February Wrap-up


February is the Loki of months. The end of it creeps up on you. You're thinking you have plenty of time until your March hand-in, and then your brain catches up with the world and remembers that February ends two days too early.

News from the Reading Front

I finished five books this month -

A Scandal in Bohemia by Arthur Conan Doyle

Fantomina by Eliza Haywood

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

And two comic compilations.

Reading Challenge Check-in

Short stories don't count for most of the challenges I've taken so, since Fantomina and A Scandal in Bohemia are both short stories, I haven't made a lot of progress this month.

News from the Blogging Front

You may have noticed that there haven't been a lot of posts this month. That's because I'm in my final term of uni and I have a lot of coursework and a lot of reading to do. Between now and May, it's likely there'll only be a few posts a week. This could go on longer too, depending on what happens after that.

  2. *hands up* when I see all these 'wrap up' posts on my blogger reading list, I just realized that February is ended. I feel more than betrayed.. I feel like someone has stabbed me like Arya Stark stabbed Meryn Trant. It hurt. And all the best to you!

    1. Once they moved the Blogger reading list off the home page, I stopped using it. And it used to be such a good way for me to keep track of everyone's posts too...

    1. Most of them were for uni. I study lit so a lot of my reading is actually for class.
      Have a great March!

  6. Eeep I can't believe February went by so fast! I had very similar numbers this month in terms of reading - finishing 6 books. I was pretty happy with my month of reading all things considered!
