Wow…This month just flew by!
I am off to a decent start this year. This month I read five books, finished one audio book, and have started all three of my reading challenges. Next month is my first blogiversary and I am very excited to celebrate with you. Look for at least one giveaway!

In case you missed it…
Read All About It – featuring books by Camille DiMaio, Stephen King, Fredrik Backman, and Fiona Davis

What I Read

My favorite book this month…

Blindsighted (Grant County, #1) by Karin Slaughter – I’m looking forward to making my way through this series! (full review)
My Rating: 4/5

Look For Me (Detective D.D. Warren, #9) by Lisa Gardner – Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors. This is an excellent addition to the D.D. Warren series, she never disappoints. (full review)
My Rating: 4/5

The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor – This is a coming of age story of friendship, with many important life lessons that can reach beyond the written pages of a book. (full review)

  1. Great list! I also loved The Great Alone…I haven’t done my wrap-up yet, so I don’t know which one will be my favorite. TGA will definitely be a contender.

    I want to read the new Karen White book…and Force of Nature.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. I’m am especially excited for that one. My mom and I were working on our family tree a couple of years ago and discovered that we are related to a couple of the passengers on the Mayflower. So I think this will be a fun read!
