January Wrap Up

I thought I would start doing an end of the month wrap up mostly to get some more book stuff on to this blog. (I still have my book blog here if you want to follow book reviews and news and things of that nature. I post there fairly regularly.)

I may also include little or big things that have happened in the previous month. I'm not really sure yet what I want to do with these. So bear with me. Or share suggestions!

So I decided to participate in a general reading challenge posted by The Bookish Canuck:
 The original link can be found here.

I hope this will give me a change to finally get to books that have been on my to-read list forever because I will have to read more than just my usual stuff. Some of the categories have various possibilities, but I did manage to cross a few off this month.

Completed Challenges:
A book from the start of a series: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
A book you read in a day: Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers
A biography/autobiography (I count memoirs): Are You There, God? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler.
And more are in the works.

My favorite book read this month: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Seriously under-hyped book. I thought it was outstanding.
Least favorite book read this month: Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler.
(Head to my book blog to see reviews.)

Other happenings this month:
Death of David Bowie and Alan Rickman, both of which made me very sad. I still cry about David Bowie's death. Being a fan of his is part of my identity (which you see if you read my profiles anywhere and everywhere). But this did lead me to get my tattoo in his memory, which I love.

I bought a new (to me) car, which was a huge step.

Here is to a better February!

(And forgive the delay, I tried to post this last night, but our internet was out for a while.)
