Monthly Wrap Up | January 2018

Posted February 1, 2018 by Tina in Challenges Recap, Monthly Recap, Recap / 10 Comments


A Monthly Recap is exactly what it sounds like, a recap of the month. I’ll be recapping books I read, posts of the month, a little bit of what’s going on outside the blog, and a little bit of what I have plan in the upcoming month. I’ll be linking up my monthly wrap to Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

January seemed like a long month or maybe it was just me? But anyway, it was a semi productive month. I already have so many things to do already in February so I’m already behind and it is only the 1st.
