February | Wrap Up

January felt like the longest month in the history of months, so it was only really inevitable that February would feel like the shortest (I know, it actually is the shortest month, but it felt like it too, y’know?) I did a lot, my friends visited for the first few days, a period that crossed with my twin brother’s birthdays. My parents were away so I took my Gran out a few times and generally kept myself busier than I usually would during a working week. I also worked some of the weekends and feel like I didn’t have much time off at the beginning of the month. The end of the month was filled with Physics talks and football dramas and blitz tidying my bedroom. Yes, you could say it has been a productive month overall, I’d believe you, but that feels like it has come at a reading cost.

The eagle eyed among you may realise that I didn’t post a wrap for January. So, I may have forgotten. I am planning to throw it out there in the coming days, because late is better than never!

In February, I read 3 books, which is 1375 pages, and all of which were new reads to me.

I read fiction books and 1 non-ficion book, a mix of YA Fantasy, Memoir and Contemporary Romance

By Format, I read 1 Audiobook, 1 Paperback and 1 Hardback.

The average rating was 4.67/5 Stars for all of the books that I read in February.

I’ve read some great books this month, but the ‘Book of the Month’ for February is…

Born to Run Bruce Springsteen

I don’t want to say that this month has been a disappointing reading month because I have been tackling some longer reads that will definitely make next month look more impressive, but I still have a sense of feeling that I didn’t read that much this month. I feel like it’s been a busy one. My parents were away for a bit of it, and I have had friends over for the weekend, taken my Gran out, been to a physics talk. What can I say? February was busy and short which makes me feel like I didn’t read enough. I am still ahead of my reading target for the year and enjoyed what I read this month a lot, so I guess there is that right? I’m also a little bit more caught up on reviews…not that you would know that from this post though because I haven’t quite got round to reviewing these books…yet!

I’m ready for a book filled March, are you? 

How has your February gone? What did you read?

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
