The Sunday Salon – January Wrap-up

Since today is the 31st, I thought I’d do a monthly wrap-up. Looking over the list, I’m surprised by all I read this month. I think I may have been trying to make up for not reading a lot in December. Here’s what I read this month.

Tender is the Night by F. Scott. Fitzgerald

Versailles by Kathryn Davis

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy

The Wild Hunt by Elizabeth Chadwick

The Wife’s Tale by Lori Lansens

The Black Tower by Louis Bayard

Ligeia from The Tales of Edgar Allen Poe by Edgar Allen Poe (short story)

The Fall of the House of Usher from The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe by Edger Allen Poe (short story)

The Midnight Guardian: A Millennial Novel by Sarah Jane Stratford

Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell

Noah’s Compass by Anne Tyler

Conspirata: A Novel of Ancient Rome by Robert Harris

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

That’s 12 books and 2 short stories for January. Not a bad month of reading really. I reviewed 5 books and plan to write a few more reviews in the next week or so.

I had planned to read only library books this month and then read my own books in February. That plan has not worked out like I thought it would. I read 2 of my own books and a few short stories and then I did borrow a few books from the library when I was not really planning to. I’m not very good at returning books to the library and leaving empty handed. All those books are there just waiting to read after all. 🙂 Oh well, in the end, it’s been good reading even if my plan didn’t work out.

Happy Sunday everyone!
