What I Read in January 2020

Well, looking back over my January reads was a delight! What a way to kick off my reading year. Honestly, there’s some brilliant books on this list that I highly recommend. And what were they, you ask…

My January 2020 Book Reviews:

/ Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

/ The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

/ The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (And Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did) by Philippa Perry

/ Pine by Francine Toon

/ Little Bandaged Days by Kyra Wilder

/ It Started With A Secret by Jill Mansell

/ Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth

My fiction reads were delightfully varied this month, from hard-hitting topics to satirical commentary and a touch of romance.  Such a Fun Age tackles racism and white privilege and Little Bandaged Days is about a mother’s descent into depression and madness. Both make you think and discuss serious issues and both are 100% worth adding to your TBR.

Then I also read two heart-warming rom coms: (I know, I went from barely reading any in 2019 to two already. What can I say? I’ve developed heart!) The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and It Started With A Secret.  I rounded off the month with the wonderfully atmospheric Pine and Adults, a witty take on our social-media obsessed era. So yes, like I said, varied!

I read my non-fiction choice over the Christmas break while my boys were being quite *spirited* and it was an eye-opening book in many ways. It advocates a style of parenting that really brings the children’s feeling to the forefront, while making sure your feelings – and why you react to certain situations in certain ways – are addressed too. I took copious notes.

Looking to February, I’ve just finished reading a brilliant modern horror / murder mystery hybrid for a blog tour; very excited to share that review with you soon…

Until next month, Happy Reading!
