January Wrap Up

Oh, January. January, January, January. How can you already be gone? We had such a good time together, January! You brought me my 25th birthday. Uh, I mean 35th. Hee. You brought my 8th year of blogging anniversary, which I managed, yet again, to fail to mention. You brought sun, snow, sleet, lots and lots of rain, and wind. OMG the wind. You came and you went in the snap of the fingers, the blink of an eye, the click of the tongue. And now, you’re gone.

We had a good time though, didn’t we January?

And holy cow, I did I read a lot of books while you were here.

  1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  3. The Stuff of Legend: Omnibus 1 by Mike Raicht
  4. The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
  5. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, read by David Case
  6. Splintered by A. G. Howard
  7. The Stuff of Legend: A Joker’s Tale by Mike Raicht
  8. The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett, read by Stephen Briggs
  9. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
  10. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
  11. A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett, read by Stephen Briggs
  12. Wonder Show by Hannah Barnaby
  13. Chiggers by Hope Larson
  14. Smile by Raina Telgemeier

I read so much in fact, that I didn’t manage to really review anything. Except Gone Girl, but I just had to get that youknowwhat off my chest. It was a weight, I tell you. Oh, and sort of The Count of Monte Cristo. THAT was a different sort of weight. I also reviewed The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry from last year, which I adored.

Favorite book of the month was probably either Anna and the French Kiss or Splintered by A. G. Howard. It’s a toss-up. Least favorite…um…probably the Count. Which I hate, but, oh well. C’est la vie.

How was your January? Read anything I need to read? What did you love? What did you, well, not so love?

  1. Wow, you really did get a lot read!! And I too can’t believe the month is gone already! I can’t wait to read Anna and the French Kiss eventually!

  2. January and I had a fabulous time together as well. Yahoo! Congrats on your blogversary and happy 25th (hehe) I loved a bunch of books this month, I don’t think I can choose just one. Here’s to a fab February!

  3. January was freakin’ awesome when it came to books. I managed to read 15 and almost all of them were spectacular. February, though…I haven’t finished one. Why does it always seem to go like that??

  4. Wow! What a great way to start off the year!! Happy belated birthday and happy blogiversary!! I’m got Gone Girl on my shelf and that book has me curious. LOTS of very different feelings on this one!

  5. I’m a little shocked that it is February already myself! I also reviewed Wild in January, although I read it right after Christmas. I think it was one of my favorites of late.
    Congrats on reading so many great books in January. 🙂
