February in Review

Despite only being 28 days long, February felt like a very long month for me. I hurt my back at the end of January and spent all of February recovering (and I'm still recovering). It meant very little time on the computer most days and getting behind on everything but reading. My third novel, WAITING FOR THE STORM, is due out a month from today and I'm still going over notes from my beta readers and making changes. I had hoped to have it out to reviewers by now but it just didn't work out that way. Hopefully soon! Speaking of which, if you're a blogger and would like to review the book, please send me an email (irishstar(at)hotmail(dot)com) and when it's ready I'll send you an e-copy.

How was your February? How many books did you read? Are you making progress on your reading challenges?


  1. You're doing really good on the Book Bingo! Good for you! I might have to sign up for the Random House one next year ... it looks like fun!

    Hope you have a good March!

  2. You are really getting somewhere with your reading! That's awesome. :) I'm hoping once April comes I'll be getting back on track. I may spend part of the weekend reading in between all my other projects. :P

  3. Your reading month makes mine look horrible! I'm glad you got to read so much even if it was because of a bad back. :(

  4. It's so frustrating when things take longer than you expect them too. Hope you can get it tackled soon. And finish recovering! Lame back injuries. :(

  5. I hope your back is feeling better, Marie! And that March is better. :)

  6. I only read 11 books this month. Between it being a shorter month, and just needing to take a breather, plus getting used to blogging at WordPress, February kicked my butt! I'm hoping to get to around 15 this month but who knows.

    So psyched for your Sarah event! :)


Thanks for visiting Ramblings of a Daydreamer! I love hearing what you have to say, and I appreciate every single comment. I hope to see you here again soon! ♥
