Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2015

It’s already the 5th of February? How did that happen? 
I read twelve books in January. I’m certainly not going to complain about that. Here are the books that filled my month with glorious words:

Dead Wake by Erik Larson*

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Smile by Raina Telgemeier

Drama by Raina Telgemeier

Strange Fruit by Joel Christian Gill*

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

My Sunshine Away by M.O. Walsh

Irritable Hearts by Mac McClelland*

A Tree Born Crooked by Steph Post

My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me by Jennifer Teege*

The Martian by Andy Weir


Favorite Fiction: YOU CAN’T MAKE ME PICK! It’s a tie of awesomeness between The Martian and All the Light We Cannot See

Favorite Nonfiction: Dead Wake

Favorite Graphic Novel/Comic: Smile

How was January for you?

  1. I am so excited to read Dead Wake. Larsen hasn't disappointed yet. I'm glad to see that it was your favourite non-fiction of the month.There was something about January that made it insanely productive reading wise – I finished 14 books. But so far in February, I'm still trying to finish one.


  2. I started scrolling through your list and I was so impressed that I knew all of them. And then I found a few that were new to me! I'm glad you had a great month, Jennifer. May your February reading be just as good!


  3. The Girl on the Train is haunting me! From the Internet, from blogs, and the copy sitting on my dresser! I'm in the middle of two others and have one I want to read before a movie comes out later in February, but this one is just getting to me!


  4. Smile is on my list, and I really have to get Drama, too. I'm so glad you liked The Martian! I enjoyed that book so much (and it was a little unexpected, as I more or less picked it up because of the reviews I'd seen of it – going by the blurb alone, it certainly wasn't a book I'd normally read).


  5. Smile & Drama are both so sweet and fun. You'll like them a lot. I only picked up The Martian because nearly every blogger I know raved about it. Science is NOT my thing and I never would have picked it up on my own. Oh my gosh, though. SO good.
