I shall start this year strong! Hence, I picked a total of 9 (yes, you heard me right – NINE) books to read in January. It’s been a while since I was able to read more than 6 books per month, and my internship started this week. But I believe in myself! And big books don’t scare me at all. (well.. maybe a little bit).
Sadly, many new books released in January won’t arrive in time for me to read them all in January. They will just have to queue for the next month’s TBR.
The very first book on my to-be-read list is «Origin» by Dan Brown. I’m already halfway through it and LOVING every page.
It’s been so long since I’ve read any of Dan Brown books that I forgot how much I enjoyed reading them. The best features of all his books are the real places, objects, history elements that Dan Brown craftily weaves into his narrative. And you can just google them and see exactly what they look like!
The next two books I really want to get to in January, and simultaneously keep up with my 2019 reading goals, are «The Amber Spyglass» and «La Belle Sauvage» by Philip Pullman.
«The Amber Spyglass» is the conclusion to His Dark Materials trilogy. Very interested to see how everything ends. But then! «La Belle Sauvage» is the 1st book in the Book of Dust series, set in the same world as his previous books.
As I mentioned in my 2018 wrap up post, I want to finally finish the last series I’m reading by Cassandra Clare, and just put her books away. I won’t be reading any new works by her. And also I just need to read the last book in the Darkest Minds series, and take them off my list.
And of course, my first Brandon Sanderson book – «The Final Empire»! I’ve heard so many amazing things about this series and his books in general, that I’m scared to go into them with such high expectations. Hopefully, it will deliver.
There are also some ARCs that I’m hoping to read in January:
I think that is enough books for one month. What are you planning to read in January? What book are you the most excited about?
