February Currently . . .

Here’s what I’ve been up to in February.

I’m Currently . . .

Reading: The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan.

Watching: Survivor and The Amazing Race. I’m a reality TV junkie, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.


Stalking: Do you like really pretty blogs? Check out Cindy’s Love Of Books. It’s one of the prettiest book blogs I’ve ever seen.

Planning: To do better with my book-buying ban. I wanted to read 30 books before I bought new ones. So far, that’s been a colossal failure. Seven new books showed up in the mail yesterday. Oops.

Making: Progress on school stuff. Midsession is on the 28th, and the amount of stuff that I have to do by midsession is slightly overwhelming.

Stocking up on: Blog posts. I’ve been so busy that I got behind on scheduling posts. I’m trying to get ahead again.

Wishing for: Donald Trump to go away. It’s probably not cool to talk about politics on a book blog, but I’m tired of having his face all up in my face every time I turn on the TV. It's February, and I'm already tired of the constant election coverage.

However, I am liking the amusing candidate-bashing on Twitter:


Enjoying: Writing blog posts. I always feel like I accomplished something when I schedule one.

Trying: To get on the treadmill every night, even when I don’t feel like it.

Eating: Healthy stuff. Just like with my book-buying ban, my goal of eating healthy stuff has been a colossal failure. I’m going to try to be better about it.

Goal setting: Survive midsession.

Learning: That I need a lot of sleep to function. Deluding myself into thinking that I don’t need sleep isn’t productive.

What have you been up to this month?


  1. I am one who needs a good amount of sleep to function. I never get a good amount so I am always barely making it through. I am with you on Trump. I am tired of all the election coverage already and we have so much more to go!

    1. I’m trying really hard to sleep more. I’m so much better at life when I’m not tired.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. I'm a Trump supporter, but yeah I'm sick of the non-stop election coverage (this coming from someone who loves politics so much that I minored in political science in college!). It seems like the season started really early this time around and I think we're all experiencing some fatigue with it!

    1. I took one political science class and college and enjoyed it, but I don’t think I could have handled a whole degree. I watched the debate last night and almost had to turn it off because the yelling was stressing me out. Politics is intense.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. I am so not here for Trump and his foolishness and yeah...Good luck with school and eating healthy both are hard.

  4. I'm so tired of seeing stuff about Trump, too. I hope he just goes away, soon. Good luck with school! This month? I've just started trying to get on track. I was sick for two weeks, unfortunately and got nothing done. I have read three books this month, though!
