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.

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?
