January Recap

January Wrap-up!

The weather here in VA is freaking crazy. 15 degrees and snowing one day, 70 degrees the next, wind and rain storms another. What. The. Fudgenuggets. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE WINTER! NOW. Out of my system.
I've officially made it to the 3 month mark for my new job.  Which means I now have health insurance! WOOT.  The company went through a restructure on  Monday, so we're in readjustment mode.  BUT so far so good!

This month wasn't too shabby as far as reading goes. I read some greats and I read some duds.

Books read:
 
 
StolenThe Fault in Our StarsLips Touch: Three TimesThrone of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)

1. Stolen (Lucy Christopher) 3.5/5

DNF:
The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis1. Obsidian (Jennifer L. Armentrout) - I read up until page 228 so I'm counting this towards my total reads for 2013. WHAT. 2/5
 
 
2. The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis (Sharon Ledwith)- This was supposed to be FOR REVIEW, but after 20% I just couldn't do it. I'm not going to force myself to finish a book in order to write a negative review.

  1. Wow 10 books plus another that you DNFed! My problem isn't posting the reviews, it's making the time to read more books. I'll be super happy if I read 5 in February, forget 10!
