Wrap-Up: Books Read in January 2021

Hey guys! 

Here’s my first wrap-up post of 2021!

I would like to talk about the books that I read in January and focus on the books that released in the month.

I managed to read 17 books in the month ( I have no idea how I managed this feat and I am not sure that the streak will continue, but let’s see :P), some of which made it to my 5 star reads category!

Among these books, a huge shoutout to the following which were released in Jan 2021!
These books were beyond amazing and were straightaway promoted to favourite books of the year!

A Vow So Bold And Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer

Genre: Fantasy Fiction

This is the final book in the Cursebreakers series and is a wonderfully crafted conclusion that ties up all lose ends and answers all questions! I loved it and am now craving for more content on some of our favourtie characters.

The Last Queen by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Genre: Women’s Fiction, Historical Fiction

The author is a favourite and her books are an absolute must read! This book based on Rani Jindan Kaur, a lesser known, almost forgotten Queen of the Sikh Empire is very well-written. The story based on historical fact, brings out a myriad of emotions that will pull the reader in and keep them hooked until the very end!

Books to Read (TBR list) – January 2021

Hello All,

I am not normally in the habit of planning ahead with the books I read. I tend to read purely based on my mood and of course based on Blog Tour deadlines (if I have signed up or committed to an author).

However, this year, I decided to make some changes to the way I read, review and blog! Having signed up for so many different kinds of reading challenges, I am trying to be better organized (if I can manage it :P).

In this post, I have made a tentative list of books that I plan to read in January.

Here goes…. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts, feedback or recommendations!
