Hope you all have a great reading month in January and I wish you all to have another great reading month in February!
This month I read & reviewed 12 books (8 regular and 4 children’s books). The link on the title is where you can find my reviews of each book. The most memorable about this month for me was the interactions I have with authors. It was a great experience. I have never done something like that before. Even though my blog started in July 2014, I was only serious in reading and reviewing books in May 2016. This year, interacting with authors definitely bring my blogging experience to the next level. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to interact with Unplugged’s author Donna Freitas, Princess of Tyrone’s author Katie Hamstead, and Sashi series’ author, Linda Greiner. I admire them all greatly. Donna Freitas has been a Professor at Boston University and written many books for teens and adult both fiction and non-fiction. Katie Hamstead is a host of Son of a Pitch and has written many books. Linda Greiner foster for Shetland Sheepdog Placement Services of New Jersey to find forever homes to rescued/unwanted Shelties (a breed of dog). It’s amazing to read these books and get to know the person who wrote it. 🙂

This month I have trouble getting into Freeks by Amanda Hocking and Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. I plan to give it a try again and hopefully it will be better. I also didn’t read any books I own, which raise questions why I bother to buy books. I will try hard to read a book I own next month.
How did your January reading month go? If you are looking for a book to read and review, Katie Hamstead is looking for reviewers to review her books. I highly recommend Princess of Tyrone!
