January 2014 Recap!

January has been an AMAZING reading month for me. I not only read a lot, most of them were books I enjoyed!

The Books

  • I read a total of 17 books this month! I think that is a good start to my yearly goal of 150, gives me room in case a slack off at all.
  • Of these books, 6 were 5 stars, 9 were 4 stars and the last 2 were 3 stars. Not too bad!
  • The most popular review I wrote this month was Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris. I also did a recap/mini reviews on 3 of the books I read.
  • My favorite book of the month would be a tie between Winger by Andrew Smith and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi.

Other things on the Blog

  • Ransom Riggs came to Anderson’s and I wrote up an event recap about how wonderful the experience was.
  • One of the less stressful, low pressure reading challenges I am working on this year is the A-Z challenge. Check out what I am planning on reading for that!
  • My most popular Top Ten Tuesday was Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist. I am still lusting after a few of these.

Favorite Non-Book related things

  • I am OBSESSED with the Frozen soundtrack. I have it on replay like it is no one’s business. Also this article on Frozen.
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf for my 3DS. It has been awhile since I’ve been into a game as much as I’ve been into this game. It might have been Pokemon X.
  • I started rewatching The Office for the umpteenth time. This show will never get old and it is perfect to put on while I’m cleaning.

Things I’m excited for in Febuary

  • I cannot wait to get my hands on Split Second by Kasie West. I’m also planning on reading Fire & Flood, Faking Normal and The Winner’s Curse.
  • My friend and I are planning on going out for Galentine’s Day. If you don’t know what that is you should watch more Parks & Recreation.
  • There aren’t any exciting book signings/events in my area in Febuary, but there are plans to meet up with some of my book friends. We all know book friends are the best kind of friends.

    I’m hoping to read Winger soon – I’ve seen so many awesome reviews for it. I got through 11 books last month, but my goodreads goal for 2014 is only 100. I have no idea what Galentine’s Day celebrates so now I’m curious! Have fun on GD anyway. 🙂
