February Wrap Up – No Love For Free Books

February 2017 Wrap - Book Reviews - Book Giveaway

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.

Book Reviews

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.

Book Haul

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?
