January 18 - 24
My 2021 reading is off to an excellent start! I’ve been able to focus on my books and have finally started reading / listening to audiobooks! For so long, I couldn’t focus on audiobooks and didn’t really process information as well without being able to see the words, but I have listened to a few audiobooks lately via a Scribd free trial and I think I am going to stick with it.
My blog also got a little makeover, and I am having a lot of fun behind the scenes working with the updates!
I had so many giftcards to spend on books from Christmas, and I held on to them for a few weeks until I was sure that I knew what I wanted to get with them!
These Violent Delights, Chloe Gong;
Wench, Maxine Kaplan;
The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry, C.M. Waggoner;
The Raven Tower, Ann Leckie; and
Woman World, Aminder Dhaliwal.
I also received two e-ARCs from Simon & Schuster Canada:
I have finished 20 books so far this year, 7 of them this past week:
Stillhouse Lake, Rachel Caine;
Those Who Prey, Jennifer Moffett;
The Cold Is In Her Bones, Peternelle van Arsdale;
The Ravens, Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige; and
Light For the World to See: A Thousand Words on Race and Hope, Kwame Alexander.
Posts and reviews:
I’ve been busy with the blog this year!
I’ve also posted 7 reviews:
One of the Good Ones, Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite;
The Push, Ashley Audrain;
The Cousins, Karen M. McManus;
Admission, Julie Buxbaum;
The Wife Upstairs, Rachel Hawkins;
Kind of a Big Deal, Shannon Hale; and

I’m planning to spend the rest of my day curled up in my reading chair with my books and some coffee.
