The Month That Was... January 2015

2015 has got off to a good start, the holidays helping with a big backlog of books read so the blog looked super active this January! I'm also on track with my reading goal, having read 10 books (without resorting to really short ones). A few disappointing reads but mostly excellent books so far.

Last week I went to an event at HarperCollins for The Fire Sermon. It was great to see some bloggers, new faces as well as people I haven't seen in ages and Francesca was lovely. The book's pretty good too and my review will be up shortly.

Books I'm looking forward to reading in February include The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson, Saga volume 4 and Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller. I also really need to try and fit in some books from my try-to-read-this-year shelf.

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

  1. I just finished The Mime Order a couple of days ago. VERY IMPRESSIVE! :)

  2. That's a mighty impressive line-up of books, missy. Mighty impressive. It's very curious to me that the E Lockhart book cover has been re-designed to echo her newest book -- that hasn't happened yet here in the US, but I reckon it will.

  3. I'm looking forward to reading The Mime Order! I'm glad to hear you liked it.
