I am not a fan of January. It drags on forever and everyone is in an awful mood. But I wasn’t expecting this one to pass so quickly! Okay, some days felt never-ending, but overall, this first month was busy enough for me not to check the calendar every 5 minutes.
Three years. This baby is three years old. Does that make me an old blogger?? A seasoned one? A mummy? :p
I now know how to handle water leaks and threaten landlords to get things fixed. Yay for stern voices and not-so-happy voicemails. It’s sad to have to come to this for things to happen, though.
Muscles! My body is growing stronger thanks to my regular Ashtanga practice and I no longer whine for two days after a class!
I need bookcases. But that’s not new.
I am slowly but surely figuring out the boundaries of social media…
I need to stay away from NG again. Like, really. Or start reading day and night.
Oh, and monthly TBR mostly work (if I stop adding books to the pile)
Books I read this month
New record! 17 books read! Technically, 17 and a half as I started my current read when January was still up…
Books I reviewed
See what I mean? I need more hours in a day!
Book of the Month Award
The more you read, the harder it is to choose… I was lucky to read many amazing novels this month. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO CHOOSE???
Okay, after a piece of cake, a few song sang out of tune, and some thinking… It’s a tie!
I fell in love with Jane Fallon’s Tell Me A Secret, and I was blown away by Dead Memories, the new installment in the Kim Stone series. I can’t choose between those two! And I’m glad Dirty Little Secrets doesn’t count this month as it was read in December, or it would have HAD to be awarded too!
