February: My Month in Review
February came and went – 1/6th of the year flown by already. Of course February is a short month and I was away for a few days in Sicily – which was ace. I hope your February was a good one. What was your favourite read? Here’s my month in review:

US or UK cover: I think both of these are lovely but I prefer the UK version overall:
Backlist Backburn is an end of month event organised by Lisa at Tenacious Reader. If you’ve caught up on any of your backlist then call over and link up. I find this a good incentive to dust off some of my books! I’ve not done very well the past two months but that’s because I overfaced myself a little I think! I’m trying to be a bit more careful now so hopefully March and April I will catch up – although, the best laid plans, yada yada…
Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and Bookish (every Tuesday)
Waiting on Wednesday is an event hosted by Breaking the Spine where every week we get to shine the spotlight on a book that we’re looking forward to.
Announced two readalongs for March:
- Kushiel’s Justice by Jacqueline Carey, details to follow
- A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuide details here. Hope you join in – I think this is going to be a great UF series to be involved in and this is a great way to get on board.
The SPFBO concluded and it was very close! The results are here and I will do a wrap up post during the week.
