Hello! It’s the end of the month, which means I have three book reviews to share with you! Here’s what I read in the month of January.
The Idea of You by Robinne Lee
This book was a fun beachy type read; it was a lighthearted love story about a divorced mother of a teenager who falls in love with a pop star. She and her daughter go to the bands’ concert and she meets the lead singer and feels an instant connection, but you know, he’s like twenty years old.
Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I’m pretty sure that everyone and their mom read this last year. It was on so many lists and won a lot of awards, so I had to see what all the fuss was about. This is a coming of age story about a girl that lives alone in a swamp, and also kind of a murder mystery. This book did live up to the hype; it was a really good story, but no really big twist at the end or anything like that. I can see a movie being made after this. It was really good.
The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
I had been waiting to get my hands on this new book for awhile, so I was really excited to read it. This is about an adopted girl who finds out that she has inherited a house from her late biological parents. The story is about the weird things that happened in that house and why she was adopted. This book was just ok for me, there weren’t any really big twists and I kind of lost interest. I don’t know why it was called The Family Upstairs either, and I couldn’t figure that out. I prefer Lisa Jewell’s other novels to this one.
