Books (January 2018)

Happy Monday! I took an unexpected break from blogging the past couple weeks (that's a post for another day!), but I am back! Today I am sharing the books I read in January...

I read four books this month... one were just ok and the other three were pretty good. I am also working through a 365 day devotional this year that I included at the end of this post because it is so good.

 here is my January reading...

Truly Madly Guilty was my first book of the year and honestly it was just ok. A few people recommended this to me and I have some friends who loved it so maybe it was just me?! The story revolves around three couples who are at a barbeque together and something happens so the chapters jump back and forth between the couples, the day of the barbeque etc. I was just trying to get through it to find out what happened at the barbeque and then didn't really care that much for it.

I was excited to read Into the Water because I really enjoyed The Girl on the Train (by the same author). While I definitely liked reading Into the Water, I think I had set my expectations a little to high because of the twists in The Girl on the Train, so I was a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the book is really good and there were some twists, I just liked The Girl on the Train better. Also, this book has A LOT of characters so I'd say for the first half or so of the book, I would have to stop and try to remember who this person was, as each chapter is someone else's perspective.

I always love a Mary Higgins Clark book and Every Breath You Takedid not disappoint. This book is about a cold case that is reopened where a woman had fallen to her death from the top of a museum. Just like all of Mary Higgins Clark's books, this book is an easy and interesting read. The chapters are short and there are always a few twists. It kept me guessing until the end. If you want a good (and light) mystery, check this one out!

I couldn't put The Marriage Lie down! This book is about a woman who's husband ends up on a flight that crashes. He wasn't supposed to be on the flight so the book navigates through the wife losing a husband and finding out who her husband really was. There are lots of twists, and I couldn't wait to keep reading. My only complaint is that I feel like it kind of ended, and I wished I had a little more information or it was extended a little farther. Still a good read though!

God's Wisdom for Navigating Life: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Book of Proverbs is such a great devotional, and I am loving it so far. If you are looking for a devotional for 2018, check this one out!

That's it for January! I'm always looking for suggestions so what are you reading?!
