February Wrap Up

It’s really hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that it’s already March again, although at least this time I know I’m about to enter a period of intense transition. Things are a bit up in the air with my job at the moment so I’m a tad stressed about things. I’ve found myself in a bit of a slump reading wise this last week where I just can’t quite get my brain to settle and focus right now and I think that’s why. So who knows what March will bring. But anyway, you’re here for me to tell you about books! And I will, but I changed the format again and so I would love for you to tell me your thoughts on this format!

Pink background, text in the center says February Wrap Up with a silvery-blue leaf in the background behind it. Below that is a set of six books standing upright and then text that says firewhiskey reader and then a mug of coffee with whipped cream on top

I didn’t actually manage to make a single Bingo and this really served to remind me that my mood reading is not really based on trope. I love so many of the prompts on the other squares but I’m not good at getting Bingo in a month with trope based on prompts! Oops.

Okay, I think that is all I have bookmarked or otherwise saved to share, but tbh, I’m probably missing something! So please share with me if you think there’s something I missed that I shouldn’t have!
