January Book Reviews

Happy Monday y'all! I am so excited to share my thoughts on the books I read during this month. I was hoping to have one more to add to this post but I haven't quite finished it yet so I will talk about that one in February's book post.

Don't forget to comment and tell me your favorite book that you read this month!

I have so many thoughts about this book, and I almost don't know where to begin. I can't say it is the most exciting book I have ever read and the plot is rather random but I can't help but give John Green a round of applause for this book because I have never seen a book explain obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) so well. I get all the feels thinking about this book. Again, not the most exciting book, but a rather quick read and if you want to understand OCD and Anxiety from an author who has clearly experienced it himself, I recommend this book!

Rate: 5 Stars!

Y'all already know I love all things Paris and this book had the whimsical and magical feel of the city and the writing was simple and elegant. I didn't however find it all that exciting to read. It bored me a tad at times. It is a historical fiction book about Ernest Hemingway and his first wife. I always struggle with this genre as is, but this one was at times tough to finish regardless of the beautiful setting and writing. 

Rate: 3 Stars!

Okay I have a lot of mixed thoughts on this one. It started out SO good! Like I could NOT put this one down for the first half of the book, but the thrill plateaued somewhere after the half way mark. This book is about five high school students who get detention but one of them dies in detention. After the police deem the death a murder by one of his fellow classmates, an investigation begins to try and find which of the four classmates killed him. I really didn't see the end coming which is always a sign of a good thriller. I highly recommend if you want a quick easy to read thriller!

Rate: 4 Stars!

I couldn't get into this one. Did any of y'all ever read it? Maybe I will re-try another time because it has gotten great reviews but something about the authors writing style didn't hook me.

Well there you have it! What have you been reading lately? I will talk to you again on Wednesday!
