March TBR(February Wrap-Up)

February has been  a great month for me. I finally learned how to drive. It has been a slow journey and I went through days of anxiety. However, my driving is getting better . Today I was able to overtake multiple trucks(the very slow ones) on my way to work. This is  big deal for me since overtaking has been my biggest issue. My heart still beats so fast when I have to do it but I am getting it with time and practice.  Also today for the first time, I was also able to park  well and on my first try, woop woop! I hope it wasn’t a fluke though since parking has been my second nightmare.


Secondly, I have made so much progress with my thesis. I completed and submitted the first two chapters. I am currently working on the revisions as I prepare to defend my proposal.

I now focus on sharing my reviews and giving ‘love’ to those who give it back instead of trying to interact with way too many people yet half of them never even visit my blog. I post whenever I have something to share without feeling the pressure to do it regularly to keep the blog ‘alive’I also stopped worrying  about stats. In short, blogging is now fun.

Finally, I now have over 800 followers. I hit  804 yesterday. Last year at a time like this, I  had 48 followers so  the blog has really grown. Thank you all for the support. It has been an amazing experience!



In matters books, I had mix fortunes. I read some really great books but I also had some not so good reads. I will only mention my favorite ones.

I am super excited about my March TBR. I have finally gotten to 81% on Netgalley and my ARCs for this month are few so I hope to read some of my own books too. This is progress for me because  I have been reading way too many ARCs and neglecting my own books for a couple of months now.
