*peeks out from under a rock* Oh heck, is it February already? The passage of time is really something, huh.
Since around mid-January I’ve found myself really not wanting to pick up anything off my TBR, for some genuinely inexplicable reason, so my read count is a bit lower than usual (though still respectable, if I do say so myself) and comprised largely of rereads — but hey, reading is reading.
Earlier this month, I finally caught up on the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire — yes, all 15 books (so far). That’s a lot of time to spend with the main cast; naturally I’ve gotten quite attached and thus wanted to pay tribute to a select few of my favorites.

My excitement for reading challenges has dropped sharply over the past year, so I’m really paring it down this year and focusing more on writing thoughtful (and timely) reviews. But I couldn’t totally abstain from joining (and, in one case, continuing) a few reading challenges, hence this post.
Truth be told I haven’t yet finished updating Goodreads, so my Year in Books and 2021 on Goodreads aren’t wholly accurate or complete. But even if I had, I’d still be compiling this post to share the metrics and reads that I personally find most compelling. So there.
Bringing this one back a third time, because I still think it’s great — who will be your biggest cheerleader if not yourself? As always, please feel free to consider yourself tagged if you want to be; just don’t forget to link back to the original post (or this one is fine too) so I can find and read all your answers!
A new year’s Resolution:
Not to let my dreams stay dreams,
But rather to pursue them headlong
Until my every day is as bright as it seems.
I’ll be honest, I scheduled this post primarily to give myself a kick to finally catch up on my ARC reviews. Some were great; some were disappointing; some were in between — but as the name implies, they all deserve honest reviews.
