Wrapping Up February 2021

What a wild month February has been! For me, most of it was spent at home, staying warm and watching the snow. A few good books came my way, too. Read on for the details!

Books Completed This Month

Together, Apart

πŸ“• Together, Apart by Various Authors; YA Contemporary Fiction, Clean Romance; ⭐⭐

There was too much overlap in these stories. I expected more variety, since so many authors were involved, but it felt like I kept just reading the exact same short story over and over again.

πŸ“• Tune It Out by Jamie Sumner; Middle Grade Contemporary Fiction; ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Tune It Out

I love this book! It deserves a glowing review but I am not sure when my schedule will let me write something as detailed as I would like.

🎧 The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee; Middle Grade Mystery; ⭐⭐⭐

Average Rating: 3.33⭐s

Other Highlights

  • We got so much snow! It was beautiful and a little stressful; my work ended up being closed for almost two weeks.
  • lots of time to play uke and guitar because of said snow
  • Lowkey redecorated my apartment for Spring
  • Music I’ve had on repeat: Chillhop study playlist & YouTube channel
  • Movies watched: two episodes of the Pride & Prejudice miniseries (1995) ⭐⭐⭐.5; Aurora Teagarden: Real Murders (2015) ⭐⭐⭐.5;

I’m not sure how I had almost two weeks off from work and only managed to complete three books, but I’m going to blame it on homework. I also spent a lot of my time off learning a few new songs on ukulele.

How was February for you, Reader? Did you experience crazy weather, and were you able to read much?

Until the next chapter,

Jana

  1. It seems you have been pretty busy, books finished don’t reflect it, that’s all. I have had a good reading month, and I may finish one more this weekend- review will follow next week. Have a good weekend.

    1. You’re right, there are a lot of ways to measure productivity; usually what I’ve read seems like a fair indication for me, but not this month. Enjoy your weekend & reading!

  2. It sounds like you had a lot to keep you and your mind occupied besides just reading and that is good too. Normally I am in Florida during January, February and the first half of March, so I am not used to the snow and cold. We had almost 2 feet of snow two weeks ago and this week it has been above freezing all week and it is almost melted. I love the sun and being able to get ouside.
