#MonthlyWrapup : January 2019

Hello Readers! I wish you all had joyful January.

This month was great from the very beginning. My review was published in the 3rd issue of RAC magazine, I got 5 new author requests for review, and (even though I have written I’m not accepting requests! I guess this policy thing is not working and I feel bad turning down the requests. I try to limit them by offering promotional post in place of review.) I thought I can manage only 5 books with my now 2 and half month daughter to take care but I read 7 book.  Stats is also coming to normal.  I’m quite happy with New Year this time.

This month I read and reviewed

Total Books- 7
Total Pages Read- 2054

Anne of Island by L.M. Montgomery — (Review) ★★★★★
Lovely entertaining YA classic fiction with lively animated protagonist and characters, some hilarious and some sad moments that anyone can enjoy.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan — (Review) ★★★★1/2
Slow start but entertaining opening, exciting, adventurous, action packed book full of mythology. Those who enjoys MG, YA books will definitely love to read this.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini — (Review) ★★★★★
Utterly intense, poignant, soul-stirring and thought-provoking very original fiction that I highly recommend to fiction and classic lovers.

Broken Heart Attack (Braxton Campus Mysteries Book 2) by James J. Cudney — (Review) ★★★★★
Engaging cozy mystery with creative and amusing character. I recommend to go in order to enjoy it fullest.

Zenka by Alison Brodie — (Review) ★★★★★
Refreshing, fast paced, humorous mafia/mob romance that I recommend to the readers of this genre.

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2) by

  1. I wish you would go into more detail about each book. There’s pros and cons to every book. But really good word choice and your writing isn’t lacking in anything but length. 🙂 love the reviews!!!

    1. I write pros and cons as likes and dislikes (why i cut stars), I won’t write cons if I couldn’t find one. But other readers can find cons in book i gave full stars.
      I don’t go in detail with plot if it has descriptive blurb and i don’t believe in writing lengthy summery as well.
      I try to go in detail as much as i can but some books increase risk of spoilers in doing so.
      Thank you for honest feedback! I will improve them little more now on and I look forward to hear your thoughts on them.


  2. You got into the Percy Jackson series! What prompted you to start PJO now? I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying it.

    It’s frustrating when you say you’re not accepting review requests and still get submissions. 1) People aren’t respecting what you said and 2) you end up feeling bad saying no. (Or is the second one just me?)

    1. I’m re-reading PJO. I never reviewed them when I read it for first time and I was not on blog as well. Now that I’m seeing Riordan books so much on blogoshere, i thought why not to go on adventure once again.
      Some request i decline or offer to post promo only but some turns out so interesting and that it’s hard to decline.
