Books Read in January 2010

This is a list of the books that I read in January, broken up into Picture Books, Middle Grade Books, Young Adult Books, and Adult Fiction. This month was definitely dominated by middle grade fiction, mostly because I read the Cybils shortlist titles for MG Fantasy and Science Fiction. I'll likely read more YA in February. And I still have a goal of catching up on picture books one of these weeks...
