January Wrap-up

The fact that the first month of 2018 is already over fills me with physical pain and mild panic.

(You should get that checked out.)

I would like to say that this has been a gloriously productive January, but I'm worried that if I did say that I'd start laughing uncontrollably and never stop. 

News from the Reading Front

I finished five books this month -

Good Wives by Louisa May Alcott - 4 Stars - Review

Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market and Other Poems by Christina Rossetti

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater - 4 Stars - Review

Agnes Grey by Anne Bront

And one manga book.

News from the Writing Front

If you haven't tried writing to Evanescence, I totally recommend it.
News from the Blogging Front

Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with Intense Debate? Is it a glitchy comment platform, or is it just me? No one else who uses it on their site seems to have had any problems, but sometimes it doesn't even appear on my posts. I don't want to change - I'm a creature of habit - and, right now, I don't have any time on my hands to devote to overhauling any part of my blog, but it's long passed the point where it was an issue I could ignore.

Did you have a productive January?

  1. Hmm... I might be able to help with the intense debate thing since I use it myself but it does tend to be weird sometimes? Lately my website area doesn't even show but it shows on my other blog, which I'm not amused about. 😤

    I've given up on intense debate and plan on moving to WordPress. 🤷
