January was a pretty so-so month for the books I selected. Six Tinder Weeks was by far my favorite book. The other books I read in January were not horrible, they just lacked a little extra something, mostly character development, that would have added that sparkle I was looking for that would reel me in and hold my attention until the very end.
I am looking forward to Linda Fairstein’s next Alex Cooper book and I also look forward to writing a stellar 5-star review to go with it. It still smarts to have given Deadfall such a low rating, but 3 doughnuts is not the worst rating and I know Linda has some exciting things ahead for Alex and the gang.
In January I discovered the app Libby. It is through Overdrive, but I prefer the look and ease of Libby. If you have a library card, this is a great way to rent audiobooks and read books on your Kindle (or you can read on your phone!). If the book you want is not available, you can place a hold on it and as soon as it’s available, the folks at Libby will automatically check the item out to you! And there’s no chance of accruing fines because when the 2 week loan period is up, the item simply disappears from your shelf! Sorry…I feel like I am at work, enthusiastically encouraging our patrons to download Libby ASAP. It is truly that neat of an app 🙂
I am excited about February! Things are looking up and I just finished one amazing book, Liars, by Frances Vick and I am almost finished with The Wife Between Us (it’s so intriguing!). Here are the books I am excited to read this month:
Thank you for taking some time to read my blog. I appreciate you and I hope you have a beautiful week.
