January Wrap Up

It’s the end of January which just plain sucks. School goes back on the 4th and my house is going to be so empty without my little dude around. Plus I feel like I’ve hardly seen my daughter at all as she has been away for a massive chunk of the holiday. Literally 4 weeks out of 7 she has been away. Oh well, at least I can go back to reading during the day while ignoring the housework. I’ll take that as a positive.

Books Read – I started the year off really well. My reads were pretty good with a 5 star thrown in the mix.

Roam  by C.H. Armstong – DNF
The Heart Of Stone by Ben Galley – Review to come
Conspiracy of Ravens by Lila Bowen – Review to come
God’s War by Kameron Hurley – Review to come
Who’s Afraid by Maria Lewis – Review to come
Whisper by Lynetter Noni – Maybe a review to come
Bound by Alan Baxter – Review to come
Cogheart by Peter Bunzl – Review below
Addict by Matt Doyal – Review to come.

 

I’m stoked with what I read. A couple from NetGalley, a self published author and a couple of Australian authors who had been on my shelves for quite a while.

Books purchased – I usually get money for Christmas to go towards books and after getting the first couple in The Shadow series, I picked up the last two as well.

I won’t be purchasing any books in February. Hopefully.

NetGalley feedback – My feedback % has been really low because I’m a click whore and I refuse to stop. One of my aims this year is to improve it. I started at 33% and have worked my way up to 48%. I’m hoping for 50% by the end of Feb and considering I have a couple I need to write-up and that should push me over.

This month I participated in my first readathon, you can find the details for that 24in48 Readathon and Readathon wrap up.
And here are the links to my recent reviews
– Take-Out: And Other Tales Of Culinary Crime by Rob Hart
– Demon’s Mercy by Rebecca Zanetti
– Never Die by Rob J. Hayes

And that’s my month. I hope you have all read some great books.
