Monthly Rewind ~ January

Posted February 1, 2016 by Michelle in Monthly Rewind / 8 Comments


What ‘s been happening this month

My blog blew up! Yes, my hosting company had a DDOS Attack and it pretty much knocked all blogs down on their servers. So the last 3 weeks I have been dealing with spotty blogging and barely any posts. I pretty much was so stressed out I bailed out on everything from life to blogging to organizing. I have a lot of catching up to do. I also apologize for not visiting as much, things have been a little crazy around here also so I am hoping this coming month will bring more time to visit, now I just need to organize everything to relieve some of the stress.

What to expect in February…

February is the month of love and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day because I just never liked it and thankfully my husband isn’t a fan either so we don’t really do anything for that day but hang with the kids. This month on the blog I have a bunch of friends writing up some really awesome guest posts for Bookish Couple and the Book guest post. I am so excited about it and can’t wait to share. Every since I did Monster and a Book I have fallen in love with Guest Post with fellow bloggers. The new on based on Genre and a couple from a book that the blogger loved. If anyone is interested in doing a Guest Post like this with me send me an email and the next one I have I will send you an invite for it.

I have been lacking on original content but with the new Fun Facts Friday and another Post that I came up with for Wednesday I should be back in the content game soon. One thing I am always nervous about is writing my opinion on something but I plan to do a few Just a Random Post this month also. So I have a lot to get done but I am so happy to be back into blogging again now that my blog is up and running again.

Books I reviewed this month

My Favorite Book this month

This was very hard to pick but I will go with…


I am going with this book because it is one of my favorite series and starting this book made me realize how much I missed these characters. It had all the action, adventure and super scary moments like the other two books and I can’t wait for book 4. This will be one series I will be sad when it ends.


How did you do this month?

Have a Great Day and Happy Reading Name2014

  1. I’m so sorry that the thing with the server attacks went on so long. It must be incredibly frustrating! Hopefully it all settles down soon and things get back to normal. Even with that, it looks like you got a fair number of posts done!

  2. Yuck on the server attacks! I had noticed something was up but I’m glad everything seems to have settled down. I’m reading the first Lockwood & Co and really enjoying it. It took me awhile to get going but once I got into the story I’m really liking it. I’m glad to hear the series stays strong.
