Month In Review [January 2012]

At the end of each month I'm going to post a Month in Review. Thanks to Crystal at Just Another Book Lovin' Girl for the great idea! Basically it will be a summary of everything that's gone on at i blog 4 books during the month so you can catch up if you missed anything. Here's what happened this month!

Well . . . this year has gotten off to a great start! I've read a ton but have struggled to get back on the blogging/reviewing bandwagon. I saw another blogger refer to it as "reviewers block." That pretty much sums it up for me. That's enough of that, though. Let's get to the summary. I like lists, so that's how I'm posting this each month.

Books Read [14]


Did Not Finish
Unhallowed Ground by Mel Starr

Favorite book this month?
Oh . . . you know how I hate picking favorites! While I read a TON of great books this month (I gave most of them 4-5 stars!!!), I’ll narrow it down to two favorites for this month: Ellie’s Haven by Sharlene MacLaren and Sweeter than Birdsong by Rosslyn Elliott.

Other Noteworthy Posts / Happenings
  • I've been toying with the idea of giving the blog a makeover and finally did. I love the blog templates at Leelou's Blogs!
  • I'm consistently keeping up with my books now on Goodreads. I'm still going back to update from 2010 and 2011 but 2012 stuff will be updated regularly. Looking for something new to read? Check out my past reads or my to-be-read list.
  • Crystal at Just Another Book Lovin’ Girl graciously hosted me for an interview. It was a ton of fun and hopefully you learned something new about me!
I think that about does it for me. What have you been up to this month?!
