Monthly Wrap-Up: February, What Are Books?

→ Wanna hear something awesome? My husband got sick 2 weeks ago. Then I got sick. Then we both got better. Now I’m sick again……..so yeah, that’s been the past 2 weeks for me. It’s a ton of fun.

→ On a happier note, we didn’t just sit inside the entire time. There was a short period of time (like 2 days) neither of us was sick! Me, my husband, and his friend went to the Circa Survive show in San Diego for his birthday (which was last month). We also got the VIP package so we were able to go to/see a pre-show Q&A and acoustics. Here are a few pictures of the VIP stuff (these were professionally taken by the event runners, not me):

→ Also, I chose THREE reps to add to the team for the store! There is now the lovely L (@thelovelyshelf), Rachel (@beautyandthebookshelf), Sam (@_sklevy), Ali (the_bandar_blog), and Morgan (@flickofapage). The links lead to their AMAZING Instagram accounts. Show some love to these lovely ladies  😀

UGH I JUST HATE MYSELF. ONE BOOK. ONE LOUSY BOOK. And I finished it on the THIRD of the month. I’ve read FIVE books this year so far and two of them were short stories. I don’t even know what to do with myself anymore. I just skldfjlskdjflskjdflksjdfls

And the only good thing that came out of this one was that it was my first audiobook I’ve ever finished.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – 🌟 / 5

Honestly, I don’t know. I have posts planned but I’m not happy with many of the topics. So, I may be mixing it up depending on my mood. Or I may take a mini break just this week to try to catch up with my reading so I can actually use NEW books in tags & rec lists >.< So, just stay tuned.


How was your February? What books did you read?
Tv shows did you watch? Movies did you see?

Are any of you watching the Oscars tonight?

  • I believe in you, Molly! You can totally kick ass on your reading challenge! 😄 I feel like I failed at my reading this month, but I’ll probably finish out with 10 books, which isn’t terrible, just meh.

    Ugh, I don’t remember all the movies I watched this month, but the stand-out for me was this comedy called The Edge of Seventeen. SO GOOD. This teenager really enjoyed it and I highly recommend!

    I didn’t watch much TV either. I watched Riverdale, and I ended up hating it and finding it stupid and overrated. So, I’m skipping on that. 😬 I really wanted to watch Legion, but I never found the time. UGH.

    But, yeah, that was my month. 😂

    • hehehe thank you! I’m trying! I picked up Crooked Kingdom. It’s a long one but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Six of Crows so I’m hoping CK will help me out of the slump I’ve been in.

      I’ve never heard of that movie! I’ll have to check it out 🙂 I love a good coming-of-age story!

      Eeep. I hadn’t even heard of Riverdale until it came out and I’ve seen SO MANY people complain about it. I’ll probably skip that one. I still haven’t seen a trailer for it either.

      I hope you have a good March!

  • I hope you feel better!! Glad you guys did get out in between sicknesses. Sorry you didn’t like Me Before You 🙁 Have a great week!

    • I do! Thank you! I hope you have a great week as well 🙂

  • LOL @ your caption. I’m sorry you only got one book read, and that you hated it – that is a bummer. I hope you are able to get more reading done next month (or TV-watching or relaxing or whatever it is you want to accomplish!). I hope you’re feeling better now!

    • HAHA it was the truth! I apparently didn’t know what books were in February. I hope March is better in terms of reading, thank you! 🙂

  • Ugh it sucks so much to be sick 🙁 and to only have been able to read one book. And loool. I never read Me Before You but I saw the movie, and as movies go it was okay, but books make feel emotionally involved so good thing I didn’t read it or I would have hurled it out a window. But I’m sure it’ll be better next month! Great books are being released!

    • ughhhh it really does. I’m trying this month though. I finally finished a book (but 90% of it was read during February) and am starting Crooked Kingdom. So, hopefully this month stays good in terms of reading 🙂 hahah I will probably still watch the movie even though I didn’t like the book. I may feel differently about that one.

  • I really hope you’ll feel better soon! And I’m sorry to hear you didn’t love Me Before You, hope your next reads will be much, much better! Have a lovely month! 😀

    • Thank you so much! I just started Crooked Kingdom so I’m hoping this one is as good as the first 🙂

  • Ugh, getting sick is the worst, and this winter seems to have been a real doozy! I haven’t been reading a ton this month either – it’s hard to read when you’re brain is in a sick fog! Ugh, here’s hoping for a better time in March!!

    • RIGHT?! I wish that it was easy to read when you’re sick. It’s the perfect time! but our brains are just like “nope, you can’t do this right now” haha bummer. But thank you! 🙂

  • My husband and I have the same problem with getting sick. Usually I get a light cold, then he gets a blown-out illness, then I get sick from his sickness. It’s all a mess. Congrats on finding your reps!

    • hahah yeah, that’s us too. The sickness always bounced around lol

  • Feel better, Molly.

    Sorry you didn’t enjoy your book. That’s NEVER fun. Hopefully March will be a happier month. 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 & yes, it isn’t fun when you don’t like the ONE book you read hahaha but yes, hopefully March will be better! 🙂

  • I’m so sorry to hear that you had a houseful of sicknes. Yuck! Here’s to a healthier March!!

    • YES! Thank you! So far it’s been better. I just have this annoying sore throat that refuses to go away lol

  • Greg Hill

    Ugh sickness there’s been so much going around. Everyone I know’s been sick. I read a lot less in Feb than I did in January, Watched more TV though, mainly The 100 and Big Little Lies.

    Have a good weekend.

    • I haven’t watched the new The 100 season yet! But I did start Big Little Lies, I’m enjoying it thus far.

  • Emily

    Nooooo being sick sucks. I am lucky in that I very, very rarely do (and actually in my 3+ years of working have never had to call in sick). The Australian air, maybe? :’)

    Also, like, I hated Me Before You as well. That ending was sooooo infuriating and it didn’t make me sad, it made me angry. Although I have to say I loved Louisa HAHA.

    • haha maybe. LA air probably isn’t that great for me 😉

      Yes! Ok, I was spoiled on the ending before I read it, but I was still -___- when I did. But nope, I hate Louisa sorry lol
