Month in Review

January in Review

I started my blog shortly before the New Year, and it has been a blast. I have 15 WordPress and Bloglovin’ followers! While this may not seem like a lot of followers, I am very thankful to have these followers. Many of them have their own blogs, which I enjoy reading. Blogging tends to have a reputation for being superficial, but in the last month, I have discovered many bloggers who are not only great writers but maintain very intellectually stimulating blogs.

At the end of each month I will have a post like this one summarizing the texts that I have read. I will be using a smiley face rating system, where 5 smileys means that I absolutely loved the work and one means that I hated it.

So, without further ado, here is what I read:
