February Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

Can I just say that for the shortest month of the year, I had a damn good reading month. Like I am starting 2017 on a roll, y’all!

Now watch me go into a huge reading slump because I just jinxed myself…Way to go, Larkin.

All in all, I think February turned out to be a pretty darn good reading month. I’m really looking forward to March as well. I’ve got quite a good mix of reads for this upcoming month, so things should get pretty interesting! 🙂

How did your February go? Did you get a lot of reading done? Which book was your favorite read? What about your least favorite read?

  1. What a fantastic reading month!! I hope you haven’t jinxed yourself! I’ve decided instead of setting a monthly “I’m going to read X books” I’ve changed it to I’m going to START X books. I never can seem to reach the last one!

    1. Thank you! And I hope I haven’t either 🙊.. I do plan on switching up genres a bit and stuff for March so hopefully that will help. And that’s a great idea! I typically don’t plan ahead on my TBRs and just read whatever I want unless I have a specific book for book club or something. It makes it so much easier that way!


  2. You read so many books I still need to read!! Like Truthwitch, Caraval, Revenge of the Wild… I need those books in my life!
