Maybe I should stop posting my monthly TBR's. I seem to never stick to the plan.

 

In January I read 1 novella and 1 graphic novel, listened to 1 audiobook, and read 4 books. 

 

Best reads of the month were;

 

1) Aya: Life In Yop City by Marguerite Abouet

2) Diamonds And Deceit by Leila Rasheed

3) Destiny's Embrace by Beverly Jenkins

 

Worst read of the month:

1) Our First Love by Anthony Lamarr

 

**I lowered my reading goal from 100 to 75 to allow for less pressure.

It Could've Been More
Our First Love: A Novel - Anthony Lamarr

This could've been a great read. Instead it fell flat and I'm, to say the least, disappointed. I could've and should've stopped reading it early on. I thought there was going to be some big plot twist at the end. Boy, was I wrong. This book was all over the place with subplots that went no where. In finishing the book I thought....why?

Reading progress update: I've read 88%.
Our First Love: A Novel - Anthony Lamarr

This book has been a wild ride of confusion, at 30% I almost DNF'D it. I know there's something about the brothers Nigel and Caleb that isn't real or true. I just don't know what it is. This is why I continue to read. Their life is too plausible for it to be real. 

 

**Caleb is agoraphobic and he and Nigel share one life and all its experiences

My January TBR Challenge (2014)
Defy - Sara B. Larson
Bingo's Run - James A. Levine
Forever - Karen Ann Hopkins
In the Blood - Lisa Unger
The Invention of Wings: A Novel - Sue Monk Kidd
Real As It Gets - ReShonda Tate Billingsley
Becoming Josephine: A Novel - Heather Webb
Our First Love: A Novel - Anthony Lamarr
Marching to Zion: A Novel - Mary Glickman
Crash into You - Katie McGarry

I'm hoping to read these 10 books. One that I attempted in 2013 (Crash into You) but had to put down due to the dialogue of the characters. I'm learning to move on when a book is not moving at a reasonable pace and not waste precious time plodding through. Often times I waste days on a book that I just might not be in the mood for or the story and or writing isn't captivating in the beginning.

 

**Wish me luck and Happy Reading!
