January Wrap Up and Book Haul

And just like that, the first month of 2015 is almost history. And what do I have to show for it? Well….. I read a lot? I’m sorry I haven’t been as active here as I thought I’d be. I’ve been expending all my energies over at The Book Wars so BM has drawn the short straw. But on to better things (now) and let’s see how I’ve done on the reading front this month:

Books (including picturebooks, manga, graphic novels) read: 68
Books from the library: 14
Review books read: 14
Books from the TBR pile: 2
Longest book: Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan at 592 pages
Most awesome book of the month: Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire (SO GOOD!!!)
Most disappointing book of the month: The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
