Another month has passed and it’s been a crazy one. I got back on the reading train properly after having a long bout of meh reads and lack of motivation to read new things. This month I reached the 40 mark in my reading year for 2017 and it’s only February. I also successfully made pancakes (why yes, I am finishing this post off on the last day of the month rather than planning ahead) and did it all on my lonesome with no judgement from anyone. My friends had some good news this month so we had things to celebrate as well (always nice) and basically it was a good month, although the end of the month has crept up on me this time. Let’s take a look back at all the bookish and blogging related ways it’s been good, shall we?
