Hey, y'all! :) I read some intense books this month, but they were quite amazing. In this post, I want to round those books up, and regardless of if I've given them a full review or not, I want to talk to you about them briefly and what my thoughts were about each one.

So, without further ado, let's get right into the books I read in January!

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

This high fantasy novel was a recommendation from my mom, and my goodness, I'm glad I picked this up. It's fun, I loved the protagonist, and I loved the world-building. I also loved the magic system. It was a delightful journey all around, and I recommend it to anyone, regardless of if you're into high-fantasy.

Vicious by V. E. Schwab

Y'all. This book is GOOD. 10/10, would recommend. ALL the stars. Go read it right now.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Now this one was interesting. It's about a post-apocalyptic world that's reeling from "the collapse" caused by a pandemic, and in this world, there's a traveling symphony that goes around from settlement to settlement performing Shakespeare. There are also other narratives that take place in the present day (years or even just weeks before the pandemic).

This novel is intense, but very good. The writing style felt a bit jarring at times, and there were a couple times where some characters behaved badly (in my opinion) and it upset me, but I still really enjoyed the story and the main characters (Kirsten was my favorite).
