February was a weird short month where Merijn went to his grandparents for a week and husband had his vacation a week later (this week actually). It went a little up and down for me personally. Depression is no joke. But at least we had some Spring weather. Now March will bring back the snow, lol. (I joke, I hope.)

⌘ My whole semi-hiatus thing didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to (and only messed with my stats). I honestly couldn’t find the motivation to fix the broken photos. It is so much and boring work. I did end up doing some when Merijn was at my parents for a few days. But now I need to do more. Meh.
⌘ Also photobucket was being stupid with new rules for free accounts, when trying to delete a sub album I deleted all the photos of the whole blog album and I couldn’t download whole albums anymore. I ended up cutting my losses and deleted my account.
⌘ This month was also a bit hard with the group therapy course. I was awake a lot of nights or I dreamed weird things. I rarely remember my dreams/nightmares but now I did so that is a bit weird… But apparently it is also a good thing in relation to the therapy so yeay.
⌘ My friends twins turned two. Yeay~
⌘ On the up I worked ahead to about May and for my bookshelf tours I’d like to do an intro post with a FAQ. If you have any questions pleave leave them in the linked form. I’m probably going to bug you guys about this in the next few months in quite a few blog posts #sorrynotsorry
⌘ I won a book from The Reading Hobbit’s giveaway. ❤
⌘ Cogheart (The Cogheart Adventures 1) by Peter Bunzl // ARC
⌘ Down Among the Stick and Bones / Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire
⌘ The Ingenious by Darius Hinks // ARC
⌘ Second Star (Neverland Transmissions 1) by J.M. Sullivan // ARC
Dancing out of January 2019 / Best of the Bunch // January 2019 / What Could Possibly be My Favorite – This Is My Genre, Tell Me Yours / Six Reasons to Pick Up Sorcerer to the Crown NOW / Book Haul #41 – The First Two Months of 2019 / Books I’d Like to Get From the Library in 2019
⌘ The Passage / Season 1 / Ep 3-6
They are drawing it out a little now…
⌘ Zoo / Season 2 / Ep 5-7
I mean, it just keeps getting weirder…
⌘ Daphne & Velma / Movie
This is a weird prequel to Scooby-Doo where Daphne and Velma met each other before the others (so no scooby here). It really doesn’t fit in with any of the other live action movies so that is just weird. It was cheesy, awkward and I laughed hard. Its not a good movie but it did have some good bits.
⌘ Aquaman / Movie
While Merijn was at my parents husband and I went to one of the last viewings of Aquaman here in the theatres and we really liked it. Jason Momoa ❤ But seriously, that kissing scene ruined a lot. Like who kisses for 30 seconds on the battle field???
⌘ Beautiful Creatures / Movie
I was bored. This was free on our On Demand so I watched it. Sometimes I do watch cheesy romance things lol. I never read the book though.
⌘ Ready Player One / Movie
Another one I found free on our On Demand and where I haven’t read the book (lost my interest because Ernest Cline bleh). It wasn’t too great to be honest. There were only a few good moments for such a big movie.
⌘ Aentee from Read at Midnight designed some pretty phone wallpapers inspired by The Gilded Wolves.
⌘ Jackie B. from Death by Tsondoku talks about YA not being a genre.
⌘ Ely from Of Wonderland asks where she fits in the book community?
⌘ Greg from Book Haven talks about cloning.
⌘ Michelle from The Writing Hufflepuff shared some blogs to love for Valentine’s Day.
⌘ Kaleena from Reader Voracious has been doing the Read Around the Globe feature and this month I answered some questions.
⌘ Rachel from Rec-It Rachel sorted some books into Hogwarts Houses.
⌘ Fadwa from Word Wonders created a book rec list based on Emoji.
⌘ And Imyril from x+1 continues with the rec list for my reading challenge. You can find part two here!
⌘ Sue from Boekenz let me show my bookshelves on her blog.
⌘ Hailey in Bookland did a relaxing book shelf tour.
⌘ March is going to be the month I focus on some of my middle grade as you can see from the photo above. Certainly these. I am also finishing The Darkest Legacy (my buddy read with La La in the Library) and The True Queen. At the end of the month I had a hard time focusing and I wanted to take my time with The True Queen. Other than that I have one more review copy and a bunch of other books like Legendary
⌘ I also really need to work more on fixing the broken photos. I am on my way with the reviews. I have all the photos uploaded somewhere new and now I just need to replace the broken links.
This monthly wrap up will be linked up with the monthly one by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction. This so we can blog hop to each others wrap ups easier.
