January Wrap-Up // ft. Wrap-Ups for Among Us Readathon and Explore-a-thon

January has been a whirlwind of a month! I had school examinations right from the beginning of the month till 15th, then had another really important examination on 26th (I know! Who keeps exams on Republic Day?) so the entire month seemed to pass by pretty quickly.

It was also a pretty good month on terms of reading, but not so much in blogging. I feel like I kinda neglected my blog a little, and just enjoyed reading other’s posts instead of writing my own. I also posted very infrequently and with long gaps, and now at the end of the month, suddenly three posts pop up on three consecutive days. (Atleast that’s how I have planned this post, are you reading this on the 31st, or after?) So sorry about that, I hope to be a little more consistent from now onwards.

Reading

I read 5 books (plus 1 comic, but I don’t count comics in my book count) this month, and a total of 2391 pages which is a quite a lot more than what I read last month. The books I read were (in order) –

Tin by Padraig Kenny [MY REVIEW]

My first book of the year!!

Unlocked by Shannon Messenger [My Rating – 4.5 stars]

The Red Scrolls Of Magic by Cassandra Clare [MY REVIEW]

The Reader by Traci Chee [My Rating – 3.5 stars]

Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo [Review to come soon!]
