January 2018 Books

Here we go again! Kicking off a new year of book blogging. I once again set my sights on 175 books. I decimated that total last year, but I think that was highly unusual for me. However, today, on this first day of February, I have a solid start, with 19 books. Now, to be fair, the first 18 were MN Book Award selections, but I did read them. On my own, I chose and read one single book in January, which just leaves the field wide open for February. The first 18 are listed in alphabetical order by title, as I can’t remember exactly what order I read them.

January: (19 books)

  1. Bearer of the Pearls – Terry Faust
  2. The Bite of Winter – Bethany Helwig
  3. Bold Women of Medicine: 21 Stories of Astounding Discoveries, Daring Surgeries, and Healing Breakthroughs – Susan M. Latta
  4. City of Angels – Kristi Belcamino
  5. The Devils You Know – MC Atwood
  6. Echo Island – Edward Karlow
  7. The Exo Project – Andrew DeYoung
  8. Just a Girl – Carrie Mesrobian
  9. Kollected: The Lake Hunters – JS Welles^
  10. The Last Thing You Said – Sara Biren
  11. Nico & Tucker – Rachel Gold
  12. Painted Hives – Jay Ebben
  13. Piper – Jay Asher & Jessica Freeberg
  14. Sucktown, Alaska – Craig Dirkes
  15. Thief’s Cunning – Sarah Ahiers
  16. Things I’m Seeing Without You – Peter Bognanni
  17. The Town Build on Sorrow – David Oppegaard
  18. Unfolding – Jonathan Friesen
  19. Stud in the Stacks – Pippa Grant^

There you have it. My strong start to the year. Of the Book Award books, I liked City of Angels, The Last Thing You Said, The Exo Project, and Things I’m Seeing Without You. I can’t really give you more information, just that I liked those.

Stud in the Stacks was my pick to start the year and what a pick it was! This is a story about a male librarian who reads romance novels. It’s like a love letter to romance told from a guy’s perspective and it’s funny. I loved it. Great pick to start my reading year.

Okay then, 19 books so far. On pace to read 228 books. We shall see how it goes!

Happy reading.
