Monthly Wrap-up January 2019. #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Bloggers #Blog #BlogPost


I thought that I’d end January with my first ever monthly wrap-up post. I didn’t get many books read or reviewed (only four, shocking I know and I’m supposed to be a book blogger) during the month but I did (at least, I think I did) have a fairly decent blogging month (thanks to some killer original content which probably won’t appear for another six months) so I thought why not wrap it up?!?!

Whether or not I continue with the monthly wrap-up posts remains to be seen but there’s always a first-time and this after nearly three years of blogging this is mine! πŸ™‚

So, I shall reveal (not like flasher Gremlin) all of what I posted in January for you.


My January Posts.








Review snippet:

Our Child of the Stars isn’t fast-paced or action-packed, it’s not that type of story. It’s a slow burn until later in the book when Cox lights the touch paper and then, the pacing, the scope and in a sense, the action all pick-up. What Cox gives you with Our Child of the Stars is an emotional story that is filled with tension and one that has an underlying intensity to it. It is a quietly impactful enchanting story, a poignant portrait of a family life, a story that is threaded with hope, a story that highlights the ties that bind, the strength of those bonds and of those that have been bound together by fate and a story that asks, how far will you go to protect the ones you love?


Review snippet:

Splintered Suns is a raucous romp and a rollicking roller-coaster of a space adventure that is brimming with miscreants, races, rogues, scoundrels and heart.


Review snippet:

Guerdon is a city on the edge, it is reaching a precipice, history repeats and it feels like Guerdon is once again ready for change. Guerdon is a city that is steeped in a festering history with more below than above. Over time everything crumbles to dust and the city has been built on and rebuilt on countless times using foundations of the past to fashion the present. It is festooned with tunnels and warrens beneath the streets that go down for miles hiding many a forgotten secret and many a horror that should remain buried and lost to the past. It is a living, breathing fetid hellhole of a city that is full of different districts and one that is populated by a whole array of unsavoury characters that comes to grimy life in the hands of Hanrahan.

The Gutter Prayer is a cauldron of creativity. It is batshit crazy, it is brilliant, it is demented and it is all fused together with grim goodness.


Review snippet:

The Chestnut Man is an intelligent and well-crafted thriller that radiates unease, it is a multi-layered story that grips you and doesn’t let go, it is chilling and compulsive with a setting that is steeped in atmosphere and it features a killer that is ice-cold and calculating.

  1. I love doing monthly wrap ups and reading them. It’s always fun to see a condensed version of what someone read & blogged that month. I really like your lay out for this wrap-up AND I like how you included a snippet of your reviews. I hope you’ll keep doing them πŸ™‚
