Am I the only one that really dislikes that February is such a short and weird month? I find it really annoying for some reason that it can't just extend even two more days to be like the rest of the months, but alas, I understand these things are not about our preferences... (although it'd certainly be nice if they were!). How was your February?? I don't feel as though I have all that much to report, which I guess is technically a good thing these days. Outside of my own life, of course, we have some very intense, difficult things going on, which has been really horrible and I'm doing what I can to show my support.
In dog news, River is doing great! His coast suddenly stopped shedding so intensely and it suddenly feels so much softer and fuller–we're hoping that's a good sign that he is getting healthier. Today, when this post goes up, we will be taking him to get his first heart worm injection of melarsomine at 8:30AM and I am ridiculously nervous about it. I know things are more than likely going to be just fine, but it still sure is nerve-racking! And thus begins two months (8 weeks) of strict bed rest, which means we will unfortunately be giving him a mild sedative for those 8 weeks because we (including our vet) just don't think he'll be able to stay calm without it. I feel pretty bad about that as well, but it's so crucial to keep his heart rate down that I know it's the best option for his health.
But enough about my dog! Let's talk about books. :) This month I've decided to try to add a little bit of commentary about each book I read, so you can find that below with the list of books I read this past month if you're interested in my thoughts on what I read! :) Reviews for The City of Dusk, Sundial, Wild and Wicked Things, and The Great Witch of Brittany should be up in March.
