January Book Report

Monday, February 1, 2016

I loved making reading a priority in 2015, so I'm doing it again this year - but in a different way! I have a big list of books I want to read so I'm just going off that list instead of following a prompt. My goal is to read 30 books in 2016. You can click the affiliate links below if you want to read the summary and other reviews of the book.

I started with The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan. I've always loved books about Chinese culture and history and I've read several of Amy's books. I liked the way the character's fates intertwined. This wasn't my most favorite book of hers, but it was good.

Next up was The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fck. It's a spin-off on Marie Kondo's decluttering book. It was a funny read but (obviously) uses a certain four-letter-word A LOT. Like every paragraph. It talks about how to get rid of mental clutter and self-imposed obligations.

I found The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry on Kindle Unlimited. It's about a persnickety bookseller in a small town. He gets a second chance at life and takes full advantage of that chance. The story is so cute and it's a fast read.

I started reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. I've heard nothing but good things about this book for years but am just now getting around to reading it.

What's the #1 book on your To Read list?

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!

  2. So glad you've been able to keep up on your reading, Emily! Looking forward to seeing what else you're reading as the year progresses as I'm always on the lookout for new books. I'm about halfway through The Girl With All The Gifts. So far it's been an enjoyable read. :)
