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.


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.


  1. Great job on your goals so far! I am doing monthly updates too, so I can track my progress! :)

    1. Thanks! Here's hoping February is a better month for me :)
