Monthly Rewind ~ February 2017

Posted February 28, 2017 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Monthly Rewind / 43 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
  • There was the Super Bowl and it was a good game with a crappy outcome (BOO Patriots)
  • We had a little snow which canceled school as well my husband’s flight. That left me without him for almost a whole week and it was awful.
  • Valentine’s Day happened. The kids had cute parties at school. My husband brought us all yummy treats.
  • We visited with family a lot this month which is always nice, especially when the kids see their great grandmothers.
  • My daughter had her Kindergarten orientation and omg when did she get so big!
  • My husband had his birthday which he hates to celebrate so I don’t 🙂 but we did see his family for some cake
  • The weather was also pretty nuts. We had a snow storm in the beginning of the month and then had 70 degree weather towards the end. I prefer the warmer weather and being able to get outside with the kids – hope that keeps up into March!

Challenge Update

You can see my progress on the side bar and the books for each challenge here. On the Shelf Love budget I did ok because I got some sales/gift cards and such.

Tentative March TBR

These are the ARCs I want (need) to get to. I still have some older ones I need to fit in. I might just have to play catch up at some point in the summer with some of the ones I miss.

What’s Ahead

My baby turns 5 in March. I can’t believe it!! We have a friends and a family party going on for her. I also have to register her for kindergarten. Sersiouly can she stop growing up???  We also have other kids parties and I have some get togethers with friends. Looks like it should be a good month!

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

  1. I agree, BOO Patriots! lol! Sounds like you had a great Valentine’s Day with your family, sorry to hear that you had to be without your husband for a week. That’s not fun at all. I would probably be all mopey. lol! My husband and I are always together, so it’s always weird if he has to spend the night away. Looks like you had a great reading month too! Hope you have an even better March!

  3. Oh you have read so many good books this month, yay! I am happy to hear you loved When We Collided, I have that one on my TBR and can’t wait to get around to it, hopefully soon.
    I loved The Serpent King and want to read the Zentner book you have on your TBR, but…I’m scared of all the emotions ahah, so I think I’ll wait a bit. I hope you’ll love it though! Have a lovely month 🙂

  4. 5? Oh she is a big girl now! I hope she has a blast in kindergarten! We just had some snow, but I don’t mind it b/c we had awful wind right before that and a fire. I’ll take snow above that any day. 🙂 Looks like you had a good month even though it was short!!

  6. Despite the snow storm messing things up, it seems like a pretty good month! It’s so sad that our babies grow up so fast. I have a hard time dealing with it!!
    I can’t wait to see what you think of Close Enough to Touch. SO GOOD!
