My goals for #FabulousFebruary are:
Finish Sense and Sensibility
Finish Dime Store Magic
Keep up with 1619 Project, This Life, Rage Becomes Her, and A Truth Universally Acknowledged
Read On Juneteenth
Read The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor
January goals actually went really well - much better than I expected! I've been a little more ambitious with Feb (at least for me) so excited to keep going, @wanderinglynn
Here's my #bookspin and #doublespin for February..
I'm keeping my TBR short for the next month, I really want to read all of these books, so I'm hoping not to get distracted and stay focused on this list 🤞🏻
(On the positive side, it should be easier to get a Bingo!) @TheAromaofBooks
My final stats for #FabulousFebruary totally exceeded my goals of 4 books, 38hrs & many prompts. In the end I :
📚 Read 7 books
⏱ Read for 68hrs
# Ticked off a lot of prompts from many different challenges.
And I found a new fave author to boot! How was your #readathon?

11/14/18 won't be read this month since they have been chosen by my group members for Feb & March Romance challenge.
I'm a little late on this, thanks to being sick and packing to move, but 12 down for February. Lots of "meh" reading that month, which was disappointing given that I had been highly anticipating about half of them. Nothing wrong per se but nothing uber exciting. My faves definitely were Lowcountry Bombshell and The Fifth Avenue Artists Society. I'll do better at keeping up in March...I promise.
My February wrap up.
3 Graphic Novels/Comics: Killjoys, Hazel & ChaCha, and Snow, Glass, Apples (I am counting Hazel & ChaCha Save Christmas because I can.)
1 Romance: Roomies (seriously love everything Christina Lauren does)
1 YA Fiction: Eliza and Her Monsters
1 YA Fantasy: A Curse So Dark and Lonely (probably my favorite read of the month)
My February reading month : 26 books read and 9928 pages read.
I only managed to get through 7 books this month and 5 of them were audiobooks. A few good ones though. Really enjoyed So You Want to Talk About Race, In the Dream House, and Another Brooklyn. Not a fan of Elegance of the Hedgehog or We Have Always Lived in The Castle
YES! I finished it in last hours of Leap Day! 😂 Lol! I was sure this emotional ramble will drag to Mar. #MonthInTitle
Son calls mother with life-changing news, which sets them on respective paths of random reminiscing. Narration alternating between past & present lacked cohesion, imo.
Overthinking & random focus on vignettes of memory are no stranger to me but doesn't translate well as prose 😄
Sipping the Chianti to continue #LitsyPartyOfOne
#FebruaryFeels Day 1: This is what I hope to be my #FebTBR. Looking forward to catching up on the #ScreamsByMail title, if (and when) it reaches me (cross fingers), then #NYRBBookClub February pick, and my #ReadIntl2020 titles for our Year of International Literature - first quarter theme is FANTASY! These translated titles all fit the bill.
Trying to make sure I read more than I buy this year and for February I bought ZERO books!! 😱 I know I will buy some this month because I have a gift card. I‘m just happy that I am not going book crazy this early in the year!
Also @Litsy I am not a fan of the new way the focus feature works for pics. 😥 maybe I‘m not understanding yet! 🤷🏻♀️
Did quite well in February with keeping to my reading plan, read 14/18 I planned to read but read 10 that weren‘t on my original plan.
Books read: 9
Pages read: 3,506
Women authors: 9
POC authors: 5
Longest: The Kingdom of Gods - 600 pages
Shortest: The Bright Continent - 274 pages
I really don‘t know how I managed to read 24 books and 10,225 pages in February, well beyond last year (15 books 7586 pages). #FebruaryStats
February totals! I was really happy with what I got finished, even if I only did 8/10 #tbr books 📚
February was a good month for me—with a reading total of 40 books (3 print books, 7 ebooks, and 30 audiobooks). Some of my favorites were Strange the Dreamer, Children of Blood and Bone, and Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe.
Some of the books I read in February - in total I read 16; 8 hard copy and 8 Kindle.
My absolute favourite was ‘Once Upon a River‘, closely followed by 2 Kindle books, ‘The Beekeeper‘s Promise‘ and ‘The Snow Gypsy‘.
6 books off #MountTBR and only 3 for #readingUSA2019 - better get a move on with that challenge!
📚Books I read in February📚
The Light Between Oceans
The Tao of Pooh
Where the Crawdads Sing
Killer by Nature (not pictured)
In Cold Blood (162 pages read)
I haven‘t rated TKAMB yet. It will count as a book finished in February but I have about 50 pages to finish up today.
