My January "Reads"

I listened to fourteen books this month, including 6 adult fiction/nonfiction and 8 YA/MG.

Here are the YA/MG:

Dead BeautifulMatchedPrismOnly the Good Spy YoungThe Misfits
Across the UniverseThe Beasts of Clawstone CastlePretty Monsters: Stories

My favorite nonfiction this month:

The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century It seemed a little American-centric, but this was an interesting book on past and future geo-politics. The author is also convinced that war is inevitable for humans, forever. I disagree, hoping we'll manage to be less predictable than that...someday, anyway.

A lot of fodder for fiction here, especially for sci-fi and dystopian writers.

What about you? Any favorite reads this month?


  1. THE NEXT 100 YEARS sounds really cool--thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  2. Wow, you've listened to a lot of great books! I just finished Pretty Little Liars - I was curious after it became a tv show. And it was powerful the way secrets pulled me through the story.
