January ended with me reading a total of 5 books. I read a mix of Young Adult and Adult Literature, and enjoyed them all. I'll be reviewing them shortly. Caleb doesn't always like to nap during the day, so reading hasn't been as plentiful as I had expected. You know what else I never expected? How much laundry one little baby can go through... Seriously, his hamper is always full! He'll be 2 months old tomorrow, and growing so fast!
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor 5/5 Stars
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd 4/5 Stars
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent 4/5 Stars
The Evolution of Mara Dyer 3/5 Stars
Somewhere in France by Jennifer Robinson 5/5 Stars
My favorite book read this month was Maybe One Day. This one releases in March, and will sure to have rave reviews. It certainly pulled at my heart strings. Zoe and Olivia are best friends, who were always inseparable. Olivia is suddenly diagnosed with Leukemia, and both of their worlds are rocked. Zoe tries to be positive, and refuses to think the worst while Olivia has her mother hovering over her.
The Evolution of Mara wasn't as enjoyable as the first book. I found this one too long, but I will read the final book. This book left me with too many questions.
I'm currently reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Rigg's. I went into this one with no expectations and I'm really impressed with how much I'm enjoying it. When the book was first released, I remember seeing the cover on many blogs but I never paid much attention to it, with the sequel being released, I wanted to see what this one was about.
I'm hoping to get more reading time in February, but as long as I'm reading, i'll be happy. I have a wide variety of books I want to get to, but I usually pick my next read depending on my mood. I won't tell you how long it took me to write the post, Caleb is finally napping but for how long...I'm not sure.
Happy February Reading!
