Hey there! ✨
I know, February ended like weeks ago and this wrap-up is way too late now but I committed on posting monthly so we will push through this post late or not! February was such a great month for me bookish-wise, I unlocked an achievement during its first week. So if you want to know just read-on to find out.
My February reads were mostly ARCs and a few blog tour books. The Mitch Albom book was a required reading for school and I’m still reading ASOUE, so basically out of these ten books I only read one random book on my TBR that is not an ARC.
Books I already reviewed: (titles are linked to my reviews)
- #famous by Jilly Gagnon (★★★★☆)
- Found: Letters on Life, Love, and God by Isa Garcia (★★★★☆)
- 10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac (★★★☆☆)
- Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell (★★★☆☆)
- The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz (★★★★☆)
Upcoming reviews to look out for: (titles are linked to their Goodreads page)

For Blogging, I mostly posted book reviews last month and most of them are already linked above. I definitely produced more content last February compared to the other previous months and here are my other posts:
- Mini Reviews: IDA and If This Is Home
- Blog Tour Review: Keep the Faith [+GIVEAWAY]
- January Wrap-up + Favorites 
As for my reading/blogging notes, uhm I’ll talk more about stuff later but last month I did join a couple of blog tours which I was hesitant to do before, and I’m halfway through the ASOUE.
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life is one of my most anticipated reads for 2017, I was SO happy when I got approved to read it on Netgalley. And unexpectedly, I loved it like seriously I was so into the book that I basically cried through every page. If you’ve read my and other people’s reviews you might have heard that this book is somehow problematic and I acknowledged that but I still love it. The characters are the best part, Sal is a precious cinnamon roll that you just want to protect from the world. This book definitely deserves a spot on favorites shelf.
BEST MOVIE EVER. I swear, my heart was soaring all throughout the movie! Hidden Figures is about these three girls working at NASA, and it’s based on real-life events and people. AND IT’S SO AMAZING AND INSPIRATIONAL AND EMPOWERING AND AHHHHH. It’s an uplifting movie that I see myself re-watching 999x because it’s that good. I liked the characters, plot, even the cinematography and musical score were spot-on. I’m really, really disappointed that it didn’t win anything on Oscars, it deserves more recognition!!
Before I watched Hidden Figures La la Land was my favorite movie for the month, yup I liked it because of its ending. Many tears were shed while I was watching this, but what I really love is their soundtrack! My favorite song for the month is A Lovely Night, I think I had it on repeat for a whole week? It’s so nice and the tap dancing part is cute and romantic and everything!! Of course I also liked City of Stars and Audition (The Fools Who Dream).
For my favorite album of the month, the one that I have played countless of times is The Little Prince OST. I know it’s pretty late, I have seen the movie last year but I don’t know how I ended up watching a video of the song Suis-moi by Camille but it’s so GOOD, the title is linked to the video so just click there to listen to it. Here’s the thing it’s in French like most of the songs in the album, I just find the songs so relaxing. It feels like I’m at France or something and it’s such a great album to listen to while reading.
February was really a bookish month for me, during the first week of it I received my very first bookmail as a blogger from Penguin Random House. I still can’t believe that they sent me physical, tangible, real-life books???!!! I have only dreamed of receiving books to read and review before but now it’s already happening. I just want to say thank you to PRH Global for sending me those copies and to each and every one of you who reads my blog because this wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for you all!
Anyways, last month I also bought a few titles including More Happy Than Not that I’m really excited and nervous (because I know that it’ll make me cry!) to read. So yeah, that’s all I can share for February just a bookmail and some book purchases. Lol, I’m sorry my life is not interesting!
Oh, I joined a contest that involves using HAM or Amateur Radios as part of the International Thinking day celebration. Other than that and some other school stuff, my life’s really a meh.
Well, that’s a wrap! Thanks for sticking with me even though this post is way too late. I would love to hear from you, let’s talk at the comments! Have you read any of the books I mentioned? HAVE YOU WATCHED HIDDEN FIGURES YET? How about La la Land? (if yes, did you liked it?) And if you want to share your February wrap-up post jut leave link, and I’ll be sure to check it out too.
Hope that you’re having a great day today, happy reading and blogging!
