I may not have read a ton, but there are some books I read all in one day, which is a good sign. I really loved most of what I read. The only thing I felt underwhelmed by was Wildlife, which wasn’t bad at all, just not as amazing as I expected from people’s reviews and excitement. Belle wasn’t underwhelming per se, just very different from the film and from what it purports to be about. But it’s interesting all the same.

I’ve been trying to deplete my pile from the library at work, since I feel guilty keeping things for so long, and get through my Edelweiss “pile” on my Kindle, so that informed a lot of my reading. But I also had some last minute omg-I-need-to-read-this-the-second-I-get-it reads, like Fairest, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl and From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess. I was pleased with all of them, and I also got to meet Issa Rae and Justin Simien at an event! So both of those books are signed, and I need to watch the movie, and basically I’m really inspired and happy and pleased with my February reading and purchases, and I lived up to some goals at reading varied things and multiple genres and adult things and teen things and kid things and only bought things by ladies and people of color. I win.
