Wrap-Up| Jan-Feb 2019

I feel like the only thing I even have time to do recently is writing TBRs, Book Hauls, and then Wrap-Ups at the end of the month.


All the Lonely People
David Owen
⭐⭐⭐⭐

Goodreads

BLOG TOUR| REVIEW

Really loved this one and how it explored the concept of loneliness and friendship. Check out my review to know more!
The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1)
Holly Black
⭐⭐⭐⭐

Goodreads

Oh fine, the hype got me in the end. I'm hoping to write a review this week, or soonish, but this was the kind of faerie book I have always wanted to read growing up. Dark, brutal and full of deceit. YUM!



Wide Sargasso Sea
Jean Rhys
⭐⭐

Goodreads

The only book on my Neo-Victorianism reading list I have managed to finish this month (although, I haven't started Sea of Poppies yet). I'm not 100% sure on what I read, nor did I enjoy the writing style. 

Neverwhere (London Below #1)
Neil Gaiman


Goodreads

The first of a minor Neil Gaiman binge this month. I love love love Neil Gaiman's stories. And with the addition of illustrations from Chris Riddell, these worked to create a magical touch to an already fantastical story. Neverwhere remains still one of my favourites. 


How the Marquis Got His Coat Back (London Below #1.5)
Neil Gaiman


Goodreads

This was a little novella that was published in an anthology, in 2013. And has since been added as bonus material in my addition of Neverwhere. I really enjoyed it, and think you could enjoy it without the world building of London Below. 
Coraline
Written by Neil Gaiman; Read by Neil Gaiman


Goodreads

Another reread, but this time I listened to it via audiobook. Do we need to reiterate how much I love Neil Gaiman reading his own writing. He's voice is so soothing! 
Coraline is creepy and eery and not one to listen to on your own.
