A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Goodbye February!

I would love to say that I’m going to miss Feb, but honestly yeah.. no… I’m so not! Any of these winter months can just go take a flying leap off of a very tall cliff! Please! So, with bated breath I’m still waiting for Spring to arrive. Cannot wait! But in the meantime, I have been reading a ton! I’m worried that spring fever may kick in and interrupt my reading since I have a LOT to do for March! Here’s the rundown for how Feb went and what’s coming up in March!

Feb Included:

 

FAV book of the month:

I enjoyed both of these immensely! And although they are very different they both encompass what I love to read; different takes on stories, fabulous fall in love with characters, and a great plot!

Book club with the fam kicked off wonderfully and my favorite book so far has been The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. I must insist that everyone who loves to watch The Big Bang Theory gets this. It is so fun to read and honestly had me laughing out loud multiple times. Sadly not everyone in our lil book club liked it, but I thought it was to die for. Die laughing that is!

Incoming for March:

I’m so excited for March! Firstly maybe we’ll all start to have some warmer weather. That would be awesome! Secondly, there are three fabulous things happening!Take Control of Your TBR Pile 2014

For the Take Control of my TBR Pile (which desperately needs to be done) I am getting intense. I have decided to kill off some of these Netgalleys. Woot! Finally… Only problem? I have a massive, and I do mean a massive amount. So, the idea is to read as many as I possibly can during the read a thon. I’m seriously hoping for a book a day and that only puts me at four. So for the month I’m hoping to get another ten read. So 14 TBR books, and since I can’t stand a number like that, I’ll just bring that baby up to 15!

  1. The Fever
  2. The Here & Now
  3. Don’t Even Think About It
  4. Your Mind is What Your Brain Does
  5. Best Kind of Broken
  6. Undone
  7. The Answer to Bad Religion is Not No Religion
  8. The Echoes of Love
  9. Lingering Echoes
  10. Freak of Nature
  11. The Undiscovered Goddess
  12. Dead Beautiful
  13. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
  14. Two and Twenty Dark Tales
  15. Beautiful Disaster

So… that’s the plan. I am really hoping to get closer to that coveted and never earned 90% feedback point. Actually, I would like to get to 100% but considering I have a lot more books sitting in Netgalley, that may not happen.

For the Giveaway!! I’m going to giveaway the new Terry Pratchett Steam! I haven’t even read this yet so I’m super psyched about it!

        Thank you! I’m going to need it! Dang that Netgalley!

    1. Peggy @ The Pegster Reads

      I am so looking forward to The Rosie Project now. I’ve got it sitting here in paperback – it is part of the Richard and Judy Bookclub here in the UK this spring. I liked the story from the synopsis, but haven’t touched it yet due to quite a few review books which I promised…
      Have a great week and Happy Reading!
      My Sunday post is here

        It was so cute! I really loved every second of it. I’m in a book club and everyone had their own opinions, some good, some bad, but of course I just thought it was fabulous!

      • Christina

        I didn’t even get close! This has been a really weird month where I’ll need multiple read a thons to try to get ahead!
