January 2014 Wrap Up

 
 
Hello, hello!
One of my goals this year was to do a monthly wrap up so here I am completing the first month of my goal.
Go me!
I read 14 books this month so i'm pretty darn happy with myself.
I won't be giving much of a synopsis of the books only because it will take forever and this post will be ridiculously long. I will leave the links to where you can buy the books though so if you're interested all you gotta do is click the link!
Enjoy!

#1 The Arrangement 2 by H.M. Ward
My oh my was this book good. The plus to the Arrangement books is that they are delicious and they are short. However the fact that they are short also sucks. I believe that there are about 12 or 13 of them now but there could be more. I don't want to spend $2.99 on each ebook when there are SO many of them. Of course I probably will since they are so good. 
 

#2 The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst
I loved this book so so much! I even did a review on it which you can check out here: Review
I also was fortunate enough to interview the author of this yummy book Jennifer Probst. You can check out the interview here: Interview

#3 Finding It by Cora Carmack
I am a HUGE fan of Cora Carmack so I was stoked to read this book. I will say that it wasn't my favorite so far in the companion novel series but I did enjoy it. I didn't think I'd like Kelsey's story very much but she grew on me. I also was a big fan of Hunt.
 

#4 Rome by Jay Crownover
I really don't think I need to tell you guys how much I loved this book. I've only said in about every freaking tag I've done that this is the book I was most excited about for 2014. Simply amazing. Jay Crownover is my hero.
 

#5 Dare You To by Katie McGarry
I read Pushing The Limits in January of 2013 and I really didn't love it as much as everyone else so I was hesitant to pick this book up. It wasn't the best book I read all month but I did really enjoy it. I'll also say it made me want to read Crash Into You REAL bad :P

#6 Nellcott Is My Darling by Golda Fried
I did a review of this book also which you can read here: Review
I also did an interview with Golda Fried so if you'd like to check that out click here: Interview

#7 The Temptation of Lila & Ethan by Jessica Sorensen
Holy crap did I love this book! If you've read The Secret of Ella and Micha then you already know Lila and Ethan. Let me just tell you that whether or not you liked Ella and Micha I can almost promise you that you will love this book. One of my favorite books of the month. Quite possibly one of my favorite books of the year. (I know I know it's only January, it was just that good!)
 

#8 Lila & Ethan: Forever & Always by Jessica Sorensen
After finishing The Temptation of Lila and Ethan I HAD to read the novella that went with it. So good. So so good.
 

#9 Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles
This is the second book in the Perfect Chemistry series and I will say I enjoyed it more than Perfect Chemistry. I was nervous because so many people have said that Perfect Chemistry was the best and I didn't really enjoy that. Just goes to show that people are different because I enjoyed this so much more.

#10 The Destiny of Violet & Luke by Jessica Sorensen
As you can tell I was on a bit of a Jessica Sorensen kick this month. I didn't like this as much as Lila & Ethan but I did really enjoy it. Major freaking plot twist in the end that made me crazy. I can't wait until the next book!
 

#11 A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers
I participated in a twitter chat with Jay Crownover and Lisa Desrochers which is how I found out about this book. Jay Crownover kept saying that this is one of her favorites and kept talking about how much she loves Lisa soooo I had to pick up this book asap. I'm really glad I did because I thought it was a really good new adult book.
 

#12 A Little Too Much by Lisa Desrochers
As soon as I finished A Little Too Far I had to pick up this book because I needed to know what happened to a character we meet in the first book. I liked the first one but I loved this one!
 

#13 Slammed by Colleen Hoover
Holy book goodness! I have been wanting to read this book but I've never been able to find it in stores. I broke down and bought it on my kindle and am SO happy that I did. I loved it!
 

#14 Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
I loved Slammed so I decided I needed more Colleen Hoover in my life. I've heard amazing things about Hopeless and I can now say that everything was true. It was different from any book that I've ever read and I would DEFINATLY recommend you check it out.
