January 2016 Challenge Recap

January Challenge Recap

Originally I was going to do just one big monthly wrap-up post that included my challenge progress, but then I decided it would be too long so I'll be doing my challenges separately.


 
I only read 1 debut this month, which was The Distance From A to Z by Natalie Blitt. While I enjoyed it, I didn't quite love it like others did. You can see my thoughts HERE. (3 stars)




I only managed to finish 1 series this month and that was The Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross. I read final book, The Girl With the Windup Heart and I really enjoyed it! I loved being back with Finley, Griffin, and crew.

 

  My series this month was the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I really enjoyed this series a lot! I can't say I fell for The Darkling like so many others did, but he was definitely intriguing. My heart always belonged to Mal, even thought I adored Sturmhond.

Thank you to Wendy for bookpushing them on me!


 
I did really well with this challenge. I was determined to make 2016 the year of books I had been wanting to read and I ended up reading 13!

    1. Thanks Shannon! Oh goodness! I loved Sturmhond too! He was a great friend to Alina, but I never really saw him as more. Mal was just wonderful and I loved how dedicated he was to her.

    1. Thanks Wendy! I'm so happy I did too! That story is going to stay with me for a long time I think! I really enjoyed Kady's series. The first two books are good, but the last two are GREAT.
