February 2011 Reading Wrap-Up

I’m changing up the format of my monthly wrap-ups a bit for 2011. Instead of listing everything I read and linking to what has been reviewed, I will first be listing the books reviewed over the last month, and will include unreviewed books below, so you can see what will be coming up! This month I reviewed 15 books – 14 print and one audio – in addition to highlighting 4 books Daniel and I are reading in Saturday Story Spotlight. I also read 18 books – 16 print, two audios – for a total of about 4,400 pages and 22 hours of audio.

Pick of the Month:

Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen

I chose Sarah’s debut novel, The Opposite of Me, as a pick of the month around this time last year, but Skipping a Beat blows even the accomplishment of her first book out of the water.
