Month in Review: January 2011

I've decided to keep track of my reading and challenges a bit more this year through a monthly post. I'll list out what I read throughout the month and how I'm doing on the challenges I've joined.

Books Read in January: 6
I read a total of six books in January. Three were adult fiction novels:
Blue by Lou Aronica

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

Three were memoirs.
Picking Cotton by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and Ronald Cotton

Reviews Written: 3
This month, I wrote three full book reviews (you can click on the links above to read them) and eight mini reviews of children's books.

  3. Congratulations on a great month of reading! I love doing monthly wrap-up posts to see how I'm progressing. It's also a great way to look back over the course of the year.
