January Reading Wrap-Up

Hello, everyone!

Last month I managed to read 3 books! All of them were e-reads, and two of them were read for review (to come).

Pages Read: +1008

If You Don't Know Me By Now, by A. L. Michael
(Read for review)

Pages: Not specified
Rating: 3/5
"What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Imogen has come to London to make it as a writer. At least, that was the plan. Finding herself in a dead-end job serving coffee to hipsters was not on her to-do list. And even if gorgeous colleague Declan does give her more of a buzz than a triple-shot cappuccino, Imogen can feel her dreams evaporating faster than the steam from an extra-hot latte.
Until her anonymous tell-all blog about London’s rudest customers goes viral – and suddenly, Imogen realises that landing the worst job in the world might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to her! As long as she can keep her identity to herself…"

All Of The Above, by James Dawson
(Read for review)

Pages: 336
Rating: 4/5
"When sixteen-year-old Toria Bland arrives at her new school she needs to work out who her friends are, all in a crazy whirl of worry, exam pressure and anxiety over fitting in. Things start looking up when Toria meets the funny and foul-mouthed Polly, who's the coolest girl Toria has ever seen. Polly and the rest of the 'alternative' kids take Toria under their wing. And that's when she meets the irresistible Nico Mancini, lead singer of a local band - and it's instalove at first sight! Toria likes Nico, Nico likes Toria . . . but then there's Polly. Love and friendship have a funny way of going round in circles."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by J. K. Rowling

Pages: 672
Rating: 5/5
"It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonal mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursleys' house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can't quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursleys' of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks' time? Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine..."

Which books did you read last month?

Lots of Love,



  1. Three cheers for the Halfblood Prince! Last month I read Why Eating Bogeys is Good For You (don't judge me for being lured in!), Only We Know and This Book is Gay

    One World, Too Many Pages

    1. Cheers!

      And the question I have for you is: why eating bogeys is good for you? Is that a fact?

      I've heard so many great things about This Book Is Gay! And I also like the review you wrote about it :).

  2. I absolutely loved All of the Above! I'm glad you enjoyed it too

    1. I really liked the story! And the character development and their backgrounds were nicely crafted :)
