Monthly wrap-up: February 2011 & ATU giveaway winner

First up, in February I had my first book giveaway for a copy of Across the Universe by Beth Revis and some signed author swag.

The randomizer chose the winner: Sarah T.

Congrats Sarah! The book is on it’s way to you.

Thanks everyone for entering the giveaway and look for more giveaways in the future!

Next, onto the Monthly wrap-up: February

February was a busy month filled with some sickness and traveling, but I managed to read 9 books this month:

I read 1 audiobook, 3 adult fiction novels, 4 YA Dystopian books, and 1 YA fiction.

I bought a few books, but mainly tried to use the library this month. I’m surprised to see I did not read any books on my kindle this month. I have plenty of kindle books to get through so I will need pick up the kindle in March.

    Wow I’m still amazed at how many books you get read in a month! I love reading, but I’m fortunate if I finish one novel in a month.

    1. I fit in reading when I can and listening to audiobooks helps too. Thanks for stopping by!

    I read Lover’s Dictionary this month too. My friend and I have been thinking through it a bit. I don’t want to post a spoiler though but I’m curious as to other people’s interpretation. Just started Delirium but I have a few other things open as well so I don’t know if that’s what I’ll finish first.

    1. I’m curious about your thoughts regarding Lover’s Dictionary. Hope you enjoy Delirium. Lately I have been balancing a few books at a time too. I never thought I would be able to read that way, but somehow it works. Happy reading!

    Its amazing that you’ve read so many books! Congrats! 🙂

    Also, another amazing thing is that of the 9 books you’ve read, I’ve had my heart set on reading 6 of those. I am currently reading “The Oracle of Stamboul” (and loving it so far), and I’m REALLY looking forward to getting my hands on “The Fates Will Find Their Way”, “Delirium”, “Grace”, “The Unidentified” and “The Lover’s Dictionary” (especially the first 2 out of the 5).

    Looking forward to your other posts!!! 🙂

    1. So glad you are enjoying The Oracle of Stamboul- that is a special book. Thanks so much for stopping by – happy reading!
