I started 2014 well and read some fantastic books so it’s very hard to pick just one that stands out. I think Charm and Strange blew me away and stayed in my mind a lot. I also really enjoyed The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender and Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
I wanted to read more non-YA books this year and in January read The Great Gatsby and The Goldfinch, both of which I enjoyed. I also read six non-review books.
Blog-wise: I attended three blogging events this month at Random House, Faber and Books With Bite. I had a great time and thank you so much for the publishers for organising this and inviting me. Full event posts will be coming shortly!
For the first two weeks or so I managed to keep up with posts Mon-Fri but around midway through the month a combination of personal things and a bit of blogging fatigue set in so I relaxed posting a little, in addition to this I was a bit worried some of my posts were being pushed to the wayside due to new content and I have noticed that while stats are up comments are a little down, but I still think five posts a week is the best way forward for me at the moment.
Personal: This month I officially graduated from university, which was a bit final and daunting! Thankfully I managed to walk in heels (after months of avoiding them) and not fall over in the ceremony.
