January 2019 Recap

Anybody else feel like January drug on forever, but also surprised it’s already over? It was a weird month. The weather was unseasonably warm for a while and then record-breaking low. Gotta’ love Ohio. I didn’t make any firm new year resolutions, but there were a few changes I really wanted to start implementing…that didn’t last more than the first week. I think I’m going to consider January a trial-month and start fresh in February. Book-wise, though, things are going pretty well for me. I’m really happy with the number of books I managed this month.

Grishaverse series coming to Netflix

Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha and Six of Crows books are combining into a Grishaverse tv series on Netflix! It will be amazing seeing these characters and universe come to life, but I am so nervous about the casting for Kaz Brekker!

  1. You definitely had a great reading month, Stephanie! I’ve only read 3 books this month, but I’m about to go on a reading binge. I got caught up in a Netflix series (Bloodline) and couldn’t stop watching! Happy February to you – hope you are staying warm in Cleveland. It is pretty cold here in PA!

  2. This month did feel weird. It lasted forever, and the weather is awful. I really hope it does get to 50 on Sunday, even though I’m not sure my sinuses can handle it!!

    I got approved for Flatshare!! And the Unhoneymooners. I’m so glad you liked them both – I’m excited to read them. You had a great reading month!!

    • I had a headache all day yesterday due to the weather change. But I’ll take it if it means all the ice on the sidewalks at my apartment melts haha. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of The Unhoneymooners and The Flatshare. And thanks again for meeting for coffee yesterday! It was great to see you and get caught up!

      • I’m glad it warmed up, but like you, I had a headache all weekend because of it, too!
        I had a great time – thanks for meeting me!! I’ll let you know about the Harlan Coben event…I’m going to look it up online today.

  3. I am nervous/excited about the Grishaverse coming to Netflix. On one hand, I want to see it do well and be amazing, but one the other, adaptations in general aren’t always that great. Let’s cross our fingers this ends up being one of the good ones. Happy February!

  4. I always feel like New Year’s resolutions are so intense, so I personally prefer to make monthly resolutions, because I get a lot more fresh starts that way. 😉 Plus, it helps me pick just one or two small things and really focus on making good habits out of them instead of feeling like I need to do all 307 things I need to change about myself at once!! I’m sure you’ll do better in February. If nothing else, your reading is in great shape! 😀

  5. That’s awesome you read so many books! I only read one in January, LoL. I hope to start reading the Six of Crows series before the Netflix adaptation comes out, heard it’s a really good series.
