I had a pretty good reading month! The best book I reviewed this month was Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. I am utterly enamoured with the worldbuilding and the writing is so gorgeous! Seraphina is such a wonderful heroine as well. I am really looking forward to Shadow Scale.
I also read two ARCs, reviews for which will go up nearer the publication date: Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz, and Bleeding Earth by Kaitlin Ward. I'm sad to say that Bleeding Earth was kind of a disappointment, but Not Otherwise Specified was excellent and you guys should all grab a copy when it comes out in March!

Things that happened in January
I started watching Kuroko no Basket last month, and I finally caught up at the beginning of this month just before Season 3 began. SEASON 2 WAS AMAZING AND I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT. I'm now happily following Season 3! I haven't found myself so utterly engrossed in an anime in quite a while.
I went and watched the Lion King musical in London! IT WAS AWESOME. I loved the costumes and the set design so much.
I'm rewatching Avatar: The Last Airbender with my boyfriend (he's watching it for the first time) AND I LOVE IT MORE THAN EVER. IT'S SERIOUSLY STILL THE BEST.
