The Month That Was... January 2014

I squeezed in my prescribed 10 books this month, some great and some not so great. I've set myself the ambitious goal of getting my NetGalley ratio to 90% for Review Copy Cleanup *bites nails*. I appear to have mostly been reading books with blue covers. I blame the weather. More colours to come in February! I hope.

I also have a giveaway running for The Dark Inside (UK only).

Here's what made it onto the blog...


5 stars awarded to: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh, The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes and She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedwick.

Disappointed with: Pawn by Aimee Cater

Read and awaiting review: Cemetery Girl by Charlaine Harris + Christopher Golden and The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith.

  1. What a great month some nice books there.

  2. I am all about getting my netgalley score up too! I have been working hard on it. Every time I review a book on there I go straight to my ratio to see what it changed to!!
