Truth or Dare #17: Looking back on January

Jenna does Books came up with this exciting new meme called Truth or Dare, which in her words:

I came up with this idea to re-energize my blog, to guarantee that, at least once a week, I can come up with a unique topic that can be shared, discussed, and even laughed over among the bookish community – I would love for you to join in on the fun!

If you know how to play Truth or Dare, then you probably know how this feature will work:
Each week I will provide a pair of “Truth” and “Dare” options for bloggers. Each week you may choose to do either the “Truth”, the “Dare” or BOTH! These topics will be listed on my site plenty of weeks in advance to help participants plan their posts. Most options will be quick and easy – but still provide plenty of opportunity for great content! – and others will be a little more… daring.

TRUTH: Usually will require you to answer a question or a prompt that can be completed in text format, such as a “discussion” or “list” post.

DARE: These will require you to “go out of your shell” a bit. You may need to complete a special project, share photos, vlog or complete some equally “daring” task. Let your inner dare devil come alive!

Okay, I loved this game when I was in college – I most often chose truth because I am an open book and would rather share than dare. Also, my friends were kind of evil and thought up some ridiculous dares (truth be told, I was wild too) so I would sometimes cringe at the thought of accepting a dare. Well, I haven’t seen all the challenges yet, but each time I will post what appeals to me more, okay?

This week’s theme is:



Yes, my dears – I combined the Truth and Dare with my usual Looking back post. Hectic week, I tell you – and it is not even ending. I have an entrance test this Sunday, on which my acceptance into a research institute for my doctorate is resting. Funny story – I found out the date of the test this week, which means I basically have not much time for preparation and am going to wing it. Cheers to me! Well,  enough with the rambling and let’s get on with it, eh? These are the books I read this month:

Full-length novels

The Almost Girl  Witch Finder (Witch Finder, #1)

Pantomime (Pantomime, #1)  Shadowplay (Pantomime, #2)

Salt  Contrition (The Perception Trilogy, #3)

The Holders (Holders, #1)  The Seers (Holders, #2)

Weather Witch  Stormbringer (Weather Witch, #2)


Nodame Cantabile, Vol. 21 by Tomoko Ninomiya  Nodame Cantabile, Vol. 22 by Tomoko Ninomiya  Nodame Cantabile, Vol. 23 by Tomoko Ninomiya

That’s it! I am losing my touch! Only 13 books a month. *shakes head*
