Monthly Review

Monthly Review – February 2018

Sooooo I definitely broke that reading slump and I’m feeling pretty darn good about it! I spent a lot of this month reading graphic novels, short fiction, and essays which was all easy enough to consume in one sitting and it really helped me to feel excited again about reading something new each day. In blogging news, not much besides my usual writing, I got a lot of new reviews done and have my posts all set up and scheduled for the next month, so that’s exciting. Edited my template for monthly review posts to more clearly mark the star ratings with links to goodreads pages on books I’ve read. A small detail, but I figure more convenient for readers.

I also joined Evelina‘s book blogging group and already made some new blogging friends through it which has been great. πŸ™‚ I hope you all are having a wonderful reading year thus far! It’s so good to be back to reading, I’ve sorely missed it and the blogging community in general.

Reading Next Month


  1. Yayyy for getting out of reading slumps! And re-designing posts is super satisfying. πŸ˜‰ And I used to be able to schedule a week’s worth of posts in advance, but a month!? You’re a superhero.

    Thank you so much for featuring my post! ^_^

    1. Ahhh, yeah I tend to schedule a lot of things in advance for those inevitable busy weeks with work or writing burnout.

      Also of course! Thank you for writing such a great post! ❀

  2. A month of post scheduling??? I have a hard time getting a week scheduled in advance now, much less than a month. O_O

    It sounds like you got a lot done throughout February – yay for getting out of reading slumps! Those are awful to get out of, and they’re almost like black holes.

    (I thought I recognized you from the group! :D)

    1. Haha, yeah I ended up grabbing a few book tags that were fun and easy to write to shuffle in between a handful of new reviews I recently wrote. Having a two post a week schedule also makes it easier for me to keep up and plan ahead.

      And yes I’m in Evelina’s Blogging group. ^_^ I need to do some blog hops from the list of members soon!

  3. Evelina

    Yay for conquering reading slumps πŸ™‚ I’m happy for you. A slump sucks, but breaking one – the feeling is almost worth it πŸ™‚

    You joined the group just last month? It feels like it was so long ago now! Time is an odd thing, isn’t it πŸ™‚

    Looks like most of your reads were so good πŸ™‚ wishing you a great reading March!

    1. I know, time definitely flies by fast! I’m thrilled to have finally broken my reading slump, I feel much happier reading again. Also yes, I think February was a mostly good reading month for me, I found a few new favorites. πŸ™‚ Thank you Evelina, I hope March is great for you as well!
