I'm not sure what happened in January but I managed to read TWENTY books this month. That's a quarter of the goal I set for myself this year. Some were short but then others were longer. Arcana is actually a book by my wonderful critique partner, Jessica Leake. It's incredible and out in November of this year. Beauty Queens, Mind Games, 3:59, Where Things Come Back and Perfect Ruin were audio books. 3:59 was exceptionally creepy. I loved Where Things Come Back. I actually own a signed copy but for some reason was never in the mood to read it. I'm glad I finally did. I'd heard so much about Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl and couldn't wait to read it but wanted to read her earlier books first. All are creepy in their own way but Gone Girl totally took me by surprise. Winger was such a great read but completely shattered my heart. The last four books I read--This Song Will Save Your Life, The Art of Falling, The Sound of Us and Unbreak My Heart were great contemporary reads.
