Monthly Recap: January 2012

January was my first full month of book blogging uninterrupted by holidays.  I plan on keeping up the pace of two or three reviews per week, and it will be a mix of crime fiction with other good stories. I tend to get into reading ruts, and right now I’m in a domestic fiction/ chick lit rut.  I need stories with more than a character’s psychological arc right now, so I’m settling inw ith more crime fiction.  This will alsohelp me knock out some of the requirements for the  Criminal Plots II Challenge ,which I have yet to read for yet.  I will still review some new releases, but I’m also going to focus on backlist titles in a quest to (a) clear some books from my shelves and (b) read/ catchup on author’s previous works.  What else?  A few classics, to take care of another challenge I’m doing.  A few literary fiction award winners or finalists, just to see what all the fuss is about.  I find it hard to find literary fiction I love, so from time to time I go on hiatus from reading it if I’ve read a bad or uninteresting run of them.

    If you want a criminal-ish lit fic, I just read Gillespie & I by Jane Harris and adored it — creepy, beautiful, conflicting — great fun.
