January TBR

I really want to start the year off by making a solid dent in my 2017 reading goals, so I’m hoping to spend a lot of time curled up in my favourite chair, with a cup of tea and my kindle.

In order to satisfy my ever changing reading moods, I’ve chosen books from quite a few different genres to cover every eventuality.

A lot of these titles are books that have been on my TBR shelf for an age and I’m only getting to now – but we’ll see how it actually pans out in real life. As you may notice in my December Wrap-Up, I wasn’t particularly good at sticking to my TBR at the end of 2016.

I could spend a lot of time rambling, but I know you’re all here for the books so I’ll let them take centre stage.


1. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone.

I could be wrong, I went through a phase of adding contemporaries to my TBR, but I think this is a book about a girl suffering from OCD. It’s gotten stupidly high ratings on Goodreads and it’s just missed the cut for several previous months of TBR’s, but this month it’s finally here!

2. High-Rise by J.G. Ballard.

I bought this as an ebook around the time the movie was released, but just never got around to reading it. I’ve been in the mood for a good dystopian lately, so I thought I’d give this one a shot. All I know about it is that it takes place in a High-Rise building (hence the title) and that there are different factions within the floors – I can’t really tell you more than that, unfortunately.

3. The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry.

I can tell you even less about this book! I think I added this book after hearing rave reviews from BooksbyLala. If I remember correctly, it’s a contemporary with some supernatural elements, but don’t quote me on that!


4. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

I know nothing except that it’s being turned into a movie and I think I’d like to see it.

5. The Black Key by Amy EwingThe Black Key by Amy Ewing.

I really want to try and finish some series in 2017, and I believe this is the last instalment in The Lone City series (the first book was The Jewel). Neither of the previous instalments were that enthralling, but I would like to complete the series.

6. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

I haven’t read this in so long, and I just have a craving for some Bronte – what more is there to say?

On top of this, I have a lot of reading to do for school. I have decided that I won’t be doing a detailed review of those novels as I fear I may say something in the post and plagiarise myself in essays! But have no fear, I have a cheeky series up my sleeve so you’ll hear a little something from me about them!

How’re you starting off your reading in 2017? Any interesting picks?

    1. Hmm, would I recommend it…. well, I’m planning to read the last book in the series so I guess that counts for something. It’s not anything groundbreaking, but if you’re a dystopian fan then check it out, you might enjoy it!

  1. I kinda already started my TBR 2017 list with When the Moon was Ours. And holy moly! I am only 33 pages in and it is so dreamy! I am pretty sure this is going to be on par with The Night Circus. And The Night Circus is one of my all time favorite books! ❤ I am also really looking forward to The Beast is an Animal which comes out in February and any books involving witches! 😀
