Books Read = 18

Whoops. Posting my month in review after the new month is almost halfway over.Β πŸ˜‚Β Anyways! The first month of the new year was a success in some ways. I didn’t get much reviewing done but I decided to focus solely on reading instead. I knocked out three review books (six in total really, if we’re counting DNFs — those mini-reviews are still to come) andΒ finally got back into the Toby Daye series reading 3-5. I’m on a bit of an urban fantasy roll but February has shown a bit of a focus on mysteries. We’ll see if that continues. πŸ™‚

36119984Best of the Month:Β Lady Killer 2 by JoΓ«lle JonesΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
I remember stumbling upon the first installment of this at the library and not expecting a whole lot but it was such enormous fun. The second installment only gets better.

Least Favorite: Through This House (October Daye #4.5) by Seanan McGuireΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…34110508
This was only a short story but it was definitely my least “installment” of the Toby series to date. I’m just glad there wasn’t an entire novel centered around this storyline.

35506547Biggest Surprise: Long Way Down by Jason ReynoldsΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
I’d been hearing all the raves about this book and I’m always intrigued by anything verse so I gave it a whirl. Wow. What an incredible story.

Biggest Disappointment: Sourdough by Robin SloanΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…33916024
This still ended up being a decent read but the start of this was so incredibly interesting and fun but the second half of this story was a completely different sort and I was ultimately pretty disappointed.

  1. Wow Bonnie you are on a roll with you reading! I only managed to read 7 books in Jan, but like you I have been DNF’ing quite a lot. And for once, I seem to be on top of my review books too (for now!). I hope Feb is a great reading month for you too! πŸ™‚
