My reading life was off to a rocky start this year. I fell into a massive book slump and nothing sounded good. For some reason I felt a crazy amount of pressure about what book I would make my First Book of the Year and nothing felt good enough. So my first few books weren’t great, but I did manage to read quite a few books and a number of them were quite excellent.

Leigh Bardugo announces new book
As a fan of both The Grisha and Six of Crows series, I was excited to hear that Bardugo is writing another book in the Grishaverse. This book is called The Language of Thorns and it’s a collection of short stories and folk tales set in the Grisha world. Am I the only one massively disappointed by this??? I don’t really care about short stories to be honest. And if there’s more stories to be told in the Grishaverse I want a Sturmhond/Kaz spinoff!!!
Looking Forward to February:
I have reviews for Making Faces and The Young Wives Club scheduled. I’m looking forward to having the day off on President’s Day. Other than that, nothing is really sticking out. Winter in Ohio is nothing to look forward to.
