I feel as though the days between Christmas and today have gone in a single blink of my eye and suddenly it’s February. January felt like a busy month, although looking back I’m not entirely sure why! I’m pleased with myself, though; I spent nearly the entire month writing my 500 words a day, and it’s turned into an actual habit, which is what I aimed for in the beginning.
Alongside this, I still managed to read 9 books. They are as follows:
- The Queen’s Vow, C.W. Gortner
- Ghost Story, Jim Butcher
- The Duchess War, Courtney Milan
- Blackout, Connie Willis
- All Clear, Connie Willis
- Life of Pi, Yann Martel
- Heat Stroke, Rachel Caine
- Fever, Mary Beth Kean
- Shadow on the Crown, Patricia Bracewell
I’m as bad at reviewing as ever, unfortunately. The last two books will get reviewed this month at least, so it doesn’t look too bad. I should also mention that I’m in the middle of two other books, the big Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy omnibus and Guns, Germs, and Steel, which is taking me eons to read. I’ll need to read more non-fiction in February to make up for the complete lack of it this month.
Favorite of the Month
Actually not a particularly easy choice, but I got so absorbed in these two books that I had to highlight them. Almost everything I read this month was great, though – the only book I wouldn’t really recommend is Heat Stroke.
How was your reading month?
