January Wrapped Up!

A little late, but here's how I got on in January!


I read a total of 6 books, which I'm kind of pleased with.  These were read almost pretty much in the first 3 weeks of January, after which I fell into a kind of slump and didn't read anything at all, so I could definitely do better!

As for the challenges I set myself, I did pretty well this month!  I read a classic, a male author, a female author, a non-UK/USA author, a prize winner (Elizabeth is Missing was voted the Costa First Novel winner just after I read it, so I'm cheating a little but I'm saying it counts :)) and a non-fiction book.  I didn't read anything on my kindle ...

Duds of the month, with 3 stars each, were The Boy Next Door by Irene Sabatini and After Dark by Haruki Murakami.  They were both just ok, nothing earth shattering.

Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey (review here), Gone by Rebecca Muddiman (review here) and Mind Over Fatter by Anna Richardson each got 4 stars.

My top read of the month was One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey.  I loved this heartbreaker so much! A definite 5 star read.

I'm a bit behind with reviews, surprise surprise!

What was your top read for January?
