❄️ January Wrap Up ❄️


January was an enjoyable reading month for me. I read mostly mostly mysteries and thrillers and branched out a smidge too. I even managed to squeeze in a nonfiction booked. 


Favorites

📖 The Dark Hours - author Michael Connelly continues to prove he’s the master of the police procedural. 


📖 Five Decembers- a sweeping saga set against the backdrop of WWII. This is part mystery, part historical fiction, and part romance. You won’t read anything else like this. 


📖Chasing the Boogeyman - a mystery novel disguised as a true crime book. Really cleaver! 


📖 Some Choose Darkness - a gifted young woman who helps solve tough cases discovers secrets about her own past after her father dies and she must take his place as lawyer for a notorious criminal. Great main character and lots of twists! 


Really Enjoyed

📖 Ink and Shadows - features a mystery-solving former librarian turned bookseller. How could I not like it? Thank you to Kensington Press and TLC Book Tours for the gifted copy. 


🎧 When We Were Them - an emotion-filled teen novel of friendship and love. Thank you to Simon and Schuster Audio for the gifted copy. 


📖 A Line to Kill - the third book in the series in which author Anthony Horowitz has cast himself as the exasperated sidekick to a surly investigator. This series is lots of fun. 


📖 Last Seen Alive - the victim that got away from a notorious serial killer must confront him again. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the digital review copy. 


📖 Carnegie’s Maid - historical fiction novel about an Irish immigrant who inspires Andrew Carnegie to become one of the world’s greatest philanthropists. 


🎧 Audience-ology: How Moviegoers Shape the Films We Love- author Kevin Goetz provides a peek behind the scenes at the art and science audience movie testing. Really interesting-especially for movie buffs! Thank you to Simon and Schuster Audio for the gifted copy. 


🎧 The Ballad of Laurel Springs - a multi-generational novel about the women and secrets of an East Tennessee family. One tragic event has heartbreaking effects on generations. Thank you to Simon and Schuster Audio for the gifted copy. 


Just Ok

📖 Undermoney - a financial thriller about crime and money laundering. I liked the premise of the story, but the execution was meh. Thank you Scribner’s for the gifted copy.
