Reading Roundup January 2017

February 2, 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

Graphic Novels

This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki

Giant Days #1 by John Allison

Giant Days #2 by John Allison

Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier

So, that’s 15 books read in January, and $15 in the lunchbox for EveryLibrary

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.
