Month in Review: February

Hello everyone! I can't believe February is already over. To me it flew by and now I have only one month left of my first year of university! Here's what happened in February:

What I Read: 

Pride and Prejudice by: Jane Austen: 4/5 stars
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by: Mackenzi Lee: 5/5 stars
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by: Rick Riordan: 4/5 stars
Five Little Pigs by: Agatha Christie: 3/5 stars
One of Us is Lying by: Karen M. McManus: 5/5 stars

What I Blogged:

We got a little ranty this month! My favourite post I did was JK Rowling, You Need to Stop. It was good to get some things off my chest regarding the Harry Potter series in its current state.

Favourite Blog Posts: 

Claire says #Never Again 
Amy explains why Tamlin and Feyre is an Unhealthy and Abusive Relationship 

Life Stuff: 

Nothing really eventful happened in February! Like I said, it kinda came and went quickly. I had my reading week so it was nice to have a break and go home. But other than that, it was just school and writing. I did get to submit my writing portfolio for my program, and I'll know by mid-April whether I'm accepted. Finger's crossed!

How was your February?

  1. Ohmygosh you are so organised!!! I haven't even started writing my Feb wrap-up yet! Lol :)

    1. Lol, I had some extra time on my hands so I just thought I'd get it done and published. But thanks :D

  2. How are you so organized??? I haven't even done my January wrap-up yet! It looks like you've had a pretty solid month reading-wise (you reminded me that I STILL haven't read Gentleman's Guide and I need to ASAP!) and hopefully March will be the same :) Best of luck in your final month of university, Emily!

    1. Well thanks, Laura! I'm not always like this, trust me ;) You have to read Gentleman's Guide!! It was the perfect blend of historical fiction and diversity.

  3. Hope you get accepted!! Fingers crossed! I'd love to read some of your writing sometime....maybe you'll share a snippet on the blog one day?!

    Looks like a great reading month! Will you be reviewing One of us is lying on your blog? I'm interested to see what you think of that.

    Hope you have a lovely March, Emily :) And thanks for linking to my post <3

    Amy @ A Magical World Of Words

    1. I think I may share my writing very soon! I love receiving feeback :) And yes, One of Us is Lying will definitely be reviewed. While I could not put it down, the ending was a teensy bit problematic. Thanks Amy, Happy March!

  4. Best of luck with your writing portfolio, Emily! I'm glad you enjoyed One of Us is Lying, it was the first book I read this year and I liked the mystery! I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it. Thank you for sharing my post, and I hope you have a wonderful March!

    1. Thank you Claire! I really loved One of Us is Lying, I definitely could not put it down as well!
