- Looked back on my year in blogging and the new features I created!
- 0/13 books read from my 2021 Chosen TBR
- 0/4 read from my 2020 Chosen TBR
- 0/5+ read from books I own
- 1/10+ read from my TBR
- 205/150 books on my Goodreads TBR
In the book community:
- Shruti @ This is Lit put together a book rec guide, pairing your zodiac sign with a romance novel trope (and rec based on that trope!)
- Sally @ Why Homer talks about Andromache in The Iliad and critiques raised against “Greek myths”, which felt especially relevant after my recent read
- Not a book blog but the latest volume of Chinatown Stories was just released (a collection of interviews and artwork created by residents of and those with a connection to Chinatown in Vancouver), along with a free digital app!
Upcoming in February:
- perhaps some Beautiful Bookstores from Winnipeg
- more reviews (including an exciting, upcoming release!)
- and maybe some Music Mondays!
I read and reviewed a lot more than I thought (though of course my Goodreads TBR isn’t reflecting that 😛 ). No progress on challenges but I’ve had a lot of ARCs to catch up on so haven’t managed to focus on those yet.
What was your favourite read in January?
Any plans for this month, bookish or otherwise?
