February 2015 in Review

Posted February 28, 2015 in Faith, Reading / 2 Comments

It is so hard to believe it is the end of February already. This has been a crazy month.

Things that Happened in February

  • Lent started with Ash Wednesday the beginning of the month.
  • I got the nasty cold thing going around the school. I have to remember to thank my students for that one.
  • We had this really great false spring with temperatures in the 60s (Farenheit) and then we were down to the negatives again.
  • I left town twice this month! This is pretty big when the closest other places are 2+ hours away and there is a lot of snow on the ground.
  • I spent a great deal of time with my head in a book and I am perfectly okay with that.

Books I Read in February

SacrificedSeekerThe Winner's CurseWater Song
The Kiss That Saved HerCinderScarlet
Of Shadow and StoneThe Turnip PrincessAn Uncertain ChoiceAkarnae
The Holy Trinity in the Life of the ChurchThe Magician's NephewDauntless
Victoria and the RogueThe FranciscanThe Orphan QueenShiver

On the topic of  The Orphan Queen:
I will not be writing a review. I feel like I cannot give a review since I was not able to read the full book. Apparently the Edelweiss eARC was only the first hundred pages or so. I feel like the story was just getting started when suddenly it ended. I don’t think I can really give a review of a book that I did not read in totality.
I received this book for free from the publisher via Edelweiss for review consideration. This in no way affects my opinion of the title.

Books I Began in February and Plan to Finish in March

    • Thanks. My mom keeps telling me I read too much and too fast. There isn’t much to do but read though when you live in the middle-of-nowhere Montana. 🙂

      Thanks for visiting!
