What I Read in January

"The only important thing in a book is the meaning that it has for you"   W. Somerset Maugham

Last year I took part in a reading challenge with some friends in which there were 52 different categories to read though the year.  Although I didn't read the 52, I am happy that at least I read more books than the year before.  This year I won't intend to achieve a number, instead I will read books that I love.  

The royal we by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (2)
This book is a fictional tale inspired by Kate Middleton and Prince William.   The book includes interesting details about the royal life, besides that it isn't funny.  It has a boring plot, stereotypical characters and a lot of drama.  I really wish I have not wasted my time on it.  

What she knew by Gilly Macmillan (4)
A really good thriller that takes place in Bristol, England.  A 8 year old boy, Ben, got lost while hiking with his mom.  The book covers 9 days after his disappearance and how difficult and stressing this time was for the family and the police.   Although it was a bit sad,  it's a very well written page turner.  

Other books I recommend:
La catedral del mar (Cathedral of the sea). Ildefonso Falcones    Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
