If there’s any mistakes or anything, please let me know. What books did you get last month? Anything good? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Fifty book reviews behind, egads, how did it get this bad?! I blame December, I slacked off quite a bit, and I suffered three family deaths back to back, so it’s reasonably understandable why I suddenly really didn’t feel like reading much of anything. I hope to get all these posted within the months of Jan./Feb./Mar., and get rid of all the arcs on my Netgalley lists ASAP, because they’ve been lingering for ages. The shame! The horror!

Upcoming Guest Posts:

The Quiet You Carry Author Guest Post Discusses Her Book
The Bold Mom Drops in and Discusses Halloween Reads for Valentine’s Day

*trying to get more guest authors/bloggers to drop in, if interested comment below!

Aside from that, it’s been productive. I’m working on writing my own books and I have plenty of other projects going on at the same time as well, such as many short stories, learning graphic design, and enduring the upcoming cold weather that’s about to hit the house again. I hope to do more updates like this daily, and keep track of all the ARCs and books that I’m reading. If you like it, let me know in the comments please!

Until next time,
