Another month done so it’s time for another month in review! And happy new year to all!
I’m planning a separate post for my year in review (because wow I did a lot of blogging stuff this year! I’m proud of myself and I’m gonna post about it!), but here’s what I got up to this past month. Template based on Jenna’s series @ Falling Letters.

Upcoming in January:

- More Beautiful Bookstore features
- Reflecting back on 2020 and setting some new reading goals!
This month I also finally signed up for StoryGraph (which officially launches today!), and I’m still figuring it out as I go but I love the content warnings and in-depth tags to provide a clearer sense on what each book entails. You can find me on there @spinesinaline and feel free to offer suggestions on using the site!
How was your final month of the year? Any bookish plans for 2021?
