February Recap!!!




I seriously cannot believe the month of February has come and gone. Not to say I'm not happy because that means Spring Break for me, but wow this year is already flying by. I have finally found a happy balance between work, school, and reading/blogging. I couldn't be happier about this because last semester it was difficult to find time for anything but sleep. I'm started dieting and exercising again and have lost 7 pounds!! Go me!


February Favorites:
Stay with Me by J. Lynn and Nothing Between Us by Roni Loren have been on my shelves collecting dust for a little while now and finally they just called for me to get off my butt and read them So I finally did and they were just as beautiful and I thought they would be. Him was an impulse buy after I had read a super crappy book. I just needed something new and Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy was fabulous.

Best Read of February:
I think because I wasn't expecting this book to be just so wonderful and it was that it ranked in my top books for favorite of the month! Plus I totally have a M/M fetish so Him was great for that.

Book That Surprised Me:
If we are going to be honest I picked up Deviants with the intent of hating it. I was in a bad place with reading where everything had just been mediocre and it was getting to be scary to pick up any books at all. I fell in love from page one with Deviants and am so happy this book surprised me out of my rut. 

Book Crush of the Month:
These two hunks are Roni Loren's picks for her boys in Nothing Between Us. I adore these boys as they are super yummy. While the images aren't exactly what I picked in my head they're still yummy.

I came up with this challenge for myself as a way to read the way I watch Netflix shows: Binging. This challenge is to help me get a big bunch of books read by binging. Ending a Series Challenge: this challenge has made no headway. I started to read a couple of them and just couldn't get into them. I wasn't always in thr right frame of mind while reading so I want to make sure I am when finishing these loevly books.

I wasn't going to work on this challenge with my other challenges going on, but as me and my bestie say "When in doubt Armentrout" and so that's what I did and was able to get back into reading mode.

I got two new books on Edelweiss, but I finished the one from last month I didn't finish and one of the one's for this month. Only one left for now.

I got two books done for this challenge and have gotten all but one of the books I've read reviewed on Netgalley, go me!

Books I'm Excited for in March:

How was your February?
