Overall Reflection:Wow! What an amazing start to the year! 8 books down (my monthly goal is 4) and a brand new look (thanks to the lovely Parajunkee)! Not to mention hosting my first ever giveaway! A big thank you to all who participated and congratulations to the winners! :) To top it off, I met some of my reading goals for 2010 previously mentioned here. Said goals include finishing Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series, Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, and Firespell by Chloe Neill! Overall this has been an amazing month. I couldn't have asked for a better way to kickoff my new "reading" year! :D
