FEBRUARY RECAP // i hosted a readathon & binged a show… who am i??

Okay, now it’s the time to ask where the year has gone? How is it even February?!?!

I didn’t read as much as I could have but I have a reason…
Anyways, let’s get into it.
Monthly Recap - wrap up

  • The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo {★★★★☆}: I read this for a readathon I hosted at the beginning of February and I read it in a mere few hours. I loved it from the very first page. It’s such a stunning novel, so empowering and amazing. I just loved it and definitely going to read anything else Elizabeth publishes! The only reason Click here for my Goodreads review.
  • A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews {★★★★½}: I also read this for my readathon and absolutely adored it. Don’t even ask me why I only got to it now even though I had an ARC and everything, it was clearly a mistake since it was so good. I loved the writing and the characters and just everything. Just wow what a stunning novel as well. Ahhh also super excited for more of Cait’s books. Click here for my Goodreads review!
  • The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee {★★★★☆}: Again we’re going to ignore the fact that it took me forever to read this book. I just recently finished this one since it was the Topping The TBR pick for February and I had a grand old time. It was super funny (as promised) and such a fun novel. I loved, well most of, the characters and the writing and the tour aspect. I was a bit underwhelmed with the actual plot and some of the characters irritated me which is what lowered my rating a bit, but I loved it all the same. Click here for my review.

Monthly Recap - Online Stuff

  • I had the absolute best time at the Pan MacMillan 2019 Highlights presentation. We got some awesome books and I saw some of my friends, it was so great. I got that ARC I just mentioned and somehow managed to snag a copy King Of Scars in hardcover (!!) by Leigh Bardugo.
  • And I hosted what I call the Short-Book-A-Thon which I hosted over the first weekend of February. The aim was to read some of the short books that have been sitting on your TBR. I didn’t read all that I wanted but I did finish two books and about a third through another one. I had a blast (the third day wasn’t fun) hosting it and definitely want to do a more in the future, hopefully soon since you guys seemed to like it. I loved that some of my friends joined, it was so much fun!!
  • Okay, actually nothing else happened because I lowkey disappeared for like 3 weeks…
  • But the Bargain Books Warehouse Sale is happening this month and I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED. For those who didn’t know, it’s an awesome sale and I’ve been given early access. There’s such a great selection of titles and I get to see my friends and I CANNOT WAIT. Check out their website here for more.

Monthly Recap - Movies & TV Shows
Okay, the real reason I disappeared and went totally MIA…
I may or may not have watched a whole bunch of One Tree Hill
Yeah, I know. I watched A TON. I was honestly and truly obsessed. It has been a while since I watched that much TV. Which is why I’m excusing myself. You want to know how far I got, let’s just say I stopped at the season where two of the leads have their last episode. It was a time. I was hardcore shipping a certain couple which is the main reason I didn’t stop. But also it has a brilliant soundtrack. Most of the music I’ve been listening too is from the 2000s and its great.
