February Recap + March Goals

I’ve decided to put these two posts together this month because I’ve been scheduling my posts and cannot fit them both in separately. 
It seems ages since the start of February and I’ve read so many great books during the month which makes it really hard to choose a favourite. 
This month I started going to my local Waterstones’ book club which I really enjoyed. I’ll definitely be going to the next one and it’s such a good chance to get some good book recommendations.

My follower goal for February was 160 and I am so pleased to have passed this. At the time of writing this post, I am on 173, which feels so weird. Thank you to everyone who has followed this month and also for everyone else who has continued to support me.

This month I read 12 books and am really pleased with that number because this month is a little shorter than last. I’ve decided not to choose one single favourite because I would be sat thinking about it until the end of March.

My top three are:

1. The Selection by Kiera Cass
2. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
3. Undone by Cat Clarke

The Selection was my second book of the month and I fell in love with it straight away. I really can’t wait until the second book comes out and will be thrusting this book into the hands of everyone I see.

I read Under the Never Sky a week or two ago and found my reading experience very similar to the one I had when reading The Selection. Both novels are amazing and such good dystopians.

I’m in the process of writing my review of Undone at the moment and am really not sure where I’ll go with it. The book was so emotional and really took me on a roller coaster journey and I’m hoping to read more of Cat Clarke’s books in March.

In March I am hoping to reach 190 followers. I’m really not sure if I’ll be able to reach it but I really hope so.  I think if I keep continuing what I’m doing now then it might be possible and really the follower count doesn’t matter, as long as my current followers continue to support me as they already do.

I’m hoping to read:

1. Torn by Cat Clarke
2. Entangled by Cat Clarke
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
4. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

In March, as well as my current book club, I’ll also be going to another at my local library and I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve never been so sociable! In March we’re reading Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and When I was Joe by Keren David.

What did you achieve in February? What are you hoping to do in March? Let me know in the comments!

    Sounds like you’ve had a great month. Congratz on your follower increase, it was well deserved. I am itching to read The Selection and I have the choice of buying it or Insurgent. EEEK, Help I don’t know which one to get. What would you do? Thanks for supplying us with some great posts this month. Happy Blogging.

    Oh. My. Goodness. Throne of Glass is EPIC! There are four novellas that take place before them and I’d definitely recommend them because it gives you a different view of Celaena 🙂
    Congratulations on the new followers, I’m sure there will be plenty more people introduced to your awesome in March 😉

    Go you on reading 12 books! I am still undecided about The Selection but I do have Under the Never Sky to read, I hope I enjoy it, too!

    I loved Torn and Entangled, so I’m glad to hear that Undone is so good! I’m going to try and read that in March, I think 🙂 Also, wow for reading 12 books! I barely managed four… Happy reading Lucy!

    Ooh Throne of Glass! I know it’s had mixed reactions, but I LOVED it. It was one of my favourite books of 2012. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you think of it!
