Amanda’s February Wrap Up

Hi, lovelies! Happy first day of March! I’m here today to share with you all the books I read this month. I am pretty proud of myself because I managed to read quite a few books in the month of February. I almost read a book a day. I read a total of twenty-five books. I only accomplished this by doing pretty much nothing other than reading, helped by a fair few snowy and rainy days. Let’s break down what I read.

Amanda’s January Wrap Up

Hi, lovelies! Happy February! This month is going to be filled with so many fun things. But before we can get to the fun I have to wrap up Contemporary January.

So I read a total of twenty books in the month of January. Mostly ebooks becasue of all the late nights up with my daughter that I had since she has decided she’d rather sleep during the day. I’m hoping to keep this pace up through February so I can read all the books I have on my TBR for this month. I’m not going to post a general TBR for February becasue I have two TBR posts going up for the two readathons I’m doing this month.

How did everyone do this month for reading? Let me know how many books you read in January down below! Did we read any of the same books?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – New to my TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is top ten – Most recent additions to my TBR list.

Okay so what I did here was I went to GoodReads and set my to-read list to most recently added and these are the ten books I added most recently.
