I hope everyone is off to a great start with 2016! January was on the meh side for me personally and with reading, too. As sadly detailed in this post, I missed my January goal to read 3 books by 1. *womp womp*
I've decided to change things up a bit with the monthly recap posts by spotlighting both my favorite book read in each month and a favorite quote. So January's pick for book of the month goes to:
This was such a haunting, beautifully written read. I don't typically read World War II historical fiction, but this story was absolutely absorbing.
My favorite quote of the month is from Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, which I'm currently reading and loving. I've already written down quite a few favorite quotes from this time travel novel, so it was a bit hard narrowing the choices down to just this one:
"Know this, pirate," he said, his hands gripping the railing, "you are my passenger, and I will be damned before I let any harm come to you."
And finally, the absolutely PHENOMENAL The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman released in January. I cannot recommend this book enough, which is why I'm plugging it once again, lol. Seriously, though, everyone needs to meet Lady Helen Wrexhall and Lord Carlston!
