So January has been one if my best reading months EVER! and I actually liked most of the books I read this month, which is not something that happens often. I’m very picky with books cause I have like a million pet peeves but I can honestly say that I enjoyed most of the books on this list. I’m going to arrange them in descending order so the book I enjoyed the most is first and the one I enjoyed the least is last.
- Furies of Calderon. by Jim Butcher
This book absolutely surprised me. I haven’t read much high or epic fantasy and its usually daunting for me because they are so long and so involving but the moment I opened this I was lost. I read this in one sitting , I literally could not put it down and I usually don’t like books with multiple perspectives but I loved all the perspectives in this and all of them were relevant so… read this.
2. Queen Takes King. by Joely Sue Buckhart
Our young vampire queen takes on Leviathan, King of the Depths. Amazing.
3. Queen Takes Queen. by Joely Sue Buckhart
Vampire queen takes another queen. It was epic.
4. Queen Takes Knights
First in the Our Vampire Queen Series. It was really good. This was my first revers harem story and I’m sure I opened Pandora’s box. I’m addicted now. but unfortunately I haven’t found one as good as this one. It might be because it was my first so I just hold to a really high standard. Everyone should read this if you’re just looking for something light and fun to read. It has a really good plot for this kind of book so you wont be disappointed.
5. Queen Takes Rook.
This one was just ok to me. Nothing spectacular.
6. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
For all who read my previous post you know that I have tasked myself with reading a classic a month this year and so this was the classic for January. It was superrrr short and nothing like the movie. Its super bizarre and kind of sad but you also realized that its just the cycle of life, even if it was backwards in this case.
7. Blood and Chocolate. by Annette Curtis Klause
It was pretty good I guess. It was the first book I read this year so I cant really remember but I know I like how the story ended. You thought you knew how the story was going to end but the author is like “psych!”
8. King of Hel. by Grace Draven
This story left no impression on me. It means absolutely nothing to me but it was short and unique I guess.
9. Golden. by Joely Sue Buckhart
When I stated this I saw the number of pages and I was ok this is pretty short and as I read I was like well the pages are going but I feel like there’s still so much story to be written and that’s still how I felt when it was over.
10. Nightshade. by Andrea Cremer
The thing about this is I thought it was ok while I was reading. I stopped once when I got super annoyed but I continued and I thought it was fine. Then I got to the end only to discover that its actually a series and not a stand alone like I originally thought. I know, that was my mistake but I was still pissed. I didn’t want to keep reading about any of these people but I wanted to know how everything ended and I didn’t get that. if I had known I wouldn’t have read the book at all so I don’t like the book cause it was a waste of my time .
