January in review: A-Z Challenge

Jackie: Well, January was a near bust for me. I've been sick since just after Christmas but just as I was starting to get some relief, I got another cold (I blame the second one on the kiddie :-p ) What all that whining amounts to is very little reading time. Most days, you'd find me on Twitter complaining to Melissa that a book was just way too heavy to hold, lol.

Anyway, here's what I read for the A-Z challenge this month:

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz
World War Z by Max Brooks

Melissa:  Well, I know the feeling of being down with the colds.  I think we were sending it back and forth through a virus on here. lol.  It's definitely been a tough start to the new year.  I've spent more of my time reading short stories with being up and down.  And I have books I've read that will go towards this Challenge, but I'm holding them until I get the reviews up here in February, trying to spead the love more than one month. lol.

What I've got thus far for A-Z Challenge...

Addicted by S.A. Archer
Cybrosis by P.C. Haring
Foreshadow by S.A. Archer
Percepliquis by Michael J. Sullivan
Something Wikkid This Way Comes by Nicole Peeler

Well, here's to February being a great lettered month too. :)

January in review: YA (Spec-Fic) Reading Challenge

Jackie: I probably have a ton of books on the shelf that fit this category, but as yet are still unread. So, what was my accomplishment for this challenge in January?

Everneath by Brodi Ashton

It's sad but true. I'm hoping to get a few more of these under my belt of the next few months.

Melissa: Eeep!! Okay, I think I'm slacking.  I'm blaming it all on starting the new year sick, and it carrying through.  Yes, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. lol.  Okay, I've been a bad person, no YA reads for me in January!  But I do have a few lined up, if I can get to them, for February.  Two, if not three to come.
