  3. My favourites always end up being the ones I don't expect to love!

    Alex @ Like, Words and Stuff

  4. My favorite: CREWEL by Gennifer Albin (*amazing* book)

  5. Mine's a classic that I read for the first time...and absolutely loved.

  6. My pick for January is, perhaps, a little unusual... :)

  7. Best books read in January by me, my class, and my own kids

  8. I liked all the novels I read this month but this was definitely the best.

  9. Here's mine:

  10. I was generally unimpressed with the books I read in January, but I think this one would've stood out no matter what.

  11. Here is my favourite book, narrowed down from the four I picked on 31st January. It is truly an amazing book. I love it.

  12. A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty. It was absolutely amazing!

  13. Wow living on the other side of the world now means I'm always late to the party!

    Here's mine

  14. Here's mine

  15. I just discovered a self published author whose work I love. She started out writing fan fiction and then created her own reality. She's obviously a sci fi fan and she writing it so much fun. I keep turning the page compulsively.
    Here's a link to her book A Gift of Ghosts and a description of the bookf anyone wants to check it out.

    Akira Malone believes in the scientific method, evolution, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. And ghosts.

    All the logic and reason in the world can’t protect her from the truth—she can see and communicate with spirits. But Akira is sure that her ability is just a genetic quirk and the ghosts she encounters simply leftover electromagnetic energy. Dangerous electromagnetic energy.

    Zane Latimer believes in telepathy, precognition, auras, and that playing Halo with your employees is an excellent management technique. He also thinks that maybe, just maybe, Akira Malone can help his family get in touch with their lost loved ones.

    But will Akira ever be able to face her fears and accept her gift? Or will Zane’s relatives be trapped between life and death forever?

    Ican't resist sharing a favorite new author.
    New first lines up at Pen and Ink. Blessings, Susan
