  1. I read some amazing books in January, my favorite of which was The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. My review and January Book Wrap-Up are here: katyupperman.com :)

  2. Oh I published my wrap-up yesterday :D how timely!
    I read a lot in January (Thank you commute :D)! Choosing only one was too difficult (out of 15) but I did narrow it down :-): my picks!
    And I know after I'll do the blog hopping this evening, my TBR list will probably expand with great titles!

  11. I read some incredible books in January, and posted about them at www.rebeccabehrens.com. I don't know if I can pick one--if I *had* to pick one YA, it would probably be The Fault in Our Stars.

    1. Daisy, for some reason I couldn't comment on your site, but I wanted to say I loved your review of TFiOS! That excerpt---hilarious. And I agree, it's such an amazing book that John Green should write the review ;)
