I read everything I said I was going to read except Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab because I thought it came out in January but it comes out in February, so I read a The Careful Undressing of Love instead.
I can say that January was really busy. I went to ALA Midwinter for four days in Atlanta and I couldn’t enjoy the exhibit hall too much because I was in committee meetings most of the time. My committee, Best Fiction for Young Adults, was tasked with choosing the top ten YA fiction of 2016 and it was VERY DIFFICULT to narrow it down to 10. If you’d like to see what our top 10 of 2016, please click here.
I was able to sneak in 6 books and it was a mixed bag-I could have read 7 if I hadn’t have read Order of the Phoenix-LOL. I gave a couple of fours but they were barely fours so that means that there were no .
Not counting The Order because this is a reread, the best of the month was The Last of August and the worst was The Undressing of Love
Click the titles for full reviews, except Harry Potter.
Onto February where I will try to read 8 books but I can’t make any promises.
