January and February Wrap-Up and Updates

January and February Wrap-Up and Updates

Wow. Just wow, y’all.

There’s been a lot going on in my reading/writing/blogging life; hence few posts on here recently!

So here’s the most exciting thing:

It’s the header for my new column on the Ms. Magazine blog! I. am. dead. I love it so much. Many thanks to Carmen Rios for the design and for being an amazing editor and person!

So there’s one post up currently, my 2019 Reads for the Rest of Us. This is a list of the books by and for the rest of us that I am most excited about this year; check it out if you haven’t already. A new list will be coming each month. Carmen’s been super busy with the new Ms. website design — which also looks fantastic! — but March’s should be up any day now. SO very excited about this.

So now you will find some of my book reviews here as usual but also some on the Ms. blog. Follow me on Twitter to keep up to date with my writing.

More writing and quicker turnaround times have made it clear that I really need to re-work my schedule. Not sure what this looks like yet, so any of your organizational tips are welcomed! I have calendars and a spreadsheet for keeping my reviewing straight but not sure it’s all working… I might just need a little time to get used to it all. Or perhaps I need to stop binge-watching Project Runway?

Anyway, so here are my wrap-ups for January and February!

I set a reading goal of 50 books for 2019. I finished 2018 at 53 so I think I can do it.

So far this year, I have read six books:

And looking ahead…

I am writing:

  • April 2019 Reads for the Rest of Us for Ms. Magazine
  • Reviews for Tonic and Balm and God’s Will and Other Lies
  • Column about poetry for Ms. Magazine – April 2019

Challenge updates

It has been rough trying to get to my monthly wrap-up challenge and my classics reading list. Those will continue to be on hold while I put a new schedule in place.

That’s all the time I’ve got for now. Follow the blog, my social media, and Ms. Magazine for future updates! Thanks for all of your continued support!
