2015 Real Book Challenge: January Roundup

February 1st, 2015 11:44 am by Kelly Garbato


I’ve been kind of stumped as to how to best compile the monthly roundups for all these challenges I’ve committed to, especially since there’s so much overlap. In order to keep things simple, I think I’ll try writing a post for each separately. Let’s see how it goes, shall we?

I managed five real books in January, which is a pretty solid start toward my overall goal of 50! I especially enjoyed Winterspell and These Walls Around Us. Spoiler alert: both will make an appearance on the diverse challenge lists (yay!).
