Monthly Recap: February 2017
3 Things About My Life This Month
1. Macmillan Audio contacted me to see if I’d be interested in listening to their audiobooks for review.
This is the first for me. If you don’t know this about me I don’t read ARCs. I’ve wrote a post about my reasons here. As some of you know I’ve considered requesting audiobooks for review a while ago, but in the end I haven’t. Now the publisher contacted me and all I have to do is to say yes. I admit I’m tempted to break my own rule.
2. My son caught pottery bug from me.
As you know (or maybe not) pottery is my hobby. The workshop where I take my classes has a program for kids. I registered my oldest son and he enjoyed his classes a lot. It’s such an amazing feeling when your kid loves something close to your heart. Nothing can compare with this shared excitement.
This is his little mouse.
By the way what is the difference between ceramics and pottery? Do these words have the same meaning?
3. February was a month of theatre.
We went to several children’s plays. I especially loved The Bremen Town Musicians. It was an animated musical retelling of tale by the Brothers Grimm. The Bremen Town Musicians are very popular and much-loved in Russia. I loved it as a child and I love it as an adult. My favorite song is Troubadour’s serenade.
My Favorite Books This Month
I loved Never Been Kissed by Molly O’Keefe. 738 Days by Stacey Kade is another book I want to highlight. Despite some issues with the ending I still loved this beautiful romance.
My Favorite Audiobook This Month
The Rosie Project was charming and funny. It’s a delightful chick-lit written by a man.
On my Blog This Month
Actually Julianna Keyes commented on this post and shared some fun facts about the original cover. After reading them I spent ridiculous amount of time staring at the original cover.
3 Posts I want to highlight
1. Nicole at Feed Your Fiction Addiction
2. Angie at Angieville
3. Becky at A Fool’s Ingenuity
3 Things I’m Looking Forward to Next Month
1. Sunny warm weather.
Spring is finally in Moscow. Well at least on calendar. The weather is still windy and cold. I’m sick of winter and I can’t wait to say good-bye to snow and cold.
2. Schedule on blog.
When it comes to blogging I’m “post at the last minute” kind of blogger. I want to try schedule my posts. So far all my attempts to schedule ended up in million unfinished drafts. I want to try more organized approach. March will be more challenging for me and I hope this way I’ll free some time to visit blogs and answer comments on my blog. Last couple of months I’ve been neglecting comments on my posts and I don’t like it.
3. My mom asked me to make a vase for her.
She wants this really big and tall vase, so she can put long-stemmed roses there. So far I haven’t done such big pottery projects. It will be challenging, but I’m excited to try.
That was my February.
