I’ve noticed that my January weeks have been rather blah lately, but I’m happy to say this week was definitely better! It wasn’t amazing or anything, and my job was worse–only because of a scheduling mix-up and annoyances and such–but personally, life was on the up. I can’t say exactly why I’ve been feeling “blah” these past few weeks, but this tends to happen to me in January/February/beginning of March. It’s often my least favorite time of the year.
ALSO, it sort of snowed in central Texas, where I am! I say “sort of” because anyone who is from a place where it snowed regularly would laugh at the little 1/16th-ish of an inch we got–just a light covering–but hey, in Texas, you take what you can get.
On Monday I busted a book blogging myth that Pinterest is of no use to book bloggers.
Tuesday I shared what’s on my reading wishlist!
Wednesday I reviewed Cruel Beauty.
Thursday I shared what you can do with books you don’t want anymore.
Friday I reviewed Psych Major Syndrome.

Never Have I Ever by Katie Heaney

The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi
I did not buy any books, despite going to the bookstore. Hooray! I did receive The Lightening Thief from Paperback Swap, though. I’ve been meaning to read the Percy Jackson series forever, so now I can finally begin.
I’m a Disorganized Blogger. . . and I Love It! @ NoseGraze
Loved this? Are you a disorganized blogger? I think I’m an organized blogger, in that I like to have post and stuff scheduled, but a disorganized reader. I’m pretty sure the words “Reading schedule” make me break out in hives.
How to Change Fonts in WordPress @ Books a True Story
Changing fonts for the blog was something I always knew I could do, but didn’t know how. And while I’ve meant to Google it for ever, I never got around to it(even though every time I look at my site I want to change the font for the post copy). So this is a great resource!
Comment Replies: Keeping the Conversation Going @ Another Novel Read
I had to take comment reply notification off my blog back in December when I was having all sorts of trouble with plug-ins sending out massive errors and using pretty much all of my hosting space. I deleted all the plug-ins that weren’t an absolute necessity, and have been slowing adding back the ones I wanted to keep. Kelley’s post reminded me I needed to re-enact comment reply notification! I’m actually using a different plug-in this time–called comment email reply, I think, so let me know if it works/doesn’t work like it’s suppose to!
Book Chat: Why I Love the Library @ Starlight Book Reviews
I love the library too. That is all. In fact, I need to go this afternoon and pick up my holds for I am the Messenger & The Impossible Knife of Memory!
Making the Most of Social Networks as a Writer @ (Pub)lishing Crawl
This was a super helpful + informative posts. And even though it’s geared towards writers, I think it’s a good read for bloggers too. It’s a good reminder that you don’t have to do EVERY single social network. I’ve neglected my blog tumblr & facebook lately, and it’s nice to remember the social networks I want to concentrate on–Twitter & Pinterest. Well, and Goodreads technically, but I consider that in a category of its own.
