The other day, my friend told me that she thought it was January 14. I kind of see her thinking. How is it February already? How did 1/12 of 2018 pass us by so quickly? It’s kind of amazing how time flys.
All in all, January was a pretty good month. I read a lot, wrote a little, and took a short break from blogging.
Now, let’s travel back to January!
Books With Wings
You know that your year is off to a great start when you’ve read twenty books in January. I don’t know how I did it.
I think that I’m going to have to go with Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. I was finally able to check this out at the library, and it was so good! I was on an emotional roller coaster throughout the entire book. You need to read this if you haven’t already.
Ban This Book by Allan Gratz. I feel like a Food Network judge by saying this. The book had a great concept but fell flat on the execution. The idea was that a girl fights the banning of books. Great idea. However, with details about the character, it fell super flat. I really did not enjoy reading this.
Other Notable Reads:
Snow and Rose by Emily Winfield Martin and The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Wow, these books were great. They had great plots, interesting characters, and just wow. I will definitely be purchasing these sometime soon. I will also be reading more John Green books.
Writing With Wings
I planned on writing a lot this month, typing out my first novel. But, I didn’t do very much of it. It needed a lot of editing, so it was kind of hard to type. I really want to finish typing it this month.
Songs With Wings
This month, I attempted to create a playlist of all of my favorite Taylor Swift songs. It ended up having forty songs on it. I think I might be a slight Swiftie, don’t you think?

Dogs With Wings
I took a short blogging break to work on my site and really think about who I wanted to be as a blogger. My blog will now be filled with book posts and reviews. I also got a Pinterest for my blog.
Not to mention, we hit 75 Winged Wonders! Thank you all so much! It really means a lot to me, and I can’t wait to see where we go next! Expect a celebration post very soon.
My most popular post in January was Something Big Is Happening, where I talked about the changes I was making to my blog.
I had a great time making book crafts, so that was probably my favorite post of the month.
