February // Birthdays, early screenings & the dreaded reading slump

feb

Where January proved to be the longest month in existence, February flashed by quicker than a blink (as I’m sure everyone has determined by now).

Honestly, it’s kind of a struggle thinking back over what happened this month, since it went by so quickly I barely had time to think.

February has been and almost gone, and for once this month felt like it lasted ages. Normally the months flash by without a pause, but looking back today and seeing which books I read, it actually seems like a lifetime ago when I read the books at the beginning of the month.

Anyway, as usual with these wrap ups, I’ll be sharing the books I’ve read, what I’m currently reading, a list of posts uploaded this month, and a life in general updates section.

This is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!
