Between my birthday, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day and Purim, my February was preeetty busy. So maybe it’s no surprise that I hit a bit of a reading slump. 🤷🏻♀️ I wound up taking a whole week off reading from (and posting!), in fact.
Despite that, however, I still managed to have a great month! Even in the midst of Covid, my partner managed to make my birthday really special. 😍 After hearing me complain for the umpteenth time about how much I missed going out for ramen, she took it upon herself to make me some absolutely delicious homemade ramen – from scratch! Add on the fact that she ordered me a black forrest cake (my favorite flavour of cake!) from one of my favorite bakeries, it was a pretty awesome day. 🥰
(Check out the photos below of my delicious birthday meal!)
On the books front, even while taking a little break from reading, I still managed to complete some really fun bookish firsts. I wound up doing two separate buddy reads!! I read Legendborn by Tracy Deonn with Ali from In the Lost & Found and Crier’s War by Nina Varela with Mayu from Bookshelf Life – both of which were really fun and total 5 star reads! 🤩 I also participated in my very first readathon, F/F February! I’ll go into more detail on the books I read for that in my F/F February wrap-up post, but for now I’ll just say that I managed to read 5 books for it, and I enjoyed them all! ❤️
I managed to get through 9 books this month! I’m actually kind of surprised by that? February is a short month, I only read for 3/4s of it, and some of the books I read were really long! (Too be fair, a number of the books I read were also pretty short.)
I had such a fun time reading so many books for F/F February! 😍 In other news, I’m obsessed with Nina LaCour? Literally, I need to read everything she ever wrote. Like, now.
Next Month’s TBR:
So, I failed spectacularly at reading last month’s TBR… so now this month’s TBR is (more than a little) ridiculous… Wish me luck. 🙈
