Bookish January

So, I've decided to jump on the bandwagon with something that I'm hoping will help me stay organized slightly better than I am now. Welcome to my first monthly wrap-up post! This will either stay monthly or if I ever actually manage to stop myself from buying books(!) it might become weekly :)


Books Read

Adult - 16
YA - 13
Picture Books - 13
Non-Fiction - 1

Grand Total - 43

Favorite Book of the Month

A Face Like Glass
There will most definitely be a review of this at some point, Frances Hardinge is a fantastic author and definitely a worthy addition to my favorite authors list.

Reviews

I have been awful with reviews so far this year and this is one of the main things I wanted to really sort out :( I've obviously been reading, I have been starting drafts of reviews but for some reason haven't finished most of them! The ones I have posted have been as part of blog tours... Get organized!

Mistress of the Wind - Michelle Diener

The End & The Long Road - G Michael Hopf

Guest Posts

Feeding the Muse - Rachel Neumeier

Book Hauls

For someone on a book buying ban the number of books that have mysteriously ended up in my house is disgusting! I was going to go through and add up the number of books but couldn't face the shame...

Birthday Edition

Book Haul #60

Book Haul #59

Book Haul #58

Challenge Updates

Goodreads - 43/365

Reading all those picture books to the twins is working out great for my total!

Fairy Tales Retold Challenge - 0/16

Hoping that will change this month! I have Cress so really need to start Cinder - and soon!

2014 Series Challenge 0/12

Although I've read books belonging to various series I've yet to actually finish one!

2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge 7/50

The highest level challenge is 50+ but my actual goal for this one is 200 and I'm more than happy with the number of books I've read so far.
