January Reading Review!!
READING, READING, READING, AND MORE READING !!!!
January 2022 was a whirlwind of reading, with many fabulous moments. It was hard to deal with as my family was grieving the loss of a close family member. From a newfound love of formula one racing to finally tackling a series inspired by Gossip Girl, every book I read offered a vast thrill ride.
The first series I finished for the month was the All In Series by Helena Hunting which I now deem the queen of sports rom-com. I spent the last book in the series Kiss for a Kiss and then the spin-off series about the children from Pucked and Lie for a Lie called Little Lies. I love it when the world collides into one series, and it offers so much to break down. It also made me realize how the brother's best friend trope is done correctly. You can see my other blog about the All In series on my blog feed! But I now wait patiently for Maverick to have his romance story!
The next series I started in 2021 and finished this month is called the Dirty Air series by Lauren Asher. I have a post about each book soon, but I can tell you that Lauren is on my top author's list. I also read the first book in her Dreamland series, Called The Fine Print, a Disney adult's ultimate dream romance come true. Rowan, the main guy character, has solidified himself in my top bookmen list. The text bookman is a grump to a softy! I understand that banter in books makes the best reads, and Lauren Asher knows how to make great dialogue.
Another book that does the banter to a T is The Love Hypothesis, which has been on my TBR list for months. If it weren’t because my friend wanted to read it with me, I probably would have never picked it up. Olive is trying to get her Doctorate at Stanford, and Adam Carlson happens to be an unexpected force she never knew she needed. Adam is also a grump-turned softy who finds out he cared for Olive long before realizing it! This one book I can say for sure is worth the hype!!
I was constantly advertised for Darling Venom. When books are heavily advertised, I’m often cautious about how good they are. I would like to say that this book provoked me and moved me in ways I never thought possible. I can only describe it as my John Green Preteen days meeting my mature days off now! It talks about the subject matter of grieving loss and accepting the love you think you deserve.
The last series I want to highlight is the Addicted series. I also started in 2021 and plan to finish next month. The first two books were good but not great, and I had yet to read a series of multiple people based on the same couple. I then read Addicted For Now, which introduced the dual POV to the series, and it changed the whole feel of the series. I will forever live the Cancun trip in the book, and it felt like I was living in the best version of a reality TV show while reading.
I then binge-read Kiss The Sky and Hothouse Flower, the following books in the series. Before I read this series, I didn’t understand how people got so emotionally deep with this character, and now being halfway through, I can agree I’ll be heartbroken when I reach the end. If you love Gossip Girl, you’ll love this series to pieces !!!
Last but not least on my fav reads of the month was Sweet Temptation which is my gateway into the mafia world of Cora Reily. I plan to read her Bound by Blood series soon, so I read this to get a feel for her writing. The book did not disappoint, and I held myself to reading at least one mafia book per month to keep the series alive.
If you want to join my reading journey, my TikTok is mnishy_reads, and my Goodreads account is open to the public. I can’t wait to look back this time next year to see my progress and journey. I can know for sure that I’ve never been in a better mood than when I’m reading.
