Thank god it's March. I am so over winter and I am so happy that we are one month closer to spring. I'm tired of being cold! Anyways, here's what happened in February, along with some very good news!
What I Read:
Sanctuary by: Paola Mendoza and Abby Sheer: 4/5 stars
Concrete Rose by: Angie Thomas: 5/5 stars
One of the Good Ones by: Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite: 5/5 stars
Juliet Takes a Breath by: Gabby Rivera: 4/5 stars
Love and Olives by: Jenna Evans Welch: 3/5 stars
He Said, She Said by: Gigi Gorgeous: 4/5 stars
Stay Gold by: Tobly McSmith: 4/5 stars
How it All Blew Up by: Arvin Ahmadi: 4/5 stars
10 Things I Hate About Pinky by: Sandhya Menon: 4/5 stars
A Tail of Camelot by: Julie Leung: 5/5 stars
Favourite book: I have to give it to A Tail of Camelot. This book surprised me so much because it is a middle-grade novel retelling Arthurian legend but with mice instead of humans. You heard that right. I had to read it for my King Arthur in Young People's Literature course, but I LOVED it. It was adorable, such a feel-good novel.
What I Blogged:
My blogging life has been... meh recently. By this I mean that I am running out of ideas, people! I mostly just blogged book reviews in February, because there wasn't anything I mainly wanted to discuss. I'm in a bit of a writer's block right now. Do you have any tips?
Favourite Blog Posts of the Month:
Despite my February writer's block, a lot of bloggers wrote fabulous posts this month! Here are some of my favourites:
Cee explains what Depression Is
Roberta shares a 2021 Update (Go give her some love, she has had it rough this year so far)
Nicole asks: Unbiased Reviews: Is There Such a Thing?
Sabrina recommends Books Based on Aesthetics
Now here is that good news I mentioned at the beginning: I GOT INTO MY MASTERS PROGRAM!! I am over the moon right now. I will be doing my MA in literature, focusing specifically on YA literature written by Indigenous authors. I just knew I had to focus on YA in my degree. I am really excited for this project and I am so happy that the biggest hurdle has been jumped.
So, I had a good February. I had a week off of school, I got some great news, and I feel like even though this pandemic has taken a lot of opportunities away from me, my future is in a good spot. This pandemic has been tough on the people of my generation, so I hope that the future looks bright for all my fellow gen z'ers. We deserve a break!
So that was my February. How was yours? Do you have any good news to share?
