January ended up being a pretty good reading month for me. Probably because I did all of those mini-reviews in December so I had to keep reading in order to keep blogging. Nothing like a little pressure to get me going. I read a pretty diverse pile of books as well (and look, Ben, only two YA books!).
In January I read:
- The World We Found by Thrity Umrigar
- Out of Breath by Blair Richmond
- Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling (audio)
- The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker
- Packing for Mars by Mary Roach (audio)
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
- When Elves Attack by Tim Dorsey (audio)
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
- The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt
In addition to the links above, I reviewed The Poisonwood Bible, and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. I also shared the authors whose next book I am anxiously awaiting, Ingrid Michaelson’s new album, and I posted my 2011 wrap-ups: reading stats and new goals; my favorite albums; my husband’s top ten of 2011; and my favorites of the year.
My favorite book this month was The Fault in Our Stars. Naturally.
I must go now and continue my weekend of doing grown-up things like going to the theater and buying houses and naming babies. But leave me a comment and let me know how 2012 started out for you!
