I don’t know about you, but I thought this year’s January was the fastest in the history of Januarys. I put Januarys in the same box as Mondays (although I am doing better at appreciating Mondays) so it was a delightful surprise to not see the days drag and make it more painful than the beginning of a new year has to be!
What I read in January
I hate that I can’t count the manuscripts I read for work, haha! This being said, most books brought me immense joy and I feel I’ve been pretty much spoiled by the stories and their authors.
What I reviewed in January
I’ve noticed that I don’t read and review quick enough, so I’ve split my reads and reviews part for the wrap-up!
You can totally see why I say January was a good reading month from the number of 5-star reviews… Either I’m going soft or… Who am I kidding? I’m not soft!
I can’t recommend Jem Tugwell’s novel enough. It is BRILLIANT!
A real punch. An outstanding standalone with an unforgettable main character! Must-read!
Original, addictive, crazy puzzle-like with the best format I’ve read!
Makes you doubt everyone and yourself! Only the ending felt off, but 90% of the book was really gripping!
What else happened around here?
I’ve shaken up the wrap-up process a bit as listing the books I’ve bought or received in a month was becoming stressful. I will probably add stuff along the way, so make sure you check out the wrap-ups!
I’ve made sure to share recommendations on Instagram all month, and I need to find a way to make my blog more enjoyable, as I can feel I am leaning more and more towards Instagram content! Whoops! I have been thinking a lot about the whole sharing we do on Twitter. Do we really read each other’s posts? I hope the answer is yes for you too.
I missed this week’s positivity wave as I do not currently have access to a real Internet connection (I’m using my phone for this post!) but it will be back next week.
I need to give serious thoughts to the future of this blog, as each post takes time to write, prepare, and schedule, and time is a resource that is quite limited at the moment!
On a happier note, I gave the blog a little makeover (again) because I wanted Yûki and Iris to appear!
I’ll stop now as I don’t want to use too much of my phone’s Data!
Stay safe, be kind, and enjoy the little moments!
