Here’s a list of all the books I read in January! I really got into audiobooks, and the titles that are italicized are ones that I listened to rather than physically read. I wasn’t the best at formal reviewing books last month, but I wrote a number of mini-reviews on my Goodreads account, which I’ve provided links to!

My favourite books of the month were: Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb, The Flight of the Silvers by Daniel Price, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden, and More Than This by Patrick Ness.
