January Reading

My goal for 2012 is to read 100 books again. I’ve made a good start and enjoyed some wonderful stories in January.

1) Death Magic, Eileen Wilks
love, love, love this series, author manages to keep adding twists and turns that keep my bum in the chair
2) Take Me Again, Mackenzie McKade
3) Fate’s Edge, Ilona Andrews
I prefer the Kate Daniels series, but this one is growing on me, it was great to see the two boys up, close and personal, overall a fabulous addition to the series
4) Whispers in the Dark, Maya Banks
I LOVE this series and this book is my new favourite, I’ve already gone back and re-read it, fabulous characters, the author added a touch of paranormal, and the love story….*sigh*;)
5) Don’t Ask, Never Tell
this is a collection I picked up at one of my chapter meetings, all three authors are part of the TRW and I really enjoyed them
6) The Name of the Star, Maureen Johnson (YA)
my first MJ book and I really, really enjoyed it, a great twist on the Jack the Ripper tale and a cliffhanger ending that left me gasping for more
7) Museum’s Secret, Henry Chancellor (9-12 fiction)
this is a hilarious, twisty 9-12 story that will make you laugh and keep you thoroughly entertained, one quick warning, you need to like British sense of humour, it doesn’t translate that well to North America
8) Copper Beach, Jayne Ann Krentz
I read her books under any of her three names and Copper Beach is another fabulous read in the Arcane Society series, I’m looking forward to the next book
9) Bitterblue, Kristen Cashore (pub date May 2012, YA)
fabulous, fabulous new book by the author of Graceling, you won’t be disappointed
10) Magic on the line, Devon Monk
great 7th instalment in the Allie Beckstrom series, I’m looking forward to seeing how Devon will tie up all the lose ends

4 and 9 were my highlights for January.

What books have you enjoyed so far this year?
