Book Recommendations for January

I haven't felt much like reading in awhile, but I still have a couple book recommendations for you!

Frostfire- Kanin Chronicles by Amanda Hocking

If you loved any of my recommendation for Fae novels, like this one, or these, then you will love the Kanin Chronicles series by Amanda Hocking.

It was a great adventure, mystery book. It's got a strong female character Bryn, who despite all odds, succeeds at whatever she chooses!

You are rooting for her the entire time, even though sometimes you just want to smack some sense into her! This three book series is worth your time!

The Frostfire description is:
Hidden deep in the heart of a snow-covered wilderness lies the secret kingdom of the Kanin—a magical realm as beautiful as it is treacherous...
Bryn Aven has never fit into Kanin society. Her blond hair and blue eyes set her apart as an outsider—a half-blood unable to hold a respectable rank. But she's determined to prove herself as a loyal protector of the kingdom she loves. Her dream is to become a member of the King's elite guard, and she's not going to let anything stand in her way...not even her growing feelings for her boss, Ridley Dresden. A relationship between them is strictly forbidden, but Bryn can't fight her attraction to him. And she's beginning to think he feels it too. Meanwhile, there's an attack on the kingdom—one that will test Bryn's strength like never before. Finally, she has the chance to confront Konstantin Black, the traitor who tried to kill her father years ago. It's up to Bryn to put a stop to him before he strikes again. But is she willing to risk everything to protect a kingdom that doesn't accept her for who she really is? And when her mission brings her closer to Ridley, will she be able to deny her heart?


Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series: The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan

I have been on the wait-list for months of books, so I'm always trying to fit in filler books. I always get on Goodreads to see book recommendations based on past books I have read. This was a recommendation I received.

This is a young adult novel, but it's fun to read and I could see myself reading this when our child gets to be 9 or 10. They would really enjoy the adventure that it holds. I haven't read the whole series, but the first couple books were really good!

I also love when stories tie in Greek mythology. I just find it so interesting! Plus, you never know when that trivia will come up on Jeopardy or trivia night!

Here is the description for Percy Jackson: The Lightening Thief


Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

These are some fun reads! It's nothing too serious, but who really wants to start off the new year with something depressing or sad? Not this girl!

Happy Reading!

Until next time,

Kara
