I’m am so ready to say goodbye to winter and hello to Spring, but unfortunately Kentucky just remembered that it was, in fact, wintertime- and gave us an overdose of rain, cold, and dreary weather.
However, that does make for plenty of reading time, and I kept a steady pace reading for not only this month, but next month as well. Keeping to my goal, I shared eight reviews this month:
- The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy
- We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter
- The Snowman by Jo Nesbo
- Feminine Rising by Andrea Fekete & Laura Lillibridge
- The Antidote For Everything by Kimmery Martin
- Tomorrow’s Woman by Greta Bellamacina
- The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
- Diary of a Beatlemaniac by Patricia Gallo-Stenman
Overall, this month was a series of reading highs and lows, but I definitely read outside my comfort zone and diversified the style of books I was reading.
In case you missed them, I also talked put the spotlight on a one of my favorite authors, Jodi Picoult; dished about my most anticipated reads of 2020; shared about the Hill Women with Cassie Chambers book signing event; and recapped the Divergent series. Additionally, I did some more crowd sourcing for the Blogger Spotlight, where I found great posts about Blogging 101 and everything NetGalley. Then, I dished out my own advice on social media and book discussion podcasts!
I really have enjoyed adding these extras to the blog, and I hope you are enjoying them too!
I did get up to a few fun things this month as well. The first, a Bookstagrammers meet-up in Cincinnati, where we enjoyed brunch, drinks, and book chatter, and then hit up a local library booksale at The Friends’ Used Book Store at the Warehouse. Although the weather and illness kept the number low, our book hauls were worth the trip!
Additionally, I toodled into town on February 25th to meet Kimmery Martin at The Antidote For Everything book signing at The Carnegie Center. I was really excited to meet the local author and learn more ‘behind the scenes” information about her latest novel. I’ll be sharing more about the event in the upcoming month!
That sums up my literary fun for February, and I can’t wait to hear all your thoughts about what I have in store for March!
