January and February Updates

5 books reviewed in January
5 books reviewed in February
124 books reviewed in total

877 books to go

First of all, we’d just like to thank our lovely reviewers for helping get 2013 off to a great start with reviews. It’s to be expected that things would be a bit slow after the Christmas and New Year holidays, but the dedication of our reviewers has been fantastic. Our goal is to publish two reviews each week, and we’ve almost achieved this; it wouldn’t be possible without the team of reviewers, so THANK YOU!!

The first review of the year came from Ms Oh Waily, who reviewed The Wonderful O; one of the children’s books featuring on the list. This was followed by a real mixture of modern and classic reviews: Love Medicine, Sons and Lovers, The Mayor of Casterbridge, with Jane Eyre rounding out the month nicely.

February was heavy on books from the 1900s (The Catcher in the Rye, A Severed Head, Timbuktu, The Plague and Perfume), with Kafka on the Shore (2000s) thrown in for good measure. Plus Kara’s review of War and Peace should be enough to convince those of you who have put off reading this due to its sheer size – it really is worth the effort!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but personally, my list of ‘Must Read’ books is growing with every review!

    I haven’t been alerting you to my reviews, but I’ve read 11 1001 books since the start of the year, so definitely go see if you want any.
