» January Books

In my quest to read 25 books this year, I’m on my way with my reads from this month:

4 down!


4. Await Your Reply by Dan Chaon. I, um, didn’t really like this book. I wanted to! I really, really wanted to! But I didn’t. I finished it. And it was interesting. But the pace and how things are uncovered for the reader were both sort of infuriating to me.

3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. I have read this many, many times. But it was wonderful all the same.

2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I adore John Green’s writing. I credit Temerity Jane for alerting me to his awesomeness. I have read most of his books in the past 6 months, and I couldn’t wait for the library to get this one in, so I bought it on Amazon. You guys, it’s been a long time since a book made me cry like this. It was very, very good.

1Artemis Fowl: the Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer. This is the second book in the set. I’m really getting into this series. I can hardly wait for the library to get in the next one so I can continue.
In addition, I started reading Run by Ann Patchett (I finished it today! but it didn’t count for January), and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Plus, I moved on to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and I am reading my textbooks. :)

    Did you get an autographed copy of the John Green book?

    I have mixed feelings about Green. I really loved Looking for Alaska, but I vehemently hated the rest. But you and Elizabeth and the rest of the blog world love this book. I think I shall put in on my library queue and wait three years for it to be available, and THEN agree with you. Maybe.

    The Fault in our Stars is the first John Green book I’ve read. This book made me weepy and do the ugly cry, I loved it so.

    I didn’t like Await Your Reply, either. I’m glad someone else agrees with me!
