January TBR

Despite all the hectic holiday season, December was actually a great month of reading for the both of us. Because we all tend to hunker down at home during winter, we’re hoping January will also be a great month of reading.

Indiana’s January TBR

I got so many wonderful books for Christmas this year, deciding which to start first was a struggle. But I’m planning on diving into Educated by Tara Westover, which I’m reading along with my dad. Then I’ll be reading The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi, Finding Baba Yaga by Jane Yolen, Quiet by Susan Cain, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson and Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson.

While my December wasn’t as impressive as Indi’s, I did manage to hit my December reading goal.

Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve — 4.5 out of 5 stars
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran — Review to come
Art Matters by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell — Review to come
Less by Andrew Sean Greer — 4 out of 5 stars (I won’t be reviewing this one since Indi already did)
There but for the by Ali Smith — Review to come
Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson — Review to come

Pete’s January TBR

I’m starting the new year of with a humbler month, though there’s a good chance I read through these books too quickly and have to pick some more. At Indi’s recommendation, I’m reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, a classic I really should have read a long time ago. Indi and I are reading The Haunting of Hill House for one of our book clubs, which should be fun. I’m reading the second book in Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen series, Deadhouse Gates, which I’ve heard a lot of great things about. And finally, I’m reading Fox 8 by George Saunders, a novella that Indi got me for Christmas.
