January was a good month. I kept my book-buying to a minimum (although that could be because I channeled my spending to Funko Pop!s, my new addiction), and I'm ahead of my Goodreads reading challenge because I decided not to enroll in school this term since I'd only have three subjects if I did. Bummer. Work was also good, stressful as always, but thank heavens for my friends. On to the books!
These are the only two books I got this month. Well, I actually have another one coming in the mail (the only downside to online book shopping, really) and I can't wait to get my hands on that book! It's the first book in one of the series I talked about in this post. Anyway, I got Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist because I just had to read it after I watched the movie. If you haven't read or seen it yet, I highly suggest you do both as they're equally lovely. As for Vortex, I found it in the half-priced pile during a random bookstore visit just as I was feeling triumphant because I thought I could leave without buying anything. Sigh. I already read and reviewed it but I'll read it again before I get to the third book, so at least I now have my own copy.
Meanwhile, here are the books I read this month! My favorite read of the month would have to be Steelheart; it was even better than I'd expected it to be. I'm going to wait a few months before I get the sequel, though, just so there wouldn't be too long of a gap between the times I read the second and third books.
