In February I read nine books. Break the Bodied, Haunt the Bones by Micah Dean Hicks and The English Wife by Lauren Willig were my favorites. Cujo was my least favorite. I loved the poor dog, hated the people 🐶

My #FebruaryReads consisted of 7 titles. Confederacy was full audio audiobook. Falcon was read and listened to simultaneously. The rest were combination of ebook and print. My favorite was probably The President's Shadow, and my least favorite The Maltese Falcon.

#FebruaryStats #2019RoundUp

Nowhere near as many books as in January however I loved a lot more of these. I especially loved listening to The Order of the Phoenix. Jim Dale did an excellent job narrating. I unfortunately felt nothing for the characters in Nothing Personal. And decided to move on to greener pastures.

I hope you had a fabulous February. What were some of your favorite reads?

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You did great! 📚💖 8mo

Happy February! Did you know, before the current Julian calendar was used February was the only month that had an even number of days. I read that somewhere a while back. Just another reason to read more. You learn lots of useful (unuseful) things!💜📖

According to my #bulletjournal 2018 has been a great year for books so far! I've racked up 7 for my #ReadHarder challenge, 3 for my #Booked2018 challenge, and just 1 for #LitWorld2018GB (but that will change). Bring me more books!! 📚

I have a tiny bit of a reading slump mid-February, which has resulted in several books started and stopped. I‘m better now and plan to finish the titles, as some are for challenges. But, I did not complete as many in February as I had hoped. If February only had a few more days...

MuddyPuddle Slumps are tough. I encountered one in February, too. 2y
Librarybelle @MuddyPuddle They‘re definitely not fun. I‘m grateful mine only lasted a couple weeks. 2y
C.Perone I‘ve been in a bit of a slump myself, not reading as much as usual; thankfully books just keeping hanging out, there for us when we‘re ready for them😊📚 2y
Librarybelle @C.Perone I love that thought...yes, they do wait for us! ❤️ 2y

I was in a reading rut for most of February, so I'm kind of surprised that I even got six books read. Surprisingly I didn't read any romance books for the month of February, although I sorta intended to...oh well. 😂

Jess7 Ohhh that‘s pretty good! #ReadingResolutions | How did you like this one - it‘s on my TBR 2y
KrystleTheBookSlayer @Jess7 I thought it was good, it gave a really good look at life in N. Korea, although it's definitely not a happy read. 2y
Jess7 Good to know!! 2y
