Book Report: January 2016

The first month of January has rushed past us! At least in my opinion. I haven’t gotten as many books read as I would have liked, mainly because I haven’t been feeling too good – I’ve had to deal with a lot of stress-related issues and such. But it’s better now.

  • Book of the Month: I didn’t think I could like a book in this series more than I liked Scarlet. I was so bloody wrong. This book had me screaming and crying and laughing and face-palming all at once!
  • Surprise of the Month: This was the kind of book that it took quite some time to get into and feel like you could actually finish – but once you got past that “possible DNF” point it was really, really good!
  • Worst of the Month/Disappointment of the Month: Way too predictable, way too much focus on the romance, terrible ending compared to the first book. I’m actually thinking of lowering the rating of this…
