Book summary:


Thomas Eriksson thinks he has it all figured out.



"People crossed the street when they saw me. I’m not really sure why that was. I mean, okay, I might have looked a bit intimidating if I was being truthful with you. I’d changed since New York. New York represented a life that wasn’t real, not truthfully, anyway. No, New York was the “young, immature, in love, idiot" side of Tom. The “Tie-Dye Tom of New York City” didn’t exist anymore. Tie-Dye Tom was dead."

January Mac Lochlainn thinks she’s her own worst enemy.

"I quit Berkeley. Threw away a full scholarship. Plans, you ask? What plans?"

But they’re both wrong.



        Few months ago I've read Callum and Harper aka the first book in this series and I adored it. It was so heartbreaking and I couldn't stop reading it. I've realized that I have some thing for books that deal with people form dysfunctional families and hard lives. So I was so excited to read this one.

         Thomas and January was a really interesting book. We have Thomas who is a guy with huge circle of friends and works in music industry but at the same time he looks so inaccessible. He always wears black and because of his height he sometimes seems scary. At the other side we have January with a huge family and she is the eldest. Yes, other members of her family have names by months in a year. She was always drawn to music and listening to new bands but unfortunately she couldn't do that for living. Well at least not until she met the Thomas. Soon enough Thomas' boss hires her and she has to work together with Thomas as a team. Not an easy task considering the circumstances - let's just say that their meeting wasn't the best in the world.

        As much as I enjoyed this story I couldn't say it blow me away. January wasn't the girl I could easily get and relate to. She does some contradictory things. I was afraid that other Fisher's book would be like this one, but luckily Vain put the things on the right track. All in all this was one easy and enjoyable read but nothing more than that.

Rating: 4 stars.

Until the next time,

  1. Even though this didn't astound you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I actually have a copy of Callum and Harper on my kindle somewhere, so I may make a start on that before attempting more from this author. :) Great review!

  2. I absolutely adore the cover of this book Tanja! It's so quirky and gorgeous and would definitely pop out at me from a shelf. It sounds like it was as pretty solid read overall despite the fact that January wasn't someone you connected with, and sometimes a simple enjoyable read is just what I'm looking for:) Thanks for the review!

  5. I haven't read Callum & Harper yet, but I totally intend to, and surprisingly enough, this cover is even more gorgeous than the last. I'm sorry it didn't blow you away, but since it was still enjoyable, I'll definitely read both as soon as I get a chance.
    Great review!

  8. I really want to start Callum and Harper. Thomas and January also sounds great :) I'm sad that January wasn't that relatable, but it sounds great otherwise. Awesome review!
