Month in Review: January 2021

It’s felt like a busy week of blogging and I’m writing this on Tuesday 😛 Time for some reflection in the new year, thanks to Jenna @ Falling Letters for the template!

Books finished:

  • Super Fake Love Song by David Yoon
  • (Trust) Falling for You by Charish Reid
  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
  • Chlorine Sky by Mahogany L. Browne
  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
  • Tales from the Hinterland by Melissa Albert

Books reviewed:

Discussion posts:

Challenges check-in:

  • 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?
