January is over!

Here's a recap of the goals I set for myself:

Read Attachments and Room
Write four blog posts

I easily read Attachments and Room.  Attachments was cute, but a tad cheesy even by my standards.  If you're into RomCom novels, I would recommend it.  It has a unique plot and is entertaining.

Room I was a bit disappointed with.  Let me start by saying it wasn't nearly as difficult to read as I planned.  Yes, the plot is disturbing, but since it is written from the perspective of the little boy, the difficult situations seem to be softened a bit given his innocent point of view.

I would have enjoyed the book more had the author chosen to write from Ma's point of view as well.  I think it would've thickened the book, if that makes any sense, and added a depth to the storyline that I felt was lacking.

As for my blog posts.  I technically wrote three, if you count the one that I wrote about my January goals.  I was hoping to write 4 posts after that, but only go around to writing 3.  One notable thing happened in January (the 20th to be exact) that sort of sucked the life out of me, and, in fact, inspired one of my goals for February.

Speaking of February...

This month promises to be exciting.  And here are the goals I have set for myself:

The Book Thief

Crossing to Safety

Four blog posts

Because Facebook sucks.  Big time.

Dinner 4 times a week

Since I am a little behind, I'm officially starting my goals as of February 6th.  If you have any ideas for me as far as posts go, please send them my way.

Happy February!


  1. Good job in January!

    I'm so excited about The Book Thief. The author was super nice and friendly when I met him. When I read the book I expected him to be this kind of eccentric person, but he was totally normal. Like, someone we would hang out with.

    And...is this a total ban on Facebook?

    1. I have heard nothing but good things about The Book Thief. How awesome that you met the author. And, as far as Facebook goes, I'm so up in the air about it. I think, for now, I need to just scale back how often I scroll through my newsfeed. Like you said, it's a cesspool right now.


Leave a thought.
