The combination of Lazy and Busy :) By the time I got home, I didn't want to do anything else besides watching some shows. I guess I'll cut down on that this month :) Hopefully I'll read pass 10 books this time :D

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Ah, I know that feeling! You got this! I am hoping for February to be a great reading month both quantity and quality wise.

Theresa (teresitac78) | 340 comments I read 14 books and gave 8 of them 5 stars:
Sold by Patricia McCormick Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher Mare's War by Tanita S. Davis Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1) by Sara Raasch The Rules of Survival by Nancy Werlin Unbroken A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies, #2) by Pittacus Lore Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
It was a very good reading month for me. I don't think I will keep up this pace as I get busier.

Sarah | 1737 comments This month's 5 stars were

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #1) by Michael Scott Evermore (The Immortals, #1) by Alyson Noel Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #1) by Ransom Riggs Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3) by J.K. Rowling The Jewel (The Lone City, #1) by Amy Ewing

I only read 8 books this month, and I loved six of them, so I guess quality-wise it was great! Hopefully in February I'll read more :)

Miodrag ★❥ | 897 comments I wasn't so lucky with books in January, read 14 (not counting novellas and comics) and only 4 were really good:

Reborn (Altered, #3) by Jennifer Rush The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks Collide (Blackcreek, #1) by Riley Hart Stay (Blackcreek, #2) by Riley Hart

and as for February... it's already 8th, I was sick this whole week, haven't read anything, still reading Let the Right One In and Me Before You, hopefully I'll finish those soon and get back to more reading. I really hope that I will have more luck with books this month!

Daisey Sometimes I feel like I get stuck in a reading routine, but I'm pretty happy with the variety in my favorite books from January.

City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6) by Cassandra Clare
I love Cassandra Clare's books and finally got around to reading the last one in this series.

Guts & Glory The American Civil War by Ben Thompson
One of my middle school students asked me to read this one, and I found it very entertaining and full of interesting information.

Manga Classics Pride & Prejudice by Stacy King
I've been trying to read a few more graphic novels and thought this retelling was fantastic.
