January’s Bookshelf

I am a self-proclaimed Book Nerd! I LOVE reading so much that I seriously wish I could turn this hobby into a job!

Lately, I've started posting some covers of the books I've been reading on Instagram using the hashtag #luckyreads. So, I thought it would be fun to put a list together of what I've read at the end of each month in case you're a book nerd, too ūüôā

Alright, I started the year devouring Lauren Layne's Oxford Series. ¬†You guys…SUCH fun books! Lauren Layne knows how to write some steamy books {are you blushing yet?}

Irresistibly Yours, I Wish You Were Mine, and Someone Like You were just too fun to put down! I read these three books in just two and half days.  I'm anxiously awaiting June {for many reasons!} but especially to finish up the series with I Knew You Were Trouble!

Next up I read Colleen Hoover's November 9.  OMG Рhave you ever read any books by her? Honestly, she may be one of my favorite writers!

The premise of November 9 is that the two main characters meet up once a year {obvi on November 9th!} and have no contact the other 364 days! It'll suck you in…I promise! You may also love It Ends with Us by Colleen¬†{Gutwrenching} or Maybe Someday, {Adorable!} too.

I lightened things up a little after that one with The Boy is Back. Such a fun story told via texts, emails, and other modern technology! Really light read – perfect for summertime sittin' by a pool!

Do you ever read Taylor Jenkins Reid books?? You guys…you MUST.  She writes incredible characters!!! In the beginning of the school year, I read Maybe in Another Life {and LOVED it!} but this month, I read One True Loves and Forever, Interrupted – they were both magnificent!

Maybe in Another Life even sparked a “What If” convo with JB! I bet it'll get you thinking, too!

The One That Got Away has been on my Kindle wishlist for months and I finally felt like it was the right time to read it. ¬†It didn't disappoint – I love a great “Man, I should have…” story!

Next up was Alessandra Torre's latest, Love in Lingerie.  It's a racy book but so fun! I recently read Hollywood Dirt, Love Chloe, and Moonshot {which are not racy!} and I just love her style!

At the end of December, Amazon offered James Patterson's The Murder House for dirt cheap with their daily deals. I love reading JP books for a quick, suspenseful read.  Unfortunately, I did not love this one.  It was worth the two bucks I paid, but it certainly wasn't my favorite {and moved too slowly for a JP book, in my opinion!}

I snuck in another Lauren Layne book towards the end of the month.  I think Good Girl took about 3 hours to devour Рso fun!

The Marriage Lie may be my absolute favorite book I read this month! I snuck in the last few pages during the students' silent reading because I just couldn't wait till I got home to finish it up!!

As I was reading this suspenseful novel at the gym, I even gasped at one point – GASPED! Go read it! I'm not even a person who likes to be in suspense, but I loved this book!

I squeezed in one last book in January.  Good as Gone was free from Kindle's Lending Library.  It was okay Рnot fabulous, but entertaining at least.  Much of it didn't seem super realistic, but I suppose those romantic novels aren't always either, right?

That's a wrap for January books.  Because my Winter break didn't end until January 9th, I had LOTS of reading time! I don't usually read 13 books in a month but I'm trying to take more time out to read because I love it so much!
