Admittedly, my reading is off to a slow start. I only read four books in the first month of the year. By the way, my challenge for this year is to read one book each month that was made into a movie. I read two in January that would fill this gap, but I'm choosing to count just one.

One of my favorite rom-coms, "The Wedding Date" was based on this book. I've owned a copy of the book for years and finally got around to reading it. It's a good thing I read Harry Potter right before this because it had me in British mode. There's lots of British humor and lingo, but I still laughed. Some of the secondary characters in the movie get more attention in print, and there's more dimension in the main characters. I still love the movie, but I enjoyed the book too.

I'm finally working on finishing the series. This book was the darkest and most angst-filled so far. I had a little trouble working through it. Plus it's more than 800 pages. There was a lot of talking and information, but the action picked up towards the end. I'm looking forward to the sixth book now.

This is one of my favorite authors. I follow her on every social medium, and I recall her posting lots of dance party videos while she was writing this book. I now know why. It's dark, emotional, and a bit gut-wrenching at times. But I love these characters. It was good to pick up with them after "Left Drowning."

I wanted to start my year of reading with a flirty, steamy read. This was perfect. I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.
