January Wrap Up / February Planning

Oh January. I had to finish up my editing job in January, so every time I debated doing something fun, I had to (sometimes begrudgingly) do my editing stuff. And now I am staring at the hours, knowing I have to log them….but I am glad it is done!

So here’s a break down of my January:

Books Read (That Were Planned)

  • 5th Wave by Rick Yancey 5/5 Moose
  • The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey 4/5 Moose
  • Carry On by Rainbow Rowell 4.5/5 Moose (It was originally 4, but then I finished Fangirl and bumped it up a little bit. Review to come this week.)
  • Broken by Susanne Valenti (ARC) 3/5 Moose
  • Teen Frankenstein by Chandler Baker (ARC) 3.75/5 Moose
  • Cranky Ladies of History – Short story compilation (Still Reading)

Books Read (That Were Not Planned)

  • Saga Volumes 1-5 [I didn’t write up a review because I haven’t read enough graphic novels to judge them, but oh boy. So good!]

Podcasts I started and recommend

Projects to Work On

  • 85 lines of my 4th Doctor scarf
  • Presents for Grey
  • Hats for a friend’s daughter

I worked on stuff for Grey, but I haven’t finished anything yet, ugh. February will definitely have more crochet time.
