Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

My favorite books of January

A Spool of Blue Thread: A novel - Anne Tyler A Murder of Magpies - Judith Flanders Death at Wentwater Court - Carola Dunn All My Puny Sorrows - Miriam Toews The Bishop's Wife - Mette Ivie Harrison Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation - Judith Mackrell The House of Mirth - Edith Wharton, Nina Bawden

I finished 16 books in January and liked all of them (this is because I just stop reading books I'm not enjoying) but these 7 above were my favorites.
