This is a monthly feature on my blog where I will state my intentions to read certain books, then cross my fingers and hope it actually works out.
First, let’s look at what I read in January. I will link to my reviews of the books. Some of these books were on my January TBR; some were not 🙂
- Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
- Imperfect Courage by Jessica Honegger
- Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
- Circling the Sun by Paula McClain
“I refuse to watch the movie of this book until after I have read it! And I really want to watch the movie, so I’m finally going to read it. This is another of my choices for the Book Challenge by Erin I’m pretty sure that my whole family already read this book back when it came out and was really popular. I am expecting lots of plot twists since it came out around the time that Gone Girl did and I had the feeling that there were similarities between the two. It’s about a woman who rides the same train every day, casually spying on a perfect couple as she passes by until one day something shocking happens that changes everything! Should be a good one.” -quoted from my January TBR post. I didn’t get to this one last month.
This book is “an interactive romance novel.” I found this book because of the Popsugar prompt to read a choose your own adventure book. I am so excited to see where my choices will take me! According to the description, there seem to be three different men that I can end up with, and I can travel to Egypt, Paris, and London. Of course I could also end up destitute and on the streets. Wish me luck!
This book is one of the Kindle First Read choices this month. If you are a Prime member, you get one free new release each month and you should make sure you are taking advantage of this opportunity. I have found some excellent books this way! This book will officially be released in March, but Prime members can have early access. Bird research, a mysterious child, Shakespeare! Who could resist trying this book?!?
This is another book that I discovered because of the Popsugar prompt to read a choose your own adventure book. Meanwhile is unique as it is written as a choose your own adventure style comic book. I am excited to read it and see where my choice of ice cream flavor will lead me. I think there’s a time machine, too, and I love time travel!
I read Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10 last year and really enjoyed it. It felt like an Agatha Christie book. I used to read Agatha Christie all the time when I was in high school, so I am really looking forward to reading this one. This book follows Hal, who receives an inheritance and then grows suspicious and begins to investigate.
If I have time this month, I am definitely going to squeeze this book in: the last book in the Throne of Glass series. OMG! OMG! I can’t wait. Will Rowan save Aelin? Will they win the war against Erawan? Will all the friends and frenemies reunite and save the world together? What’s going to happen? The suspense is too much! I might have to start reading it tonight 🙂
What are you reading? Have any good book recommendations?
Have you read any of the books on my TBR? What did you think?
