Books I read January

I have a reading goal to read 3 books a month this year. I hit my goal last year and I am excited to read more books in 2017. If I hit my goal again that is 36 books this year that I'll be reading. In January I only read 2 and a half but I am kind of far ahead in my reading goal for February and we are going on vacation this month to St. George (again I know) so I know I'll make up for it.

First book I read was Forever and Forever by Josi S. Kilpack. I love these historical proper romance books and this one was really good. Historical romance novels are kind of my thing and this one was just like all the other ones I read. No matter how many times I read the same type of story line I still think that the books are great and make me feel those feelings of being in love for the first time all over again. She just had a new book come out in January which I am excited to read this month.

A series of unfortunate events came out on Netflix and before I watch it I want to read all the books. The series is going to be books 1-4 and in January I read The Bad Beginning which is book one.

This book is dark for a children's novel. Bad things happen to the kids and it's just really sad. It's nice to see that the kids are smart and try and figure everything out on their own. The series doesn't have a happy ending so don't read it if you are going to be mad at that but I think they are fun and I can't wait to watch what Netflix does for the books.

The other book I started in January but didn't finish was First Women.

This is about the challenging position of being First Lady and talks about the first ladies from Jacqueline Kennedy to Michelle Obama. I love it. Seeing the insight into the white house, seeing how these ladies dealt with issues is just empowering. I am working on finishing it and my goal is to have it finished this week. Really good read for those into American History.

On my list for February:
Lauren Graham Talking as Fast as I Can
Red Queen Aveyard, Victoria
Better Than Before by Gretchen Ruben
The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket
Organizing from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern
