January’s been pretty uneventful, except for getting a lovely cold. Fortunately I’d scheduled a ton of reviews ahead of time, so my blog didn’t go silent for the week it hurt to look at a screen.
I read 20 books, wrote a ton of reviews, and did a couple of maintenance things on the blog. The big thing was renewing my hosting and domain name: www.leeanna.me is sticking around for at least 2 more years!
I intended to do a bit more at the end of the month, but I’ve been speeding through the Milkweed Triptych by Ian Tregillis. A friend had been wanting me to read the series forever, and now that I finally did… I don’t know why I kept putting it off! I read the books for fun, but now I’m toying with reviewing them. Do you ever read books for fun and then end up writing reviews anyway?
Onto what I read:
- Ruined (The Eternal Balance #1) by Jus Accardo.

Waiting on Wednesday:
I’m going back to doing Waiting on Wednesday – it’s such an easy way to feature upcoming books I’m looking forward to, as well as an easy way to find more books to be excited about.
Other Book Posts:
My big goal for February is to try and create a review posting schedule. I’d like to try and post reviews for upcoming books a week or two before the release or just after, since I think that’s the best time to post, if possible. So this will require some organization, because I’ve already got some reviews written for February/March books. Yay to being halfway organized!
