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



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


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


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


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


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. 
Written by Neil Gaiman; Read by Neil Gaiman


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.
