2019// Bye January, Hello February

January was a month that seemed to take forever. I almost can’t believe it’s only been 31 days.

I started of January with a reread of Everless. It didn’t take me long to finish it and I finished reading Six of Crows not long after. Then I decided to read Two Dark Reigns, and if you follow me on Twitter you might already know this, but it took me forever to read. I only just finished it, not even two hours before this is being posted. I had really hoped I had been able to read more.

I am really happy with the amount of blog posts I have written this month and the way my blog looks at the moment. I am also starting to slowly find my place in the blogging community and my blog has grown quite a bit this month as well! I have been blogging/bookstagramming since 2015 (!!) and only recently I have discovered people I could possibly be friends with and bloggers whose voices I really value. It makes me very happy that it obviously was a great choice to pick blogging over bookstagramming a bit more.

January was also my birthday month and the month winter decided to show up. Love the way the snow looks, but I’m not a fan of the cold at all.

I am anticipating next month a lot! On February 1 I will be posting the first Little Writing Challenge and I can’t wait to see how that goes. Next month I will be going to Seoul for modeling work and I am sooooo excited! I have been wanting to visit South Korea for a while now, so this is a dream come true. I will be posting weekly updates on my blog, just like I did while I was in Istanbul. See you all next month!

    I know January does seem like it goes on a little longer than every other month. Like how was Christmas just over a month ago– haha.
    I’ve read the first two book before two dark reigns and they weren’t my favourite so I wasn’t going to pick up the next one. You’ve got some nice new books this month– always exciting getting new books. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the ones you have as well.
    Going to Seoul sounds exciting– best of luck with that. I hope you have a fabulous February!!
