Oh February, where did you go? Time seems to flex between slow motion and supersonic speed these days, with my entire life revolving around a tiny person and his ever changing routines. Some days seem to last forever… and others go by in the blink of an eye. And when the end of the month comes into view, I wonder, what have I actually done this month?
This month, I completed six books, one of which was an audiobook reread of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire that I started back in November! As much as I love a good audiobook, I don’t think that format is working for me right now. Short form listening is the best I can do these days. But I did like all of the books I read and found a new favorite!
Ready to see the wrap up?
Books I reviewed:
I devoured You Are Not Alone! This author duo is officially on my auto-read list.
Books I read but didn’t review:
I finally finished listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on audiobook – and loved it, as always!

On the stack for next month:
For March I have a handful of review copies I’m looking forward to picking up. My read of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader took longer than originally anticipated, so I’ll be picking up The Silver Chair this month. And after seeing so many other reviewers love Invisible Women, I put it on my holds list and it should be coming available soon. I can’t wait to read this one for myself!
What are you reading or planning on reading next?
