Best of Jan

Hello all to 2018 (just in case some people were not aware of the year change)! We shall continue our monthly award giving meme to the best ofs!

Here is our best of January. 


First, favorite movie:

Carole's is......Star Wars The Last Jedi




"Had a couple really good ones, but nothing amazing this month for movies. I’ll have to say that ‘Star Wars the Last Jedi’ is the one for this month. I really enjoyed it. I personally think it was the best Star Wars movie I have seen to date. I’ve never been a huge fan. Just a passive one, so this really stuck with me. Plus it doesn’t hurt Kylo is a cutie LOL."


My choice is...................Kubo and the two strings


"This one was so good and do not diss it just cos it is animated. Shame on you ;) Watch it!"



Next, Book favorite:
Up first is my pick............Cherish Hard by Nalini Singh


"Best book is harder. I read lots of good ones, but not a single amazing one. SO how to choose from equally good books? I will therefore choose the one with the best accents, Cherish hard by Nalini Singh.The narrators male voice was suberb."



Next, Carole's choice..............The Tercentennial Baron by Will Damron


"I had a couple excellent ones this month. However, I think I’ll have to stick with this. It was an audiobook and I was so glued to the story. I didn’t want to stop listening! Such a good story. I loved the Baron the most. I WANT MORE!"

(Pssst, look both Carole and I picked audio!)

Lastly, cover (a new category for the new year)

Carole's choice......

"This cover certainly stuck with me. It is a simple but beautiful in my opinion. The cover is what drew me in to give this short story a try."

My choice...................


"Carole was talking about covers and I was all, I do not have an amazing one! So I will go with the cutest one, and the one that made me want to buy a dress"

  2. Oh I love your list of favorites. I adored Cherish Hard but I think I am one of the select few that didn't care too much for the new Star Wars.

  3. I LOVED The Last Jedi. I'm not a Star Wars fan. I've barely tolerated the past movies but Force Awakens was better than the ones before and TLJ had me hooked! Can't actually wait for 9 now. I'm desperate to know how this trilogy ends!

  8. There seems to be so many mixed opinions on The Last Jedi! I'm so glad you enjoyed it though. Sure it has some issues but I can't understand all the hate for it, I mean, it was fun!

  11. I enjoyed The Last Jedi. I don't think it was as good as Rogue One, but I thought it was better than The Force Awakens. I still need to try Nalini Singh's non paranormal books.
