Volume two left me on the edge waiting for Vol 3, don’t want to share much because it is the 2nd volume, but there is a lot going on. All I have to say is if you like action and fun pick it up.

This book was just the right mixture of creepy and interesting. I read this book in a single day. If you like books that are creepy, eerie, or are a commentary on the human soul pick up this book!

This collection of poetry was enjoyable and I nearly loved every single one.

This was a fun sequel to The Rosie Project, I will say at times it seemed like the characters weren’t acting like themselves. Don’t let that stop you from picking up this short series, I throughly enjoyed it. I was connected to the characters throughout both books and was always cheering for them to get a happy ending because there were quite a few hiccups.

The Grownup is fun and fast paced, it really made me think. I have to say the ending to this book messed with my mind a bit. I highly recommend this thriller since it is short,”fun”, and under 100 pages.

I picked this up mainly to learn more about Stephen King, it was a mixture of his life and writing advice. I personally did not pick it up for the writing advice, while it is very good, it broke up the story of his life for me.

This was a mixture of short letters in the last few days of WWII. Some of the letters were very enjoyable while others didn’t really tell me much about life at the end of the war. Some just happened to be written then, but did not discuss it.

I have learned something about myself this month, I do not enjoy love poems. If you love…love poems it would be a nice little collection to add to your TBR. Side note, without the dust jacket it is gorgeous!

The story was disjoined and just ridiculous. I did not enjoy at all.


 

Well, those are the books I read in January. I have to say I am proud of what I read especially since this month was very busy for me. I hope you all had a great reading month as well.

Goals

December Reading Goal

This month I am dedicating my reading to finishing a few series I am nearly done with. Luckily for me that is only two series; The Raven Boys series and The Rosie Project duology (unless there are more coming out in the future I am unaware of). Between those two series I have only three books to read, which cross my fingers I can get through all of them between now and December 31st.


Books I have Left

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion


From the books I have read in these series I am really excited to continue. I am very curious where Maggie Stiefvater is going to bring Blue and the gang next. They always seem to get themselves in the oddest types of situations, then you throw in the paranormal aspect and a true adventure begins. Additionally, I am very much looking forward to continue following along with Rosie and Don romance. I have high hopes for those too.
