Just like everybody else I have absolutely no idea where January went! It flew by but I managed to get a decent about of books read and reviewed so I'm pleased with my productivity in January.

How about you guys - did you have a good January?


  1. Some awesome reads and events, girl! You rock! Just before Feb blew in, I sent off my first revision for my first WIP. I'm excited, yay!

    Have a great February!

  2. I read both Hush, Hush and Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick, as well as 'Salem's Lot by Stephen King (for the 2011 Stephen King Reading Challenge). All of these have been reviewed on my blog.

    Also, I started Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins a couple days ago, but I'm going to count it as a February book.

  3. Wow, what a lot of books coming in and books being reviewed. You do so much! I had a pretty good January as well, though I'm thinking February is going to be utter madness..


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
