January Wrap Up

Thirty-one days just went poof. Just like that. It’s beginning to be a trend. Have you noticed?

Anyway, it’s been a busy month: book blogging, writing, trying desperately to make myself organized. I read recently that organizing guru Marie Kondo is not as organized anymore after her third child. And, if she’s cried “uncle,” what hope have I? You know, except not having toddlers running around–but that’s pretty much what dogs are: toddlers in fur suits. Ha. Yes, I have found a loophole in my struggle.

January was a fantastic month for me regarding the books I read and I am hoping that bodes well for the rest of the year. Of the ten books I’ve read only one was below a four and most were five butterflies! During the month I discovered the Finlay Donovan series that I’ve just adored. Yesterday I posted a review of the latest audiobook. If you like funny, smart mysteries (with some slapstick), check this series out.

Some of the books reviewed (links lead to the book reviews):

Accidentally Famous by Marissa Clarke
Because You Loved Me by Beth Moran
There’s No Place Like Home by Jane Lovering
You Should Smile More by Anastasia Ryan
Write for Life by Julia Cameron

You may have noticed that I’ve also tried to start writing more. Funnily enough it wasn’t Julia Cameron’s book that has nudged me through writer’s block but a statement in a fiction book about writing one scene and then another scene (scene can be substituted with whatever it is you’re trying to write) even if they are bad until you have a whole bunch of scenes.

One rather onerous task facing me is repairing my blog. Part of this is on WordPress. At some point in the past six months, my categories and sub-categories became meaningless. I am hoping that it’s just a matter of re-establishing the categories in the theme. Perhaps that’s a task to be checked on now rather than procrastinating (as I have been doing).

Lastly, I’ll leave you with a few January pictures.
