January was, all around, a pretty decent reading month. I was excited about several of the six I finished but *sadly* was let down more than not (five of the six). It’s all good though, they were still enjoyable.
My favorite read in January was The Fly By – written by a group of waterfowlers known as “More Than A Calling.” You can read more about their Christian message and the book itself in a previous blogpost I shared –> here!
Oddly enough, my least favorite was Skyward by Brandon Sanderson and that was the one I was most excited about. I blogged my review/thoughts, if any Sanderson fans would like to come fight me at: Brown Dog Book Review: “S” – Skyward.
I’m three letters down on my Brown Dog Book Review: A to Z Challenge with 23 more to go. I didn’t write a “T” post (Tainted by Morgan L. Busse) and I’m not sure if I’ll make it to it or not but it was a semi-solid steampunk read. I personally didn’t care for the main characters’ relationship – it seemed to start on toxic footing and I lost interest pretty quick. **Shrug.**
I reviewed White Stag and chatted about my expectations vs. what it turned out to be like. It wasn’t a “let down” per say but it didn’t blow my socks off.
There’s drafts for both of January’s adult lit reads –> Where the Forest Meets the Stars and The Vanishing <– but, again, not sure if I’ll post them or not. Both were (3) star reads that left me wanting. *Yet another shrug.* I definitely DID review and blog my feelings on Where the Forest Meets the Stars –> here.
It seems like I can’t settle down long enough to really get invested in a book lately. Maybe that’s because my January reads all sort of averaged out? I’m ready for a book to come along and hurt me, ya know?
As always, glad y’all are here.
