I figured that if I kept track of my progress monthly, it would motivate me to get more of the great TBR pile read. Here is January's progress:

 

1. A book set during Christmas - His Mistletoe Bride by Vanessa Kelly

2. A book set somewhere you have always wanted to visit - Ms America and the Offing on Oahu by Diana Dempsey (Hawaii)

3. A book of short stories - Brave New Century by Lisa Lickel, Paula Mowery, Teena Stewart, and Kathleen Rouser

4. A book with more than 500 pages - Scoop by Kit Frazier (660 pages)

5. A book set in the future - Concealed in Death (...In Death #38) by JD Robb (NYC 2060)

6. A book with magic - Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George (MG/YA fantasy)
