February Wrap Up (2017)

February has been a very strange reading month. I’ve felt very patchwork about my reading – it’s been little bits here and there instead of longer dedicated chunks of time, it’s been reading several books at once, it’s been nonfiction and novels and poetry and short stories on the go at once. I’ve read a lot of great things this month, but it felt different.

There are a few books I’ve chosen not to review this month, mostly on the considerations of time. I’ve been posting less frequently this year so far, because I am busier, and so I’m being a bit more selective about which things I do review.
