I was super happy to hear that you guys were pretty excited for this new series last month. Knowing that I’ll be sharing the books I read with y’all over here has been a great motivator to read along with my reading goal for the year (thirty). I really pushed to read as many books in February as I did before, but I was a little more distracted with a big project ending and getting Zoey. However, I read seven books, just one less than January, and I’m pretty happy with the books I read!
I loved this book! Before starting it I had read a lot of reviews that were all over the place. Several people weren’t nearly as happy with it as they were with Tina Fey’s book. I don’t necessarily think that’s a fair comparison. Obviously Tina set out to write a funny book about her life and how she got to where she is; whereas, I think Amy set out to write a book minus the BS. Although the overall book wasn’t hilarious, I really enjoyed it and laughed at several different parts of it!
Oh this book! It was a doozy! I got hung up on it for a few weeks because it took me a while to really get into it. It’s laid out the same way Gone Girl is, but for some reason it still took me a while to want to read it. I definitely didn’t see the ending coming, though, and I’m still trying to decide if I think this book is stranger than GG. If you’re looking for a book that might keep you up at night, this is the one for you!
Show Your Work
This was such a great book! I have Steal Like An Artist, but I haven’t read it yet. When I was searching around on Overdrive this month I saw that SYW was available so I grabbed it. It’s such a great book for creatives! I have so many highlights from it, and I even got several blog post ideas from the book. I can definitely see this book being one that I would go back to every so often.
Maximize Your Potental
I borrowed this book from Amazon last summer I think, but never got around to finishing it. I figured I would grab it late last month and work on reading it while I started another fiction book. I ended up starting where I left off, so while I don’t remember much about the beginning, I do remember being surprised that it was entirely comprised of essays since I hadn’t read the other 99U book before this one. Overall, I ended up enjoying it, and I was really fascinated by several of the studies shared in the essays.
Other books I read last month:
Killer (Pretty Little Liars #6) by Sara Shepard
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Heartless (Pretty Little Liars #7) by Sara Shepard
