Mostly it rained here in the Los Angeles area and we were overjoyed! It didn't make up for five years of drought but it surely raised the reservoirs and the plant life was so grateful. Three days after Christmas my back went out and I went into hobbling mode, whining mode, and pain reliever mode. Remember when they used to call them painkillers? I guess because that is an alternate fact they are now called pain relievers. In any case, it was sciatica, it is still hanging around, but on this last day of January I am much better.
At least I could read! I read 8 books, two of which were long enough to count as two regular length novels, but long books are perfect for cold rainy days when it gets dark early. Best of all, there was not a bad one in the bunch.
Stats: 8 read. 7 fiction. 5 written by women. 1 memoir. 1 scifi/fantasy. 4 from My Big Fat Reading Project. 2 from the 2017 Tournament of Books list.
Favorite: The Nix.
