Monthly Reads - January 2009

Phew, here's my reading list for January :) For some reasons, this week-end, I'm very sleepy... probably because I didn't sleep enough this week.

Anyway, did anyone feel like January was an extremely long month? Maybe it's because I was very busy with work, but January just seems to go on and on and on. Have to say, I'm quite happy that we're now in February LOL.

So here's my list:

1) Broken Wing by Judith James: B-
2) Married in Seattle by Debbie Macomber: B-/C-
3) Seduced at Midnight by Jacquie D'Alessandro: C
4) Girl Most Likely To... by Susan Donovan : B
5) For the Love of Pete by Julia Harper: B+
6) Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier: C
7) Too Far Gone by Marliss Melton: C
8) Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl: B
9) Kiss of a Demon King by Kresley Cole: B+
10) Secrets of the Heart by Jannifer Hoffman: B
11) Deep Waters by Jayne Ann Krentz: B+
12) Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong: A+
13) Homeport by Nora Roberts: A
14) Second Chance Pass by Robyn Carr: B+
15) Too Good To Be True by Kristan Higgins: B+
16) Kill For Me by Karen Rose: A

16 books read this month :) I'm happy with the number and even happier that there were some excellent reads :) I mean, half of the books I read were graded B+ and higher. That's 8 books folks!!

Unfortunately, I had to choose between reading and reviewing... and I guess reading won LOL. Lots of books I wanted to review and didn't have time, but I'll try my best to do them in the next few days... so stay tuned and look forward to February, because lots of good books are on their way :)


  1. Hey, we almost read the same amount :) (You beat me by one.)

    The Broken Wing review was fun to do. We need to pick a new book ASAP.

  2. That's great! I got 12 in this month, which is way above my usual run these days. Can't wait to read your reviews. :)

  3. Excellent list!!! What did you think of Kiss of a Demon King? I have not read it yet but have heard good things so far.

  4. ACK!! You already read Kill for Me?!?! No way! I'm so jealous! I really think I hate you right now. Just at this one moment in time.... breathe, Lori... ok I'm over it now. But srsly. I knew it would be another A book from her. I want it now!

  5. 16 books in a month is a heck of a fantastic job! :D I read about 6, and in a good month, possibly 8, so you DO understand how awed I am by your reading *skills*, don't you? LOL

  6. 16 books! I managed 5. :)

    I see you liked the Higgins book. It's on my (long) list of books to buy.

  7. Seneca - LOL, I agree, we have to pick another book soon :D

    and LOL, is this going to become a competition? Anyway, Ames has us beat :P

    Kmonth - Thanks KMont :) I hope I'll be able to write all the reviews I want!!

    You seem to be busy lately... everything's all right?

    Kris - I'm pretty sure you're going to like Kiss of a Demon King :) You're waiting for library copy?

    Lori - No, don't hate me!! If there was enough time, I would have sent you a copy! LOL, you should check the bookstores near you, perhaps they have received a copy already.

    Jace - I'm telling you, it's not because I have reading skills, it's because I have no life :P

    Taja - LOL, I hope you get and enjoy the Higgins book :)

  8. January went by fast for me. You read a lot. I think I read 5 books if that.

  9. Looks like you had a great reading month!

  10. Isabel - Really? I'm glad for you then... Nothing worst than a month that's dragging on...

    Brie - Yes, I did. Looking forward to February now :)
