The beginning of 2022 treated me pretty well book wise. I found a new book to love and a new book to despise! I read a total of four books this last month and I would say they were all very different from each other which made for a pretty diverse reading month for me.
I will post a quick thought on each book and also the link to the full review so you can easily find my full thoughts on the books. If you have read any of these please drop your rating below!
Lets start from my favorite read all the way to my least!
“Crescent City” By Sarah J. Maas
This is my new all time favorite book! Just barley beating Verity and One Last stop out.
I loved this book with all my heart! The world building was well… Out Of This World!
I fell in love with all the characters as well.
Sarah J. Maas really knows how to captivate her readers and transport them into her worlds, that is what really made the book my all time favorite!
“The Maid” By Nita Prose
I really thought this book would have been a quick five star read for me, but it wasn’t! It took me about 100 pages to actually get into this super short book and then towards the end I finally fell in love with the main character Molly.
I felt like this book was over hyped but to be honest it was still a book that maybe one day I would give another try to see if maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for that week.
“Malibu Rising” By Taylor Jenkins Reid
This is another over hyped book that I read this month. I had heard so many great reviews for this book but I just don’t see why?
I felt like the book moved really slowly, if you like books that have a lot of background history into the characters this book would be for you.
The main issue was that they introduced too many characters and nothing ever paid off!
“Leave The World Behind” By Rumaan Alam
This will be a mini Review
I HATED this book with all my heart. It made Anxious People sound pleasing to read again which was previously my least favorite book before this one.
I listed to this on audio and the only thing I enjoyed about the book was the narrators voice. It took all of me to finish listening to this book.
All it was is listening to people say “I wonder what is causing the black out?” “What was that noise” over and over again. I felt like every chapter was the same thing just written a tad different than the first.
I really don’t like to be a negative person but I really didn’t have a positive thing to say about this book. I guess they are going to make a movie out of it and I am wanting to know how? We will just be watching people sit down and drink and freak out over the world possibly ending? I am not sure if there is enough content to make a movie, but to each their own.
I highly recommend not wasting your time on this one.
