January Recap

I’ve been very fortunate this month because I’ve received lots of amazing books.
I have quite a few favourites, actually! I really can’t choose only one! The first book I read this year was The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater which was very hard to beat. But I love Maggie’s books so I didn’t expect any other reaction.
Two other books that I loved were Adorkable by Sarra Manning and Smuggler’s Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen. 
I’ve also achieved a lot this month. I started the month on between 100-110 followers and now have 140+. I really can’t believe this because I’m nearly halfway to my end of year goal. I’ve also really rekindled my passion for blogging (I’m going to be writing another post on this soon).
Another thing that I’m very proud of this month is the fact that I was featured in the Daily Mail at the start of the month. I wrote a letter to them in reply to their article on ‘sick lit’ and it was then printed as the lead letter. It’s something that I’ll always remember and I still can’t believe it! 
I’ll be posting about my goals for February and I’m also hoping to make these posts a monthly occurence.
Which books did you enjoy this month?

    Ahh The Raven Boys… one of my favourite books of 2012! I loved it to pieces. I’m still really impressed to hear that you were featured in The Daily Mail. That must have been quite something. 🙂 And congratulations on the new followers! I’m sure you’ll be at 200 in no time.
