2015 Monthly Recap Janurary Edition / Sunday Post #18

Wow. We're already one month into 2015? That was fast...

So, I thought this year I would do a monthly recap spotlighting some of my favorite posts and books from the month plus checking in on my Challenges! This week this will be combined with my Sunday Post!


For the TBR Pile Challenge, I read 1/12 so that's a good start! For this I read The Last Dragonslayer which was, unfortunately, a bit disappointing.

For the 2015 Discussion Challenge I did two discussion posts! Which is one more than I was planning and I actually have a couple more ready that I haven't gotten around to posting so that's good! That's 2/12, as at the moment my goal remains at 12 for the year.

For Flights Of Fantasy I've read 4/50

Upcoming Next Month: Well, I revamped Ships I Don't Ship which will be a monthly feature and probably be posted around the same time next month. While next week I'm starting my OTP posts otherwise known as Ships I DO Ship. Thirdly, I'm starting another monthly feature that is going to be called Bookish Mind Control...yeah. I'm really excited for all of that.

Lastly,  I'm going to be revealing my real name and getting rid of Nobody, which will include an awesome post and a giveaway! For this though I am looking for anyone who wants to contribute to the post! All you'd have to do is email me, you can use the contact me gadget on the side of the blog OR comment below, and pick a name(it can be yours or just one you really like) and a cool fact about the name, either by looking it up or like if it's a favorite character/authors name then a quote! So, a name and something cool to go with it, email me(of comment) that and I will put it into the post along with your name and blog link! Anyone is welcome to do this even if you hardly never check out the blog! Also, anyone that contributes will get 3 extra entries for the Giveaway as a thank you!

Top 1 Disappointment Of January:

The Sunday Post

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

This is a meme where every Sunday you can share what's been going this week in your life and on your blog! It's also good for bragging about all your new lovely books!

Real Life
Not much happened this week besides when I almost killed myself by eating 3 dessert egg rolls after a huge dinner! And I cut about 8 inches of hair off!

Besides that it's been a lot of work on my book and being disappointed somewhat by Fairest... =(
But, I did revamp my Ships I Don't Ship Posts and it featured a couple from Harry Potter!

New Books
I didn't request any more books! yay!


This Week On The Blog
I talked about Changing My Name and Over Thought Everything, then I asked for Help for my Name Reveal Post, I Reviewed To All The Boys I've Loved Before, and talked about a Ship I Don't Ship!

On my writing blog Grace&Steele(I'm Steele!) I talked about my Writing Quirks and some projects I'm currently working on! I also did a monthly update post with my co-blogger Grace!

So, that's it! Happy February! I have no idea what I'll be doing next week but I probably won't have a post up until Tuesday. Tell me, how was your week? Reading any good books!?


  1. Awh it sucks that Fairest didn't make the cut for you :( I've heard good things about it so far, but I think I'll lower my expectations for it now. And I might send you an email if I remember to!

    1. Great! And yeah, I've heard a lot of good things about Fairest, and it is good, it just wasn't something I enjoyed that much!

  2. I'm sorry Fairest was a disappointment, but I'm looking forward to your review. I'm planning on reading Scarlet and Cress this month, since I really need to catch up on the series. I'm also looking forward to your reveal post..I tried googling my name, but as I suspected, it kind of sucks (I like my name, but not it's origin). Petra is the female version of Petrus (or Petros), and that's about it. Like, thank you for the originality..? :)

    1. Haha, originality is overrated! Then no one even knows how to pronounce your name let alone spell it! (Also, I'm still totally counting that for my post... =D )

  3. I have got into Melissa Meyers books. Sorry you where disappointed by Fairest.

    Happy Reading.

  4. Too bad you had a couple of reading disappointments in January. Hate when that happens. Wow on getting 8 inches cut off your hair! Most of the time I'm too chicken to make big changes but I'm always so glad when I do. Have a great week!

  5. YAY TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE LOVE LOVE. SO excited for the sequel.

    Also, excited to hear your name... I mean, I've always assumed it was... a name from your other blog... dun dun dun... Or am I totally off.

    Anywho, fun week on your blog!!

  6. I read Kiss of Deception when it came out last year and it was sooo freaking good!! Check out my weekly update!!

  7. I have read some really good books, You can see the books I have read, I also posted/published quite a few book this past month and you can check it out in my Sunday Post or just scroll down and it right under the Sunday Post. It called "Monthly Wrap up - January" if you want to check it out.

  8. It's a shame about Fairest. That cover is amazing. Too bad the story wasn't for you. Thanks for sharing the updates on your challenges. I'll do mine next week and better get to it. LOL
    My Sunday Post -

  9. I never heard of a dessert egg roll. What's in one? My post:

  10. I am sad about Fairest :( Granted, I still haven't read Scarlet, so I don't know why I am so sad, but still, it pains me for the future. Also, 8 inches of hair IS a lot! My goodness! What prompted the change? I am so excited for your upcoming name change too :) Hope you have a wonderful week!

  11. Too bad about Fairest but yay for the hair change ! It's surprising how a new haircut can be good for the soul :) Have a great week !

  12. WHAT HAPPENED TO FAIREST? NOOOOOOO. I'm going to be reading that soon though. Then I'll read your review on it if you post one AND I WILL SEE. Gah.

    YOUR REAL NAME WOWOWOOW. Hahah I already know it I feel so cool :)
