I have so very much to chat about this week, so let's get to it!
Let's first start with a great big CONGRATULATIONS for Carol of Carol's Notebook. She was the big WINNER of the Candlewick Giveaway that closed on Friday! Happy Reading Carol!!
Winter's Respite Readathon that I participated in this last week.
Minutes Listened: 202 minutes
Pages Read: 514 pages
Books Completed: Ape House by Sara Gruen, Ms. Marvel, Volume 1: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson, Are You My Mother? by Alison Bechdel
Not bad, not bad at all. I was hoping to finish one more book, especially considering that I needed it read by today for an online book club. BUT, I should finish it probably in the next day or so.
Last, but not least, let's take a look at the month in review. January proved to be a successful month for reading. Sadly, I am way behind in writing reviews for these books, but that is my goal to catch up on this week.
The TOP POSTS from the month were twofold this time around. The Candlewick Giveaway received the most hits, but 2015: My Year to Persevere received the most comments.
The TOP PIC was from the big snowstorm that I got stuck in during the Bout of Books Readathon. There was a LOT of snow that week!
My final list of BOOKS READ for the month ended with a good number. According to my Goodreads goal, I am currently three books ahead of schedule. Two readathons in one month really helped with that!
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner
- The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
- The Death Cure by James Dashner
- Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
- The Arrival by Shaun Tan
- Saga, Volume 3 by Brian K. Vaughan
- Saga, Volume 4 by Brian K. Vaughan
- Ape House by Sara Gruen
- Ms. Marvel, Volume 1: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson
- Are You My Mother? by Alison Bechdel
Here's to hoping that February proves to be just as amazing as January has been!
Did you participate in the Winter's Respite Readathon? How did you do? How was your month of January?
