January 2013 Reading Recap



I feel like I sort of got back on track this month! Not a bad reading month at all! 

Here's what I managed:

What We Saw At Night by Jaquelyn Mitchard: A group of friends who hang out in the night because of a disease they have, see something strange at an apartment building that makes them begin an investigation they might not want to begin!

The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan: A senior high school boy is left a set of cds from a boy from the previous year which recounts the tragedy that happened that year.

Case File 13: Zombie Kid by J. Scott Savage: What happens when you turn into a zombie? You enjoy it for awhile then make your friends help you fix yourself!

Reached by Ally Condie: After fighting a plague, the Matched trilogy concludes!

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss: Three stories come together in an unusual way, with a book the center of them all.

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman: Seraphina discovers a big secret about herself and makes her think of dragons in a whole new light.

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi: The story of Aria and Perry continues as they try to find the Still Blue and save their people.

Among the Nameless Stars by Diana Peterfreund: What happened when Kai left the North Estage, a prequel to For Darkness Shows the Stars.

Just One Day by Gayle Forman: Allyson has a one day adventure in Paris with hot Dutch dude and ponders for the rest of the year about what really happened. (review to come soon)

Favorites of the month: The History of Love, Just One Day and Through the Ever Night, followed closely by Seraphina. Loved them all! 

Plans for February:
  • finish Wolf Hall 
  • start another read along: Vanity Fair (want to join in?)
  • re-read The Scarlet Pimpernel for book club
  • read Mind Games ARC
  • read The Runaway King ARC
  • read Old Man's War for a SciFi experience!
  • read another lucky random new book waiting here on the shelves
How'd your first month of the year go?

    You had a good month. I thought it rushed by awfully quick but I am happy with what I was able to read.

    Here's hoping for an even better February.

  6. Looks like an awesome month. I had a pretty good one too. I got through 3.5 books, which is way good for me since I barely manage 1-2 books a month, lol.

  9. January was okay, but I'm not complaining!! It was a good way to start of the year, at least reading-wise!
