Wrap Up: Feb ’17

Hello everyone, here we are for my usual monthly post, haha. Let’s see how my month went! 😛

What’s Going On With Me?

February was a nice month. I didn’t have a lot of tests, and I didn’t have any essay to deliver, but I had to plan my tests and essays for March, and guys – I’m already dreading next month! But still this month, I managed to keep my promise of posting twice a week. (proud). I also re-started the project of deep cleaning my room: I donated a lot of clothes and threw away other stuff. I’m not done yet, but I’m getting there! One of the things I also did this month (but it honestly seems like a lot more time ago) was cleaning my social media: deleting facebook friends that I don’t care about (people from my old and current school that are only looking for drama all the time, for example) and unfollowing some people. It’s still a work in progress …

Books I Received 

Again, I didn’t buy any book. I’m doing fine with my half book ban haha “Half” because I still requested a couple of books from Netgalley and was approved for Queens of Geek and Internet Famous.

Books I Read

Seems like my average of books read per month is four! A book a week is the most I can manage during school months 😦


The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict – 3,5 💫

A voice that was silenced, like many others throughout history. Albert Einstein’s first wife’s life (even though as fiction) was very interesting, and while I enjoyed it and thought there was great character development, I still couldn’t understand some of the decisions that were taken here. I also found the pace a bit slow.

A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe – 4 💫

Original, amazing and full of action! Reading about Sora was a relief after reading about so many other characters that find out they’re the chosen ones. The romance wasn’t particularly interesting to me, as there was kind of a love triangle and insta love – and this would have been a perfect book without any love interest, believe me!

The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel – 3 💫

This is a very light and entertaining read, but get ready for the clichés! Honestly, I wouldn’t have minded those so much if the plot twist had actually pleased me. The first chapters were the best part – they reminded me of a romantic comedy movie!

A Thousand Salt Kisses Later by Josie Demuth – 2 💫

I only read this one because it was a sequel, honestly, and I expected more. It gave me something that I wanted to see in the first book, but the rest was just disappointing. I’ll post my full review soon!

Posts You Might Have Missed

Currently Reading


Still stuck with Memorial do Convento by José Saramago, that I’m reading for my Portuguese class. I managed to read 89 pages, but the story didn’t catch my attention and so I eventually gave up for the month. But I really have to finish it.

Movies I’ve Watched 

  • Selma (during English class)
  • and I re-watched The Princess Diaries at some point this month

March TBR

So we’re about to reach my birthday month, and I really want to read books I’m OVER THE MOON EXCITED to read!! And those are:

I’ve had The Blood of Olympus on my shelf for a few weeks now, I borrowed it from my best friend and I’m sure she wants it back 😛 Also, after the books I read this book (most were 2-3 stars for me), I really need to read any Rick Riordan book. Queens of Geek is coming out in March, so I want to read it at the same time that I need to read it, haha. And I’ll read Only Ever Yours because I’ve wanted to read that book for such a long time, and I’ll take my opportunity this month!

How was your February? What books are you planning on reading in March? 🙂

    Hi! I love Moana too! It is incredible and the music is so good. It’s awesome. I am wanting to read A Mortal Song but I am not a fan of instalove and triangles. But you say it’s good even despite of that so I may still read it. 🙂

      hii! 😀
      Moana was so good, I still can’t believe How Far I’ll Go didn’t win Best Original Song 😦
      I feel the same way when people tell me that there’s a love triangle in a book haha but if I just *forget* about it, the book is good, so I’d give it a try 🙂

      I’ve only read the first chapter of Queens of Geek so far, so I can’t say much really haha But I’m excited to pick it up again!!
