I posted my Short-a-Thon list here a couple of weeks ago and, since today is the last day of the mini-challenge, I thought it was time to update.
What I read:
Vampire Knight Vol 13 by Matsuri Hino
Castle Mango Vol 1 by Muku Orgura
The Innocent by Avi Arad
We Were There Vol 1 by Yuki Obata
The Record of a Fallen Vampire Vol 2 by Kyo Shirodaira
Yeah, so they were all manga, but still – that’s five books I got out of the pile! Plus, I also read Vampire Knight Vol 14 because it was on the shelf at the library and I couldn’t resist. Also finished The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis. It was a library book that needed to be returned, so I finished it first (it was short).
Now, as far as the January Jam Jar goes, my potential TBR is listed here. Since I have cats and using an actual jam jar would mean I’d either have broken jar or bits of paper with random book titles scattered from here to eternity (or, likely, both), I went with a digital approach. I have my books listed and numbered in a spreadsheet and used Random.org to pick five numbers. My numbers were: 19, 1, 8, 4, and 13. That means my first five books for the year are:
This is a good mix for me and has the bonus of including two of the ARCs I need to read. Wish me luck!
What’s on your list for January?
