January 2021 TBR!


Happy New Year, BookNerds! 2020 is finally over and done with, and 2021 has begun! We are all hoping it will be a better year, i’m sure, but I wish you all safety and support throughout this year. So January will be a quiet month for me… hopefully, meaning I should have time to get through my whole tbr – which is smaller than usual. This month I have some ARC’s and psychology reads to consume my thoughts, so how about we dive into what books will be kicking off my New Year!


We Lie With Death (The Reborn Empire #2), by Devin Madson. So I read book 1 for a blogtour: We Ride The Storm – and loved it. So when I saw the ARC for book 2 going I had to request it! And the lovely Nazia (@Gambit589) from Orbitbooks sent me this beautiful ARC. This epic sequel drops this month so I thought I would kick my januray off with this read and dive into this gritty book.

Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman. *Gasp* It is not a fantasy book… I know! So since I started my Psychology course at uni I have been recommended lots of fascinating reads and since I have a free-ish January I thought I’d get around to reading some! Starting with Kahnmen’s book that delves into our thinking system! This one has to be read with a critical eye, but it seems like it will be very interesting!

The Lucifer Effect, by Philip Zimbardo. Much like Kahneman’s book, Zimbardo’s was also recommended to me on my course. Another book to read with a critical eye, but an interesting one focusing on how our environment could turn even the best of us into something evil.

The Poppy War, by RF Kuang. Alas, I cannot stray from my beloved genre for long! This beautiful book was bought for me as a gift for Christmas- Bookhaul here: 2020 Christmas Haul. I have heard a LOT about this book, and now I can finally get into it and see what all this gushing is about!

ThreadNeedle, by Cari Thomas. So I actually received a widget for this Netgalley eARC, and since it drops in 2021 I have yet to read it! But I plan to do so this month, and see what it is all about. The premise of binding magic sounds very fascinating and I cannot wait to dive into this one!

The Betrayals, by Bridget Collins. So I have yet to read The Binding (it always seems to be loaned out from my library *sigh*), but this one sounded so fascinating that I had to request the eARC on Netgalley! It sounds promising, magical and mysterious, so I look forward to settling into this one too!


So, that is my planned tbr for this month (Let’s see if I stick to it)! I’m looking forward to each of these reads, they all sound fantastic in their own ways and seem like a great way to start the year!

Are any of these on your tbr/or have you already read them? Let Me Know!


Happy New Year And Happy Reading, BookNerds!πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ“š

    • Indeed, a very unethical test but the results do pose a lot of interesting questions! I look forward to reading about it in more depth (There’s also the opposing/but connected belief- that anyone can become a hero). Happy New Year! πŸ₯³πŸ₯°πŸ’œπŸΎ

  1. Happy new year! Looks like you’ve got a really good TBR set for January. πŸ˜€ I’ve got Thinking, Fast and Slow on my physical TBR shelf, but I’ve not got round to reading it just yet. Want to read the Poppy war as well. Looking forward to hear what you think of the books!

  2. I’ve heard the greatest things about The Poppy War, but I’m the worst at starting series lol. I received The Betrayals for Christmas – really excited to start that! I hope you love all of these, Kat πŸ₯°πŸ’œ
