Throne of Jade, by Naomi Novik
Black Powder War, by Naomi Novik
Empire of Ivory, by Naomi Novik
Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow
Emma, by Jane Austen
This is the first book I've read start to finish in e-book format, on my iPhone. Very handy for reading on the treadmill at the gym. Or at the doctor's office when I forgot my hardcopy book. Or on the ferry when I finished the paperback I was reading and hadn't thought to bring an extra one. I suspect the iPhone screen is a bit harder on the eyes than the Kindle. But I can't afford the extra cost of the Kindle just for reading - I can only afford one handheld device.
Sweetness in the Belly, by Camilla Gibb
Remember Me?, by Sophie Kinsella
The Book of Negroes, by Lawrence Hill
"No moons as beautiful as yours have crossed the Atlantic," he said. "All these years, when I was missing you, I would wait for the thinnest sliver of the crescent moon to come out at night. On those nights, just once or twice a month if the skies were clear, I felt that you were with me."
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
I didn't expect to include this one in the January log, but I read it so fast (started at 3:30 PM on Saturday and finished around midnight) that I didn't even get a chance to put it up on my Currently Reading widget. Really good. A tear-jerker though.
