Hi guys and welcome to January WRAP-UP post for out 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge! I'm sorry this post is one day late, please don't hate me! Technical problems occurred, but I'm here now and ready to roll! :) Hope you had a great January (or rather the first 21 days of it!) filled with awesome reads! I hope you managed to read some books for the challenge - I know I did! :)
Before we move on to the WRAP-UP, I'd like to mention TWO things:
1) We now have TBR Pile Read-a-Longs to complete our challenge! :) The Read-a-Longs are hosted by Rachelia from Bookish Comforts and yours, truly and every month we're picking one book that is long-overdue! This month we're reading Divergent. Next we have: DELIRIUM and after that Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Each month we have 4 discussion posts and a giveaway to sweeten the deal. Oh, and don't forget to tweet with the #TBRRaL hashtag! :)

2) The amazing Bonnie from Words At Home has created a Goodreads Group for our challenge! You can now keep better track of your TBR Reads and discuss the books with fellow readers! Join it here: CLICK
Now, the wrap-up!
