What I Read in January

what i read in january

Alright alrighttttt. I always try to prep this post as far in advance as possible so I can get it up right at the beginning of the month but for whatever reason, it always gets lost in the mix. So here we are, halfway through February and just going through January books! In January, I finally finished the Moose Springs series by Sarah Morgenthaler and I am so glad to be done. I also listened to The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves. This had been on my Goodreads ‘want to read’ list for a long time and it was available via Libby so I gave it ago and was pleasantly surprised!

What I Read in January

ENJOY THE VIEW BY SARAH MORGENTHALER

Goodreads Synopsis:

Former Hollywood darling River Lane’s acting career is tanking fast. Determined to start fresh behind the camera, she agrees to film a documentary about the picturesque small town of Moose Springs, Alaska. The assignment should have been easy, but the quirky locals want nothing to do with River. Well, too bad: River’s going to make this film and prove herself, no matter what it takes.

Or what (literal) mountain she has to climb.

Easton Lockett may be a gentle giant, but he knows a thing or two about survival. If he can keep everyone in line, he should be able to get River and her crew up and down Mount Veil in one piece. Turns out that’s a big if. The wildlife’s wilder than usual, the camera crew’s determined to wander off a cliff, and the gorgeous actress is fearless. Falling for River only makes Easton’s job tougher, but there’s only so long he can hold out against her brilliant smile. When bad weather strikes, putting everyone at risk, it’ll take all of Easton’s skill to get them back home safely…and convince River she should stay in his arms for good. 

My Review: I really enjoyed the first two books (read my review here!) of the Moose Springs series but I dragggged my feet with this one. I think a little bit of that had to do with the fact that I read so many holiday/winter-themed books in December and was ready to switch it up. I found the storyline of Enjoy The View to drag a little bit but I did love that the author introduced new characters, which helped shake things up a bit.

My Rating: 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

THE GIRL HE USED TO KNOW BY TRACEY GARVIS GRAVES

Goodreads Synopsis:

Annika Rose likes being alone.

She feels lost in social situations, saying the wrong thing or acting the wrong way. She just can’t read people. She prefers the quiet solitude of books or playing chess to being around others. Apart from Jonathan. She liked being around him, but she hasn’t seen him for ten years. Until now that is. And she’s not sure he’ll want to see her again after what happened all those years ago.

Annika Rose likes being alone.

Except that, actually, she doesn’t like being alone at all.

My Review: I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this one, but it was the perfect book to listen to while working, walking the dog, and getting stuff done around the house! I picked up that Annika was on the Autism spectrum right away. I loved her character and found myself cheering for her throughout the book. I definitely wasn’t prepared for a lot of parts in this book but loved that it threw me off what I thought was going to happen. I even found myself crying a few times towards the end!

My Rating: 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️
