February Wrap-Up

 February's coming to a close. As it turns out, February's my favorite month: it holds my birthday; during it, the weather is (usually) nice and warm here in Melbourne; and the obsessive compulsive part of me likes that it's exactly four weeks long.

But anyway, there's this month's wrap-up:

This month for the Debut Author Challenge, I read and reviewed The Iron Witch - Karen Mahoney's debut that was released on the 8th. You can see my review here.

Book Of The Month:
A feature inspired by Audrey at holes In My brain, at the end of each month I'll pick the favorite book I read, and feature it as my Book Of The Month.

March's Book Of The Month is When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. Look out for my review, going up on the 3rd.

So that was February in review. How was your month?
