A new year is finally upon us. I am a naturally hopeful person, so I am fervently hoping and praying that 2021 is much kinder to us than last year was. We all deserve a nice reprieve and a step back into our life before the chaos. January’s future log is a very simple on this time around, as I am taking a bit of a rest on challenges since December was chalk full of them.
Unfortunately, my mental health has not been the greatest for the last several weeks, so I have been trying to make a conscious effort to minimize stress and maximize self care. Due to this, I’m going easy on myself and not requesting ARCs or setting a posting schedule like I usually do at the beginning of each month. If I post, I post; if I don’t–well there is always the next day!
On the upside of things though, I am super excited to mention that I have picked back writing again. Its been a super slow process but I am kind of loving the slow cooker-esque feel of it all as it makes the whole process feel more fun and thrilling. These characters I have cooked up in my head are probably the most entertaining thing in my life since the days when my beloved Ayse was the main writer of Sen Cal Kapimi (a moment of silence for what could have been).
When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn
A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one’s life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London’s most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.
After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca’s surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer—the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.
But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .

This hasn’t changed much since my last update–I’ve just been watching my usual Turkish programs–Sen Çal Kapımı, Doğduğun Ev Kaderindir, Zümrüdüanka–as well as my Nat Geo WILD shows, specifically Secrets of the Zoo.

My TBW is the same as last months as I didn’t watch anything on my TBW in December (very typical of me). So the goal remains–to either finish one of these or to just simply start it. I am adding two other shows to this months TBW as one of them is a season 2 premiere so I can watch those weekly as its released and the other is a recommendation from some dear friends of mine! Fingers crossed I will finally get to these!
