    I didn’t finish any. 😦 But I am reading The Tiger’s wife. And will be reading Half of a Yellow Sun in February. I am making this an Orange Year instead of just dedicating a month. 😉

    I read three – The History of Love, The Tiger’s Wife, and A Spell of Winter
    It’s hard to compare these books because they are so different, but I think I liked The Tiger’s Wife the best

    You don’t have to enter me in the giveaway – I have read Wolf Hall. Thanks for hosting another terrific Orange January 🙂

    I read three: Room by Emily Donohue, the London Train by Tessa Hadley and The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna. Without hesitation my favourite was The Memory of Love! It was slow going at first but I was glad I persevered because after awhile I could not put it down. It is so well written. I will be definitely be reading other books by this author.

    As usual, I’ve loved Orange January! I read *Fall on Your Knees*, my favorite by far, *Molly Fox’s Birthday*, and *The Tiger’s Wife*. They were all well worth my time, and I’ll be reading Oranges all year, but looking forward to the concentrated stuff again in July! (I also won a book, so that’s Orange butter cream icing on my January cake!)
    Please don’t enter me for *Wolf Hall*, but it’s a wonderful way for you to end a wonderful month for some lucky reader. Jill, thank you for your labor of love!

    I’ve read three this year. My favorite is absolutely Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. It was amazing. The other two were 4.5 star reads, so it has been an excellent Orange January!

    I read two Oranges this January. The Siege by Helen Dunmore was unforgettable! I loved her story so much that I then read a non – orange sequel to the book, The Betrayal, which I also loved

    The other Orange that I read was The Hero’s Walk by Anita Rau Badami. I very much enjoyed by trip to India.. I’ve read other books by Anita Rau Badami and I very much enjoy her books.

    Thanks for hosting Orange January! I think the Oranges are some of the best books out there!

    I read two (The idea of Perfection and Short History of Tractors in Ukranian) and listened to two (Personal History of Rachel Dupree and Notes on a Scandal) on audiobook, definitely liked Notes on a Scandal best, I love it when you get a character who is so horribly enthralling. Would love to have a go at reading Wolf Hall, I listened to it on audiobook last year and loved it, it was a real education. I think it would definitely be one of those that you could read over again and learn new things from. Have enjoyed the month, reading the reviews and searching the long lists for a few new ideas. Will be back for July. Thanks

    I still have 50 pages from Small Island, besides having read “Rape” by Oates. I wish I had read more, but for the past two weeks I have had so many events adding to my schedule that I found myself not reading as much as I wanted. I am sure I will finish Small Island this weekend, so for me that would count as two 🙂
    Thank you for the giveaway, I hope I win, since the reviews reminded me of some of Tracy Chevalier’s books, which I love!

    I read two nominees — Accordion Crimes by Annie Proulx and Beyond Black, by Hilary Mantel. I tried to read one more, Swamplandia!, which (sorry, Jill) in my opinion should not have been a candidate, and gave up on it. AND, I read Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson, which SHOULD have been nominated but was not.

    I read Wolf Hall with great pleasure when it first came out, so don’t put my name in the drawing for this one.

    I just finished the one, “The Voluptuous Delights of Peanut Butter and Jam” and it was marvellous! Hoping for an Orange-tinged year to make up for this slow start, I seem to find it difficult to commit to many Orange reads in January!

    (I don’t need a copy of “Wolf Hall”, I’ve already read it and loved it.)

    This was my first journey into an “Orange” month & I had a blast! I have read: Amy & Isabelle, Bel Canto, Prep, The Weight of Water, The Book of Fires and I’m currently reading The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives and listening to The Idea of Perfection on audiobook!

    The hardest part of Orange January is trying to figure out what to read next!! :). Oh, and adding lots more books to my wish list!

    Ready for Orange July soon….

    Oops, I forgot to mention my favorites… Loved The Book of Fires & Bel Canto best, but have enjoyed all of them in their own way.

    I managed two, and Alias Grace was my favorite. In fact, it’s my favorite of the year so far! I’m excited for Orange July to come around, although I’m not going to wait that long to read another Orange book.

    I read and enjoyed The History of Love though I have lots of issues with the book. Please don’t enter me in the drawing. Thanks for host Orange January. See you in July :).
