January 2017 Reading Wrap Up

In January I read five books and here is a list of them and some of my thoughts about them.

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer - 3/5 STARS
I was really disappointed in this book.  I didn't like the characters and I thought some of the descriptions in it were boring.  I did a full review of this book, which you can find here.

Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy book 2) by J.R. Ward - 4/5 STARS
I really enjoyed this book and I liked Axe and Elise's story.  I can't wait to read more about the other trainees in the next books in this series.

Solanin by Inio Asano - 5/5 STARS
I was shocked by how much I ended up loving this book.  It's such a great book with a lot of powerful themes.  I highly recommend reading it.  I also did a full review of it, which you can find here.  

A Curious Tale of the In-Between by Lauren DeStefano - 4/5 STARS
I thought this was a fun book to read.  I loved the writing style of it just like I've loved the writing style of all of Lauren DeStefano's books. 

Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard - 4/5 STARS
I really liked this book. The main theme of this book is about friendships and the trials that come with them.  I really liked the friendship between the three main characters and I'd highly recommend this if you're looking for a female friendship driven story.

What books did you read in the month of January?


  1. Great wrap up, I so need to read beautiful broken things, I haven't read the chemist but I've not heard very good things about it so I don't really intend to.

    1. Thanks! Beautiful Broken Things is really great and I hope you like it too when you read it.

  2. I'm sad to see you didn't like The Chemist. I have no immediate plans to read it, but I do want to eventually. I keep hearing not so great things about it. Beautiful Broken Things sounds fantastic! I need to check that one out.

    Thanks for linking up with Saturday Situation!

    1. Beautiful Broken Things is really good and I hope you like The Chemist more than I did.
