February 2015 Roundup

February was a pretty good reading month, quantity-wise… I’m actually keeping on pace with my reading from 2012, the year I finished 100 books.  I did not expect that, but hey, it gives me a lot of room for a slump later in the year!  Many of my reads this month were a little disappointing, but I guess that’s just how it goes sometimes.  I did pretty well in getting posts up for February, as well.  I also have been trying to keep up with reading/commenting, though, that varies greatly week from week.  I’m pretty happy where things are at blog-wise, so it’s just a matter of keeping things going as things get busy for me at work.

Books Read:

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (audio)

The Smart One by Jennifer Close

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (audio)

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by emily m. danforth

Curly Girl: The Handbook by Lorraine Massey

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (audio, reread)

Girl Before a Mirror by Liza Palmer

In the Works: I’m currently reading Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai and listening to Lost & Found by Brooke Davis on audiobook.  I’m in a bit of a blah phase of reading at the moment, running into a lot of disappointments and having trouble deciding what I feel like reading next.  I think it might be time to do a few more rereads… but we’ll see.  I’m waiting on the haul from my library hold spree to come in and I’ll go from there.

I’d hoped to get caught up on my review backlog in February, but that didn’t happen.  So, it’s on my list for March, as well.  I plan on doing more mini-reviews… those are always good when I get behind.  I’m trying to keep up with Top Ten Tuesday, too, but some weeks I’m more inspired than others with the topics.

In non-book, non-blog news.  I’ve been doing yoga twice a week with the city since January… one class is pretty good, the other not so much.  The current session is almost over, and I signed up for a zumba class for the next session instead.  I’m pretty horrible at dance sorts of things, but thought it was worth a try.  In any case, I just want to stay active.  Other than that, March is an exciting month because my daughter’s second birthday is at the end of the month!  Work will be picking up a lot in the next month, so we’ll see just wait and see how reading/blogging goes in the face of that.
