February has been a mixed bag. There were bright moments with birthday celebrations and reunions with old friends, and sad times with funerals and a lot of questions. On top of all that, we have been bombarded by one storm after the other in the UK as the rainfall has lead to floods in my surrounding area, luckily I live on a hill, and our already bad country lanes being in worse condition than ever. Mother nature has definitely made herself known this month.
With the incessant rain and gusts, most of my free time has been spent indoors catching up with my TV shows, films, and reading. I’m making slow progress on my current read, but I am loving every minute.
Some blogging highlights in February have been my review for Beartown, which is basically like a love letter to this beautiful book, my lord of the rings discussion post, and list of tips to recover from a book hangover. Here is what I’ve been getting up to on the blog in February.
10th: Beartown by Fredrik Backman – 5 Stars
“It’s a story about humanity and the fight to protect the spirit of the community. It’s about finding your voice and the devastating power of silence. It’s ugly, it’s beautiful, it’s raw, and it’s real.”
TV & Film
2nd: TV Talk – Sci-Fi Family Adventure, a Test of Brotherhood, and Scandi-Noir Thriller.
15th: Midnight Movies – Award Winning Blockbusters, the Underdog’s Struggle, and Detective Pikachu
29th: Discussion – The Best Scenes from the Fellowship of the Ring

Finish Muse of Nightmares. I’m really enjoying the book so far. I’m always in awe by Laini Taylor’s writing so it’s just a matter of finding more time to read.
Hopefully, with the weather brightening up I can get outside again. Walking has been part of my routine since I was a kid and the stormy weather has kept me indoors for far too long. Typically, the weather in March is cold but dry, and there’s a freshness in the air that I always love.
I’d like to finish catching up on my shows as well. My mum and I are currently catching up with Vikings Season 6, which is very dramatic and I’m slowly making my way through season 3 of Mr Robot. I want to catch up with both those shows so I can start something new.
On the blog, I’d possibly like to write more discussion posts. I’ve loved writing my post on the best scenes in the lord of the rings, it’s reminded me why I love the films so much, and I’d like to create more discussion posts.
What was the highlight of your February?
Any plans for March?
