Monthly Wrap-Up | January 2021 + Monthly TBR | February 2021

Happy February! I have mixed feelings on how quickly the month went by. Part of me is excited that this year is already moving at what feels like a normal/ faster pace, but on the other hand it still feels way too fast.

I think I might just continue to keep my nose in a book for most of the next couple months. Before I do that, let’s look back on my January 2021 (also, yay for first ever wrap-up post!)

January 2021 Wrap-Up

What I Read

  • The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones
  • Fangs by Sarah Andersen – my review
  • Anxious People by Fredrik Backman
  • The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
  • I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara
  • American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI by Kate Winkler Dawson

To be honest, I’m surprised that I read/ listened to 6 books! Generally, I think it was a fairly good reading month. Out of the 6, I think only one will be 5 stars, three will be 4 stars, and two will be 3 stars. The 3 star books – The Only Good Indians and American Sherlock – will get that rating mostly because certain aspects didn’t quite deliver for me.

  1. The Only Good Indians is very high on my tbr and I’m also fairly curious about The Midnight Library. What did you think about those?

    • Good Indians was good, but the horror aspect fell a little flat for me. Jones’ writing also took a bit for me to get into the rhythm of.
      I really enjoyed Midnight Library, the whole idea of seeing all the what ifs; I really liked Haig’s take on the idea of parallel universes.
      Hope you get to read both! Happy reading :)
