January 2019 Wrap-Up!

January was a pretty good reading month for me, though I wished I had read one more book. Netflix dragged me in and I ended up binging a lot of shows, though I still managed to read 8 books! Some of them were really good and some were meh, but I'm excited to talk about all of them!

Title: The Light We Seek
Author: Katie May
Rating: 3.5 // 5 stars
I really enjoyed this installment in this series. I found that it was both interesting and still maintained quite a bit of the humor that initially drew me to it. I will say that I wish there had been more humor in this one. There was quite a bit more action, though, which was interesting. I didn't find there to be too much character arc development compared to the first book, but if you look you can see where different characters are changing. Overall, I enjoyed this read and it was pretty quick. I'm excited for the next one.

Title: Milk and Honey
Author: Rupi Kaur
Rating: 4 // 5 stars
I thought this was a very moving journey from page one all the way until the end. I'm not big into poetry and this is only the third poetry collection I've ever read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some poems I enjoyed more than others but that's just how it goes. I'm left feeling inspired and with the knowledge that you can look for sweetness in any part of life, good or bad.

Title: The Burn Zone
Author: Renee Linnell
Rating: 4 // 5 stars

Title: Windwitch
Author: Susan Dennard
Rating: 5 // 5 stars

Title: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life
Author: Bryan Lee O'Malley
Rating: 4 // 5 stars
This was super fun to read. I definitely think it was also quicker to read because I've seen the movie so many times. Reading this just made me realize how true to the original story the movie is. Some scenes were taken from this exactly and it was really nice to see! I also loved revisiting this story since it's one of my favorites. Definitely going to try reading the next ones!

Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
