Wrapping up January

In January I read five books.

  1. Broken Harbor
  2. The Dazzling Heights
  3. The Trespasser
  4. Theft by Finding
  5. The Hate U Give

My hope for the next couple of months is to get halfway through my reading challenge of 90 books. I also read two books for Shelflove Crate’s challenge. The two books were Theft by Finding and The Hate U Give.

I also visited five bookstores which can be found on my blog under Top Five Bookstores.

Here is the hope of many more books read and many more bookstores visited!

The Dazzling Heights

I should forewarn you that this post will have spoilers. I just can’t help myself!

I read The Thousandth Floor and absolutely loved the storyline and when The Dazzling Heights came out, I just couldn’t help but buy the book to read it and continue the story. I will be honest with you I was hoping for Avery and Atlas to stay together. I was hoping their love story would last and when I got to the point where they decided to end it and he decided Dubai was where he was going to go I about cried. I had to put the story down and take a moment to let it all sink in. The hopes I had for this couple just got crushed! Poor Avery never asked to be perfect and be looked upon as the perfect child where everything was handed to her. The one thing she truly wanted was denied.

Another character that had me spinning was Calliope. She is just someone you want to hate but at the same time can’t help but love throughout this story. Her mother should have curved the want for expensive things but at the same time, they were not in the best of situations because of their social status. She seemed to only want a true relationship with Atlas even after she marked him for a con. She only had true faults and an upbringing from her mother to deal with. This was her only true downfall in my opinion.

This story was just one I could not put down when I started to read it. I cannot wait for the third book in the series to come out!
