Reading Roundup January 2017
Here’s what I read in January:
Books (paper and Kindle)
All The Rage by Courtney Summers
Court of Thorns and Roses by Sara J. Maas
Recipes for Love and Murder by Sally Andrew
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
The Cold Between by Elizabeth Bonesteel
Twelve Impossible Things Before Breakfast by Jane Yolen (short stories)
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
In The Year of The Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Bao Lord
Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Peñaflor
The BFG by Roald Dahl
The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki
Giant Days #1 by John Allison
Giant Days #2 by John Allison
Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier
Some number crunching:
Of the 15 books read, 14 were library books from various library systems. Including the audiobooks, which were also re-reads, in a sense. i’d read them, but never listened before. The Jane Yolen short stories were in a book I’d had on my shelf for a while. So the not-buying books is holding.
I read four graphic novels, with nary a superhero to be found. I’m learning that the field of graphic novels encompasses really interesting slice of life, ordinary day stories, told with art and frames, as well as the superhero stuff. Definitely want to keep exploring.
What reading does February hold? I’m not sure where my whims and my library holds queue will take me, but definitely back for more graphic novels.
