MY READ OF THE MONTH

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant.

It was my first 5* read of the year, so has to feature as my Read of the Month. Killer mermaids, scientists, dolphins, and high-stakes out on the vast ocean, what more could you want? Add in a few pretty scary moments and you’re in for a good read.

BEAT THE BACKLIST

My total for this challenge is 4 books read.  I’ve read:

The Watcher by Ross Armstrong
The Christmas Secret by Karen Swan
Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
Year One by Nora Roberts

GOODREADS

I set myself the target of reading 20 books this year, which is the same as last year. I didn’t want to go too high because I always choose such long books that I want to keep it low pressure and just enjoy what I’m reading, without having a massive target to reach.
My current total of books read is 4.

GOALS

  • I’ve kept up with my reviews so far, which is quite good as I’ve read more this month than I usually do.
  • I took part in my first readathon of the year, Bout of Books, and am on the lookout for another even to participate in.
  • Sci-fi and Post-Apocalyptic featured in my reading choices this month, so I’m still indulging my enjoyment of those genres.

So concludes January’s Reading Review. See you again next month
