{What I Read} November 2017 – January 2018

Instead of doing a monthly recap, I started these quarterly ones. Here’s what I’ve read the past few months…

I had a pretty good few months of reading. By far the most I’ve read in awhile. Lots of great books, and I read more holiday-themed books than ever.

What I Read

     

     

    

The one that became an all time favorite: On Second Thought

The one that pleasantly surprised me: Forever is the Worst Long Time

The one I couldn’t put down: Behind Her Eyes

The one that was a big disappointment: Undeclared

The one with a new favorite author: First Step Forward

The one that was way too freaking long: The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

The one with my favorite cover: Hello, Sunshine

Of all the books I read in the past 3 months, only 5 of them were 5 star reads. That’s unusual for me. It’s kind of disappointing that many of the books I’ve read lately are just meh. Especially when 3 of them were on my highly anticipated list. But, I did discover two new authors to love – Liora Blake and Sharon Bolton. And I rediscovered my love for romance novels with a few of these books. Overall not too bad!
