Month in Review: January

Look who's back on track! Not only have I gotten back into a regular blogging routine but I've also been reading a lot and writing a lot too! Here's what I got up to in January:

What I Read: 

They Both Die at the End by: Adam Silvera: 5/5 stars
The Dark Prophecy by: Rick Riordan: 4/5 stars
Ms. Marvel: No Normal by: G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona: 3/5 stars
Lines, Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey by: William Wordsworth: 1/5 stars
The Amazing Spiderman Vol. 1 by: Stan Lee: 3/5 stars
Pride and Prejudice by: Jane Austen: 4/5 stars

So as you can see, there were some hits and some misses, and also comic books?? My favourite book was obviously They Both Die at the End. It was so unique and beautiful and sad and ugh so perfect.

What I Blogged: 

I changed up my schedule a bit. I now blog on Monday and Wednesday, and I'm enjoying blogging again. My favourite post was What's in my Writing Portfolio? It was fun for me to finally share my writing with you guys and I felt good doing it.

Favourite Blog Posts of the Month: 

Cee @ Diary of a Reading Addict: Cut Yourself Some Slack 

Amy @ A Magical World of Words: Romanticised Abuse: Bad Boys 

Mishma @ Chasing Faerytales: I Struggle to Find My Place in the Changing Dynamics of the Book Community

Life Stuff: 

I have started semester two of uni and I finally have started by creative writing course! I'm really liking the prof so far but the course is definitely not what I expected. I'm now working on my portfolio to get into my creative writing program next year and I'm really nervous. But hopefully, all will be well!

How was your January?

  4. Thanks for the link Em! XD

    (And comics rock, obviously!)

    Ugh, I don't like Pride and Prejudice - it's soooooo boring! *cue gasps from the bookish community* If you liked it though, then I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

    1. Thanks Cee! And I totally understand your opinion. I hate most classics but for some reason, this one worked for me!
