January Wrap Up (2015)


I'm a bit proud of myself because I read 15 books this month including a short story. I enjoyed every book I read this month! They all made me happy one way or another.


House of Hades by Rick Riordan 
It was a great continuation to the series lot's of crazy things happen along the many journey's the heroines had to go through to get through it all. I must say it made me laugh, and also made my heartwarm up, and it also made me sad at times. I am looking forward to seeing how the series ends in the next book. Till then I recommend this book, and the series plus the first series. So you could know exactly how they got to were they are in this book. Love these books so much
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell  
This was my first Rainbow Rowell book, and I'm just glad I picked this book up. The second I finished it it made me want to re-read it. It's late so I can't so I just re-read the last chapter, for now. I believe this is now one of my top favorites. I just enjoyed the story, and characters. I shall definitely be reading more of Rainbow Rowell's books. And will definitely re-read this one.(:
Rockaholic by C.J Skuse

Ms. Maddox (Short Story) by Jamie McGuire *Cover on edit was made by me.
Loved it.
Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks 
 So. I finished reading this book yesterday night or today in the early morning. And I must say I enjoyed it. It was a refreshing Nicholas Sparks story, not that I've read a lot of Sparks, but this book was good. And I read it before watching the movie. So, then I sat to watch the movie (all-excited) and my heart shattered. I mean I knew they were going to change the bits in the movie, but they just no. They made the story a lot more about the romance them anything else. It's just no. If you have watched the movie, and have not read the book. Take the time to read the book. It's way better then the movie. 
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L James 
Yes. I did read Fifty Shades of Grey, and I am not embarrassed to say I rather enjoyed it for the most part. Their relationship is odd, but it seems to work for the most part or at least it they seem to make it work for the most part. What I really enjoyed about this book was the odd story relationship, you could say the romance or in better words the "more" behind all the sexual tension, and events. I am definitely looking forward to seeing how this relationship continues to grow especially after that ending. I could see why people dislike this book or even like it. I found it entertaining, and hilarious at times. ( Their emails to one another. ) Overall I rate this an entertaining read; I have it a five star in goodreads, but this book is beyond perfect. I just found it really entertaining. I would not recommend it to underage readers for explicit reasons, as you may already know. ^^
Fifty Shades Darker & Fifty Shades Freed by E.L James 
I've how now finished the Fifty Shades Trilogy. I must say that Fifty Shades Darker was possibly my favorite, due to the "more" it's like they actually start to develop a relationship beyond just sex, and you got to see more of the "more." And I thought it was cute. Fifty Shade of Freed on the other hand was a little ehh... In the beginning. I mean I loved where their relationship ended up, but it had more sex scenes then necessary, well the description aspects of them, but then again it is an erotic series. I just love seeing their relation grow beyond the bedroom or any room or place they are in at the heat of the moment. But once it got more towards the end I liked those parts. The ending puts a smile on my face how far everything has changed, and not changed. BUT I LOVED THE EXTRA: MEET FIFTY SHADES. The story through Mr. Grey's eyes! I love his thoughts, and dialogue. And E.L. James ended it with "That's all... For now." I'm hoping it's not a tease. I wish to read the books through Grey's eyes. Overall: I enjoyed the series. I'd wouldn't recommend it to everyone, but it's not bad in my opinion beyond all the sex is the "more"
Landline by Rainbow Rowell 
Landline by Rainbow Rowell. Was a very interesting read. What I liked about it was the life aspect of it. It all seemed real aside from the "magic phone" aspect of it. How work and things got in between love and marriage. This was a refreshing read, and quite funny at times. I would have liked to seen a bit more of how their present relationship was, but I did enjoy all the flashbacks to how things were, and how things changed. I would re-read it again some time in the future. Rainbow Rowell sure does now how to write. Looking forward to reading more of her work.
Obsidian (Lux Book One) by Jennifer L Armentrout

Onyx (Lux Book Two) by Jennifer L Armentrout

Opal (Lux Book Three) by Jennifer L Armentrout

Shadows ( Lux Prequel ) Jennifer L Armentrout
