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
- January showed us our first snow and of course it couldn’t just be flurries. No, it was a blizzard that dropped 2 feet of snow. Womp.Womp.
- I also became semi-obsessed with podcasts and have been searching for new ones to listen too.
- I did pretty well sticking to eating healthy and working out (besides the weekend of the blizzard where I completely gave up and that time my husband got amazing donuts). Hope to continue this into February.
- I discovered BookOutlet and am officially hooked (bad for the wallet!)
- We celebrated my grandmother’s 90th birthday. We surprised her with dinner (but not too surprised because well she is 90!)

February is a good month. First we celebrate my parent’s 50th anniversary. Then we have the Super Bowl (Go Peyton!) Then my husband and I get to head to Indiana for an IU basketball game. Pretty busy but all good things. I also plan on focusing on ARCs for the most part to get my giant list down to something manageable.
