January Wrap Up

Can you believe that January is already over?  The month completely flew by.  I managed to read 12 books (see below) and I got started on 4 of the 5 challenges I signed up for this year.  That being said, I did even make a tiny dent in my TBR pile.  I read one (!) book that I has been sitting around for a while and that is it.  I had a bunch of galleys to catch up and all the library books I requested in November became available this month.  So hopefully in February, the majority of what I read will be books I already own.

Regarding personal goals, I am struggling to stay on my training schedule for the half marathon.  I was doing really good and then I had a rough week and last week was just okay.  If I can't get my butt back on track this week, I am not sure that I will be ready enough to participate.  I want to do it, I am just being kind of lazy.  Hopefully next month I will have better news about that.

Anyway, here is what I read I in January:

1.) The Last Romanov by Dora Levy Mossanen
2.) Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
3.) The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
4.) Three Maids for a Crown by Ella Chase Brown
5.) Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
6.) Agent 6 by Tom Rob Smith
7.) Nefertiti by Michelle Moran
8.) Mistress of the Monarchy by Alison Weir
9.) Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves
10.) The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance by Elna Baker
11.) Faithful Place by Tana French
12.) Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

How did January go for you?

  2. You did 50% better, and you have a couple I have read, and are interested in. Have you reviewed Nefertiti yet? I read it a couple years ago and really got into it.
