January ’16 Recap

~My Life~

This is a super late recap, I meant to do it sooner and just didn’t feel like it.

Well, what can I say? It was a month. As far as good/bad months go, it was pretty okay really. I don’t think anything particularly exciting happened, but I could be forgetting something.

So while I didn’t post a lot, I did post the most reviews I have in a while! That was really nice, I have a couple things planned for this month with some group reviews, hopefully I can get those done…

~Blogosphere Participation~

I participated in Bout of Books! But I kind of failed because I didn’t even finish the first book I wanted to read. Then I forgot about Bloggiesta. 😦

~What I’ve Been Watching~


I started binge watching Grey’s Anatomy for the first time ever in January and currently I’m up to the 5th season. Impressive you say? Well, you’re right! 😉 I will hopefully write up a post on my feelings when I’m finished watching all the show that’s out right now. If you’d like to follow along, I tag everything as “#AmberBingesGreysAnatomy”. Here’s a warning, there are spoilers and I can get very rangy about certain characters, so. 😉 Proceed with caution.

How was your guys’ first month? Did you do anything exciting? Has it gone well so far? Are you already in any kind of slump, like I kind of was? Are you reading anything good? Have you watched anything new?
