February 29, 2016 • Cee • Monthly Recap

february

February, you were filled with so much love. I will miss you.

(Also, Happy Leap Day! I wanted to create an awesome post to celebrate this day that happens every four years, but I wasn’t able to. Whoops. Ha.)

WHAT’S UP?

In February—

  • I co-hosted Love-A-Thon with Alexa, Hazel, & Mel, and it was fan-fucking-tastic! 

Love-A-Thon is consistently my favorite bookish event in this community because there’s just so much love and positivity! I loved talking to you all, and caps-locking. It has reconnected me back into the community, and that’s so wonderful. This event shows again how awesome this community can be. I’m so blown away by the many people who decided to partake. Keep the love, joy, and positivity year-round!

  • I MET VICTORIA SCHWAB. 

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS.

SHE WAS FRICKIN’ AMAZING. When I got to the bookstore, I saw her and quickly averted her eyes because that’s Victoria frickin’ Schwab! Gahhhhh. The event was amazing. There was never a lull in the conversation when she spoke. She is a goddess. I was just ajksdhahdasidhadadha, and couldn’t even speak. (I will try to write my recap of the event soon!)

Also at the event, I met Lizzie (aka @nerddelizzie)! She participated in Love-A-Thon a week before, and then a week later, we met at Victoria’s event! What a small world! SEE, THIS IS PROOF LOVE-A-THON BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER IN REAL LIFE. I was internally screaming because how it happened!

  • I finally started listening to new music. 

It felt like ages since I’ve actually listened to music that weren’t in my Music to My (Y)ear post. I’ve gotten back into Ra Ra Riot (who I loved in high school), Foxes, and Daughter! I’M JUST SUPER EXCITED FOR NEW MUSIC. WHEEEE.

  1. OMG YOU MET VICTORIA SCHWAB!!! You’re so lucky! It’s sad really that my country never held any bookish event so I never meet any author *sobs* I hope you’ll enjoy AGOS!

  2. Jess @ POB! says:

    Yay for meeting Victoria Schwab! She actually had a tour stop by me (on my birthday) but it would’ve felt weird to go since I haven’t read any of her books, and anyway I had track meet that day. Your Love-a-Thon seemed super fun! I did sign up but unfortunately I couldn’t participate that much. Note to self for next round: PLAN AHEAD!

  3. The love-a-thon was a BLAST. And you MET FREAKING VICTORIA SCHWAB. So cool.

    February was kind of up and down for me emotionally (#winterblues), but I definitely feel like the Love-a-Thon was an event that really lifted my spirits! It was so wonderful to see how enthusiastic and positive people were, and how much love was spread and friendships were formed. SO glad you co-hosted this year, and can’t wait for next year!
