Since I started off so late in January and only the first book on the list below was read I'm combining the two months! I need to get cracking if I'm going to make it through all these books I want to read :)
Books I read in January and February...
- I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain by Courtney Robertson I was definitely not a fan of Courtney's when she was on the Bachelor. I'm still not a huge fan, but I really appreciated hearing her side of the story and, more notably, the reality of living with the public judging you. It must be difficult and I have a lot of empathy for her after reading the book. It was well written, interesting. While it was slow in some parts and I got bored with all the name dropping, I still liked it. Not my favorite book ever, but I would totally recommend reading it to anyone who likes to watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette!
- Perfect Timing by Jill Mansell
It was my read on the plane ride to/from Orlando at the end of the month. I ended up sleeping 95% of all flights to/from so I ended up not reading much at all and finished up reading this one the first few days of February. First 50 pages? I wasn't loving this book... it kinda jumps from character to character for the narration and it's a little tough to follow. By page 100, I wanted to see what happened and how it all played out. Overall it was a fun story with interesting characters. I just still wish that the narration didn't jump around like it does. For a beach-y read kind of chick lit, romance book... too much work to follow it. You do adjust to her style. Would I read it again? Probably not, but I liked it overall for the complex story it told.
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett
In progress... started it near the end of the month and currently enjoying reading it! :)
