Monthly wrap-up – January 2019

January lasted for about twelve years and friends, let me tell you, I’m thrilled that it’s finally over and that I can write this wrap-up!

in real life

January wasn’t a good, or bad month overall, it was just… well, January, as always this endless month between winter and spring where time seems to move painfully slowly and everything seems to be annoying, too. Not much has happened in the past month, between handling the cold, the snow, the endless working days and weekends going by in a blur, it’s been, well…

It’s been long. All that I hope is that February will be quicker and warmer and that spring will be here soon.

on books

After my holidays in late December and all the celebrations, with getting back to work and long commute and everything, I have been flying through books lately and… it’s been good.

πŸ“– Books I read

If I appreciated the world this was set in, somehow this book felt a little too slow for me to completely love it. Full review here!

This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and… well, it COMPLETELY delivered, it’s a new favorite already, I loved it SO much. Full review coming next week!

Well that was what I’d call an ADORABLE graphic novel, I really really enjoyed it and please read itttt. Full review here!

I have been wanting to read this one for AGES and I’m so glad I did, because I found it incredibly well-written and imaginative and I had EMOTIONS. Full review coming soon!

 

I am a huge fan of Laura Silverman’s debut, Girl Out of Water and her sophomore novel sounded perfect and it was, no pun intended, PERFECT. Really. I cried okay. Put this on your TBRs! Full review soon!

Buddy-read this with the amazing Taasia! I wanted to get to Emma Mills’ books and I’m so glad I did, this was such a fun, sweet read and I loved this group of friends. Full review soon!

I was kind of nervous to read this, because it has been quite a hyped book, but damn I was really surprised. I loved the characters, loved the world, the twists, the everything. DEFINITELY put this one on your radar. Full review soon!

 

I have decided to include a new mini-category for the time being with my reading progress overall. I am not a reading challenge kind of person, but I have taken on two fairly easy and nice challenges this month and I’m going to try and track them a little bit here.

  • Goodreads Challenge: 7/60 books : on track!
  • Year of The Asian Reading Challenge: 1/10 books: on track! (The Reader)

in-real-life

I was still supposed to write a lot more than I did this month. I thought I would catch up with everything, new year and new resolutions and everything and finally finish my current draft of my WIP, but… well, life happened and I just didn’t take the time to do so. I’m so thankful for my sister, because she’s the one kicking my ass for me to get back to it and, miracle of miracles, it actually worked a little bit by the end of the month. I’m glad it did because I have less than 1/3rd of the book to get through.

I am just so. slow.

Oookay so… I’m putting this new category right here to track my writing progress, too. I need to finish editing my WIP this year, I really do. I want to do more, so this is my way of guilt-tripping me into GETTING BACK TO WRITING.

on the blog

January has been kind of a whirlwind on the blog. I had new projects for January: I kicked them off early in the month with my new author features and I am thrilled and honored and so, so very happy to see that people seem to have enjoyed it so far.

I also happened to have the best month ever, statistically on the blog and I’ve been so thankful for it all, your warm comments and support and visits. Thank you for being here and visiting my small corner of the internet, I feel like sobbing every now and then because of it. Thank you!!

Anyway here’s what happened this month on the blog, in case you missed it.

  1. I think you graced that post of mine! ❀ Yes, January is just so slow and ugh, not everything is under our control and that's super annoying. Just for Clicks has caught my attention because of you so thank you. And The Fever King because I loved the cover of that one and now I'm glad to know the characters are good too! I'm a super slow writer too so I can totally relate. Here's to hoping February would be better for us in terms of that πŸ˜€

    It was a great reading month and I’m hoping it stays that way, but I never know, maybe a reading slump is right around the corner, lurking (I hope not!) so we’ll see!

  4. Honestly, I thought my January flew by so fast. I’m sorry it was the other way around for you. It’s over now. I’m sure better days are coming. 🀞 My favorite reads for this month are Looking for Alaska, Sadie, The Wicked King, Sky in the Deep, and The Kiss Thief. 🀩 I’m 6 books ahead from my Goodreads challenge, so I think I’m doing pretty good so far. I’m looking for a book by an Asian author and an LGBTQA book to read for February. A couple of books on your read list caught my attention, so I’m going to look them up. πŸ€“ Also, thank you for sharing posts from those other bloggers. I’m going to be stalking them after this. 😍

  14. January definitely felt endless to me. It seems like I’ve done so much and the month just wouldn’t end? In one hand, I’m grateful that it took this long, because this means I had more time to think before life restarts & I’m on auto-pilot all over again; on the other, I’m just so done with the anticipation of university and all, and I just want things to happen already. Like ripping off a bandaid.
    It seems like you read a lot of amazing new releases in January, which is so great! I hope blogging allows me to stay more in time with them, but knowing me I’m sure I’ll continue to read only backlist books and then blog about them as if they’re new, hahah.
    Hope you have an amazing February! And hopefully it will be a better writing month too! 😊

  15. January seems to be the month where everyone is rejuvenated and motivated to kick the year off with a bang. I found it had the opposite effect since you have the post-holiday blues to deal with and the thought of getting back into a routine was just so deflating. It sounds like you’ve had an incredibly productive month and I love all these new features that you’re introducing to the blog. Good luck with the writing. Keep at it, even if it’s just random notes on possible plot points cause every little thing helps.

LOL I really want to read You Asked for Perfect and The Fever King, so I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed both of those. I need to get back into my WIP too. It’s on my goals list for the year – to finish writing it and see how far I can get with it in terms of preparing to query. I didn’t write any in January, so February is the month!

  28. I AM SO WITH YOU on January seeming like it lasted forever??!? I was ill for most of January so I’m definitely glad to see it go!

    I haven’t heard of Just for Clicks and I’m on the search for more fluffy contemporary, so i’ll look out for your review!

    So glad you had an amazing blogging and stats month, congrats! πŸ˜ƒ You deserve it!

  30. January did indeed last for like 12 years. I don’t know how. I have no sense of time. First of all, thank you so much for sharing my post! I’m still so glad you found it helpful. πŸ’› Second of all, congrats on all your writing progress! You have more words at the end of January than you started with, so that’s definitely a win. I LOVE Emma Mills, and I totally forgot that she had a book coming out this year. I’m glad you enjoyed it β€”Β I can’t wait to check it out.

  32. Awww thanks for sharing my post, Marie! You’re the sweetest!! I totally agree with January feeling like it lasted forever! But, at the same time I can’t believe that’s over already. lol. And it has been so cold and rainy where I live this month! (It doesn’t help that my work forbids me from wearing jackets on the clock. My short sleeve shirt does not keep me warm in the slightest!). Haha!

    Wishing you the best of Februaries!! πŸ€—

  33. January seemed to go by so slowly but when it was over I was like, wait, the year just started! It seems like overall you had a pretty successful month! I hope you can get back to working on your WIP more often, but >3000 is still an accomplishment! As long as you’re making progress that’s all that matters! ❀
