Wrap Up

Dancing out of February 2022

February was such a weird month overal. I don’t know how I even feel about it. Between storms and the start of a war there have also been my own troubles. And I ended up not reading too much this month. I hit 8 because I read 2 books on the last day of the month, lol.

The Numbers

In February I read a total of 8 books which makes the total of 2022 22 books read.
Of the 8 books 8 books were fantasy .
Out of the 28 days of February I read 7 days which amounted to a total of 2367 pages.
The rating average of this month was 4.3

  3. Wild Sign (Alpha & Omega 6) by Patricia Briigs | 3,5 stars | ARC

⌘ Remember how I said that my psychologist stopped and I had to get used to a new one that just came to the practice? Well they stopped on the last day of January and I got completely thrown by an email with a new appointment with another psychologist. It sucked so much and I had a panic attack that day. I’ve since settled into the new setting but it wasn’t really what I needed at the start of this year.

⌘ Another thing I didn’t really need was how the booster I got at the end of January messed up my menstrual cycle. Thanks a lot.

⌘ Three storms hit our country within 6 days so that was fun. There has been a lot of damage to the forest and trees. I did drive through the second storm with Merijn to go to my parents. It wasn’t that bad. It was do able as long as you are careful.

⌘ Merijn spend a week at my parents during his early vacation this year. Which was good for me to have a bit of a break to just settle with some of the revelations from therapy and some of the appts we’ve had around Merijn.

⌘ Merijn is doing pretty well at school. The preperation to writing they are giving isn’t always easy for him but he is so good with numbers.

⌘ Winter Olympics | Speed Skating | Shorttrack
Obviously I watched all the speed skating matched throughout the 2,5 weeks. It was over so soon!

⌘ Dr. Pol | Season 11 | Ep 1-3
A new season of Dr Poll started so of course I had to watch that.

⌘ The Canterville Ghost | Ep 1-4 | Completed
I finally caught the episodes of The Canterville Ghost in a marathon which was fun. I thought it wrapped up a bit too quickly but I loved the quirky bits of it.

⌘ The Space Between Us | Movie
I finally got around to watching The Space Between Us completely. It is a heart breaking story.

  1. February was a weird month for me too. Sorry to hear about all the storms and your experience with your psychologist. I just started reading Crowbones, so it looks like you’re rereading the first two books in the series?

    1. Hopefully March will be better for both us!
      Yeah I did reread the first two world of the others books in preparation. I still haven’t gotten my pre-order. I cry.

  2. Glad to see you enjoyed The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea, I’m excited to try that one! I’m sorry to hear about your experience with the new psychologist, that seems handled poorly on their part, but glad to hear you’re settled in better now. Those storms hit here as well, they were pretty creepy, but overall damage was still minimal in my neighborhood. Hope you’ll have an amazing March!

  3. Dat van die psycholoog begrijp ik toch niet, hoor. Zij zouden nu toch net de mensen zijn die weten dat dit niet zo hoort…

    Ah, de stormen…Hier in België ook last van gehad. Bij mij is de omheining omgewaaid (compleet aan de basis af gekraakt) en kreeg ik pardoes het tuinhuis van een paar huizen verder op mij terras, waardoor al mijn tuinmeubels die ik daar had vast gesjord gewoon verbrijzeld zijn :-S
    Het kon zeker erger, maar was toch verschieten!

    Dankjewel voor de link.! 😀

    1. Ja en toch gebeurd het echt vaker. Ik hoor zoveel verhalen waarbij je zou denken dat een therapeut of psycholoog zou snappen dat dat echt niet kan en toch gebeurd het.

      Oh jeetje! Het kan ergers ja maar leuk is toch anders. Compleet verbrijzeld vind ik toch wel heftig.
