January 2018 Books Read

January Books Read

  1. The Valkyries by Paulo Coelho  A beautifully written story about the Authors struggle with spirituality. I am a lover of anything Paulo Coelho writes.  He did not disappoint with this true story of how he voyages to become closer to God.
  2. An Exclusive Love by Johanna Adorjan  I didn’t read this book from cover to cover.  It does get very morbid at some points.  The are descriptions of the Holocaust.  This is a beautiful love story though.
  3. A lesson before dying by Ernest J. Gaines  This book is on the Oprah’s Book Club and for a good reason.  I love books that can move you emotionally and leave you looking at the world differently.  This book was beautifully written.  I teared up more than once and found myself crying at the end.  I will definitely be looking for more books by this Author.
  4. Ninth Grade Bites The Chronicles of Vladimir Todd by Heather Brewer This book was my “fun” read for the month. I always like to pick a YA novel to read in the midst of all of my heavy books. This is the second book in the series and YES I will be reading the next book Tenth Grade Bleeds.  Thanks to my Cousin for recommending this series to me.

I was one book short of my five book goal for the month.  This is because, I spent three days trying to figure out which book to read between my book 3 and book 4.   I wasn’t in the mood to read another heavy book.  I wanted something light and fun to read.  Going forward into February I have created a list of books to read, that are already on my book shelf.  I am not sure if I will be able to stick to the list, because I really do have to be in the mood to read certain genres.   My goal for February is to read 4 books.  I don’t have a lot going on at work so this is an attainable goal.  If I make five books even better, but since February is a short month I don’t want to have to rush through any books just to make five.  I do tend to read more during the summer months, so I am still on track to reach my goal of 60 books read before Dec 31.
