January 2021 Wrap Up

Today is actually my two year blog anniversary! Though, my first year of blogging stopped after a month… but I picked up blogging again nearly exactly a year afterwards on the 11th February; so if we’re not counting today, we’ll count it in a few days time!

For some reason, I thought that I had had my biggest reading month – I read 10 books. However, I knew my blog anniversary was coming up, so I went back on old posts to find the exact date; and apparently January has always been a really good reading month for me. I always reach double figures in January and in 2019 I read 13, in 2020 I read 11 and in 2021 I read 10. While it’s been my worst January in three years, in some ways it’s been my best reading month ever. I read really big books this month – the shortest book was 406 and the longest book was 803. I read a total of 5,698 pages in January which is wild to me.

I had a very, very Sarah J Maas start to the year. I have read so many Sarah J Maas books this month. So, let’s start talking about Sarah J Maas.

A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

I know I only just reread this series last month, however, I joined a book club where they are staggering the books right up until the release of the fourth book on the 16th. I am so excited for it. I don’t know if I will ever tire from these characters. It’s such a comfort read for me and I’m looking forward to rereading the other book in the series, and the novella and then the new release this month.

Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

I don’t know why I put this book off for so long. It was incredible. It definitely lived up to the hype for me. It feels like so long ago that I read it, even though it’s only been a month. It quickly became one of my favourite books of all time. I truly don’t think a single book – especially a first in the series – has ever made me cry so much and go through so many emotions so quickly. I already want to reread it.

Throne of Glass Series Book 0-6 by Sarah J Maas

If you’ve been keeping up to date with my blog, you will know I have been releasing some discussion posts as I made my way through the series. You’ll also quickly realise how behind I am! I go too carried away in the story. It was really refreshing to actually be enjoying this book series, instead of disliking it. I am so glad I gave the series another chance, I love it now. I’m halfway through the final book and I am not prepared for how much this book is going to destroy me. You can catch up on my discussion posts so far in the series here.

This year has started out great reading wise, and I can’t wait to keep up with my reading. I finally feel like I am properly out of my reading slump and I am ready to devour my TBR pile.

  2. I had an amazing reading months as well= in January.

    Narnia and Castle in the Air were the books I reed in January. However, would you count a book I finished in January, but finished the 1st of February (House of Many Ways). Depending on how you look at at it, either 8 or 9 books

    1. That’s a great month!
      I usually count the books in the month that I finished them, rather than started in them – everyone is different though!


    1. So many book, such little time! I’m in one of those moods right now, where I’m completely overwhelmed by all of the books on my tbr, so I am ignoring them and rereading old favourites 😂


      1. I get that so often too. There’s definitely a comfort in returning to old favourites. I’m going the other way and reading my way through all the new books I got for Christmas and ignoring everything that has been sitting on my TBR bookshelves forever.
