Month in Review: January 2012

Month in Review features the monthly wrap-up of news on I Heart Reading. This includes book reviews, author interviews, guest blog posts, giveaways and giveaway winners, book tour stops, reading challenges progress and anything else that happened that month. Since I keep a more detailed record of my reading challenge progress on I Heart Reading Challenges, this feature will only offer a brief overview of challenge progress. I feature this meme on the last day of every month.

January was quite the busy month. Not only did I take on the role of book publicist for InkSpell Publishing, I also received the wonderful news that my debut novel, Mirror, Mirror will be published in October 2012. To celebrate this and to keep track of my writing journey, I opened a writing blog called Erratic, where I blog about writing, publishing, book promotion and more. Additionally, I also completely revamped Enchanted Book Promotions and actively began organizing book tours again. On top of that, I also purchased a domain name for my book review blog, which is now proudly hosted on I Heart Reading.

I received 51 books for review in January. You can see a complete list of these books on I Heart Yearly Reads, my reading log where I keep track of books I received, read and reviewed on a monthly basis. You can also visit I Heart Reading’s Facebook Page to see all the covers of these books and their synopsis. Alternatively, you can also see the covers on my Google+ Page.
