February 2015: Recap & Wrap-Up!

FebruaryRecap1

February was a pretty decent month! Things have been going well and I’ve been approaching my reading more casually. I’m trying to take on less commitments and picking up whatever I feel like reading (I know I always say that but this time I MEAN it) and I haven’t been reading as many books but the ones I’ve chosen I’ve actually enjoyed much more! I haven’t had too many DNFs or low-rated reads so far this year so I am VERY happy with that!

FunStats

  • Number of Books Read In February: 7. It was almost only 5 but I finished an audiobook and the copy of LOOP that I borrowed from Andi in the final days of February!
  • Popular Search Terms:  “the kill order” & “books similar to if I stay” // “book addict’s guide” // “otsp secret sister” (they are pretty much the same nowadays!)
  • More Amusing Search Terms: “snow white rose red and fred” (who is Fred?)  // “ideas on how to plan my beer bar for valentine” (Tell me more!) // “addiction to fantasy novels” (yep) // “how to be a book addict” (you’re in the right place)
  • Most Referrals (non-social media): Andi’s ABCs, Rather Be Reading, Perpetual Page Turner
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (non-internal/social media)Andi’s ABCs, Swoony Boys Podcast, Tripping Over Books

Events

  • I went to ALA Midwinter 2015!!! It was SO much fun and a great filler for the conference-shaped hole in my heart since I’m almost definitely not going to BEA this year (oh, time and money). It was at McCormick place in Chicago so that was just PERFECT for me. I actually only went on Saturday and that seemed to be enough… I grabbed all of the books I needed, really! I was going to go back Sunday but we had a crazy blizzard and wasn’t able to go back to the conference OR the Bloomsbury dinner 🙁 🙁 I was super bummed! But Saturday was still a ton of fun. I met up with Katie from Polished Page Turners and we stuck together most of the day. I was SO happy to meet Nicole and Ashley from The Quiet Concert again and to meet Jordin (A Bottomless Book Bag), Kay (It’s A Book Life), and Lisa (Bookish Broads) for the first time!!!
  • I got to meet Brandon Sanderson! The event was NUTS — busier than any regular book event I’ve ever been to — but luckily I was #12 for the signing so I didn’t have to wait forever! (Thank GOODNESS we know how Anderson’s operates!) He was so nice, clever, and funny and he personalized three books (I chose my Mistborns!) and autographed ALL of the rest. It was awesome!

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR MARCH?

  • My birthday is on the 11th so I’ll be doing another birthday post and giveaway! Woo!
  • March’s theme for the Book Blogger Organization Challenge is Social Media so be prepared to update & crosspost!
  • I’m on the blog tour for Jessica Brody’s final book in the Unremembered trilogy — UNCHANGED — on March 3rd!
  • I’m having an impromptu Reckoners series weekend… aka, I binge read Steelheart, Mitosis, and Firefight and I’m posting their reviews back to back to back!

    Snow white and Rose red and Fred, hahaha. It’s great you had such a good time at ALA, I really wish we had events like that over here – or that it would be closer so I could join you guys. Happy March :D!

  2. Ashley @The Quiet Concert

    February was an awesome month for you! I cannot wait to start The Winner’s Crime 🙂 It was great finally meeting some many bloggers at ALAMW! I just finished All The Bright Places, it was great the ending though… I was not expecting it and it was heart breaking!

  3. Nicole @ The Quiet Concert

    So happy to hear that you are having success with your reading choices! We definitely all need to put less pressure on ourselves regarding what to read next! I hope March is an even better month! Yay for the coming of Spring (and birthdays ;))
