January Wrapup 2013



Not only was January a horribly slow reading month for me but I'm way late doing this wrap up post. Sigh!

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Very good but a touch more set up to the rest of the series than I like.



 The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Meh, I didn't hate it but I was expecting better. Something less predictable.



The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
So refreshing reading an adult book. It was funny and sad and just plain beautiful.



Across the Universe by Beth Revis
*points finger gun at head and mimics blowing brains out* 'nuf said.



Favorite of the month was...Hmm, probably The Raven Boys but The History of Love was so refreshing! Least favorite? Um, I'm going to go with the book that made me want to blow my brains out.

  1. It still feels like January to me, so this didn't even seem late. :) Too bad about Across the Universe. I was maybe thinking of starting that series, but maybe not.

    1. Ugh, January, February and March all just blur together in my mind. Least favorite time of the year. :-(

  2. Sometimes I feel like reading an Adult book is refreshing even if I didn't like it as much as I hoped. There is something about switching up genres that sheds a new light on things.

  4. Even on a slow reading month you manage to out read me! I'm staying clear of Mara Dyer at all costs. Based on everyone's reviews it is so not a book for me!
