This month has to be my worst month for reading since I started this blog. I only managed to finish one book, mainly because I made the mistake of signing up for Netflix.
If you are familiar with this blog, then you know I got lost in the ocean of TV Series for almost 5 years before I came back to books. Hopefully, I’ll find my willpower somewhere between Dr Who and Shadowhunters and catch up on my reading in March.
I did manage to churn out a number of reviews this month, along with my active contributors. Shoutout to Aisha and Tuawa; If I only have to work with the pair of you I would be a very satisfied blogger. You rock!!
If you missed any reviews this month, catch up here:
No Love For Free Books
I never thought I’d see the day when book people refused to grab a chance to get free books. Frankly, it is shocking. Granted the book offered isn’t exactly popular… but FREE BOOKS!
I had to cancel my February giveaway due to a LACK OF ENTRIES. As in, not a single soul tried to get this book. So sad… but not for me, though. I went ahead and gave myself a couple of new books, for comfort. You know how it is.
Not a haul, not really. My Netflix preoccupation didn’t leave much room for me to worry about books. And there’s the economy. So, I took it easy and went for 2 books that have been getting rave reviews left, right and centre.
- Easy Motion Tourist by Leye Adenle
- Season Of Crimson Blossoms by Abubakar Adam Ibrahim
Another one bites the dust…
2017 is zipping past like play and I’m at that point in my life where I worry about finding purpose and not wasting my 20s. Especially when I come across ladies like Chibundu Onuzo, I start to feel the beginnings of a panic attack.
Is this a thing that happens when you’re about to hit 25 or is that just me?
Anyways, this is it. February in a nutshell. No Valentine’s feelings for me. I’m trying to be okay with that… Not really.
How was your month? Did you get to do everything you set out to do?
