2019// Bye February, Hello March

February has come to an end already, so it’s time for my monthly wrap up!

February was an interesting month for different reasons. First the thing that happened at the beginning of the month, which went on for days. Despite that, I was able to keep blogging, though differently than I had planned. I also changed my blog header (twice) because I needed a fresh look. I like how it looks now.

In February I also got in a nice reading flow, which I am very grateful for. I read Starry Eyes, Emergency Contact, and Love & Luck for free on Riveted on my phone. They were only available for 24 hours, and that was a great motivator to keep reading. I also requested a book on Netgalley for the first time ever, and got a rejection email almost immediately. Lol.

In my wrap up from last month I wrote that I would go to South Korea, but it took a bit longer to get my visa than expected. But I got it now, so I’ll hopefully leave soon!

    Your new blog header looks so cute – and very professional!
    You seemed to have a very great reading month. I don’t know if you’ll be doing a review for Emergency Contact, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. I’ve had this book on and off my TBR for over a year now. I’ve just heard a lot of mixed reviews and I don’t know exactly whether I’ll love it or hate it, hahah. Because of that, I’ve been trying to read as many reviews as possible before reading it, since the book is way too expensive to waste my money just to try, hahah.
    I hope you have an amazing time in South Korea! It sounds like it will be a fantastic trip! ❣️

      Thank you!! I’m very happy with how it turned out.
      Yes, I’ll post a review for Emergency Contact this month! I’m still debating whether to give it 1 or 2 stars…😓 It was on my tbr for so long as well, and I’m sad I didn’t like it. So I’d recommend borrowing it instead of buying it if that’s an option for you?
