Oh January, you were not as cold as I wanted you to be.
This month has been okay? Nothing big happened; only a few things worth noting.
- My obsession with comic books went on overload. I was shoving The Wicked + The Divine into people’s face, so there’s that.
- And because of my obsession with comic books, I got into quite of a major reading slump. I still am in this slump, which totally sucks because I want to read! Booo.
- I did get a physical copy of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, which I’m frickin’ excited about! Gotta get some oreos before I start reading it! Yeeeeee.
- I finally read Vicious, and it is as awesome as everybody says it is. SO IN LOVE. THE FOUND FAMILY, JUST, MY FAVEEEE.
- I got a ticket to see Leighton Meester perform in March! YESSSSSSSSS. I’m gonna be swaying and singing along in her presence. ;)

ON THE BLOG
- I reviewed:
- I talked about:
- why you need to read The Wicked + The Divine comic. How can you say no to gods who are incarnated into popstars with only two years to live? You simply can’t!
- the music I listened to 2014. So many wonderful artists you should definitely check out.
- talked about my blogging goals for 2015!
- cover changes in Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke.
- the various Portrait Silhouettes on book covers.
- I wrote letters to:
- Charlotte and I decided to partake in Epic Recs. We discussed the books we recommended to each other.
- I did some sleuthing and found the fonts used for the book titles of Fairest, A Darker Shade of Magic, Soulprint, and Love, Lucy.
- The final voting round for YA Book Cover Choice Awards occurred this past month! And we now have winners! See which covers won each categories!
PLANS FOR FEBRUARY 2015
- Read all the books and prep reviews.
- Start emailing people for new features and whatnot.
- More comic book-pushing.
