January 2015 Wrap-Up


 So, time to recap the last month

So I tried to pick this blog back up from the slump it sunk into in Nov-Dec.  So far much better.   I was a bit shorter on book reviews than I thought otherwise I am think it was a good month here.

I participated in a readathon, shared several discussion posts, some reviews, and giveaways!

On a personal level things were  a bit rough.  My dog had to go to the vet for a nasty ear infection and someone stole our lawnmower.   So funds are a bit tight right now so my personal book buying budget is gone for awhile.  Luckily I have a decent library plus my book room has plenty to keep me busy until things pick up.   

So on to the details for the wrap-up!

  1. It's always great to find another reviewer who reads a lot of manga :) I can't wait to check out Manga Classic's: The Scarlet Letter. Looks like you had a good month!

  2. I really want to read a cold legacy! It looks amazing!

  3. I enjoyed V7 of *Nisekoi*. That's a series I have been loving so far. I need to read V8 soon.
