It was so close to being four books, but I technically finished the fourth on February 1 so it doesn’t count.  I would have been pleased with that number since it took me a long time to read the first book.  Books read in January are:

1. A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge (review)
2. Late Eclipses (Toby Daye #4) by Seanan McGuire (review forthcoming closer to March)
3. Dust (Jacob’s Ladder #1) by Elizabeth Bear (review in progress)

Favorite book of the month: A Fire Upon the Deep was the best, but my personal favorite was Late Eclipses.  It’s the Toby book I’ve been waiting for – a lot of the problems I’d had with some of the previous books were ironed out and SO MUCH HAPPENED!  I enjoyed it immensely and can’t wait for the next one!

The discussion of Dust for the Women of Science Fiction Book Club is now going on!  I’ve been reading it, but I haven’t made many comments.  I came back from work the day the post was up and there were so many comments by that time already that I didn’t know where to start…  It’s an interesting book, though, and there is certainly a lot to talk about!

What did you read during January and how did you like the books you read?
