Book Review

January Rewind


This month was crazy! The first two days of it was spent travelling so that was already a little exhausting.

I went to my first event as a book blogger, and uh there was free booze, food, and books, so, I mean….It was perfection.

I decided to revamp my Patreon and start a Ko-Fi

I’m now in three Readathons! Two are year long.

I hosted a bookstagram challenge for the first time and cohosted that and a readalong that ends tomorrow!

I’ve decided to start Indie Spotlight on my blog and revive Comparing Notes. I donated to the crowd-funder for Cymera Fest, and have decided I’m attending YALC as well. And I read…a lot. I actually did a really good job on my NetGalley backlist, and then, I requested more books. So…that’s back at square one lol.

Now, what’s on for next month?

I’ll have a few more videos going up, all for street team purposes only. I’d flounder and die on Booktube if I ever had a go at it lol.

I’ll be giving an overview and haul pictures from my first Penguin Huddle event in Edinburgh. Also, like I said, I have updated my Patreon and added a Ko-fi, and plan on getting those out more too, shouting about them on social media lol.

February starts my Indie Spotlight Series, I will bring back Comparing Notes, and I’ll have some unboxings.

Who knows what the hell else I’ll have going on, but, let’s see what happens!

*sobs softly because now I really want to be able to go to YALC* I just want to meet people like you and Michelle *wails* Ahem but look at you go with all that reading, I read 8 books this month and I am very happy with that…even though its ridiculously small compared to many people’s read lists. Hope you have a wonderful Feb lovely and thank you for sharing my post! x
