I know I’m super late to this, but ta da! here’s my first Wrap up post of the year – January and DiverseAThon wrap up.
This January started off on an encouraging note because I have read a total of 6 books. I’m combining the DiverseAThon wrap up with this because the DiverseAThon was the reason I read an extra 2 books and exceeded my normal count for the month (I’m a slooow reader)
So here are the books I read :
Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth
Author: Rick Riordan.
Fourth and penultimate book in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. I enjoyed this book more than the previous ones in the series and gave it 4 stars. Check out my full review on Goodreads.
I’ll Give You The Sun
Author : Jandy Nelson.
This is a YA Contemporary standalone book that I read on my friend’s recommendation. I have seen lots of reviews where people loved this book but unfortunately, I wasn’t one of them. My rating : 2 stars. Here’s the link to my review on Goodreads.
Authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
The MUCH hyped up first book in the YA Sci-fi series The Illuminae Files. One of those books where the exaggerated hype kinda ruined it for me. I still feel like I would have liked it better if not for my sky-high expectations. I rated with 3 stars and reviewed on Goodreads.
Manga Classics – Pride and Prejudice
Author: Jane Austen, adapted by Stacy Kind and art by Po Tse.
I discovered the Manga Classics through Netgalley and I’m really glad I did! It’s the classics done in a manga format that makes it an easy, quick read while still giving you the satisfaction of having read the whole book. I loved reading Pride and Prejudice in this format! I gave it 4 stars and wrote a short review on Goodreads. I’d probably write about these later on here too, because I’ve read a total of 3 classics from Manga classics now.
We Should All Be Feminists
Author: Chimamanda Adichie.
This is a powerful essay on why the idea of feminism is important in the modern society and how it should be embraced by everyone. I absolutely loved it and have reviewed it here on the blog.
The Masala Murder
Author: Madhumita Bhattacharrya.
This book revolves around a part-time journalist Reema Ray, whose passion in life is to become a successful detective. Reema hits upon two cases and how she solves them forms the crux of the story. I rated it with 3 stars and you can check my full review here.
