Last month's reads included:
I always find what reviews are best received across different mediums to be fascinating, as it points to different audience segments being engaged. A good mix this month with some real variety.

With the switch from Wordpress back to Blogger, January was another fantastic month for traffic - topping an already amazing December for my highest number of page views in almost 2.5 years!

Look Ahead: February

I always hesitate to look too far ahead, since my reading is dictated as much by my whims and desires of the moment as by release dates. This past month I read 4 of the 6 books that I had planned to cover, but I'm currently reading the other 2, so I'm okay with that.

In the interest of trying to be better at holding myself accountable, here are the reviews I'm hopeful you'll see this month:
  • Keeper at the Gates by Allison Church (I read this the other night, so watch for a review this week)
  • Guised Passage by James L. Boanerges (I finished this over the weekend, so watch for a review soon)
  • Fairhaven Rising by L.E. Modesitt Jr. (I started this last night with an eye towards a release date review)
  • Oh, That Shotgun Sky by Sarah Chorn (Next on my TBR pile with a release date review in sight)
  • The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey (Last of my February releases to be read)
  • The Unbroken by C.L. Clark (This is a March release I began reading last week)
  • The Bone Maker by Sarah Beth Durst (Another March release I'm hoping to get to soon)

What did your December reads look like? What's on your shelf for February?


  1. I just started The Echo Wife and so far I'm intrigued 😁

  2. I'm going to be picking up the Echo Wife this month and also hopefully Unbroken - although you know what they say about the best laid plans.
