What was the best book you read in January?
Plus, the Anderberg family's favorites
Jeremy: Walden and The Color Purple weren’t exactly entertaining, but they were definitely the best books I read in January. The most unexecptedly fun was Stephen King’s short Cycle of the Werewolf, and my re-read of Game of Thrones kicked off a long journey with George R. R. Martin here in 2024 (even if his ever finishing the Song of Fire and Ice series looks increasingly unlikely).
Jane: Go as a River, Shelley Read’s debut historical novel, is blowing up here in Colorado, which makes sense given its local mountain setting. Jane easily picked this big-hearted coming-of-age story as her favorite read of the month.
Graham (8.5 years old): We continued the Arc of the Scythe trilogy by finishing all 500+ pages of Thunderhead (book two in the series). It’s definitely geared towards teens, but we both really enjoyed this book.
Willa (almost 6 years old): Narnia continues to be a hot series in our household and Willa enjoyed this abridged, illustrated version quite a bit last month.
Bo (3 years old): The little tyke’s “animal book,” as he calls it, remains his favorite. He requests it every single night at bedtime and it’s adorable.
Alright — your turn! What was your favorite January read?
