February 28, 2014 • Cee • Monthly Recap

Guess who was finally out of her YA reading slump. This girl, right here! :D February has been a pretty good month. Reading awesome books and having awesome conversations with everybody (ie. Love-A-Thon). You guys are seriously THE BEST. <3 Friendships, ftw! *throws flowers and glitter all over the place* I hope March is an even more awesome month!

REVIEWS

Compared to last month, I didn’t review as many books. I blame it on this reading slump I’m having.

ON THE BLOG

  • I didn’t do a lot of discussions this month, which is rather strange. But I did —

— confess to using an alias. Yup. I just feel more comfortable with it. — talk about the cover change of Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswoodtalk about the cover change of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

  • I did debut two new features on my blog!

XOXO: Fangirling about Romances with Kelly of Effortlessly Reading. (The debut post involves bathroom talk. And in the second, Kelly and I debate on the swoon-worthiness of Felix in The Luckiest Lady in London.) — Do Me A Favor! (I ask for you recommendations! The debut post is about my book cover feature. Please help!)

  • If you missed my font posts, check them out here:

{3} – Carolyna Pro Free Alternatives {4} For Valentine’s Day {5} — Georgie’s Picks!

  • These are the books I waited on:

— Half Bad by Sally Green — Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick — Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

THINGS TO DO NEXT MONTH

February wasn’t a big discussion month. I’m gonna try to do at least two posts for each feature I have. I want to do these —

  • Write two discussion posts for The Three C’s: Candid Conversations with Cee
  • Revamp my book cover feature AND do two cover change discussion + a themed book cover showcase
  • Write two Sincerely, Cee letters (because I totally didn’t do that in February and that’s awfully disappointing to me)
  • Ask for another recommendation for Do Me A Favor!

If you have any suggestions of things you want to see in any of the features I mentioned, tell me please. I love getting input. :)

(Don’t worry about You’re Just My Type. I will still be doing those posts in March. )

  1. WOOP WOOP, congrats on getting out of your slump! I was on the verge of falling into one but then The Book Thief happened and it destroyed me. CRESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I’m dying to read Something Real. D.Y.I.N.G.

    I’m looking forward to more You’re Just My Type posts. *waits patiently*

    YAY Cress!
    I hope Something Real is great. I’ve heard so many good things that I want to pick it up, but I’m trying not to buy anymore books until I get my TBR under control.

  3. alice-jane says:

    YAY for getting out of your reading slump!! I’m also looking forward to Something Real as well especially I’m on a reality series vibe because of Reality Boy.

    I’m definitely looking forward to warmer weather but midterms? BLEHHHHH

    Love Cress and I am excited for a Mad, Wicked Folly too! Great haul!

  5. CRESSSSSSSSSSSSSS. That is all.

    I’m quite miffed February is over so fast *sniffles* but March means all my shows are coming back so now it doesn’t seem so bad hehe :3 Plus more My Mad Fat Diary woo hoo! Although I think it ends this month too because there are only like 7 episodes. Why did I remind myself ;___;

  6. Kelly says:

    Yey! Reading slumps are the worst!

    I LOVED Cress and I’ve heard such great things about A Mad, Wicked Folly.

    Any luck figuring out the new name for your book cover feature?

  7. Yay for kicking that slump’s ass! Hopefully March will be full of awesome books too. :)

    Also GURL WHAT IS THAT FONT!? I need it!
