Well, we reached the end of another month in 2020. I’m still here, and I sincerely hope you’re all doing whatever you can to get yourselves through this … very, very strange time we’re now living in. But let’s not get into that here, today. Today, I’m here to round up what was a very stop-start-surprise!binge sort of month, reading-wise. Then we can finally turn our attention toward the third annual Wyrd and Wonder celebration of fantasy! But first…
The Deverry Readalong continues apace, and February saw me reading Darkspell for the first time. Things get darker and more dangerous, both in the past, the present and presumably in the future, for our Wyrd-bound heroes – and I’m here for all of it.
It’s been a heck of a month, and not really in the best way. Spring is struggling to appear here, and it’s taking a bit of a toll on my moods – but the upside to having to accept being largely stuck indoors for a month is that I get to indulge in all the books/tv/films I can stand! Let’s review February.
The new year is here, and I wish everything felt shiny and new. On a personal level, I do have a refreshed outlook, and a newly-tapped sense of determination not to let the bastards grind me down. Pardon the language if you will, but I suspect it’s understandable. Anyway! This is about good things that got done, isn’t it? So let’s talk about the joy I found in January.
