February Confessions

Winery in Chester County, PA
I'm going to be honest. February has always been one of my least favorite months, but I must admit that this February wasn't too bad.  I had a nice Valentine's Day and we didn't get too much snow, which I am happy about.  My daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips are even starting to poke through the ground.  Lets hope spring is one its way soon!

Books Read in February:
1.  Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
2.  Vixen by Jillian Larkin
3.  Darlings Are Forever by Melissa Kantor
4.  Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt (Classroom Book Review)
5.  The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret Sullivan
6.  Dark Mirror by M.J. Putney
7.  Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel (review to come)
8.  Entwined by Heather Dixon (review to come)
9.  Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar (review to come)

My February Top Five:

1.  Favorite Book:  Unearthly by Cynthia Hand- This is definitely going down as one of my favorites of the year. It's my favorite angel book!

2.  Biggest Surprise:  Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar- I love historical fiction and this one didn't disappoint!

3.  Biggest Letdown: Entwined by Heather Dixon- In my opinion, this book was missing that something special.

4.  Favorite Post:  My Can't Miss TV Shows

5.  My Favorite Part of February:  I went to a bunch of wine tastings with one of my best friends, her boyfriend, and my husband for Valentine's Day. It was about an hour away from where we live and in what I consider the country. It was definitely a fun Saturday!

I'm excited for March and hopefully some warm weather,


  1. I'm so with you on Unearthly. My favourite book of 2011 so far!

    February is always kind of a drab month. I had a fun trip to Dublin and Belfast to do some shopping, but overall there was too much rain!

    It looks like spring has hit Ireland today though. The sun is shining! I even have my sunglasses in my bag!! Long may it last! :)

  2. Leanna- Definitely agree. Unearthly was captivating. I am so glad you did some shopping in Dublin and Belfast. It sounds incredible. I wish I were visiting Ireland again. I hope the sun stays out! :)

  3. i am so pleased eta is on your reading list! i just ordered unearthly. i am in london and spring has gone away again!

  4. Juju- Me too! :)

    Priya- I am a huge fan of your novel. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy Unearthly!
