Don't Let The Door Hit Ya, February: Month in Review

UGH.  February.  What a craptastic month.
Likeness of me in February
I didn't THINK it was going to go that way, but it did.  I got slammed with a pretty awful personal situation in the middle of the month, something that really knocked me for a loop.  I am not ready to post about it here yet, but I think I will in the future.  For now, suffice to say that it just made last month into a very difficult one.

As such, I apologize for my relative absence.  I know my posts have been kind of "blah" lately, and that I've been Twitter MIA, but the calendar has flipped to March and I am going IN LIKE A LION!!  Watch out, world.  Rawr.

(I guess I should say that there was ONE good thing about February, and that was the creation of the Harlem Shake.  I could sit on YouTube for HOURS and watch this crap.  Amazing.)

Anyway, let's talk about books!

The February 2013 Fave/Least Fave honors go to:

February 2013 Favorite: Indiscretion by Charles Dubow
February 2013 Least Favorite: Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

In total, I read/reviewed 6 books:
White Dog Fell From The Sky by Eleanor Morse
Indiscretion by Charles Dubow
Political Suicide by Michael Palmer
Just One Day by Gayle Forman
God Grew Tired of Us by John Bul Dau
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

I also posted one new Small Fry Saturday Review of the Good Night Our World books.

In other book talk, we discussed cover snobbery, I was spotlighted by Christine, I had another fun giveaway, and I MET JODI PICOULT.  Total highlight of my book month!

So, here's hoping for a much better March.  Peace out, February.  Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

  1. I'm sorry your February sucked! March will be better. It simply must be. It's my birthday month, and I will accept nothing less for the beginning of my 30th year.

  2. Oh I won't accept that either. Congrats on the 3-0! You're 6 months ahead of me, I'll be demanding happiness from everyone in September.

  3. I tried to comment earlier, but there was some type of error...

    Anyway, I'm sorry February was so rough on you. I hope March will be better. Like the previous poster, it's also my birthday month (I find that the beginning of spring is more exciting than my birthday these days!).

  4. Stupid February. It's a jerky sort of month. It's my birthday month and it *still* drives me nuts. It's too long and moody. Blah. I'm glad March is here and I hope you have a MUCH better month this time around :)

  6. Sorry your February was crappy! For a short month it really packs a punch sometimes. :( But that is so cool that you met Jodi Picoult!
