While January seemed to last forever, February seemed to pass in a blur. I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t get through my entire TBR pile, but this is no surprise, as I always tend to stray due to mood reads. Between work being crazy busy, illness, and travel, my reading time was decreased this month. Despite all of the distractions, I managed to read 7 books, which isn’t bad.
I have to say, the highlight of my month was the opportunity to beta read again. I had the privilege of reading two novellas early on, and I can’t wait to write a proper review for the release of those books.
In March, I’ll be hosting my first book challenge on Instagram. It’s a 60s/70s classic rock-theme, and I’ll be joined by a couple other music lovers as co-hosts. There will be weekly book giveaways for those who participate. I’m excited for this, and hope that a lot of readers will join in!
You can see my monthly wrap-up on the chart below. Stay tuned for my March “TBR Talk” post tomorrow!
