Favorite Book Read in January: Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini
Least Favorite Book Read in January: I didn’t DISLIKE any books this month, but I was a bit underwhelmed by The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel.
Book that Most Surprised Me in January: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I was expecting to love it since I love everything by Rowell, but I didn’t realize it had so many fascinating undertones to it.

Updates About My Life This Month
- I’ve made some updates to my pages, and you can now find all of the 2015 challenges I’m participating in under Features, and my review index has been updated to include reviews categorized by not only author but by title and rating as well.
- I had a wonderful birthday this month, and the first month of 2015 has left me feeling really rejuvenated and motivated to get things DONE. Starting with taking the GRE, looking into different job industries, and saving up for some really fun vacations in the spring (like YALLWest!)
- This week I’ll be taking a mini-vacation for a few days and visiting a lot of friends from college. I’ll have some posts scheduled and will catch up on comments as soon as I’m back!
- I’m really, really hoping to further involve myself in the bookish and blogging community this year so if you haven’t already I’d LOVE if you dropped by and said hi or chatted with me on Twitter!
