February 2016 Wrap-Up

FebWU

I think I once again did very well in terms of reading this month! I aimed for seven and read six – not all of them were on my TBR, but all in all I am VERY happy with the outcome. Tomorrow’s TBR will be massive and probably not realistically conquerable, but I will try anyway. So, here is what I went for last month!

24723317   24885790   26064760   17234659   27015414   Morning Star (Red Rising, #3)

Additionally, I have also read:

So, I’ve been at my new job for a month now! Jobiversary! I was surprised by how few books we have, but whatever! I am less tempted to buy them and that’s a good thing. We do, however, have a ginormous collection of magazines and I am still not familiar with all that we have on stock. Generally, I am starting to get the hang of it (as I should after a month), but I am still anxious whenever I close up alone or have to answer questions by customers I don’t know the answer to. Also, handling money is kind of scary hahaha But all is well! My mum keeps telling me that it is just a job, and not my life and therefore I shouldn’t put too much importance on it. I know that! Now my brain needs to catch up …

Some of you may already know this, but I went to a concert this month! What, me? YES! I used to hate concerts – all the people, the constant noise, the sweat, the pushing – I get queezy just thinking about it. I get that you want to move to the music, listen to it on full volume, see the artist up close. All that I understand utterly and completely, but I don’t like all the other people being there as well. Does that make sense? But my mum got me seat tickets for Hozier with Rhodes as opening act and it was pure perfection! You can head over to my Instagram account for blurry pictures and short snippets of the songs!

  1. Lock and Mori has an interesting cover and the ones for Firebird trilogy or what it is that are amazing. I’ve been wanting to read A Thousand Pieces of You for a long time. Ohhh congrats in your job!!
    My wrap up is coming out tomorrow and there I talk a bit about the books I read 🙂

    • Lock and Mori was awesome! It was a teenage version of Sherlock with a female Moriarty as narrator. Very cool in my opinion!
      A Thousand Pieces of You was at first a little disappointing, because it wasn’t really what the blurb had said, but I still liked it. Ten Thousand Skies Above You was even better though!

  2. SOOO many books, you read a lot, despite work, that’s awesome. And YAY for our buddy reads, once again, loved it! 😀 I don’t know how you manage to keep up posting that constantly while working, it’s crazy, it’s awesome, but crazy, haha :p
    And happy jobiversary!! It’s the beginning, but it’s great if you’re finding it okay! How are your collegues? I hope you’ll feel less stressed about everything, but it’s normal not to know all of the books and magazines and stuff, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to do so, and I tried both times I interned at bookshops, haha! 🙂

  3. Happy Jobiversary! 😀 It would have been a Jobiversary for me too but I had to quit when I realized I was being treated as a slave and the boss was gonna put me through hell to try and not pay my wages –‘
    Your reading went very well despite work, congrats! 🙂

  4. Hahahaha just thinking about handling money while people are staring at you is making me nervous! I’m sure you will get use to it though.
    I’ve read Splintered a while a go and I really liked it, I should really get back into that trilogy.
    There’s not a lot of Maven in Glass Sword but the plot twist at the end makes it worth it 🙂
