Currently Obsessed With is a once-a-month feature where I talk about my favorite things from the last month!
January felt like such a weird month! There was reading, but I just couldn’t get myself to actually review the books I read. Some of them, anyway. Hopefully, a trip to Starbucks or the library will do the trick, because attempting to write some reviews during my lunch break didn’t work out very well. I feel like I mostly stared at pinterest, or curled up in bed the second I got home from work, which is super-weird for me. I feel like I’m starting to come out of whatever funk I was in, so hopefully I’ll get back to reading and reviewing soon!
Not a lot of book-buying happened last month! Just Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder from Audible, and that’s it.
I continued working on a blanket that I’ve been working on for a while. I finished it last night, which is good, considering it’s a birthday present for my grandma, and her birthday is tomorrow! I have a couple projects I need to get started on (baby gifts for a co-worker), and after that…I have no idea what to work on next. I’ll figure it out eventually, I just need to get through the baby gifts first!
I haven’t really watched anything- I’m just waiting for Beauty And The Beast to come out (which reminds me, I don’t even know when that is). I haven’t really been in the mood to watch anything, but maybe that will change this month!
Around The Internet:
Why We Need More New Adult Books.
This is an interesting article on social isolation.
I also really liked this article about how one man helped shaped climate change.
Has anyone else read this transcript of President Obama talking about what books mean to him? I thought it was absolutely fascinating.
Speaking of President Obama, I also thought this article about the letters mailed to the White House was really fascinating.
I never really thought about how restaurants prep for VIP’s before.
The ALA Midwinter award list has some amazing books and authors on it! I really need to read March by John Lewis.
Things YA authors need to stop doing.
Also: Should authors agree with everything they write?
I’ve been listening to Brave Enough by Lindsey Stirling a lot over the last month! It’s so good, and it’s interesting because she normally does a lot of instrumentals, with one or two songs that have vocals. But the songs on Brave Enough are split between instrumentals and vocals, and those are the ones I ended up loving. Here are two of my favorites!
