Books Read January 2012

Wow, this is a good start to the year! If I can keep this up, maybe I'll make that lovely 100 books goal, no problem!

Here's what I read this month, with my quick little blurbs and links to my reviews:

Torment by Lauren Kate: Daniel sends Luce to school in California to keep her safe and then she discovers she has a sort of power.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver: Lena has been taught all her life that love is a disease, but then she meets Alex and the questions begin.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: Hazel meets Augustus at a cancer group meeting and they become fast friends.

Persuasion by Jane Austen: Anne gets very nervous to see Captain Wentworth again after eight years of no contact, but quickly calms down when she realizes he is probably going to marry Louisa.

I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith: Cassandra and her family live in a run down castle, barely making ends meet, but their lives change when a new family moves to the manor next door.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer: Cinder is a cyborg trained to fix things and her life changes when the prince walks into her shop.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: Lola thinks she is over Cricket, but when he comes back after two years, she's not so sure anymore.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman: After Mia's accident, Mia and Adam live separate lives on opposite ends of the country, but then they get a chance to talk again.

May B. by Caroline Starr Rose: May is sent to be live in help for a new bride, but things do not go quite as planned.

Partials by Dan Wells: Kira risks her life to find the cure to the virus that is killing humanity.

Ah, they were all good! How am I to pick a favorite among this bunch? I can't do it, seriously. My only sadness is that I didn't manage to fit in a non-fiction.

Plans for February:
  • read more adult stuff, but not ALL adult stuff, like Jenny is doing
  • fit in a non fiction... leaning towards Unbroken
  • read another classic for the challenge, perhaps A Long Fatal Love Chase, or Ramona, both love stories for February.
  • read Atonement for book club
  • finish Inheritance and Path of Daggers... please let me finish these books!
  • read The Wise Man's Fear... please let me fit this one in!!
  • I got Overbite in the mail and I love to read that too.
  • most likely I'll read Midnight in Austenland before this month is over too!
Can't wait to get to them all! Wow, I do so love to read!


  1. Wow! Great reading month! I read THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and PERSUASION in January too. :) And I'm dying to get to ANNA and LOLA soon - maybe in March.

    1. They are perfect for a fluffy read, so be in the mood for that sort. I hope you get to them though. Very fun books.

  2. Wow! You managed to read one more book than me this month. Now if we can just keep the momentum going.

    I'm still seething with jealousy that you got to read Partials. :(

    1. I wish I could slip Partials to you...but I should probably take it back on Friday to the next library person. Or then again, maybe you could have it over the weekend and I could take it back Monday?

  3. What a great reading month! Here's to another great month in Feb! I hear good things about Unbroken.

    1. Yes, people have been raving about Unbroken. I'm dying to get to it so I know what all the fuss is about!

  4. I really want to fit The Wise Man's Fear in, too...
