February Wrap-Up // fun February means less reading

Welcome (back) to the blog! It is hard to believe February flew by so fast. I know it is the shortest month, but still. My friends and I decided this month would be “fun February” so we did our best to do fun things whenever possible. And it was very fun! However, since I was slammed with school and using all my free time to socialize, I did not read as much as I normally do this month.

This is a bit disappointing because I had a pretty ambitious TBR, mostly of books by Black authors, that I wanted to get through. So I definitely did not meet my reading goals, but I will still be looking forward to reading those books! The upside is I did read some really good books this month, and in general I enjoyed them more than the books I read in January. Standouts of this month include Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, Bungleton Green and the Mystic Commandos, and The Personal Librarian. Bungleton Green was a comic strip compilation I read for class and it was honestly super interesting, I encourage everyone to go check it out! It was an antiracist, sci-fi action/adventure comic from the 1940s. Keep reading to hear about everything else I was reading and thinking about this month!
