January has very much been a read what you feel like month. I binged on Seanan McGuire, read 16 books in total and have fallen behind in writing up reviews (again). There was a Bout of Books and my 2013 Translation Challenge kicked off (please stop by the linky list and check out the participating blogs). February will definitely be focusing back onto the review shelf. There’s some amazing books out in the next few months and I need to get back in the habit of writing reviews straight away. That way I don’t get the characters’ names wrong!
Here’s what made it onto the blog…
5 stars awarded to: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson.
Disappointed with: Lament by Maggie Stiefvater.
I shared my further adventures with the Black Dagger Brotherhood after reading one too many over the Christmas holidays. The monthly round-up was instigated with It’s not Monday… December Round-Up. There’s a fabulously in-depth Q+A with C.W. Gortner around historical fiction and his new novel. The Waterstones 11 were announced for 2013 and I picked out four of the titles that I’d like to read. A lovely PR company sent me a book from The Folio Society in exchange for a link and I unearthed a few more beauties to drool over. I shared the many books that I’d added onto my wishlist so far this year and put the feelers out for guest reviewers.
