Book of the Month



Lies we tell ourselves by Robin Talley
Just a fabulous read. Uncomfortable reading all the way though but such an important book both from a diversity point of view and from a historical point of view.

Events attended
None this month sadly

On the blog
It has been a really quite month on here as I've not had a huge amount to say and needed the break
I hosted the Searise blog tour here
I revealed my five star reads of the year here
I talked about the books I am most excited to read in 2015 here

On January's TBR pile
I really don't have a lot in the house on my TBR pile.
I have The Dolls by Kiki Sullivan
I have an adult Second World War series which my friend bought me ages ago (the name of which I can't remember) which I am determined to read before I go back to school.
I am still planning on rereading the Insignia series by SJ Kincaid.
I also want to reread some of my old favourites this year so aiming for at least one this month from this list
I have about 17 books on my kindle which I got as review copies which I am planning to read to clear them then I think I'm giving up the kindle entirely because I'm really not enjoying reading on it and giving up books on it left right and centre.
