Books I read in Jan 2019

February 3, 2019 Book review 4

Jan 2019 was a pretty amazing reading month. I got through 12 books, and was delighted to read on in some series I’m loving, and to devour some books by favourite authors of mine.

Jan 2019 wrapped up

  • Favourite Book: The Dream Daugher – it blew me away and I actually dreamt about the characters
  • Most Anticipated Book: The Wytch Elm – yes it delivered
  • Scariest Book: Behind Closed Doors – freaked me the hell out!
  • Book Where The Tagline Delivered: Dirty Little Secrets, great tagline, great book.
  • Book that I’m still thinking about: The Dream Daughter – and dreaming about
  • Book you all need to read: The Dream Daughter – can you tell I loved it..
  • Funniest Book: Lessons 1 and 2 – worth waiting for
  • Favourite Cover: The Dream Daughter – any chance to remind you to read this book!
  • Most Disappointing book: All Fall Down by Tom Bale – a little too dark and a lot too twisted for my Jan mood. At another time, I think I’d have loved this book.
  • Saddest book: Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine – I liked it, but found it a very depressing read, even though it’s true that Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.
  • Lesson of the month: Follow your passions which was inspired by What Happened That Night
  • Quote of the month – so true

Life is about intuition, with a splash of logic. If you learn to use the two in the right balance, any decision you take will normally be right

The Pearl Sister by Lucinda Riley

Beyond the Books

  • I’ve started yoga again. I had to quit in Sept when I broke my humerus. Of course, I have to modify all the arm and shoulder moves, but I’m so happy to be practising again.
  • Last weekend, I attended a writing workshop. You know the way they say you should do one thing every day that scares you? This scared me so much that I’m covered for the whole year!
  • Annoyingly, I got bronchitis. So, it looks like breaking your humerus, also ruins your immune system as I’ve gone from illness to illness since. Time to get back eating healthier and get this body back in to a better zone.
  • I choose my word of the year. Passion. I want to follow my passions and feel truly alive. Life is short, as I learn to my cost last year with the untimely death of my brother, Kevin. I want to make my life count, and enjoy as many moments as I can.

    I loved The Dream Daughter too and listened to it on audio. I liked poor old Eleanor and that was via audio too so I didn’t feel too depressed about her. Hope the bronchitis is better soon. Great reading month for sure.

    A nice assortment of books here, Trish! I love the way you listed your month’s reads and a quick tag for each. Now I want to read The Dream Daughter. I thought I had it on my other kindle but I guess not. And you and many others are big fans of Jenny Colgan so I need to pick up one of her books soon!

    It’s always nice returning to favourite authors – happy to hear you had a good start to the reading year. I really like your word for the year; I wish you all the best for 2019! Also, The Dream Daughter is going to be one of my next reads, and you have me even more excited for it now!!

    Happy reading in February!
