Month in Review: January '12

Today brings us to the end of Sci-Fi January! I reviewed the 2176 series, which is a science fiction romance five-part series written by four different authors, throughout the month. If you like this sort of book, you should also give Gini Koch a try. For romantic science fiction (more sci-fi than romance), try Linnea Sinclair. Some great YA sci-fi authors are Beth Revis, Anna Sheehan, and Amy Kathleen Ryan. And for a blast from the past, follow along as I review one book from the Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate every Friday!
