February is over already loves! How did this happen? It feels like February flew by and I only just managed to keep up. Grab a cuppa and get comfy as I recap how my February went, why I vanished from my blog and you get a looksie at my tidy wardrobe!
If I DNFed the book then I’ll include it in brackets and the page number I DNFed at..providing I remember!
The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F C Yee
Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Astrology Made Easy: A Guide To Understanding Your Birth Chart by Yasmin Boland
Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen
I’ll put in brackets whether the book was bought, pre-ordered, won or gifted to me. If it happens to be a review copy/arc then that’ll also be in the brackets!
Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen (bought)
Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F C Yee (bought)
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho (bought)
On The Fence by Kasie West (bought)
Resisting Gravity by Vera Calloway (bought)
She’s With Me by Jessica Cunsolo (bought)
I’ve already read the Epic Crush of Genie Lo and I started Wicked Fox…I do need to finish it though. As for the last 3 books I bough, I’ve been craving fluffy romances, hence my Kasie West buy. The last two are books I first read on Wattpad though that have been published. Resisting Gravity is self published and She’s With Me is published under Wattpad Books. I’m so excited though to read the finished versions of both books!
What I’ve Watched This Month
Whether it be TV shows, movies or a YouTube video I really loved and wanted to share with y’all. You can find it all in this section! Along with a lil ramble of how I felt about what I watched!
NCIS LA Season 9: Ep 1 –
RWBY Volume 7: Ep 11 & 12
(yes there’s a 13th episode but I’m procrastinating on it)
Dark Angel Season 1: Ep 1 & 2
I rewatched the first two episodes when my bestie was round, though now I want to just binge rewatch both seasons of Dark Angel. *sighs*
This month has been a tough month for my mental health. I’ve felt pretty unmotivated, most of this month and just…not felt like blogging to be honest. With that being said, Bookending Spring 2020 kicks off in April which is super exciting. However I don’t think I’ll honestly be posting much in March, except maybe March’s Plan With Me post as well as April’s…because I also have felt unmotivated to plan out my spreads. I’m saving my energy for April at this point so I’m super sorry in advance if I just vanish on y’all.
I’ve not really been blog hopping or really engaging with any of the lovely book bloggers and I feel so so guilty about that. But I know for right now, I’m going to try and chill out in March ready for April, also I want to read more…because February wasn’t a good reading month if we compare to January *sniffs*
As for fun things that happened in my life…I’m hopefully starting driving lessons in March. Excuse me whilst I throw myself under my TBR because the idea of sitting in a car with a person I don’t know terrifies me. I’m also planning on getting a second ear piercing, which I’m so excited and nervous about, mostly excited.
Oh I revived my bookstagram which was gathering dust, whilst the photos aren’t anything fanceh, I love them and that’s all I really care about at the moment. I don’t have any grand plans with my bookstagram at the moment but I am considering maybe meshing graphic design with my photos somehow…dunno how yet xD
Perhaps one of my biggest accomplishments of February was I finally started the process of tidying my bedroom properly…for me properly means I’m actually getting rid of things. Instead of just making everything look tidy. I have a lot of things, a lot of it has been collected over the years and I’ve just not gotten rid of it? So I’ll probably do a post on my bedrooms transformation at some point but I did want to show y’all my wardrobe.
The first two are the before photos haha, with the last photo being the after. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I do plan to eventually have my whole wardrobe dedicated to clothes…ha but for the moment that’s not possible because I’ve still got a things I own and they need to live somewhere. Also I don’t know if you can tell but my owned clothes in my wardrobe has gone down massively I’d say easily by over half haha. A lot of the clothes in there just didn’t fit me anymore and/or I didn’t want to keep it for whatever reason.
Now my wardrobe is organised, with the clothes organised first by height or rather drop height then by category. Onesie > Dresses > Jeans/Lazy Clothes > Vest Tops > T-shirts > Long Sleeve Tops > Jumpers > Hoodies > Fluffy Jumpers/Hoodies > Jackets. That’s going across on the photo, funnily enough I ended up not having any jeans that fitted me but I did buy a new pair this month. So they live with the comfy joggers I own because of their drop height.
Around The Blogosphere
As I go about my blog hopping ways, I save some posts I loved, to share with you here. Ranging from reviews to tags to recommendations to discussions and if I stumble across any announcement posts from others in the community…yep you guessed it they’ll be going here.
Announcements can be from a blogging event (e.g something like Bookending Spring) to readathons to a bloggers new features.
As I haven’t really been blog hopping this month, I don’t have any posts to share with y’all. Hopefully I’ll catch up on blog hopping and have lots of posts to share next month!
Reviews & Recommendations
Bookending Spring 2020
BEspring20 will be kicking off 1st april and I can’t wait for it. I love these events so much, they really help me fall in love with blogging all over again. Anyway, keep an eye out for the sign up form later in March, and thank you to all the people who signed up to be a host for Spring!

Hell if you’re just a reader you’re welcome to join, you will need either a twitter or goodreads which can verify you are indeed a reader. (just because we don’t want trolls ruining our bookish fun!)
The whole idea of the server, is to bring the bookish community together. We can also support everyone better, across the platforms which is great, spreading love is so important in this community. Particularly across platforms I feel, you can also make friends too.

In case anyone wants to snoop on what I’ve been listening during the months, this section will break it down for you! I’ll list the songs and artists and at the end leave the link to the YouTube playlist!
February seems to be a mix of early 00’s and 10’s songs as well as some good ol’ K-Pop thrown in. Honestly I’ve been listening to Taylor Swift’s old country songs and getting all in my feels…anyway I’m looking forward to seeing how my March playlist turns out now haha.
