everywhere in February

What a busy little month I have been having and loving it, of course. I’m really glad to be back in a routine for blogging and I’ve managed not to feel the pressure that I was putting on myself last year, I think switching things up a bit and doing some more creative things has really helped. So here is what has been going on in my little slice of the world…

I managed to get myself back into the swing of writing again, after a bit of a break from it, with the Twittering Tales challenge – to tell a story in 280 characters or less. My contributions this month were…It starts with one word, sweethearts, it’s all fun and games, and dreamland.

For this month’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group post I was talking about my creative endeavours and how that has been affecting my writing.

I joined in on the #writephoto challenge – which is to write in any style you want and as many words as you want about the photo provided. My contributions this month were…swords play, almost perfect, and broken stone.

A book promo for Hunter’s Chase and a Q&A for Hunter’s Revenge both by Val Penny.

I had some fun with the book tag books beginning with w.i.n.t.e.r

Tried to cut down my TBR, even though the number seems to be going up rather than down, with bookish meme down the TBR hole.

Decided to join in on Top 5 Wednesday talking about fictional places I’d take a date.

Books Reviewed

I managed to read a lot of books this month, surprisingly, as ever you can click on the cover to go to the full review.

I actually started my Retellings Reading Challenge, managed to fill two spots on my bingo card!

A Curse So Dark and Lonely

Absolutely loved this book, amazing retelling of Beauty and the Beast, total cliffhanger ending has me desperate for the next book already.

Just For Clicks

A YA debut about the impact of blogging and social media, good but missed out on some of its potential.
