The Monthly Recap: January 2021

Posted February 2, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments


The Monthly Recap posts are a way for me to take a look back and reflect on my previous month in books, movies, and Korean dramas. From what I read, what I watched, what I got, and the books, shows, and movies that I need to get to. I always lose track of what I have, what I need to read, what I want to watch and I need these posts to keep me honest with my damn self because I be forgetting shit.

January was a chance for me to start fresh. I have personal goals, financial goals, and professional goals (mostly to be nicer to my coworkers) and I wanted to find a balance between all of the things that I like. Books, dramas, movies, and now, music. I’m still working on perfecting that balance but I’m getting there and that makes me happy.

Here’s what my month in January looked like…

    • Hey you! Happy New Year!! I enjoyed The Intimacy Project so I hope you get to read it soon. As for The Traitor Queen, it’s an adult fantasy (it’s the second book in the Bridge Kingdom series, so good!). Happy reading, Amber Elise!
