Month In Review [February 2012]

Once again, I'm borrowing the idea from Crystal at Just Another Book Lovin' Girl to post a Month in Review. I was super ambitious this month—setting a goal of reading 14 books this month. Yeah, I know. That's a lot of books for the shortest month of the year. I didn't reach my goal, but I still read plenty!

Between being sick for several days, getting "stuck" on a few books, and totally over-committing, it's no wonder that I didn't make my goal. [Grin!] Enough of that, though. Here's what went on this month in case you missed something . . .

Books Read [8]



Favorite book this month?
This is SO tough for me, but I think my favorite was Promise Me This. I savored it for an entire week! Yep. A week. It was just that good. Very close seconds would be Words Spoken True and A Texan's Promise.

Reviews Posted [16]
Ellie's Haven by Sharlene MacLaren (FIRST Wild Card Tour)
Winter Promise by Martha Rogers (FIRST Wild Card Tour)
Mornings with Jesus (Litfuse Tour)
Not in the Heart by Chris Fabry (FIRST Wild Card Tour)

Ummm, see what I mean about being over-committed?! I'm also still trying to catch up on reviews for books I've read in previous months!

Update on Reading Challenges
I'm rocking right along on my reading challenges. I'll be updating my progress here soon. Sadly, I didn't get to read my "Just For Fun" book this month, but it's at the top of the stack for March.

Other Noteworthy Posts / Happenings
The biggest thing that happened this month (blog-wise) was posting my 500th blog post! It's hard to believe I've been here long enough for that many posts!!! I celebrated with an impromptu giveaway . . . and the winner is ANGIE!!! Kind of appropriate since Angie was the one who introduced me to Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program. Little did she know . . . Congrats, Angie! I'll be in touch soon!

So . . . what have you been up to this month?!

  1. Yay! I never win anything. :-) I can't believe everything you managed to get read in February. I feel you about getting "stuck" in books, got that way with one of my recent ones. I'll email you my book choice. Thanks!!
