Kickin' In: January 2017

Friday, January 27, 2017

Kickin’ It is a feature at The Bucket List where I round-up the whole month in one post, bringing you reviews you may have missed, other awesome bookish things, and even what I’m currently obsessed with in other media besides books.  Can you believe that January is over? It only seemed like yesterday which we welcomed in the new year. For me, it started a bit rough but I'm working on getting into the swing of things. Here's the cool things that happened this month:

Just One Year by Gayle Forman (5 stars):  Just One Year truly takes readers through a whirlwind of places on an adventure to find love.  It will have you asking for more and rereading its companion novel, Just One Day.

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (4 stars): Passenger by Alexandra Bracken is a fantastical adventure, delving into a clever hunt for the lost astrolabe. Fans of time travel will certainly love this new series and begin counting down the days to the next installment. This fast, amazing tale will have readers begging for answers.

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth (1/17/17): Veronica Roth, author of the best-selling Divergent series, brings a whole new book to the table. I don't know much about it except it's getting mixed reviews. It is also set in space, a galaxy far away, and people have special gifts.

Flame the Mist by Renee Ahdieh (5/16/17): Who else needs a retelling of Mulan in their life?

Bang by Barry Lyga (4/18/17): I can't wait for this one. Barry Lyga, author of the I Hunt Killers series, is one of my favorite authors of all time. In recent years, his books have been hit or miss with me but I'm hoping for the best with Bang.

King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard (2/7/17): I already have this one preordered-- and I have never preordered anything in my life-- but I knew I will need it right as the book hits the shelves. When I start thinking about the cliffhanger Glass Sword had, the size of a whole mountain, I start to hyperventilate so I'm trying to stay calm until this one is in my hands to begin making predictions on what will be happening next to my favorite characters.

How was your January?
