Welcome to February Bookish Babes! The beginning of a month means it’s time to go over everything I read last month!
This month was good for reading! I’m right on track with my 2016 total books read goal and I liked all of the books I read! The past few months I have found 1 or 2 books each month that I just do not like, so this month was a nice break from that pattern.
I can not for the life of me remember why I added this to my TBR on Goodreads but I’m really glad I did! This is a memoir which is not usually my cup of tea, but I’ve been trying to branch out from my normal genres. I really liked how the author admitted his original intentions for volunteering at an orphanage were very selfish. This allowed his character development to shine throughout the whole story. I recommend checking it out!
This was SUCH a good book! It was a really difficult read, due to extremely real depictions of life in the Middle East, but it was well worth it. This is the first book I have read by this author and this made me excited to read more! I think I’ll be checking out The Kite Runner next. Let me know if you’ve read anything by this author and what you thought!
Although I didn’t really dislike any books read in January that one was just okay for me. The only other John Green book I have read is The Fault In Our Stars and I really enjoyed it! I’m not sure what it was about this one that just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t feel strongly attached to any of the characters so I wasn’t particularly invested in the hunt to find Margo. What’s your favorite John Green book?
That wraps up January! I would love to know what you have been reading this past month, let me know in the comments below or over on Instagram.
