That's a Wrap | February Edition

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful February! My newborn has now started sleeping through the night so I feel like I'm starting to join the land of the living. Thank goodness because I only have one more week in my maternity leave then it's back to the grind.

I've been seeing more and more of these monthly wrap ups around the blogosphere, and I realized how much I love them because I can catch books or reviews I may have missed. I also think it is a good motivator to see everything spelled out. I'm truly amazed at how many books some bloggers can read in a month. As much as I would love to have an impressive wrap up post, that will never be me. But! I think it will be fun to share a monthly update just the same.

I'm very pleased with my February reading. I try to maintain a goal of about a book a week and according to Goodreads I am 5 books ahead of schedule. I'll take it! One of those books is kind of cheating because Goodreads is counting The Chicken Thief, but the way I see it, that book owes me something.

  1. You may think Chicken Thief is cheating in the strictest sense but since Game of Thrones is one of your books I think you're ok! Those monsters should count as 2-3 books each :)

  2. I love monthly wrap-ups too :) I was disappointed with a couple of books this month. I hate to abandon a book but there are so many great ones out there that I don't want to waste time. On the whole I had a fantastic month :)

    Here's to March!

    1. I've gotten much better at abandoning books. Otherwise I get stuck in one awful one forever. Thank goodness I have blogging to snap me out of those times and get me moving on to something else.

    1. Girl, you are so busy all of the time I imagine you were just productive in 12 other things! I hope March is great for you.

  4. Man - why even start the Game of Thrones right now. DON"T YOU KNOW? the last three books that were released had a 5 year, 6 year and 5 year intermin between each book being published. Now do you REALLY? want to do that to yourself?? I still buy the books but I'm boycotting reading them til that bastard is done writing them. Strong words I know haha.

    I agree I love wrap ups - maybe we'll have to do one.

    1. Gah! No, I didn't know. That's like waiting on another Scott Smith book to be published - which is totally worth it - but Game of Thrones maybe not... I guess it's good I'm taking my time with Game of Thrones then! By the time I'm done reading them, they may all be out! Ha!

  5. I really enjoyed The Rook. I thought it was a fantastic fantasy book. Oooh, Game of Thrones is so long, I can see why you haven't finished yet. haha.

    It looks like a great month and glad to hear you are joining the land of the living again! :)
