Showin' My Books - January '17

Time to link up and talk books!

Life According to Steph

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick (audiobook, read by the author) - I'm a fan, to be sure, and I enjoyed this. I literally laughed out loud several times. There's nothing really juicy or scandalous; it's just a fun listen.

The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison (audiobook) - This book is messed up, but I liked it. I really appreciated the audio version, as they used a male voice for the FBI agent and a female voice for the survivor being interviewed. The twist was kind of anti-climactic for me but overall it was good in that twisted, creepy, disturbing way.

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch - I read this for my real-life book club and I know a lot of my fellow bloggers had this on their best of 2016 lists, but it just didn't do it for me. I kept going with it because I was interested in the story and what would happen with Jason, but eventually I got so confused that I didn't much care anymore. Unlike The Martian, with this one I couldn't get past the science-y stuff.

Every Little Kiss by Susan Hatler - After Dark Matter I needed some total chick lit. I found out about this book from Bookbub and I think it was free on Amazon. It was pretty predictable but it served its purpose. It's the first in a series and I could maybe see myself reading another one when I need some book candy.

What's on your bookshelf lately?
