January Rosepoint Reviews Recap—Welcome Valentines Month February

Rosepoint Reviews-January Recap

Welcome February! Valentines, chocolates, hearts, and roses month. Lovely way to brighten the winter blast and a perfect time to snuggle in, stoke the fire, heat some hot chocolate (see how I keep coming back to chocolate?), and grab a good book!

The CE and I pounded out eighteen reviews—so much for slacking back on the schedule this year! So glad to have his help now, as the schedule has gotten quite hectic. I wanted to write another article, but have only had time to write reviews. “Soon come,” as his Rastamon buddy character would say in the Road to Key West series by Michael Reisig. If you missed my full review of any of the January books, the links are listed under the pictures, and I sincerely hope you’ve read several of these–but let me know!

My book reviews for January included a number of amazing book we gave five stars:

Churchill's Secret Messenger by Alan HladThe Little Grave by Carolyn Arnold  No Going Back by T R Ragan  A Gown of Spanish Lace by Janette OkeThe Darkest Thread by Jen Blood  Unnatural by Deven Greene  Silent Voices by Patricia Gibney  Hunting the Hangman by Howard Linskey  Gods, Guns, and Money by Michael Reisig  The Girl in the Missing Poster by Barbara Copperthwaite  Shucked Apart by Barbara Ross  Audiobooks by bestselling authors   Tell No One by Harlan Coben   Mainely Fear by Matt Cost  Snow on the Range by Sofia Aves  Dead Cat, Run by Annabelle Lewis  Bitter Rain by Shannon Baker  Jane Darrowfield, Professional Busybody

Most of the Jan reviews were from NetGalley, four were audiobooks, and one was a direct author request. We binge-watched a couple more Netflix, this last one with Kiefer Sutherland, Designated Survivor. Deadly politics.

Reading Challenges

Certainly getting a great start on the NetGalley Challenge with eleven  and with the CE contributions to those titles I might not normally read, including non-fiction.

Twenty-two books so far toward my ultimate Goodreads goal of 175 this year. I began keeping a Goodreads (and achieved the goal) in 2013, missing only 2015—a tough year for us living in the RV in Yuma and monitoring our mothers in California. I don’t know, however, how to get those completed badges.

Audiobooks – Five! I’ll be posting regularly on Thursday.

Historical Fiction – Two in January—and those were both read by the CE.

You can check out my challenges progress by clicking on my Reading Challenges page.

Hoping to see the Covid pandemic wind down—at least a little where you are. We are beginning to be “cautiously optimistic.” In the meantime, I’m armed with double and triple layer masks with removable filters—it’s like science fiction gone non-fiction.

As always, welcome to my new followers—and those who continue to support the blog through your participation, likes, and comments. You help me grow and keep me going. Thank you!
