Blodeuedd's and Carole's Best Book of the Month: January 2017


Hi All! Happy Feb! 

This is just a fun little meme that Carole and I are going to try  and do once a month. Give a little shout-out and "badge" of honor to our favorite book of the month! 


For January, Carole has decided to give the trophy to.........Eidolon by Grace Draven


"I picked this as the book of the month because I could hardly put this down. I enjoyed the first of the series, but this was even better. There was so much going on. So much drama and it really made me feel and think. This is an interesting world and interesting character. I can't wait for more. That is why I picked this for book of the month."



Now, My pick.........................Nothing to Envy  by Barbara Demick.


"I cannot say I had a best book for January. They were all kind of the same. Good, but nothing that was totally amazing. Instead, I will go for the most interesting book, which of course was Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick. It had me thinking, and it sure made me NOT want to live in North Korea. So that is my pick for January."

  1. I had a good month but if I have to pick a favorite it would be News of the World by Paulette Jiles (audiobook).

  3. I tried to read Grace Draven's books, but couldn't get into it. The North Korea book sounds scary tbh!

    1. I am sure it looks nice...just as long as I could live where no one else lives, and never meeting anyone else who totes would throw me in a camp

  11. I like this new feature! Good to know which books caught your attention each month. I didn't have a great January, lots of good books, but none that are phenomenal (ie. no 5 stars).

  12. I love your 'Best of the Month' meme idea. I'm always curious what books people enjoy. Mine was Gemina by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff.
