set with the black Friday deals thinking it would be a decent read. I was so wrong, this was PHENOMENAL. I adored Ken and the world of the ghouls. The politics, the fighting, the anger, the pain, it was all so amazing and this is up there with my favourite Manga series now.
IF WE WERE VILLAINS
Hello heartbreak my old friend. This was a 5 STAR PREDICTION, and honestly, there was a time when I thought this maybe didn’t deserve the five stars I had predicted I would give it. And then the ending ripped my heart out and handed it to me on a platter. Yeah, good times.
TOKYO GHOUL #7
Sooooooooo, for my close friends who have read this series, I have been pestering them, asking who was on the cover of the 7th volume. Because he was wearing Kens mask, He had one red eye…… but that couldn’t be Ken. Anyways, besides my turmoil over the cover, this volume just reminded me so much as to why this is becoming one of my favourite series
THE OBESITY CODE
I picked this one up as it’s something that has been recommended to me a few times, and I’ve always been interested by it. I found it full of good information that was sound and rationally explained. I learnt ALOT about health and the history of eating in the western world. However there was a lot of repetition, and this could have been like 100 pages shorter.
END OF THE OCEAN
I truly, really really really disliked this novel. My full review is HERE. and I’m leaving it at that as I don’t like to focus on the books I haven’t enjoyed
TOKYO GHOUL #8
I am a biased b*tch who is so obsessed with this series that I need the light novels and the continuation series and every game ever produced. I got to buddy read this with my best friend and it was just us sending pictures and laughing and also being eyes emoji at this story and the characters. I cannot get over my love for it tbh.
gosh this book makes me so happy. This whole series is like a warm hug after a long day. It is cute with heaps of positive representation. My full review is coming in Feb!
THE GOD GAME
This was a review copy for HACHETTE NZ and my review is coming in early Feb. Overall I think this was an interesting read with some really cool AI and science elements, but it was ultimately let down by the characters and the fact that it was pretty unbelievable.
This was a review copy for HACHETTE NZ and my review is coming in Early Feb. I spent the last two days of Jan binging this book, and I regret NOTHING. it was honestly perfect in every single way and was a beautiful way to end the month.
So, that totals
