Monthly Recap - February 2011


Monthly Progress – February

February in a glance has been one hell of a roller-coaster ride and usually is.

This time last year I had been planning on moving and had been given Avalon [my first pet] and my, how she has grown. One year from now and she has had two litters of her own – the second being today.

However this is not entirely a post about my beautiful family, but my reading habits for this month. While this time last year I think I was sitting on about 5 books, maybe even less than that, I currently am sitting on 14 books read so far this year.

While my reading challenge list is slowly crawling, my buying books and ordering has become insane with a total of books purchased either online or through local bookstores and charity, I am beginning to wonder whether or not it is time to hold back on my spending and get stuck into some books – keeping others on the backburner [or my wishlist] until I have made an impact on my TBR shelf.

Books Read In February:

1. The Devouring- Simon Holt - 5 Stars

2. By The Time You Read This – Lola Jaye- 4.5 Stars

3. How To Get Ideas – Jack Foster & Larry Corby- 4.5 Stars

4. Teach Yourself Creative Writing- Stephen May- 4 Stars

5. 121 Days Of Urban Sodom – Jacqueline Phillips – 2 Stars

Challenge Progress 2011 – February

I read 3 library Books [ Non-Fiction] and 3 [Fiction] Books. Two were pre-dating my buying spree of 2011 and The Devouring was added into January’s ‘Challenge Progress’.

I have decided I am only going to update the amount of books I have read for each challenge during the month and when I have finished I will give you my full progress: example Ebook challenge 12/12 Finished
