January Reading Wrap-Up

January 2015 has come to an end, and I am actually very proud of the amount of books I have read this month. All links lead to my review on Goodreads. Without further ado..

This month I read 7 books.

Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip (By Jordan Sonnenblick): First book of 2015! Whoot whoot! Sonnenblick is my friend's favorite author, so she allowed me to borrow her copy of the book, and since they are fast reads, I got through this one pretty quick. I rated it 4/5 stars on Goodreads.

Zen and The Art of Faking It (By Jordan Sonnenblick): I also borrowed this from a friend. My review for this one was short. I couldn't really relate to this one as much as his other one, but I still liked it enough to give it 3/5 stars on Goodreads.

Lost World, Jurassic Park #2 (By Michael Crichton): I got this from my school library. I was surprised to see how many people on Goodreads disliked this book. I certainly really enjoyed it, and Crichton's writing style is always so refreshing and makes the book hard to put down. This book easily earned a 5/5 stars on Goodreads and even a spot on my favorites shelf.

Tiger's Curse, Tiger's Curse #1 (By Colleen Houck): I got this book used but in good condition from my favorite bookstore (because, let's face it, it was really cheap). But in my defense it had been on my TBR for a long time. My review on Goodreads, linked in the title, is very long, so if you'd like to know more about my mixed feelings for this book, you can find out more there! It earned 4/5 stars on Goodreads.

Tiger's Quest, Tiger's Curse #2 (By Colleen Houck): This book I got at the same time as the first one, and I didn't regret it once I had read it. It was better than the first book, in my opinion, and the last chapter or so... the feels! 4.75/5 stars on Goodreads from me.

Tiger's Voyage, Tiger's Curse #3 (By Colleen Houck): This book was the best one of the series. I read it during Finals Week and it may have kept me from studying for some points... I literally sat down and read this book for three hours straight, and it very nearly nabbed a place on my favorites shelf on Goodreads... 5/5 stars from me, no question.

Tiger's Destiny, Tiger's Curse #4 (By Colleen Houck): Yes, I marathonned this series. I'm happy I did, because it takes a lot of energy for me to do so, for some reason? Maybe I just get drained. And with all the feels at the end of this book...the last three chapters... oh, I am surprised I didn't end up bawling! 5/5 stars, but still not as good as the third book.
