An Innocent Life #23: February Recap


I feel like this month just came and went so quickly, yet at the same time I AM TIRED. This year is just going by, and I am not ready haha.

This month I haven't been reading as much as I wanted to, but it's still more than 2017. This month I read 13 books instead of the usual 6 or 7 I used to average. I'm only a bit bummed that Holly is winning our little, friendly competition, BUT I always catch up and get ahead during the week. So I'll be ahead before you know it.

Prim looks so fucking thrilled.



Books Read This Month

Best Book: Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
Worst Book: Speak of Me As I Am by Sonia Belasco



This month I only got to three sequels, but I finished one duology, and then another...series? I don't know whether to count companion novels as series, OR if there will be more companion novels in the future, but anyways I'll just say that happened.

Just last Sunday I attended my first ever book club meeting for The Handmaid's Tale, and it was a lot of fun! Unfortunately the next book is not something I'm interested in at all (The Giver, like ugh, didn't we all read this in middle school?), and so I probably won't be participating.

On the other hand I did just spend $40 on all the Saga comics. Except Volume 4 and 5. I'll buy those some day. ALSO during book club, I discovered there is this bookstore that sells all their used books for $1. How cool is that???

I did spend a lot of time just...working in February, and being tired and drinking 5 cups of coffee. BUT MARCH IS COMING UP AND I'M GOING TO BE SO BUSY.


How was your February?
