What I Read in January

61fs8sw69rl-_sx329_bo1204203200_The Lie Tree, by Frances Hardinge

 The Lie Tree is a fabulous book. I loved the concept and the writing perfectly suited the era it was set in. The plot kept me breathless until the end, and I just went and reserved Frances’ Cuckoo Song at my local library.

I had only finished reading it a few days ago, when it was announced that it won the Costa Book Awards 2015. So congratulations Frances!

 

Wings, by Aprilynne Pike513bmav0hml-_sx340_bo1204203200_

 I’ve re-read quite a few books this month, and after remembering how much I enjoyed it a few years ago, I decided to pick Wings up.

Once more, I was spell-bound by this modern-day tale of faeries. All the perfect elements are included to make a wonderful, magical series, that I could read over and over again.

I’d heard a lot about this book, but to be honest, I wasn’t really expecting to enjoy it. (I don’t know why!) But was I wrong!

The story captivated me from start to finish, and I may have shed a tear or ten. It was such a heart-breaking read, and to my delight, I’ve heard that a movie based on All The Bright Places is going to be released this year.

The third book in the fabulous Model Under Cover series was, if possible, even better than the last two.

These mystery books are so detailed and the pace is well-set. I’m definitely looking forward to Carina’s next book, Model Under Cover: Dressed To Kill.

I’d heard so much about this book, and was very excited when I saw it in my local library.

I thought it was a brilliant book, mainly covering the serious topic of mental illness, but written so that I snorted with laughter quite frequently. Loved it!
