I can’t believe it’s already January 2017!!! How does time go by this fast? Seriously. Books always seem to go too fast, too. Since that’s the case, my January TBR pile is pretty ambitious. But! I’ve already read 8 books this month and it’s only the 7th. I’m doing pretty well. So far, I’ve read:
- Harmony by Jordan L. Hawk (short story)
- Hoarfrost (Whyborne & Griffin #6) by Jordan L. Hawk (novel)
- Maelstrom (Whyborne & Griffin #7) by Jordan L. Hawk (novel)
- Fallow (Whyborne & Griffin #8) by Jordan L. Hawk (novel)
- The 13th Hex (Hexworld 0.5) by Jordan L. Hawk (short story)
- The Summer Palace by C.S. Pacat (short story)
- Once Upon a Dream by Megan Derr (collection of fairy tales, begun in 2016)
- Restless Spirits by Jordan L. Hawk
As you can see, I’ve been a total Jordan L. Hawk fangirl this month. Her Whyborne & Griffin series is going down as one of my absolute favorites EVER. For Real. I will do a series review when it finishes up in the next year or so. But expect me to wax poetic about it here when I discuss favorite characters or “excited for” posts, etc.
My must-reads (not the entire list) for January are:
Magics Pawn by Mercedes Lackey
I’ve been looking forward to this series for a while and though it’s a bit older, I think I’ll enjoy it. It’s a YA fantasy novel about a young musician intent on becoming a bard, but his skills are a bit lacking. The story unfolds as his powers awaken and he becomes the last Herald-mage!
Hexmaker (Hexworld #2) by Jordan L. Hawk
I’m currently reading book 1 of this series (Hexbreaker) at the moment and am THOROUGHLY enjoying it. The magic system in this series with a witch + familiar + the utilization of hexes is fascinating. A definite fun read if you like shape-shifters, Alternate History, and a bit of romance thrown in!
The Crown’s Dog by Elise Kova
I am a huge Elise Kova fan. I was enchanted with her Air Awakens series and am super looking forward to jumping into this–one of the prequels to the AA series. Jax was one of my favorite characters in those books and he’s the star of this one. I’m way behind as the rest of the book bloggers have already read this, but I’m down for catching up! 😀
The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova
This is another Kova novel that has been much anticipated in the fantasy fandom. I’ve heard such good things about this steampunky YA fantasy and can’t wait to crack open my Kindle version when it comes out in just a few days.
What are you reading in January? What are your most anticipated reads? Can’t wait to hear!
