January 2014 in Review

January’s done, and it’s time to review.

This month marked the first in the GIC Book Club and the GIC 100 Books in 2014 Challenge, and I think I’m doing pretty well with both.  GIC’s book club selection this month was I HUNT KILLERS by Barry Lyga, and I thought it was wonderful.

As for the 100 Books challenge (you can find my challenge page here), I was able to boost the start of my year with 14 titles during January.

I ended up reading a number of books in print and digital formats.  In digital, I read Sherwood Smith’s A POSSE OF PRINCESSES, a rewritten fairy tale in a non-Western setting called TOADS AND DIAMONDS by Heather Tomlinson, and MISTRESS OF THE WIND by Michelle Diener.

In print, I read ACROSS THE NIGHTINGALE FLOOR by Lian Hearn, the first book in the Tales of the Otori trilogy which was loaned to me by a friend, THE SHE-HULK DIARIES by Marta Acosta, and THE LAST POLICEMAN by Ben H. Winters.

There were also several volumes of manga this month: TSUBASA RESERVOIR CHRONICLE Vol. 14, 15, 16, 17, and 28 by CLAMP, RINNE Vol. 3 by Takahashi Rumiko, and NISEKOI Vol. 1 by Komi Naoshi.
