Currently Reading:

I'm in a little bit of a slump at the moment. A kind of everything slump, blogging, reading, everything. Which is why a) I'm not currently reading much of anything and b) I might not be on this blog as much this month.

What's happened this month:

+ I reviewed a lot of books this month, including Ida by Alison Evans, Caraval by Stephanie Garber & Ora's Gold by Charlotte Freeman.

+ I also revealed that I was chosen for the Tsar's Guard Spotlight Tour for which I created a character tag! 
+ I finally posted a Harry Potter themed post FINALLY and talked about all the things I've been enjoying in the first three books! (There is a lot of hippogriff discussion I suggest looking at it!)

What's On This Week (Posting Wise)?

ANYWAY I'm not sure. I'm in a kind of blogging SLUMP, I just don't even know. Bloggers help, blogging slumps? How to get out of them? I think I need a bit of a break. 

Let me know, was January a good reading month for you? Are you ahead or behind on your Goodreads Goal?
