Hey everyone, this year I have made a goal of reading at least 20 books, which is not a lot for someone who is a bookworm, but I would like to reach this target by the end of the year. In January, I read 3 books. Keep scrolling to find out the books I read (;

My January Reads
1. TWISTED LIES by ANA HUANG
Genre – Romance, Comtemporary Romance, Spicy Romance
Twisted Lies by Ana Huang is the last installment in the Twisted Series (Twisted Love, Twisted Games and Twisted Hate). This series is about four bestfriends, Ava, Bridget, Jules and Stella, and their twisted relationships with perfect yet morally grey men. Twisted Lies is about Stella Alonso and her fake relationship with Christian Harper. They start fake dating so that Stella can boost her social media accounts and from there blossoms their relationship (which is quite a positive way of stating their twisted relationship).
Overall, I enjoyed this book as much as I loved the first three books of this series and would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

2. SHATTER ME by TAHAREH MAFI
Genre – YA Fiction, Romance, Science Fiction, Dystopian Fiction
This book has been surfacing in my Instagram fyp for a long time, I had heard great things about it from many booktokers, so I decided to get my hands on this book.
Its about a girl, Juliette Ferars, who has the ability of lethal touch. She is 17 years old and has been kept in an asylum, all alone, for a few years. One day she finds herself with another person in her cell, Adam Kent, whom she recognises as someone she went to school with. Soon after Kent’s arrival she is set free from isolation just so The Reestablishment can use her as a weapon. Shatter Me is also famously known for its love triangle between Juliette, Adam and Warner.
Hands down, the WORST book I’ve read in my twenty years of my life. I would not recommend it to anyone. I’d rate this book 1 out of 5 stars.

3. GIANT’S BREAD by AGATHA CHRISTIE
Genre – Romance, Fiction, Tragedy
Giant’s Bread by Agatha Christie is a wonderfully written book about a man’s life, right from his days in the nursery till he is an adult. It encapsulates the life of Vernon Deyre, who led a very sheltered life from his childhood and how he navigates love, life and music. This is also Agatha Christie’s first non-mystery novel under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott.
The book had a slow start but a must read in my opinion. I rated this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Those were all the books I read in January. I will be writing reviews on Giant’s Bread and Twisted Lies in the near future but count me out on writing a review for Shatter Me (not worth my time). I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments, your thoughts about the books I’ve mentioned or any book you have read this past month.
