Challenges Update January

Books I read in January helped me inch towards my goals in these Challenges:

The Great Fire by Shirley Hazzard
Gives me a G for The Rainbow Connection
Raved Reads
TBR Lite

You Were Always Mom's Favorite by Deborah Tannen
Gives me a Y for The Rainbow Connection

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Gives me a B for The Rainbow Connection

I debated whether or not Jane Eyre counts as a YA book but I don't think so. Regardless of Jane's age or the age of the majority of the readers, I think this is an adult book, shelved in the adult section, and I never get any askance glances when reading it by people asking "why are you reading a children's book?"
Obviously, I am doing the best towards my Rainbow Connection goal, but that is just a 6-month Challenge whereas the others are all 12, so that is the first priority (along with Shelf Discovery which is also a 6-month Challenge and is actually the first one coming due this year, but for that one I get to count 3 books I read in December, so I only have 3 left to read.) I also have written and posted reviews of all my books this year, so I am also maintaining for the Read N Review Challenge.
