February Wrap Up and Currently Reading

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great February and an amazing weekend this weekend. This month was pretty busy so I'm doing a monthly wrap up instead of my normal weekly update today to catch up!

I thought I wanted to read less this year, but I think what I really wanted was to just find a better balance. I feel like I'm taking a lot more time to do non-reading things this year so I'm happy about that. I'm also trying to give in to mood reading more than I have in the last year or two.

Posted Since My Last Update

  1. Yes I am in a MOOD too. I always like mystery/thrillers and I'm in a full out binge these days. I am managing to read other stuff but like you say, I am doing a lot less challenges and trying to read more of what I just want to read.

    Have a wonderful week and enjoy your new reads!

  2. I set a weekly TBR, but I have slotted in other books, when my mood called for it. I tend to enjoy the book more, when it fits my needs at that moment in time. Good for you for giving into the mood. You had a pretty decent reading month, and that Total Olympics book sounds fabulous

  3. I'm totally a mood reader and sometimes it wreaks havoc with my reading "plans" (such as they are ha) but I have a hard time if I'm not in the mood for a certain book.

    You Are Not Alone looks like something I'd like. I've been reading all the thrillers lately lol. Have a super week!

  7. You did great in February. The stomach flu has sort of sidelined my wrap up but I hope to get it done today so I can get it up Thursday. Also, a great variety of genres - how fun!
