February Wrap Up

Another month and though it was a short one I once again continue my reading funk. I didn’t read that many but I did however love all those I did. I don’t know if it’s the weather or just me. Don’t get me wrong I shouldn’t really complain we are lucky here in South Texas no icy weather just rain but I’m sick of it! I should be grateful at least it’s not bad compare to the people up North it sucks regardless. However summer will soon be here and so will the heat that kills us so I’m at least happy its not HOT…yet. Anyways this month has been an AWESOME book month for me. I don’t know how but I was lucky enough to receive so many great books plus I won a few contests also! So here’s what I got this month.

That was my month how was yours? Please link me up to yours I love seeing all the bookish things people get!


  1. Wow. You have enough books to last for a bit, right? So, you're in Texas too. I'm in Central Texas, near Austin. And I'm ready for the bluebonnets and other wildflowers. Not so much for the 100+ degree temps, but that's OK too.

    1. I know right? lol Yes I'm in Houston it's good to see a fellow Texan, you totally feel my pain when it comes to that Texas heat oh and the bluebonnets are really amazing!

  2. Wow - you've got a ton of new books! My Sunshine Away is my favorite book of the year so far - gorgeous writing and late 80's/early 90's nostalgia. I also have Bones & All and Where They Found Her waiting for me! Looking forward to them both.

    1. I want to read it soon as soon as my mom gives it back lol

  3. Hey Monica, I just found your blog, and it was fun to see my book, Penny & Jelly featured on your bookshelf. Thank you!


    1. Aww thanks! I'm posting a review next week.
