I read 3 fairly different books this month and am excited to share my thoughts with you today! One I thought was just okay, one I really liked, and one had me literally laughing. out. loud. Let's get to it!
I've Got Your Number
By Sophie Kinsella
This is my second Sophie Kinsella book (I read The Undomesticated Goddess last year). I really enjoy this author and know I can count on her for some good quality chick lit. I've Got Your Number did not disappoint! The plot was sweet and original and only mildly predictable, which is usually a win when it comes to chick lit. I liked this one a lot and would recommend to a friend!
By Amy Poehler
Oh. my. gosh. To start, I think this is the first book I ever found myself laughing out loud to. I am a big Amy Poehler fan, which I am sure helps, but her book is such a standout. It's funny and honest, and I actually tried to read it more slowly so it would last longer. I think I was driving Parker crazy because every 10 seconds I said "Oh my gosh, let me read you this line!". She talked about her time on SNL and Parks & Rec and even dove into her personal life, making it all hysterical as only Amy Poehler can do. It's January and I already know this will be one of my favorite books of 2016!
By John Green
This one is tough. I really, really wanted to love it. Since The Fault In Our Stars was my overall favorite book of 2015, I had high hopes for John Green's other bestseller. Maybe I put it on too high of a pedestal, but I just wasn't obsessed with Paper Towns. It was entertaining enough, but the plot left something to be desired, and it ended very abruptly. I just couldn't help but feel a tiny bit disappointed in this one. Did anyone else feel this way?
That's a wrap for January! We'll talk books again with a whole new round of contenders in February!
