The Sunday Salon: January Books Recap [2.5.12]

The Sunday

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:

  1. The World We Found by Thrity Umrigar
  2. Out of Breath by Blair Richmond
  3. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling (audio)
  4. The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker
  5. Packing for Mars by Mary Roach (audio)
  6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  7. When Elves Attack by Tim Dorsey (audio)
  8. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  9. 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 awaitingIngrid 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!

    I had a really good reading month as well, this January. I am still a little in awe of it myself. It looks like on top of reading a lot, you read a lot of really good books as well. I desperately need to read The Fault in Our Stars, don’t I?

    Good luck with all the grown-up things 🙂

    I just finished John Green’s book this morning. What a wonderful read that was!

    One of my 2012 goals was to have a little John Green fest at some point. I have most of his books thanks to my daughter I just need to sit down and get to him. You had a great month girl! Way to go!
