Monthly Rewind ~ February 2016

Posted March 3, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Monthly Rewind / 41 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books


  • We celebrated my parent’s 50th Anniversary with a really nice dinner. It’s always good to see family.
  • My husband and I went to Indiana for an IU basketball game. It was tons of fun to get out for a weekend plus they won!
  • My husband celebrated his birthday this month. We didn’t do much but did go out to eat with his family.
  • I  started a food and health (but way more food let’s be honest!) Instagram.
  • Was excited to have a lot of my favorite shows back – Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, HTGAWM and Girls.

What’s Ahead

My daughter’s birthday is in March so we have a party and a family party to do. Also, this month is my first blogoversary for Rebel Mommy Book Blog. Woot Woot. Not sure if I will do anything fun but maybe. Nothing else really planned. I do hope to get through a bunch of ARCs but I am reading super slow lately.

How was your February? What was your favorite book from the month?

  1. Yay for enjoying Pivot Point! Split Second was even better for me. There’s a second romance that’s just amazing! 🙂
    And how exciting for your 1st blogoversary! I can’t believe you’ve been doing this for a year already! 🙂
    Have a great March too!

  2. Your February sounds fabulous! I always love spending time with family. I currently live three hours from family. My husband and I are driving over this weekend just for a visit. It’s hard because my nephew is almost six months and last time I saw him he was three going on four. I’m missing his first year and it’s killing me.

    PIVOT POINT is a book that I hope to read this year. I’m glad that you enjoyed it!

    Happy birthday to your daughter! And congrats on one year of blogging! That’s quite the accomplishment! I love your blog and I hope to see many more anniversaries!

  3. It sounds like you had a good month! Yay for the basketball game! I’m glad you and the hubs had fun! I am reading pretty slowly lately too. I don’t know what my deal is! Hopefully I can get back in to groove this month. Yay for your blogoversary coming up! How exciting! 🙂 My favorite book from February was You Were Here by Cori McCarthy! I loved that so much! I hope you have a great month!

  4. February went so quickly! It really IS the shortest month, even with that extra day thrown in there. I was hoping to read more this month, but sometimes life just gets in the way, huh? Sounds like you are having a lot of birthdays to celebrate lately. In my family, both my parents and myself are all April kids, with my parents just two days apart, so it gets a bit crazy! Happy March!

  5. Your food pics are simply divine (as I sit here waiting for my husband to get home so we can go EAT lol). My 1 year blogoversary is in March, too. 🙂 I was determined to lay off the ARCs this year but yeah… that hasn’t been happening. I just got approved for two more today. (ahem…) February was not a real stand-out reading month for me. Several were good but none were great. Nothing blew me away. Hate when that happens! Better luck this month!
