There goes... January & February!



Looking back..

I did not post a there goes for January. When the end of the month came along I just hurt my back badly and could not sit behind a computer properly for a week. Starting at a new position at work I was happy I could keep up with the regular posts and decided to put the January summary in with the February one.

Work..

Has been crazy. I moved to another position and am now a junior software developer instead of working the service desk. I have been learning like crazy of the past years to become a developer but it is all overwhelming and I am usually exhausted when I get home. It is nice though all the new challenges but it does have a big influence on my

Reading..

Not a lot. Well compared to other people I obviously still read a lot but for me it is not. If I finish a book a week I am happy. I do notice I get frustrated by this a bit but I just have to accept it for now and it will get better. I read 12 books in the last two months and a most of them were really good.

Challenges..

I am still on top of my challenges. I am doing the Goodreads Reading Challenge and am 4 books ahead. I read 3 books for my The Mount TBR Reading Challenge that I set on 12 books. I did not read a book that qualifies for Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge yet.

Books..

I read 12 books in the last two months and reviewed a view of them too. I loved The Ex by Alafair Burke and Try Not To Breathe by Holly Seddon. I did not buy many new books but found a lot of interesting books at the bookexchange point in the train station.

March..

PIPPIN the musical will come to Amsterdam in March. I must admit I have booked a few shows in the weekends which will probably interfere with my reading but it does mean a lot of train time with books. I am on track with my review copies and will mostly concentrate on them. Though I will try to put in 1 more book for my Mount TBR challenge. Might have to look in the the Book Riot Challenge too and see if I can fit something in there.

Congratulations on your new position at work, Ciska!
You'll get on track with your reading speed soon, I'm sure. Anyway, you read far more than I do, so it's still a lot!
Have fun in all the events you are attending in March.
Kisses!!
