That’s a Wrap! February 2017

That's a Wrap! February

Real life definitely slowed down my reading progress this past month, but I’ve read more books and written more reviews than I’ve had time to post here. I admit I’ve been in a bit of a book slump lately, so I need motivation to stay on schedule. Nonetheless, I’m determined to keep my 2017 Reading Goals. Read on to check out the good, bad, and ugly status of my goals, plus a wrap-up of books reviewed on the blog in February.


Reading Goals: February Status Update

I need you all to hold me accountable, so for better or worse, here’s the lowdown on my 2017 Reading Goals status.

  • DNF without guilt.
    I didn’t feel the need to DNF any books this past month, but I came thisclose a couple times.
  • Have more variety.
    I read two dark romances, Debt Inheritance and First Debt, by Pepper Winters. It’s not a genre that I typically read, so I definitely pushed myself a little out of my comfort zone.
  • Give new authors a chance.
    See above. Pepper Winters is a new-to-me author. I’m not sure her writing style is quite my thing, but I’m glad I tried something new.
  • Go on an ARC diet.
    I fell off the wagon. Big time. I blame my blogger friends. You know who you are. I signed up for six ARCs in February, but only three were through tour companies. Reviewing an ARC through an author or publicist is a lot less stressful, so do I get any bonus points?
  • Meet or exceed my Goodreads Reading Challenge.
    I’ve read 21 books so far, which is five books ahead of schedule!


Here’s to a great March!
