January List Wrap-up (TSS)

I added a lot of books to my list in January, and apparently I was on a romance jag- this is also borne out in what I chose to read in January, which I'll get to in a moment.

Here's what was added, and the review that pushed me over the edge:
The Adoration of Jenna Fox- Kelly at YAnnabe
Free for All by Dan Borschert-mjmbecky at One Literature Nut  (my review)
The Sky Always Hears Me and the Hills Don't Mind by Kristin Cronn-Mills- Abby (the) Librarian
Heist Society by Ally Carter- Liz B at A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy
Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat by Lynne Jonell- Janssen at Everyday Reading
Dedication by Janet Mullany- Ames at Thrifty Reader
Lost by Jacqueline Davies- Corinne at The Book Nest
What the Librarian Did by Karina Bliss- Wendy at The Misadventures of Super Librarian
Her Secret Fling by Sarah Mayberry- Holly at Book Binge
Bossman's Baby Scandal by Catherine Mann (Yes, I KNOW!)- limecello at The Good, The Bad and the Unread
Lead Me On by Victoria Dahl- Kati at Katidom
Almost Like Being in Love by Steve Kluger- Ames at Thrifty Reader

I also read SIX books in January, shocking! Three of them are re-reads from my college days, let's see if you can tell which ones:
  1. The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible by AJ Jacobs (review)
  2. The Lion's Lady by Julie Garwood
  3. Free For All: Oddballs, Geeks, and Gangstas in the Public Library by Don Borchert (review)
  4. Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood
  5. The Gift by Julie Garwood
  6. The Man Most Likely (Harlequin American Romance Series) by Cindi Myers
I started keeping track of Mike's books this year as well. He read seven books in January:
  1. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
  2. Cowboys Full: The Story of Poker by James McManus
  3. Unbelievable: Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena, from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory by Stacy Horn
  4. The Little Sleep: A Novel by Paul Tremblay
  5. Downtown Owl: A Novel by Chuck Klosterman
  6. Searching for El Dorado: A Journey into the South American Rainforest on the Tail of the World's Largest Gold Rush by Marc Herman
  7. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Vintage) by Stieg Larsson
(He's a pretty eclectic reader, can you tell?)

  1. It was a good reading month in your house! Pretty soon, you're going to have to keep track of what the Pirate reads too!

  2. Well, I'm impressed. Love that you give links to the reviews. Haven't read any but yours and Janssen's, but I might! Hope you are staying warm and cozy.

  3. Lisa, I am still on my same book. I am so sad:( Now, I have painted a lot so I guess that makes up for the lack of reading.

    I have never heard of the books you listed except one. I can tell that I haven't been reading my book blogs.

  4. So fun that Mike likes to read--evidently as much as you do. My hubby reads but it takes him a month to get through a book.

  5. Glad to have pushed you "over the edge" with Jenna Fox. :) You'll love it!
