5 Favorite Books Read in January & February


I know, I haven’t posted a recommandation post in forever — and not much on this blog as a whole, sadly — but I’m finally on break from school and wanted to share my 5 favorite reads from the last two months!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that January and February are doomed months, but I have to admit, books really made a difference! So without waiting more, here are the novels that brightened my life this past couple of months :

  • The Witness for the Dead by Katherine Addison : adult fantasy → Katherine Addison is a master of storytelling and I’m in awe of her characterization skills. The book as a whole isn’t perfect, but the flaws — a structure somewhat disjointed at times, mostly — grow dim in the face of its undeniable strengths. I cannot wait to read the sequel.
  • Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard : young adult fantasy → Let’s be clear : this blog is an Aeduan’s fan blog, and void witches hold my souls okay.
  • Wrath by John Gwynne : adult fantasy → I could probably complain about a few things but honestly? I had way too much fun with this series – and trust me, one needs serious talent to make me love a story filled with so many epic Fantasy tropes. John Gwynne definitely has tons, and I will happily read everything he writes. Balm for my soul, etcetera.
  • The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden : adult fantasy → After reading the first half a year (more?) ago, I finally found the courage to finish it last month and I couldn’t be happier. For me, this was perfection, and who knows, maybe I’ll be less grumpy when the roads are frozen in the mornings.

Now tell me, have you read any of these books? What were your favorite books in January and February?

  1. I haven’t read any of these yet, but I do want to read both the series by Arden and Dennard at some point. You know. When I have spare time… There are just so many books and so little time to read them all!
