January 2017: This Month in Review

You may have noticed I haven’t been posting on my blog that often, but that doesn’t mean I’m not writing about books! In fact, I’m writing more than ever as such outlets as Paste Magazine, Bustle, Tor.com, and Book Riot. If you want to check out what I’m writing, you can at the links below. I also share all my writing on my Facebook page, Swapna Krishna.
