Month in Review: January 2012

At the end of my first month of focusing on reading and reviews rather than writing, I must say I'm pleased with the progress I've made I've pushed myself to read more and managed to review seven out of nine books that I read.  Here's a look at what I accomplished on the reading front in January 2012:

The first thing I finished in January was George R. R. Martin's A Dance with Dragons, book five of his epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire.  I was overjoyed at finishing this book, though mostly because I'd been listening to all five audiobooks more or less straight through.  I'm glad I read it but I'm also happy to wait however long for the next installment while I immerse myself in novels with fewer characters and more plot.  For now at least.  When I finished that one, I went on to read the following nine books:

2. 11/22/63 by Stephen King:
3. The Godfather by Mario Puzo
4. Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman
5. The Code of the Woosters by P. G. Wodehouse
6.  Thank You, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse
7. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
8. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
9. Right Ho, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse

What's Coming Up?

In February, I plan to continue reading as much as possible and may even try and read ten full new books.

Here's a look at a few things I've got my eye on:

Feed by Mira Grant (as part of the Feeding My Book Addiction Horror readalong in honor of Valentine's Day.)
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Round Ireland with a Fridge by Tony Hawks
The Rook by Daniel O'Malley
Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
Mistery by Stephen King

Those are just seven possible books I may review.  Perhaps I'll toss in another P G. Wodehouse novel, as there are several left I wish to read.

If you've read something lately that you think I should check out or have read something on my reading list you have an opinion on, please feel free to hit the comments!
