Well, I can’t believe it’s already the end of the first month of 2022. I’ve not been blogging much for the last couple of weeks as I’ve not been feeling so well unfortunately. I’m moving house (again!) at the end of February as well so will probably not be around that much this month either. Once we’ve moved and things have settled down a bit I’m planning to be back posting more regularly again!
The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton (audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This book was absolutely not what I was expecting and was completely strange but kind of amazing at the same time. This historical adventure romance with a splash of magic (and tea) was a delightfully fun read.
Aurora’s End by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – It feels like forever since I read Aurora Burning and I was so desperate to see how this story would end! While I did enjoy it, the first book is still my favourite in the series, followed by the second, but Aurora’s End was still a good conclusion to the series.
The Councillor by E. J. Beaton (audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – With political manoeuvring, intrigue, twists, elemental magic, a great protagonist and engaging narration from Moira Quirk, I absolutely loved this fantasy novel!
Another month without much writing! I think covid knocked me really bad because I am really struggling with my energy levels so I haven’t been feeling up to writing. My books are having some time to simmer in my mind though, maybe I’ll brew some new ideas.
What books have you enjoyed this month? Chat with me in the comments!

I’ve been dreading reading Aurora’s End because I just don’t want this series to end, it’s so, so good and after the epic ending of Aurora Burning, I really can’t see anything else topping it off. Yours is probably the first review/thoughts I’ve read on it and I’m glad you found it a good conclusion to the series and I hope I do too
The end of Aurora Burning was truly epic! That cliffhanger! I hope you enjoy Aurora’s End, I thought it had a good and emotional ending.
Happy February! Sorry to hear covid messed with your writing flow, that sounds really tough and I hope you were kind to yourself. On a lighter note, I had a wonderful time revisiting the Lord of the Rings this month and I did so much crying about it, it’s ridiculous (and also beautiful 🥺)
Thank you, it has been tough but hopefully things will improve soon. Ahh I love the Lord of the Rings!! It’s been a while since I read the books, I must reread them at some point. I rewatched the films recently actually and they reminded me why I love LOTR, the story and the world.
I can’t wait to watch the films again! Middle Earth is everything to me 🥺
