January was not a great month for me: personally, professionally, as a reader, none of it.  So I don’t have a whole lot to say here!  I did end the month with two books that I absolutely adored, so that’s always exciting, and reviews will be coming very soon.  Thank you all for bearing with me as I’ve been very behind on blogging lately; I haven’t been reading a whole lot and tend to find myself gravitating away from ‘filler content’ for my blog, so sometimes that naturally leads to weeks-long hiatuses.  Hopefully February will see my triumphant return.

  1. Ah, I hope February will be a better time for you! It’s always nice to end a subpar month on a high though, and I’m glad The Glass Hotel was such a hit for you! I’m really looking forward to that one. Also looking forward to your thoughts on Little Gods and Long Bright River- I hope you’ll enjoy the latter as much as I did!
