Month in Review: February 2019

I can't believe February is already over, but alas, here we are. It's been a surprisingly full month despite how short it's been. There's been some difficult times for my family this month, but I also have some super exciting family-related news that I want to share, but it's still being kept private for now so I'm doing my best to keep my mouth shut for now. Hopefully soon!

In reading news, I had a surprisingly good month of reading for it being so short. I read a new all-time favorite book (The Wolf in the Whale) as well as a stunning five star read called Vita Nostra that blew my mind. If you like fantasy that gets a bit... complex, then you need to check this book out. I hope to have a review up sometime in March. How was your reading month!?

Lastly, I'm also happy to announce that I am now an IndieBound affiliate as well! This is pretty much the same sort of deal as my Amazon/Book Depository affiliate linking, so I'll now include an 'IndieBound' link for books on posts as well, which you may or may not have already noticed I'm doing. I only just realized IndieBound had an affiliate program and jumped right at it because supporting indie bookstores is so important and I know a lot of readers/authors/publishers appreciate having that extra option to bypass Amazon.

  1. I feel like I have a copy of Vita Nostra, I need to dig around on my shelves and find it. I'm dying to read it now!

  2. I actually read a surprisingly high number of books in February, too!

  3. I have so many of these books on my TBR but haven't gotten to them yet. I will definitely try to pick some of them up soon based on your ratings and reviews! I can't wait to see what you read and review in March!

  4. Wow, lots of 4 and 5 star reads! Looks like you had a great reading month overall. :)

  5. I snagged Early Riser by Jasper Fforde as my BOTM. I can't wait to dive in!
