Reading Recap | January 2019

It's really nice to have some extra time to get caught up on my stack of books needing to be read. I joined Book of the Month last year and for some reason just let them accumulate on my end table. But I managed to crank out 5 last month and I'm happy with that number.

The Far Field by Madhuri Vijay (BOTM)   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was Vijay's debut novel and I was pleasantly surprised by it. I got caught up in it for sure but didn't really like how the ending wrapped up. (I think I needed more closure.)

Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough (BOTM)  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a great little thriller with lots of turns. Great character development. I figured everything out closer to the end of the book, but it was still a great read. Will definitely be reading more of her books in the future.

The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne (BOTM)  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

THIS BOOK. Have you ever read a book that you didn't want to end? That was this book for me. I kept putting it down and pacing myself. I laughed, I cried. So stop what you're doing and go read this book. You can thank me later. (BOTM rated this the 2017 Book of the Year.)

Maid by Stephanie Land (BOTM)  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I truly enjoyed this book.  I thought Stephanie wrote really well and it was heartbreaking at times. Glad she found her silver lining.

Snowbound by Blake Crouch  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I had read Dark Matter back in 2017 so when I saw Snowbound at the library I added it to my list. I really need to start reading more of his books. This one was suspenseful and definitely a page turner.
