January Reading Roundup

reading woman

I read a lot. A LOT. And I know quite a few of you do too. (I’m thinking of you, Emma!) I love to hear about what you’re reading and what you want to read, what you loved reading. It helps me keep a nice fat list of books to look forward to. Makes me feel rich.

So in January I read nine books. Some were great, some were ho-hum, all of them were fiction. I rate books based solely on whether I enjoyed reading them. Sometimes it’s the language that pleases me, and sometimes it’s because the story is a great adventure. I love it when a book has both.

In case you’re like me, always on the hunt for a great book to add to your list, here’s my four favorites for January 2015:

neverwhere   Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman. Can’t wait to read his other books! Great storytelling and lovely language.

every day  Every Day by David Levithan. The reviews are mixed on this one, but I loved it. Highly recommended little mind-twister.

the historian The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. Great story, especially for bibliophiles. I love it when the heroes are intellectual geeks.

the alchecmist The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Beautifully written story of self-discovery. I’m so glad I own this book (thank you Renee!!!) I will re-read this one and I’m sure I’ll find something new each time.

That’s it for January. I’ll have another list of favorites next month.

What are you reading?

    I reread The Alchemist this week and A Discovery of Witches… Thought of you during both 🙂 Glad you enjoyed Coelho! I realized again how much I love his storytelling and yes, I did find something new this time! Wanna head for the pyramids?
