January Reading - Plans for February - Super Bowl Sunday

Wasn't it just Christmas?  January felt like it passed in a blur -- not sure why, but that's how it was for me.  I managed to read (12) book in January - 2 were kids books and 4 were audio books.  I think my favorite book was Bones & All by Camille DeAngelis, but many others were enjoyable as well.

  1. I feel like January was a blur too! I can't believe it's February already.

    1. I remember my mom always saying the older we get the faster it goes -- that does seem to be the case:(

  2. January actually seemed to go at normal speed for me after the frantic blur that was 2014! Looks like you got some great reading done. The Girl on the Train and The Tiny Wife are both on my TBR. We read One Snowy Night a few weeks ago and we loved it. Such a sweet book! Have a great week!

    1. It was a big surprise for me, as someone who normally would not choose this type of book.

    1. Laurel -- all 3 books were good, but I think Life Drawing has a slight edge.

  7. January definitely seems like it flew by. I'm pretty grateful - usually this time of year tends to drag because of how much I really just don't like winter.

    1. Yes, we got 16" more of snow yesterday/today. Spring will be very much welcomed.

  8. My goodness, you read a lot this month! I found January slip by far too quickly, and I read very little compared to what I usually do. Partly, I think it's because my parents were home this Winter instead of being in Florida, and my mother and I do so much together there wasn't lots of time for reading.

    I hope to get to Lost and Found myself, soon. Poor publishers who send me books expecting a prompt review...

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

    1. Lucky you to have times with your parents still:) I know what you mean about not being able to keep up with reviews -- I think publishers know they are taking a chance when they send us books to preview -- we try, but it doesn't always work out for a variety of reasons.

  9. I only read 4 books in January, but I'm quite satisfied with the quality of those books. The Girl on the Train turned out be quite a winner and I've had fun hand selling it at work. I'm eager to give Station Eleven a read since I've heard such good things about it (and I enjoy that genre).

    Wish I could stay home tomorrow and read all day. We got a ton of snow last night and it's very, very cold (subzero temps tonight with dreadful windchills).

    Go Seahawks! :)

  11. I welcomed February. I think it's because we are closer to Spring time. I'm glad you had such a good reading month.

    1. Lisa, yes I did pick some good ones in January, and was thinking how motivating it's been. I plan to be more selective to pick what I read moving forward.

  13. January did speed by. I am glad to see February come, although I have a feeling it will fly by too.

    Sounds like you had a good reading month, Diane! I read about as much as I always do, so am happy with that.

    I hope you have a great week!
