What I Read in January

One of my goals for 2016 was to get back into the world of books. For some reason, and I am still not sure why, but I did not like the idea of reading at all last year. Which ultimately makes me feel sad, I was such a book worm, so why the change? Knowing that I love to read I challenged myself in 2016 to start reading more. My goal was at least 2 books a month. Another goal that I had was to start listening to audio books while I knit, rather than watch television. I am pleased to report that January was a good start to those goals. Here is my little list.

1. You Are Never Weird On the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day - I have to be honest, I am a huge fan of Felicia Day. I enjoyed watching the Guild when it was on and continue to watch the other shows that she has created on YouTube. I received this book at Christmas, and now that I read it, I am an even bigger fan.

2. The Horse and His Boy (audio book) by C. S. Lewis - this is my second time listening to the audio book, but it is still one of my favourite stories in the Chronicles of Narnia Series. Our family had a little trip to go on so rather than music we put in the audio book. Bug really enjoyed listening to all of the voices.

3. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine - I have read this book a thousand times. When I stated that I wanted to read at least two books a month, I grabbed Ella Enchanted from the shelves thinking that it would be a great way for me to get back into reading since it was a story I loved. If you have seen the movie, I highly recommend picking up the book, it is, in my opinion so much better than the movie; it is funny, it is cute - and I just really like it.

4. LumberJane's Vol. 1 by Grace Ellis - (not pictured above because I cannot find it! You can see the cover here though) this is a graphic novel that I received for Christmas. Such an easy read, but oh so fun. It follows five girls who try to solve a crazy mystery, and the illustrations are great.

I started reading the Dinner by Herman Koch in January, and am still currently enjoying it. I will share my overall thoughts in a few weeks. What have you been reading? I would love to hear your recommendations.  xo
