Bookbugworld’s January Reading Wrap Up
Since January 2020, I have started my TBR posts which is mainly a monthly reading plan for myself. This led to me thinking, why not add a Reading Wrap Up post so that I can look back at how much ground I have covered after all. My January TBR was originally, four books. I deliberately stopped it at four because I had other family commitments. But, much to my surprise by the end of the month something else came up and my monthly plans were totally disrupted.
However, I have managed to complete three books in total..Given the month I had, I would say it was a good effort overall.
So here are the three books I read in January. I have already posted reviews for all of them. You can check them out if you’re interested.
1. The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows by Jenni Keer
Without breaking my 2019 tradition, I started the year with a Jenni Keer book. It didn’t disappoint. Maisie Meadows is an upbeat and simple contemporary women’s fiction with just a hint of magic. I enjoyed it and rated it a 4/5. You can read more about the book in my review.
2. The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms
Ever heard of a momspringa? Read this book to know that every mother deserves a momspringa now and then. This book is about a single mother of two teenage kids. Her husband who left her three years back re-enters their life and that’s where the story begins. I didn’t fall in love with this one but it had its moments. This one was a one time read for me. I rated it a 3.5/4. You can read my non-spoiler review of the book to know more.
3. How to Make Time for Me by Fiona Perrin
So here we are on the final and third book. This one is again about a single teenage mother, Callie, who is juggling all ehr troubles by trying to be there for jer family and loved ones. The story is more about Callie’s journey from an invisible person to a confident woman. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was witty and easy to read. However, there wasn’t much in terms of plot. Perhaps, it is the result of reading two consecutive books of similar theme that made me feel that way.. Anyway, I rated it a 3/5. The complete review of the book is already up on my blog.
