Monthly Run Down - January 2019



Books I Read:

 

Playboy Pilot  - 4 Stars - Read like a RomCom movie so I loved it.

 

Becoming - 4 Stars - Very candid. I especially loved the part where she meets Barak.

 

The Greatest Love Story Ever Told - 2.25 Stars - They seem very in love and make each other laugh.

 

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time - 4 Stars - Another lovely RomCom for me.   

 

Black Sheep - 4 Stars - Very relatable.

 

The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell - 4 Stars - I’ve been following his comedy for a while and it was good to learn more about his background and where his comedy comes from.

 

Two Henrys - 2.5 Stars - An honest story about Kevin growing up and realizing he is gay.

 

Identity Thief - 4 Stars - Maybe not the moral but Rachel’s capacity for forgiveness after this ordeal still astounds me.

 

The Third Man - 4 Stars - The trials and heartbreak of building a family.

 

British Bedmate (a.k.a. Dear Bridget, I Want You) - 4 Stars - Where can I sign up for a Simon of my own?

 

Adulthood is a Myth - 4 Stars - So funny and epically relatable.

 

The Paper Magician - 4 Stars - An epic adventure. I like the relationship between Ceony and Emery.

 

Prisoner of Night - 3.5 Stars - It was good to see other vampire citizens of Caldwell but it ran a bit long.   

 

Whiskey in a Teacup - 3.75 Stars - It was good getting to know Reese.

 

Verity - 5 Stars - Stand out story of the month. I’m still in shock and don’t quite know what to believe.   




DNF:

 

Well Hung Over in Vegas  - Kimberly Fox - The characters were just too unlikable.



Currently Reading:



Jar of Hearts - Jennifer Hellier - I’m not hooked yet but willing to keep going a bit longer.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J. K. Rowling - Re-reading or listening I guess.

The Varlet and The Voyeur - L. H. Cosway & Penny Reid - Just started.




Year to Date Totals:



January: 16 books     1,324 Pages Read         57 Hours Listened


2019: 16 books     1,324 Pages Read        57 Hours Listened

Rough Legged Hawk
The foothills of Southern Alberta
A shy Great Horned Owl

Sunday was an unusual day in Alberta--it is January and our temperature was +17 C (that's about 63 F for the Americans among my friends).  It was a lovely day to go looking for birds.  We didn't see much (it is really January after all), but we had a good raptor day.  Three Rough Legged Hawks, one Great Horned Owl, and one Bald Eagle (which kept flying right on by, not posing for a photo).

 

Excellent way to spend a beautiful Sunday!
