Month in Review: February 2021


This month both flew by and felt long...which is crazy, I know. But that's just how it is. Anyway, somehow, I managed to have a fantastic reading month, though it was rather heavy on the review books. If this month is anything to go by, this year is going to be another amazing year for books. I read some fantastic books and I know just by looking at what I have on my shelf for March that I'm in for some good reading this coming month. I didn't get in as many backlist books as I would have liked, but I did get in 2, so it wasn't a total fail. I've been doing a bunch of buddy reads and I love doing that...knowing there is going to be a chat at the end of the book really enhances the whole experience. I think I'm signed up for four or five this month already and it's only March 1st!
