Recap: January 2017

Recap January 2017

In Recap I will tell you guys what I read this month, what books I bought this month and how far I am with my Goodreads Reading Challenge.


I had a good start this year with my reading. I tried to stick to the rule of not reading any series yet, because I then want to finish it and did not want to commit to such a big thing so early in the year. But eventually I did.

I read Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, Life & Death by Stephenie Meyer, Heartless by Marissa Meyer, Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton, The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab, The 100, Day 21 and Homecoming by Kass Morgan, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken, Club Dead by Charlaine Harris and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sánez.

I also have the aim to read some classics this year. I read three fairytales this month by the Brothers Grimm, Little Red Cap, Brair Rose and Snow-White and Rose-Red.

In the meantime I read a couple of comics/graphic novels, * Dark X-Men by Paul Cornell* and The Fall and The Chain by Brenden Fletscher.

So it is a total of 21 books, fairytales and comics/graphic novels. I am pretty happy with the amount.


Last month I knew I was going to England this month, so I wanted to buy a bunch of books. I kept my hands on my wallet last month and went all out this one. I bought Voyager by Diana Gabaldon before the trip, but during the trip I bought The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer, Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth, Replica by Lauren Oliver, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch and Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. And after I got back I also got Caraval by Stephanie Garber on its release date.
