January has passed clearly lol, we have made it into our first month of 2017 and this month has flown by for me. I am back at school now and am itching to read... just not the books I need to read for school.... oops. But I did get through several books. So how did I do on my list.... not great...
1. Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
2. The Inquasition by Taran Mathuru
3. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
4. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
5. Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson
I did get through my first book on my list. The review of this one will be up in February. I didn't get through any of the others... mainly because the list of people waiting for it from the library was longer than I was at home. I am waiting on ebooks now so they are still on my list just shifted around a bit now that I have moved on through the month. Check back in next week for what is on my February TBR.
Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses Book #1)
By Sarah J. Maas
When I read this I went in blind, I knew relatively nothing about it, I just heard how amazing it was. I thought it was pretty good, until I heard that it was a Beauty and the Beast Retelling! Then oh baby oh, it got 10x better for me. It seems more like a romance set in a fantasy world then just straight up fantasy to me. But hey that isn't the worst thin in the world now is it?
Illuminae (Book #1 The Illuminae Files)
By Amie Kaufman
As I said in my review that came out Monday, this was my first Sci-Fi book in a really long time, it did not disappoint. With a very strong, okay a Bad-ass female protagonist named Kady, and a broken Artificial Intelligence named AIDAN they clean up the mess left by higher ups.
Witch and Wizard
By James Patterson
I did a reread of Witch and Wizard, I have reread the first few books a few times but never finished the series. I am hoping this time I will actually be able to finish the series. I have never felt like there was anything wrong with it, other things just come up first.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
By Stieg Larsson
This book, so this book came out in 2008... I wouldn't say I have been trying to read it since then but I have tried to get through it several times.... I just don't think it is going to happen. I made it about 4 and a half hours into the audiobook and I don't really have an interest in following through to the end. So I think this one is going to have to go back onto the DNF pile where it came from.
The Race (Issac Bells #4)
By Clive Cussler
It is 1910, the age of flying machines is still in its infancy, and newspaper publisher Preston Whiteway is offering $50,000 for the first daring aviator to cross America in less than fifty days. He is even sponsoring one of the prime candidates-an intrepid woman named Josephine Frost-and that's where Bell, chief investigator for the Van Dorn Detective Agency, comes in.
Frost's violent-tempered husband has just killed her lover and tried to kill her, and he is bound to make another attempt. Bell has tangled with Harry Frost before; he knows that the man has made his millions leading gangs of thieves, murderers, and thugs in every city across the country. He also knows that Frost won't be only after his wife, but after Whiteway as well. And if Bell takes the case . . . Frost will be after him, too.
A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2)
By Sarah J. Maas
Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
A lover of words, reading and writing.
