January 2019 – Reading Wrap-up


January brought my first 5-star read of the year – The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang, an amazing fantasy novel inspired by Chinese history. But I also was close to getting my first 1-star read, but after all, I ended up with two 2-star reads, two books that were kinda ok, but not worth my hate towards them. 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne was a big disappointment after all the fun that author’s previous book The Hating Game brought me. An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen started promising and thrilling but never delivered – longer review on the 7th February. I had a pleasure of spending over 6 hours listening to Colin Firth reading The End of the Affair by Graham Greene, I didn’t find the story riveting, but it was interesting and a different in comparison to other books from the 1950s. I finished my reading January with non-fiction Just Eat It: How intuitive eating can help you get your shit together around food by Laura Thomas.
