Best of the Bunch // January 2019

Something new on the blog in the new year is Best of the Bunch. It is a monthly link up hosted by A Cocoon of Books where you share your favorites of the month and then pick your ultimate favorite of that month. As I was browsing around some of the reoccurring memes and came across this.

While I of course share what I read in my monthly wrap up and write my reviews I don’t always go out of my way to share a favorite with you. I think this can be a great addition to my monthly wrap up where I can share some more about the book I loved, especially if I did not end up writing a review, which happens sometimes.

This month I read a total of 12 books which is a great start to the reading year I think.

Favorites of the Month

The Girl in the Tower / The Winter of the Witch / A Pinch of Magic

Best of the Bunch

The second book of the year and already a 5 star read! You can obviously click on my review above.


The incredible adventure begun in The Bear and the Nightingale continues as brave Vasya, now a young woman, is forced to choose between marriage or life in a convent and instead flees her home – but soon finds herself called upon to help defend the city of Moscow when it comes under siege.


Sequel / Winternight Trilogy Book 2 / Russian Mythology / Retelling / Historical Fantasy / Introspective / Adult

  1. This is a neat meme! I haven’t seen it before, but it seems like the sort of thing I’d love. 🙂 I look forward to seeing how this progressed on your blog this year. Perhaps a Best of the Best next January for 2019 reflection?!

    I have to finish the Winternight trilogy. I’ve heard amazing things and I loved the first book! Now, if only I can prioritize it…

  2. Ik was aan het overwegen om iets gelijkaardigs in mijn bullet journal te doen. Het is zo’n terugkerende vraag aan het einde van vele maandelijkse post rond gelezen boeken en ik moet telkens nadenken over welk boek ik nu het beste vond. Het helpt al wanneer je eerst drie favorieten kan uitkiezen en vervolgens daar het beste/leukste/… uit kiest.

    Voor januari waren dat Staalhart van Brandon Sanderson, De kleuren van magie van V.E.Schwabb en Het magische archief. Met het middelste boek als grootste favoriet.

    1. Fijn dat je De Kleuren van Magie zo leuk vond. Ik ben blij dat Schwab eindelijk is vertaald in nederland. Hopelijk word de rest van haar boeken ook vertaald.
