January was not as good of reading month as I had initially hoped. While I don't think "Little Heaven" necessarily caused a reading slump, it definitely was the cause of a slow-down. I'm happy to say things have picked back up though. I managed to read 5 books and am more than half-way through a 6th which means I should have an early February finish. I also got approved for some ARCs I really wanted during the month so I'm thrilled about that (and thank heaven many of the don't come out until after June). So.....on with the update! (how did I end up with 7 challenges??? - Oh well).

Of the 5 books I read, I had 1 3-paw read(which was closer to 2/5 than I hate to admit), 1 4-paw read and 3 5-paw read (and those 3 were awesome!) So far, "Certain Dark Things" has been my favorite horror read and "A Perilous Undertaking" my favorite. I really need to pick things up in February though.
So how was January for you guys???
