January Round Up

I feel like January was a whirl wind month in the blogosphere. There was a lot going on. To start with I read 10 books, which i feel is pretty good. But is it sustainable?

  1. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  2. Shorecliff by Ursula DeYoung
  3. Promise Land by Jessica Lamb-Shapiro
  4. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
  5. The Missing Shade of Blue by Jennie Erdal
  6. Barracuda by Christos Tsiolkas
  7. Under The Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan
  8. A Spear of Summer Grass by Deanna Raybourn
  9. Why Are You So Sad by Jason Porter
  10. The Golden Day by Ursula Dubosarsky

I also participated in Jazz Age January hosted by Leah at Books Speak VolumesBloggiesta – a weekend of working together to clean up our blogs, and I launch a new feature on my blog called Cover Wars.

Things don’t look to be slowing down for February. I will be hosting my first give away during the  Literary Blog Hop hosted by Leeswammes’ Blog, happening February 8-12. So far 39 bloggers are participating! This overlaps slightly with Literary Love hosted by Doing Dewey, From Isi, Estella’s Revenge and Love at First Book taking place from February 10-14.

I will also be in London for a week and will hopefully have time to take in some bookishness.


  1. Congratulations on reading 10 books for January! I read nine but I’m not sure if I can keep a steady pace in the coming months.I’ve heard great things about The Goldfinch. I read your review and saw that you weren’t mighty impressed by it. I’ll give it a try perhaps this year.
