Month in Review: January

Calendar from Wise Old Owl Designs

January is slowly waving goodbye, and after a false start in the first week, there were lots of good things going on here at What Book Is That?, if I may be so bold as to say.

Off the Path is in full swing! January saw two different authors taking part in the feature- Monique Martin, author of Out of Time, and Sasha Soren, author of Random Magic! In case you missed any of the awesomeness from either feature the first time around, here are the posts again for your reading pleasure:

I picked up one more challenge! Hosted by Dark Faerie Tales, the rules of engagement for this one are to read 24 new paranormal romance novels, and 12 paranormal romance novels of your choice in 2011. Given how near and dear PNR is to my heart, I'm totally stoked to be participating in this one!
