Wrap-up & Book Haul: [Fantastic] February

Wrap-upHi Munchworms!

I think February has gone by fairly quicker than January did and I’m so ridiculously happy with that! I’ve got some concerts to look forward to in the coming months and I cannot wait, haha!
Like, Fall Out Boy? Icon for Hire? Oh, going to see Sam Smith with my mom! And Queen + Adam Lambert in June?! I’m soooo ready for all of them! Not to mention the German festival we’re going to. Whoop!

Anyway. Let’s start this wrap-up with sharing the one song that has been stuck in my head all month now, ever since I saw them live. Just because I can and secretly hope it’ll be stuck in one of your heads’ as well now, ha!

Now, with that song on the background, let’s get to it and see what I read and hauled this month. Prepare to be blown away because… This one might’ve had a small shopping spree. Like, a genuine book-shopping spree… And I didn’t even have to pay myself, ha!

Books I read

SUMMARY

And my conclusion is that I failed ridiculously hard at Fantastic February. I ended up reading way more contemporary and romance than fantasy. It.. well.. ugh..

Guess what! I did it again! Two copies of The Hazel Wood, sir yes sir.
Why am I like this.. Why do I keep buying books that are in my FairyLoot?!

I know why. Because I refuse to check the themes so I don’t spoil myself.. Ugh.

Check this out!

First I want to do some self-promo on my own blog because I noticed a lot of people loved the fact that I stood up and shared a bit of my past. I think it’s the most personal post I’ve written to date. Feel free to check out my discussion-post on authors getting accused of harassment
Then we have the amazing Mikaela @ The Well-Thumbed Reader sharing 10 of her book blogging hacks!
Lu @ It’s Lu Again has a discussion on diversity in books which I loved reading!
Avery @ Red Rocket Panda shared his February bullet journal spread – I honestly love looking at other people’s spreads, haha.
Both May @ Forever and Everly and Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books talk about why and how to support bloggers, which are definitely important posts and even a boost for all bloggers. 
Marie also talked about why rating books can be such a hard task at times and the pressures of blogging. This made me add a little pep talk to one of my posts as well.
Kirstie @ Upside-Down Books shares ten places where you could spend Valentine’s Day – or just about any other day, really.
Austine @ Novelknight tells us why having a brand is important and is creating a Book Community Media Dashboard so be sure to add your own!
I loved Destiny’s @ Howling Libraries review on Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer!
Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek tells us why you should or shouldn’t start a book blog.

Oh, and one very important post! Liza @ Duskangelreads has her March Readathon post up!

Pfoo! That was a lot!
How has your month been? Have you read a lot? Bought plenty of books? Or are you rocking a book buying ban and it’s actually working this time around?! Talk to me!

Yep

  1. Aweeeeeeee. Thank you so much for mentioning me in your post ❤ ❤ ❤ I keep meaning to share some of my fave blogs from this month but I'm never organized enough! I want to do one for my march wrap up though because it's such a nice way to support each other.

    Alsooooo, I have been seeing you reading the Legend series on Goodreads and it has reminded me that I need to get my butt into gear and actually read it this month!

    1. You’re welcome! ❤

      Haha, I tend to just copy/paste them ANYWHERE whenever I stumble upon a post I want to mention. Or I have to dedicate a whole day to checking out the blogs I follow and finding some interesting posts – if I haven't done my prep decently. :') Definitely is a nice way to support one another. It's precisely why I started including them in the first place. 🙂

      Yes, you should! Warcross pretty much sold me on Lu's writing. The Legend-trilogy was good as well. I'm thinking about buying The Young Elites-trilogy but we'll have to see whether my bank account allows it or not..

  2. Ah, thanks so much for linking back to my post! 😘

    LOOK AT ALL THE BOOKS YOU READ. I love Simon Vs, SJM, and the Legend trilogy so that all works for me! This reading month sucked, and I’m hoping March is so much better! And yeah for concerts! I haven’t gone to one since I was 12 and went to see Lorde. 😭

    Also, totally rethinking the whole “not dating until much later in life” thing if it means I can get all the books! 😂

    1. You’re welcome! ❤

      Haha, I did have a good reading month!
      Simon vs. was GORGEOUS. I can't wait for that movie to come out, to be honest. I literally cannot imagine the movie disappointing me?!

      Oooh, boo. You should definitely put that on your to do-list for this year if it's been that long! Concerts are way too much fun to never do!

      Hahaha. Dating is definitely a benefit when it comes to books. Especially if your other half is the WORST at gifts and simply goes "here's my money, buy yourself some books" 😂

  3. That song is ridiculously catchy, I have a sudden urge to go and download it. I still haven’t managed to get around to The Cruel Prince or The Hazel Wood despite getting them in Fairyloot as well! I think all the hype is getting to me.

    1. Hahaha, do it! I still play it at least two or three times very day. I cannot get rid of it at all. 😛
      The Cruel Prince is worth reading. I read it before the hype and loved it. 🙂 Haven’t read The Hazel Wood yet but I’ve seen mixed reviews on that one so we’ll see.

  4. Oh my god, you’re going to see Fall Out Boy? Aghh, you’re so lucky! They’ve never been to my country. Also, woah, that’s a madly productive reading month! What were your thoughts on Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda? I just read it and holy hell it’s beautiful 😭💛
    Great post!
