January Wrap Up!

1. Heir Of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.
I was not a huge fan of this book in the series. I felt like I really had to get myself through it without dying of boredom… sorry to all of you that liked it but I didn’t completely dislike it. I gave it a 2.5 out of 5 stars

2. Sadie by Courtney Summers

Oh my goodness me was this book a complete success. I heard so many things about the audiobook so I listened to it while I was at work. When a book hits me deep and really makes me feel something.. that is an amazing story. There was so much reality and emotion that for some moments I had a hard time listening to it while I was working and had to finish it at home. This book is worth all the hype and more. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!

3. The Librarian Of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe
I can’t believe this is the first time I have heard of Dita Kraus. The Librarian Of Auschwitz showed us again the awful reality of what the prisoners of Auschwitz had to go through and one girls mission to spread the joy of books… even if she can only get her hands on a few. Books were forbidden so any book would be a lovely sight to a prisoner. I do enjoy reading books about this time(not meaning that I enjoy reading about the pain the Holocaust brought but I like to read about history) and I am very happy to have read a survivors story. I gave this book 4.5 out of 5 stars

4. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
To me, this was sincerely a true mystery/thriller. There are some things included that seem to be a big stereotype in mystery themed books that I don’t like but other than that this story took me by surprise. The Silent Patient follows a woman who one night just shoots her husband in the face for what reason no one can tell and has not spoken a word since. Wow, I’ve already forgotten the main characters name… who is our therapist and is trying to make it his goal to get her to speak again. I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars

5. The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
I just randomly started listening to this audiobook one day at work just because of how short it was. I was taken a little bit by surprise at how invested I became in the story. For a few moments there, I had to make myself go back to working because I was just focused on listening. I won’t give too much detail about it but fans of poetry would enjoy this book very much. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars

6. Severance By Ling Ma
I was left with so many questions by the end of this book! Severance was very different when it comes to other stories I read.. like most books don’t make me feel like the author forgot to finish the story and just published what she/he had already written! That ending just made me want to toss the book at someone’s head. This was like the first book I read this month so I believe I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars.
