Ang Reads: The January Edition

Whelp.
January is over, folks.
Just. Like. That.
Every year, I attempt to write an end of the year bookish review.
Yet, every December, I can't remember what the heck I even read.
Too many books.
Not enough brain cells.
Thus, THE PLAN was formed.
(But really, what's life without PLANS.)
Each month I'll post what I've read.
Tell you what I loved the most.
And by the end of the year,
 I *might* actually be able
to pick a favorite.
Ideals of grandeur?
Ain't no doubt,
but let's roll with it.
Without further ado, I give you, my January reads.
(a * denotes it's a reread)
6. The Fault in Our Stars
(click here for a review)

Ain't they purdy?

Now.
Since you're forcing me to play favorites,
I'd have to pick:
 Oh. My. Gosh.
But really.
This book had me rolling on the floor
and swooning left and right
and overall I LOVED this book.
LOVED IT.
If you like yourself some chick lit,
don't walk, RUN to the store,
and pick up this wonderment.
You shall not regret this choice.
Pinky promise.

IF, however, chick lit ain't your thang then
*maybe* you're looking for a supernatural
adventure story with a creepy twist!
If so, look no further than:
Hollow City is the sequel to
Miss. Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.
I adored the first book.
In fact, back in 2011,
 I wrote the epic fangirl of fangirling reviews.
Let me put this out there,
I'm a standalone kind of gal.
I'm not very patient with on going series
that take five billion years to read.
Normally, it's tough to sell me on the positives of a second book.
I get ragey & cranky & start screaming
about the integrity of the story &
will they please stop trying to bleed me of all my money
& blah blah blah blah... boooooring.
Having said that,
Hollow City is not only an amazing book
but it is BETTER THAN it's predecessor in all aspect.
And it's got me so excited about the third book
I want to stab myself in the eyeball.

Annnnd,
on that note,
ENOUGH about me.

What have you read so far this year?
And recommendations?
Did you read any of these books?
TELL ME ALL THE THINGS.
You know you wanna.

  1. Did you pick up Sarah Addison Allen's new book yet? (I think we had a conversation about her once, that we both really liked her work…) I'm reading Lost Lake now and really loving it. :) I'll have to check out that Sophie Kinsella book. Heard so many good things about her but never read any of her books. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. Awesome list of books for the month! Hollow Cityyyyyyyyyy! (Still #4 in line at the library GAH) I love me some Kinsella. I sure hope she releases another one soon. And that it's better than Wedding Night. Are you reading that soon? *waits for the disappointment*

Hey, you. Yeah, you. You know you've got something to say. I'd love to know what it is. So just type in the little white box and let's talk. Don't be shy. I swear I don't bite.
