I dropped the ball. I actually double dropped the ball. I missed my Monday morning deadline (SORRY!) and I actually only completed one book this month. In my defense K and I were both home sick on Monday sooo…. let’s blame that.
Ok, back to books! (January’s book reviews, ICYMI) Last month I came up with this rating system:
★- terrible | ★★- I finished it but it was a struggle | ★★★- not bad, not my favorite | ★★★★- a good read that kept my interest | ★★★★★- I’ve already bought the book for my collection & I’m recommending it to everyone
I’ll tell you why I picked it up, what the book was about, and whether or not I recommend it. Like I said, this month I finished 1 book! (I was so pathetic last year so I’m still feeling pretty great about my reading habits so far this year.) Pic links back to GoodReads.
Bossypants by Tina Fey || ★★★★/5
I really, really love Tina. She’s unapologetic and funny and so genuine- that’s probably why I picked up this book. Plus I found it for less than $4 and I’m a sucker for cheap books.
As far as Erin‘s challenge goes, here’s where I’m at… same as last month.
