January in books

Goodbye January! Hello February!

How did your January go guys? What bookish things did you get up to?

I had a busy January!
I chaired my first author event! Check back on Saturday to see how it went!
I met Matt Haig (which was amazing)!
I read lots of books!
I received an amazing amount of book post!
I was nominated for a UKYABA!
January was quite surreal.

So what did I read? I read 13 books in January! Not bad for one month. 

MG books
The Ice Garden – Guy Jones
Sam Wu Is Not Afraid of Ghosts – Katie and Kevin Tsang
The 1000 Year Old Boy – Ross Welford
Magic Misfits – Neil Patrick Harris
Elephants Don’t Sit on Cars – David Henry Wilson
Pax – Sara Pennypacker
Spy Toys: Out of Control – Mark Powers
Hitler’s Canary – Sandi Toksvig
A Far Away Magic – Amy Wilson

YA books
Second Best Friend – Non Pratt
Gilded Cage – Vic James
Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu
Hero at the Fall – Alwyn Hamilton

As you can see I read a lot more kids books than YA books! That won’t always be the case!

What about my book challenges?

#BritishBooksChallenge: 6/12 (maybe more!)
#52books2018: 13/52
Goodreads challenge: 13/52

I’m not doing too bad!

I’ve had a busy January, I’m hoping February brings me some more excellent books! There’s half term, so I can get stuck into a load of books then! 

How are you getting along with your book challenges?
What was your favourite read in January?
Can you recommend me any books to read in February?

Comment me, tweet me, instagram me! I’d love to talk!
