Hello, happy weekend!! Today, I’m here with a monthly wrap-up for February.
~ Books I read ~
The Autobiography of George Washington Plunkitt by William L. Riordan. This was one I had to read for my English class, and I just didn’t really like it. I only rated it one star. I think that it was written for people in politics, because that’s what the book’s mainly about.
What the Night Sings by Vesper Stamper. Last year, I read her other book, A Cloud of Outrageous Blue, and I really ended up enjoying it. I liked this one too, though not as much as A Cloud of Outrageous Blue, and I rated it four out of five stars!
Requiem by Lauren Oliver. This is the last book in the Delirium trilogy. I liked the first two books quite a bit, but this one just wasn’t my favorite. I felt like it was just a lot of drama between Alex, Lena, and Julian, and I was really annoyed at all of the characters, except Hana. I think that it was interesting to have parts of it narrated by her. I rated this one three point five stars.
That Summer by Sarah Dessen. I read two other books by Sarah Dessen, Just Listen and The Truth About Forever. I didn’t like the first, but I really liked The Truth About Forever. I liked That Summer too! It was a good book and it incorporates a lot of family things, which I liked. I gave it 4 stars!
Mark Twain’s Own Autobiography by Mark Twain. This was another one I had to read for school (It’s an autobiography English course) and I definitely liked it better than the last autobiography I had to read. I gave it 2.5 stars, because I found it a bit disjointed.
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir. This was a re-read!! I love this series sooo much, and of course it is a five star read for me! Now, I’m on to reading A Sky Beyond The Storm, so…yeah. A lot of sadness ahead.
~ Writing updates ~
Guess what?!?! I finished the first draft of my dystopian novel!!! 😃🎉 Now, I’m on to the second draft!! I am still working on the contemporary one and the fantasy book, but I’m trying to focus the most on writing the dystopian book at the moment!! (I feel like I need to come up with names for them.)
~ Crochet ~
I did a good amount of crocheting this month. I’m working on a blanket, as well as a baby blanket, and I finished a sweater I started crocheting in October!! I made a little doll, too, and I started working on a top. Because March is national crochet month, I’m going to try and crochet something every day of March, so we’ll see how that goes, too!
~ Running ~
I finally got back to running, and went a few miles!

~ Reviewing February’s goals ~
These are the goals I set for myself in the January wrap-up!!
Write at least 1,000 words in one of my books every day. I didn’t write a thousand words every day, but I did get a lot of writing done. I also did a lot of planning, and just working on the characters and everything, too.
Keep up a good posting schedule. Yesss! I posted every Saturday and Wednesday in February!
Run at least 15 miles. I did not get to go 15 miles (it was more like six or something) but I’m going to try and run more in March! (Haha, I feel like I say this every time!)
Run, walk, or go on a bike ride everyday. Nope.
Get 70 followers on my blog. YES!! Thank you guys so much!! I now have 75 followers!!!! 🥰💕
~ Goals for March ~
~ Run 20 miles
~ Work on my book for half an hour a day (it could be writing, or it could be planning or something else book-related)
~ Crochet something everyday
~ Finish reading The Return of the King
