Posted February 14, 2024 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 0 Comments

BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I didn’t have an amazing reading month in January from a quantity perspective, but man was the quality good! I had a great overall rating. I managed to even finish both of the first two Crescent City books by the end of the month, which was my goal. Now I’m still slogging through the third one…
