February Wrap-Up

So February has come and gone. Even though I got a lot accomplished, it wasn’t nearly as much as I had wanted to get done. February was my last month off before going back to work…so I had wanted to get my Netgalley list brought down, finish all of the book club reading, and manage my social life like it was nothing….well the only thing I actually managed to do easily was get sick!

Anyway so here is February in Review..

Of course you can find them here. Although I was pretty inactive during the end of February
