THIS WAS THE LONGEST MONTH. EVER.
I'm not really a winter-hater, but January dragged for me. Wasn't Christmas a million years ago? It feels like that. Maybe it's because of the arctic cold.
Anyway, even though this was an endless month, I only read four books in it:
The Subversive Copy Editor
The Art of Wishing
The Subversive Copy Editor is wonderful, particularly if you happen to be a copy editor. But part of me does wish that it were fiction. What would a subversive copy editor do, exactly? Sneak in some extra hair spaces? Change everything to Web 11's non-preferred spellings? Skip the fact-checking? Stet everything?
11/22/63 was a nostalgic trip to the sixties, an edge-of-your-seat time-travel thriller, and (this was my favorite aspect) a heartbreaking love story. I am pretty sure that Stephen King worked in some references to his other works that were totally lost on me, and it at times the book felt a little long, but I loved reading it.

The Art of Wishing--more on this delightful YA debut on the OneFour KidLit blog when it releases in March!
