Reading Challenge Update: January 2016

Here's what happened in my reading challenges for January. Links are (mostly) to Goodreads, which is also where I've written (most of) my reviews.

Books I read for the first time in January 2016

I Love Libraries Challenge (6/24 books so far)

The Transport Debate, Jon Shaw & Iain Docherty
The Fault in our Stars, John Green
Lessons from Madame Chic, Jennifer Scott
168 Hours, Laura Vanderkam
Raising Steam, Terry Pratchett
Princess Academy, Shannon Hale

Read it Again, Sam (1/4 books so far)

Let it Snow, Maureen Johnson, John Green, & Lauren Myracle

This is normally a Christmas re-read, but it was checked out over Christmas & took a while to get to me.

Woman Challenge (3/20 books so far)

Lessons from Madame Chic, Jennifer Scott
168 Hours, Laura Vanderkam
Princess Academy, Shannon Hale

Mount TBR Challenge (0/12 books so far)

Nothing on this one in January, because I'm trying to make a dent in Mount These Are Due at the Library Soon before I get any more fines than I've already accrued.

Goodreads Challenge (6/100 books so far)

See above--my library checkouts are what I read this month (I don't count re-reads in this total). I'm two books behind already, Goodreads kindly tells me. Sheesh.

Did you read anything good in January? What should I add to my list?

I read Let it Snow and Snow Globe. Snow Globe was set in the late 1920s in London and a country estate. It was just a'ight for me. Now I'm reading Brooklyn and having a hard time warming up to this author's style. I've finished 2/12 of my Goodreads challenge.

The more books I add to my TBR list, the less patience I have for warming up to a book. If it takes more than a couple chapters, it's dangerously close to being thrown back.
