Monday Maunder: February in Review


Can you believe another month has gone by in 2015?  I cannot believe how fast this year is going so far!  With another month gone, it is time to look at February in review here on the blog and beyond.  Let's get with it!

The TOP POST for the month, both in comments and hits is Wordless Wednesday:  Hiking Beauty.  At first, this took me a bit by surprise, but then I realized that I didn't write as much as I had originally planned for the blog.  That is all changing though!  At this very moment, I can tell you that I have already scheduled twelve (12!) book reviews/discussions through the beginning of April.

The TOP PIC for the month over on Instagram was this beauty from my first snowshoe adventure.  I have not yet had the chance to get back out there, but I am hoping to one more time before the snow disappears.  Once again, I did not have many pictures posted this month.  I'm going to be working to post more pictures this month.


As for the BOOKS READ . . . I definitely did not read as much this month as I did last month.  I had a total of three reads completed this month, making a total of thirteen (13) reads for the year so far.  I will admit though that I am very close to finishing another three books at the moment (one print book, one audio book, and one writing book).  Here is the list of books completed:
  1. The Secrets of Droon #1:  The Hidden Stairs and the Magic Carpet by Tony Abbott
  2. The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman
  3. X: A Novel by Ilyasah Shabazz

My FAVORITE READ of the month goes to X: A Novel by Ilyasah Shabazz.  

I'm looking forward to lots of things in March, including a great stack of books (not all of which have been determined yet), some fun adventures that I will be sharing pics of on Instagram, writing projects, and more.  I am also taking on movies over at Book Bloggers International this month with Movie Madness March, featuring some great pieces from book bloggers about movies with a literary twist.  I think I am even going to jump in on at least two different events happening this month -- DWJ March and Bloggiesta.  LOTS of great stuff coming!

How was your February?  What are you most looking forward to in March?

  1. Wow, 12 posts already? I keep trying to do more scheduled posts, but I can't seem to get in the groove with those.
    I did my February recap yesterday, but basically my favorite book was Yes, Please by Amy Poehler. As for March, I am looking forward to continuing the Southern Reach Trilogy :)

  3. Twelve reviews - that's great, Tif! And I'd forgotten about DWJ March. Now I need to decide which book to read for it!
