In Case You Missed It: February 2012!

Wow, February just flew by for me! We had so many things planned this month on the personal front that it felt like I was constantly on the move! It was a fun month though. We got to celebrate both Valentine's Day and my fiance's birthday and one of my closest friends got married! We are moving through our wedding to do list. Since my last update we have ordered our Save the Dates (can't wait to see them in person!), organized hotel blocks, created a wedding website, ordered our wedding cake/cupcakes (yummy!) and perhaps something else but those are the big things! In two weeks my mom and grandma are coming up to visit and we are going shopping for my wedding dress and I can not wait for that!

Around the blog I feel like I was reading really big books in February which cut into the amount of books I read total. I try not to read books just because they are short so that I can get through more reviews but try to pick them for their quality. However, this month the shortest book I read was 304 pages and the longest was 528. There were some doozies this month for sure!

After a stellar reading month in January, February just didn't live up to my high expectations but I still managed seven great books, bringing my total for the year to 16 books.

Here's how it all broke down:

So that's my February! How was yours? What was your favorite read this month?

  1. I have a copy of Gillespie and I on my way and now I'm nervous! We have a lot the same taste in books, I've noticed and if you don't like it, I'm betting I won't, either.

    Looks like you had a productive month. Good vibes for March!

    1. A lot of people really liked Gillespie and I. I was in the minority so you might be just fine!
