Spell the Month in Books: January!

I saw this over on One Book More and thought it would be a fun new monthly post! I have tagged her post so you can check it out too! It was originally created by Reviews from the Stacks, and the idea is to spell the month using the first letter of book titles.

I’m just going to add a tidbit from the synopsis and whether I’ve read it or want to. I’ll link the Goodreads link on the title, if you want to check it out more!

J- Jade City by Fonda Lee

Jade City (The Green Bone Saga, #1)

“The Kaul family is one of two crime syndicates that control the island of Kekon. It’s the only place in the world that produces rare magical jade, which grants those with the right training and heritage superhuman abilities.”

This is on my TBR and I cannot wait to read it!!

A- A Promised Land by Barack Obama

A Promised Land

“This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama’s conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day.”

This is lengthy but written well and he has good humor!

N- Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1)

“A breathtaking, enchanting new series by debut author Jessica Townsend, about a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a magical world–but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination.”

I loved this so much. This series is fabulous! Give it a go!!

U- Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes, The by Elissa R. Sloan

The Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes

“Told in multiple perspectives—including Cassidy herself—and different timelines, this is a behind-the-scenes look into the rise and fall of a pop icon, and a penetrating examination of the dark side of celebrity and the industry that profits from it.”

I loved the first half of this book and then it rapidly went down hill. I didn’t care for the ending and it kind of left too much open for me.

A- Arsenic for Tea by Robin Stevens

Arsenic for Tea (Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries, #2)

“With wild storms preventing anyone from leaving, or the police from arriving, Fallingford suddenly feels like a very dangerous place to be. Not a single person present is what they seem—and everyone has a secret or two. And when someone very close to Daisy looks suspicious, the Detective Society must do everything they can to reveal the truth… no matter the consequences.”

I liked the first book but had some issues but I’m giving it another go!

R- Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

Regretting You

“From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a poignant novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.”

I cannot believe I still haven’t read this yet. I’m planning to soon!!

Y- You Can Only Yell at Me for One Thing at A Time by Patricia Marx & Roz Chast

You Can Only Yell at Me for One Thing at a Time: Rules for Couples

“This guide will make you laugh, remind you why your relationship is better than everyone else’s, and solve all your problems.”

Such a short read and so funny with great illustrations!
