Place: Desk in my temporal apartment
Eating & Drinking: Mint tea with honey for a sore throat
Reading: During the first two weeks of January I didn't read that much with the planning and preparation, but I've compensated it (prepare for a batch of mini-reviews!). I've recently finished Nellie Bly's Around the World in Seventy-Two Days and loved it, and I'm about a quarter through Tor.com's annual short story collection... of 2014! It has been languishing in my TBR pile for almost a year. I want to finish it before they publish the new one.
Listening: Lots of radio. Will I get used to French?
Watching: Downton Abbey. I abandoned it midway through but I got the Downton bug last week and watched three episodes in a row. It's as soapy as I remember it, but at the same time so good!
Loving: Tourism! I always like getting to know new places.
Promoting: I'm going to be participating in two events during February:
- Little Women Read-Along hosted by Jenni Elyse, Kami and Suey. I'm very excited about this, since it's been a really long time since I last read Little Women. It will also be my monthly classic for the Women's Classic Literature Event organized by The Classics Club.
- The Reluctant Romantic Challenge hosted by Katie, which is about getting acquainted with a genre that you've always meant to read but never seem to get around to, or even with a genre you're scared of! I'll be doing romance. I read my first real romance novel last year, but I'm still very new to the genre.
