I had an amazing reading month in January. It was such a great way to kick off 2018. These are the books that I read…The books that have a * are books that I read for the 2018 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge.
Renegades by Marissa Meyer. Superheroes. Supervillians. Superpowers. Vengeance. Need I say more?! 5 stars
The Lying Game by Ruth Ware. This is about four childhood friends who go their separate ways only to be pulled back together 20 years later, when a secret from their past threatens their future. *This is a book from a celebrity book club
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. This follows a 13 year old boy who has to come to terms with his mother’s terminal cancer. 5 stars *This is a book about death or grief
Rapunzel And The Lost Lagoon by Leila Howland. This story takes place after Tangled the movie ends, but before the start of the TV show. Rapunzel finds a book in the castle library and when she shows Cassandra, they set off in search of the lost lagoon that is believed to be the source of all power in Corona, but up until now has only been thought of as a myth. 5 stars
Tangled Cinestory Comic by Jeremy Barlow. This is the movie Tangled in comic form. It follows the movie perfectly, including all of the songs. If you enjoyed the movie you will love this. 5 stars
Tangled: Before Ever After Cinestory Comic by Walt Disney Company. This is the movie Tangled: Before Ever After in comic form. Again this follows the movie perfectly including the songs. 5 stars
Tangled: The Series – Take On The World Cinestory Comic by Walt Disney Company. This is the comic version of the first three episodes of the TV series and it’s so great. I love the artwork in these comic versions. 5 stars
Tangled The Manga by Shiori Kanaki. This is the first true manga that I have read and I really enjoyed it. This is the manga version of the movie Tangled. It doesn’t have the songs and it differs a little from things that were said in the movie but it was still a great one. 5 stars
Golden by Cameron Dokey. This is a Rapunzel retelling and I loved it. It’s one of my favorites. 5 stars *This is your favorite prompt from 2015, 2016 or 2017. I chose 2016 and a fairytale retelling
Wires And Nerve Volume Two: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer. I got this in the mail on the day it came out (Jan 30th) and I devoured it. I loved seeing everyone again, especially Wolf and Scarlet. Oh and IKO! 5 stars *This is a book released in 2018
A Desperate Place For Dying by Scott William Carter. This is the second book in the Garrison Gage Oregon Coast series. This one takes place a year after the first book and follows a different murder mystery. This time involving a cult and a man from Gage’s past. 5 stars *This is a book you borrowed or were given as a gift
The Lovely Wicked Rain by Scott William Carter. This is book three in the series I previously mentioned and takes place about a year after the second book. This time there has been a murder at the college Zoe goes to and the prime suspect is someone she knows. 5 stars
Darker by E.L. James. This is Fifty Shades Darker from Christian’s point of view. This is such a guilty pleasure series for me, but I think I like this version better than Ana’s point of view. 5 stars
Wounded by Laurell K. Hamilton. This is a novella in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series and It’s sort of an outtake scene from her novel Dead Ice. I think I enjoyed this novella more than the actual novel. 5 stars
I ended the month reading a few children’s picture books, just because!
Really, Rapunzel Needed A Haircut! The Story Of Rapunzel As Told By Dame Gothel by Jessica Gunderson. This was actually kind of funny and I enjoyed it. 5 stars
Rapunzel by Paul O. Zelinksy. The illustrations in this book are so beautiful. 5 stars
Rapunzel Retold by John Cech. The illustrations in this book are also stunning. I love this version so much. 5 stars
5 physical books, 5 graphic novels, 4 ebooks and 3 picture books…17 books total this month and all 5 star reads! Such a good reading month for me. Hello February!
