Books that I read for fun in January 2017 (with mini reviews)

Over the last 2.5  years, I have been documenting the books that I read for fun (and not just for review purposes).  I have decided that I need to continue that as reading is important part of how I relax. Books that I read for fun are books that I have not been asked to review and that I have chosen to read, well because I like to read. In 2015, I read a total of 49 books! In 2016, I read 58 books.  While I don't have a goal in mind for this year, I will continue reading as it is something that I love to do and I like to document the books that I read.  (Please note that if a book looks interesting to you, you can click on the picture of the book and it should take you to it's page on I am an associate through them.)

So....What did I read in January 

I received several new books for Christmas and so I took the opportunity to read a couple of them throughout January.

The first book I read was Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks. I LOVED this book. I laughed. I cried. It was wonderful. I would highly recommend it (and make sure you have a box of tissues next to you as your read. Just a fair warning!).


I also received and read The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines. Chip and Joanna are the hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper show. I have watched it a few times. I love to hear stories of how people succeed in life and this book fit the bill in that. It was interesting to read their backstory and also get some motivation to succeed in things that I am trying to do. It was also to note that Chip Gaines seems to have the philosophy of "Just Do It" that I am trying to implement this year. This is another book that I would recommend.

I have a new series by Nora Roberts ready to read in the next month or so for fun, so I am looking forward to that!

I didn't do a lot of recreational/fun reading this month as I had several books in line that I needed to read for review. I reviewed The Cottage by Michael Phillips, Love Unending by Becky Thompson, Holy Bible for Girls: Journal Edition , and Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig this month.
Here are the books I read for fun in:
Books from 2016
Books from 2015
Books from 2014
