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!

Okay, I only got to July last year. I’m starting over and I’m going to do my best to make it the whole way!

J- Jade City by Fonda Lee

Book Cover

I’m not going to put a synopsis here because this is the last book in the trilogy. Just know that it’s amazing!! You should pick up this series.

A- A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

Book Cover

“When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they’re broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity.”

This fits a PopSugar prompt (or backlist) but I’ve been wanting to get to this at some point.

N- Nadiya Bakes by Nadiya Hussain

Book Cover

“When Nadiya Hussain, the UK’s national treasure, began cooking, she headed straight to the oven–which, in her home, wasn’t used for baking, but rather for storing frying pans! One day, her new husband asked her to bake him a cake and then… she was hooked! Baking soon became a part of her daily life.”

First saw her on Time to Eat, which was awesome! I wish they wouldn’t have changed that up. This was a good one even if I don’t bake a lot. lol

U- Under the Dome by Stephen King

Book Cover

“On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.”

I have had this on my shelf for sooo long. I don’t know that I’ll get to it. lol

A- American Royals by Katharine McGee

Book Cover

“As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling.

Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her.”

I have seen so many mixed reviews on this but I’m doing it! haha

R- Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson

Book Cover

I’m not going to do a synopsis for this either since it’s part of a series. I’m so sad that I haven’t even gotten to book two because I Loved book one!

Y- You Got Anything Stronger?

Book Cover

“Remember when we hit it off so well that we decided We’re Going to Need More Wine? Well, this time you and I are going to turn to our friend the bartender and ask, You Got Anything Stronger? I promise to continue to make you laugh, but with this round, the stakes get higher as the conversation goes deeper.
So. Where were we?”

I hadn’t read any of her others but I really enjoyed this one. I will go back to her others when I need another audiobook!

  1. Great list of books! A Little Life absolutely WRECKED ME in the worst best way 😂 It’s so freaking emotional. The first King book I read was Under the Dome but I read it 11 years ago and remember close to nothing about it? I was planning to re-read it at some point but don’t know when if ever that’ll happen, haha. Also, I love Nadiya. Her bakes and quick eats are amazing and she’s so freaking adorable!
