February Wrap-Up

10:44 AM



Here we are again! The second monthly recap, which I think I'm going to do consistently now. 

Lots of exciting things happened this month! The responses from you guys on basically everything were overwhelming, and we've added lots of new followers to the barricade - thanks so much, guys! You've been a huge encouragement this month and I don't know what I would do without you besides have more time to go procrastinate or something. You're what keeps this blog running and I really, really appreciate it. 


Let's look at what happened this February: 



All the love made me feel Caesar Flickerman-level fabulous. You all deserve hugs for the comments and such. 



  • I'm about 3/4 of the way done with my first-draft WIP, Havard! *cheers* 
  • Pariah underwent a lot of editing, drafting, and plotting this month, even if I didn't actively write in it. Seriously, a LOT of editing went on. I'm hoping I'll be done with this draft this month, though...and soon, the search for betas begins! *winkwink* 
  • My short story project, A Year of Short Stories, has gotten a lot of love already. I'm kind of overwhelmed. Due to being sick I don't have one this week...but normal activities there should return soon. 
  • I got a Wattpad account, so y'all can see my writings. If you follow me I'll follow you and all that fun stuff. 





I read 18 books this month - three more than last month's record! I had a little less luck finding good books, but oh well.


Favorite Book: Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (Huge, epic fantasy. SO WORTH IT.) 

Least Favorite Book: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (Vapid. Disturbing romance. Basically cheesy X-Men.) 

Find me on Goodreads! We can talk books all day, if you'd like. 





Some (tentative) plans for March: 

Here's to March! Let's make it as awesome as February.

  1. I can hardly believe Feburary is over already! It's crazy. You maxed out your library card? That's awesome. :D I wish I had a library card.

    1. Right? The months are flying by lately, I swear. xD
      Granted, the card at the library I usually frequent doesn't have a very large limit, but still. xD I think I abuse the privilege of having it.

  2. You did so much this February! I've been having a bit of trouble finding good books to read, but oh well, hoping to hit the library sometime soon. Hahah, can't wait for the last post you mentioned for March, sounds interesting :)

    1. Oh, I know that feeling...Goodreads has been a lifesaver, haha.
      Thanks! It's going up tomorrow, actually...I'm kind of excited about it.

  3. :D Oh, thanks for the mention! :) It's cool that you liked the Twilight post AND that you're participating in #FanMonth. :D

    I love the review—I really did like the MBTI posts and I'm really looking forward to the letter to introverts, and your post on respecting other people's reading opinions was awesome. :D

    I can't wait to see what March brings—keep up the awesome work!

    1. Thanks! It was a fun month, especially with all the Myers-Briggs stuff. :)

  4. Awesome, I found you on Wattpad! Looking forward to stalking your stories :) Absolutely loved your February posts, so great work on that. (MBTIs are so fascinating, no?)

    Hope to see you around Twitter with #FanMonth; this is going to be so fun!

    1. Huzzah! I followed you back, so I can do some stalking as well. (It certainly is fascinating - I've loved getting to spend so much time on it :P)

  5. You had a much better reading month than me. I only read THREE BOOKS because school completely sucked all my time away. Hopefully I'll have a better reading month for March. I'm so glad you liked The Way of Kings. I hope to read it someday because fat books are just really awesome. Also, Fahrenheit 451 is AH-MAZING. That was a reread for you, right? I must reread it soon.

    1. Ah, yeah...to be fair, three or four of those books were graphic novels, so they were short little things. I had more time than I thought I would, and I was kind of determined to beat last month's record. xD
      YOU NEED TO READ WAY OF KINGS. It was soooooo good, haha. I loved it a lot. I've read Fahrenheit 451 twice now, and I was totally blown away this second time, paying more attention to it. Just...wow, his writing.

  6. Umm. How do you find time, Aimee? TELL ME THE SECRET! *steals fractions of time away from you with a maniacal laugh*
    Anyways... I look forward to the extroverted letter. It'll be an interesting read.
    What is the max on library cards these days? When I was little it was a hundred books, but I'm assuming that has changed by now...

    1. Haha! I'm actually not sure...my writing suffered some, definitely. And I had a light month in terms of schoolwork, thank goodness. *nervous look at March schoolwork*
      Yay! I'm excited about it too - here's hoping it doesn't offend anyone. xD
      As far as I know it's still generally around 100, but the library I frequent often has the limit at 15. Sigh.

    2. Yeah... Schoolwork is a struggle for me. I can't wait for summer. :p
      Oh. *scolds library*

  7. I found Shatter Me a bit disturbing as well, to be honest. The MBTI were awesome! And I'm all for maxing out library cards!

    I can't wait for your extrovert letter!

    1. I'm glad...so many people loved it, and I was a little confused by that, because...eh. *shrugs*
      Thanks! I'm excited to see what you think!

    1. Hello, welcome to the madness! xD
      I'm glad you learned something new! All that Myers-Briggs stuff can be fascinating to get into, yeah? I'm glad you liked the guest post, too. I had a ton of fun putting it together.
      Thanks for reading!

  9. So I'd been taking a break from blogging (I take them quite frequently, actually) and I just noticed that YOU MENTIONED ME. Ahem. Anyways, I'm super glad you liked my post! :)

    The first time I read Shatter Me, I really liked the writing style, and I think that's the main reason why I rated it so highly. The more I thought about it after reading it, the more I realized how much I didn't like the romance.

    I have read your short stories! And I love them. I think my favorite is C'est La Vie. (Yeah, I dig creepy stuff.) Can't wait to read more :P

    1. Yes, haha! I really loved that post so it was only fair to give a shout-out. :)

      I liked the writing style, too...it was the only redeemable part of the book for me, haha. But the romance was a little bit too...creepy, let's say, for my taste. And Warner. Ugh.

      Aw, thanks! C'est La Vie has been my favorite to write, definitely. I'll have another up on Saturday!
