February Rewind & Wrap-Up!

So, we've come to the end of another month (err, over a week ago...), which means it's time to take a look back, see what was read and discussed and loved, and bring it to a close!
I may not have read much in February, but what I read, I enjoyed (so yay!); take a look at the Rewind below for my thoughts on all dat, check out more about my month even more below, and let me know what you think in the comments!
In Books

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFeversliveshow

Beastkeeper  by Cat Hellisen (still reading!)

On the Blog

I mostly stuck to my schedule this month, though I slacked a little compared to January, when I was really going gung-ho on my little schedule notebook. But I was bad about linking things up and tweeting them out this month, so in case you missed anything, some of my favorites of the month were:
  1. when I revealed that I love prickly characters and really hopeless, desperate situations in this blog tour
  2. when I revealed one of the weird things that freak me out to the point of UGHshuddersquiggleBLERGH
  3. when I revealed this cover (I promise I'll stop "revealing" things now, jeez.)
  4. when I revealed the banner for this year's Fairy Tale Fortnight, and invited you guys to participate. (I lied, I'm still revealing things. But also, we're still taking guest posters, so please join us!!)
  5. I also tried to set you up on a blind date, which if you haven't gone to meet your bookish match yet, you should totally do
  6. And though I was going to limit this to 5 things you may have missed, I was also part of some other awesome blog tours, where I talked about things like winner's curses, troll boys and Greek gods, and they were all for awesome things, so I think you should check them out.

In Life

You may have already checked out my month in my February vlog, but in case you missed it, some highlights were:

  • A puppy visitor, small enough to be able to walk under my dog (I may have died from cute).
  • A bit of a snowpocalypse, but for some reason, us weird Michiganders were loving it.
  • So. Many. Visits. from UPS.
  • Bed head!
If you missed it and those things appeal to you, a) what is wrong with you? and b) you can watch it here.

On the visual media front, I'm completely current now with Hart of Dixie, which I just started watching in January and have torn through -- and now it looks like it will probably be cancelled. =/

I also started watching KathleenLights on youtube, and though I'm apparently late to the game, judging by her subscriber count, I'm glad to have found her, because she's warm and funny, and had a thing called Lip Swatch Week...and y'all know I love me some lipstick.

Also, I can never get enough of TableTop, and 1 episode/wk is not enough for me, so I've been rewatching old favorites while I get ready for the day. But this recent one from the end of the month was awesome, and has a face fans of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries will recognize. =)

And lastly on the "visual" front, I can't. stop. watercoloring! I've always enjoyed it, but lately, I'm a woman obsessed!

On the music front, not a lot of new stuff, I'm listening to basically the same playlist I was listening to last month, with very few changes, but these few songs have been on repeat...

And that was pretty much it for my month! How did February treat you guys? Chat with me in the comments, let me know what you think of my month, and what all went on with you! =)


  1. I have added the Olympians to my wish list. I still need to read Dark Assassin and start Tin Star. Those look fab. I'm hit or miss on the fairytales, but I look forward to seeing what you have going for your blog event.
