February was a month 🤯 My health issues continued to plague me but after seemingly endless rounds of medication, I’m starting to finally feel semi-human again. I’ve just felt constantly drained of energy the whole time but I had to push through especially since I also moved houses and did the majority of the cleaning and packing myself. I really need to start taking on Marie Kondo habits into my life and minimise (next time)! But I digress… Despite all the craziness this month I managed to read 22 books, mostly thanks to the crazy romance reading challenge I set for myself during Valentine’s week.

I don’t think I’ve read this many books in one month since some time last year but I guess that’s what reading romance does to you! As I mentioned before about half of these reads were done in that one week when I challenged myself to read all the romances. I devoured them and luckily enjoyed most of them! It’s really hard to pick just one favourite this month since I had quite a few five star reads and I’m still thinking about all of them plenty!
Aside from the romances, I read a lot of blog tour reads this month but I didn’t manage to read as many ARCs as I hoped to since these tour reads were my priority. Although things got *slightly* stressful with the reads towards the end of February I’m still really enjoying being part of all these blog tours. Never thought that I’d get the chance to participate in quite as many as I have!
I think things have been going pretty steadily on the blogging front this month. I gained a few new followers so I’m inching that much closer to my goal of 500! I think I can manage to reach my goal this year and I’m really excited. I’ll be hosting my first blog giveaway when I do! 😍 I know it’s “just a number” and for many of you 500 isn’t a big deal but as an international blogger with the majority of my readers on the other side of the world, it’s often difficult to gauge the right times to post and interact. It’s pretty hit or miss (even when following my blog stats) but I still love it! I really never thought I’d get 50 followers let alone 400+ so I’m still kinda shook (but obviously ecstatic) 😂 What was life even like pre-blogging?! I just love this community so much and I’m thankful for all of you lovely people 🥰
I hope everyone’s February was great! I hope that you read all you set out to and that life in March will get even better! Happy reading 🙂
