Hey guys! I hope you are all having a great week and your reading for 2021 is off to a good start. I have only read three books so far and I’m hoping a little reading update will spur me on as I’ve been reading so slowly this month. Plus, I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday post in a while and it’s always nice to bring it back every now and again. So without further ado, here’s my reading update for January:
Currently reading: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I have had this series sitting on my shelf for so long and since there’s a new book coming out (A Court of Silver Flames), I thought I should really attempt to read it again. I remember when I first read A Court of Thorns and Roses I absolutely adored it and that hasn’t changed in the slightest. Admittedly, I was hesitant going into it but honestly I had nothing to worry about. The plot is great, the characters are great and I’m just having a great time with it overall. I don’t think I need to explain what this book is about; it’s an immensely popular series and literally everyone loves it.
Recently finished: The Toll by Neal Shusterman
I’ve finished the Arc of a Scythe series now and it was definitely worth the hype. This is another really popular series and it was well worth the read. The story is set in a utopian world where there’s no disease, war or crime, which also means that everyone is immortal. In order to keep the popular under control, people are randomly selected to be ‘gleaned’ (killed) by a professional Scythe. Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been chosen as an apprentice, however, whoever wins at the end of it must glean the loser. I really didn’t know what to expect from this but the writing was excellent and the characters were so intriguing. I enjoyed the concept for this one and how there was a divide in the Scythedom between old and new order scythes. The third book was a bit heavy with the POVs but it didn’t put me off the story. It was an excellent series and I definitely recommend it!
What I’ll read next: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
This is the one I’m most terrified about! Last time I read it, it didn’t go so well for me. However, since that was like four years ago, I’m hoping I’ll be able to appreciate and enjoy it more as my reading tastes have changed a lot since then. Wish me luck!
So that’s my little reading update! What have you been reading this month? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
