January was definitely a slow month. With bushfires and smoke haze and heat waves (oh my!), it was hard to really relax. I only read four books, and usually January is a month where I speed through seven or eight.
Past Month’s Reading:
It Sounded Better In My Head by NIna Kenwood (YA contemporary – 3.5 stars – review)
- Don’t Read The Comments by Eric Smith (YA contemporary – 5 stars – review)
- Bitter Falls by Rachel Caine (thriller – 2.5 stars – review)
- The Beginning (Blackbirch #1) by K. M> Allan (YA urban fantasy – 4 stars – review
The same listlessness that has affected my reading has also affected my desire to make videos. I do have a script mostly written, though, talking about It Sounded Better In My Head and The Beginning.

Favourite Bookish Photo:
Don’t Read The Comments was definitely my favourite book this month, and I wanted to celebrate its release in any way I could.. You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.
Physical book: The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shallcross. This book is beautiful but I’ve put it aside for a bit until I’m feeling a bit less reading slumpy. It’s so my kind of thing so I don’t want to force myself through it when I’m not in the mood.
Ebook: The Shadow Palace by Celine Jeanjean. This is the sixth book in the Viper and the Urchin series… I’ve got to admit I’m not enjoying it quite as much as previous ones.
Audio book: Before The Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray. I’m working through this very slowly. This is a long book. I kind of feel like some of the plot threads aren’t entirely necessary. But at the same time, the ones that are pivotal are so good.
Planning to read next:
Honestly, at this point I have absolutely no idea. I’ll have to see what takes my fancy.
