Let's Recap January


Oof - January was a big month. As history repeated itself, I spent my time doing the things I love. I read, blogged, took photos .. yet I still had my downs. My family lost our beloved Dakota, those first weeks really hurt. But I'm here, doing better! Anyway, let's recap January.

Jollygirl @ Reflections of a Jolly Girl did the Disney Book Tag and I adored her answers.

  1. January was SO WORTHWHILE because of all that book news. I know me and you are particularly excited for Maggie, but I'm also pumped for E.Lockhart's new book!! I loveeee the way she writes. I kinda want to read the Fantastic Beasts screenplay but I feel like it's kind of a waste? I've seen the movie, so I'm finding it hard to convince myself that I need to see it in print too lol! Is there anything really special about it?

    1. I know right?! Me too! I picked up the screenplay because I wanted to relive the magic of Fantastic Beasts. I just loved that movie so much. Haha too cheesy?
      Special? Not really. But the actual book is beautiful! I find that to be pretty worthy to pick up the book haha

  2. ALL THE CROOKED SAINTS LOOKS AMAZING ALREADY, AHHHH. And I'm kind of relieved that it's a standalone, tbh. Series always stress me out because they're so much of a commitment, lmao.

    I read seven books in January, which is not as many as I hoped but still not horrid. I think my favorites were The Martian by Andy Weir and Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice :)
