January 2014 Wrap-Up

Here's a summary of my book-related activity for January. It feels so good to be in a new year with a fresh batch of challenges to be excited about! I celebrated the new year by finally choosing a Random Read again, which I intend to continue. I also took out a library book, which I haven't had the free time for in quite some time. I'm almost caught up on my review copies, and it's got me feeling so free!

On the other hand, I was wrapping up a college course this month, which was utterly exhausting and limited my reading a lot. Also, reading some non-fiction and some stuff that I just wasn't that into, my reading was overall sluggish.

Books I read (linked to the reviews)

The Troop by Nick Cutter (NetGalley)
Testament by Nino Ricci (library book) (DNF)
Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story (Divergent #1.5) by Veronica Roth (TBR pile)
Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee by Dee Brown (TBR pile) (in progress)
Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth (TBR pile)

Books I bought

None! I didn't get any new books this month, aside from a textbook for school, which I've already started reading.

Progress on challenges

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West by Dee Brown was my January Random Read.

I read 2 books for the Mount TBR Reading Challenge.

I completed the following squares for the Book Bingo Challenge: 1 new release, non-fiction, 1 series book

I read 0 books for the Diversity on the Shelf Challenge.

I read 1 banned or challenged books.

I read 2 books written by women.

I read 2 books for the Seriously Series Challenge.

Progress on my TBR pile: I added 0 books to my to read list and removed 3, so my pile decreased by 3 this month!
