Month In Review

Is it me or did January seem like a very long month? The good thing is that I was able to get a good start on my reading year by finishing five books. Here are my January reads:

Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier
Lock the Door by Jane Holland
The Woman Who Walked in Sunshine by Alexander McCall Smith
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
The Reactive by Masande Ntshanga

I loved Big Magic and Jamaica Inn. I am glad I read the others although they were not my favorites. Overall though I was happy to see a mix of non-fiction, mystery, and a book from indie press, Two Dollar Radio.

I’m carrying over a few reads into February and I’m determined to finish at least one before I start a new book. It shouldn’t be difficult as I’ve got two that are absolutely fantastic but I’ll tell you about those in another post.

The only thing that was disappointing with my books this month was that I wasn’t able to complete the Japanese Literature reading challenge hosted by Dolce Bellezza. I’m still in the middle of the novel but just won’t get a chance to finish it.

Looking forward to February, there is #ReadSoulLit instagram challenge, InCoWriMo and plenty of new book releases hitting the shelves. How about you, how was your reading month and what are you looking forward to in February?
