Month in Review: January 2018

Happy February!!! It's hard to believe we are already into the 2nd month of the year - it seems like these days are just flying by already! This year I have decided not to participate in a ton of reading challenges - instead, I am trying to focus on the unread books already sitting on my shelf. To that end, I am participating in #TheUnreadShelfProject2018. I did pretty well this month and have high hopes for the upcoming year!

  1. I plan to read The Woman in the Window. I actually chose Walking the Bones as one of my top 2 favorites:

  2. Hi,
    Great list of books. I'll be checking them out.
    Have a great day!

  3. Oh you had a terrific reading month. I am enjoying Still Me on audio and I agree with you I think The Great Alone will be very good in that version also. I went with the paperback but can always get the audio too a bit later on for a reread. Enjoy the Feb books and stay warm!

  4. 19 books? That's awesome. You read a few that are on my tbr list.

  5. 19 books?! Very impressive! And you have some tempting titles on your list. I've only read one of them, Open House, many years ago (and now I'm Friends with the author on Facebook!). But I'd like to read more.

  6. Wow - that's a lot of books read - so awesome!!

  7. Your reading year got off to a great start with January! Always look forward to a CoHo book! Woman in the Window and Immortalists are both on my stacks.
