Reading Wrap-Up | January 2017

Now that’s its February it is time to do my January wrap up. I didn’t do two bad in the month of January since I finished reading 3 out of the 4 books on my tbr for the month. Below are my thoughts on the books that I read and my rating for them.

This is What Happiness Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith: I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. I liked the concept but I couldn’t get behind the writing. It was very slow pace and the love story wasn’t captivating. I know this is the first book in a series yet I not sure I’ll be picking up the second book.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. I love Perkins is writing which is why I was what I consider generous in its rating. Honestly, I didn’t like the man character in this book which is a bummer since I loved, the first book in the series, Anna and the French Kiss. I didn’t feel like the book was relatable at all and it just frustrated me to no end.

Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen: I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was actually a sad tale about a brother and sisters love for one another. It was a quick read and a good story but was nothing like Frozen.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I started this book and are halfway through, but I had to put it down because I just wasn’t into the writing or story. I decided to get it on audio book and hope to finish it in February. So far I am not a fan of the story or main character but hopefully that will change.

There you have it my January book wrap-up. Let me know in the comments below if you want a review on any of these books. Also, don’t forget to follow the blog for more post.

January TBR | 2017

I am so excited to be starting off this blog for the new year. I wanted to start this blog by sharing my January tbr. I don’t have that many books because I don’t want to overwhelm myself but I think I have some great reads for the month.

This is What Happiness Looks like by Jennifer E. Smith: This story follow a boy and a girl who start talking via email but the girl soon comes to find out that the boy is actually a movie star when he starts showing his next film in her small town.

I started this book last year but only read the first three chapters. I am trying to start off the year by finishing any books that I have left unfinished, which is probably like 5 books or so. Also, I love contemporary reads so I’m sure I’ll get through this pretty quickly.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: Honestly, all I know is that it is the second book in the Anna and the French Kiss series. I read Anna and the French Kiss last year at this time so I’m excited to pick up the next book in the series.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I heard about this book a while ago then saw the trailer for the movie that is coming out in February and knew that I had to read the book.

I believe it is about a girl that gets into a car accident with her friends but wakes up the next day and has to repeat the day she died.

The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen: I want to start getting into classic books and fairytales. And since its winter I thought this would be an appropriate read. All I know is that it is the story that Disney’s Frozen is based off. I’m thinking of getting the audiobook version and listening to it instead of reading it.

There you have it my January TBR! I will be doing a wrap up post and of course reviews on the books that I read this month. Below are the Goodreads links to each of the books mentioned above.
