So after January somehow took a million years we’re pretty much done with February already which feels like madness. I feel like I haven’t really stopped this month but I have enjoyed making some space for some new hobbies.
Heartstopper Vol 3 by Alice Oseman. I’m loving this series SO very much and this third volume is a chunky one that I’ve not had time to sit down and read in one sitting for a change which has felt weird but I’m absolutely loving it so far and there have been some fantastic moments in it.
Books I’ve read:
The Unspoken Name by A.K Larkwood
I’ve not had much reading time this month as a lot of other stuff as taken up my time (mainly Dungeons and Dragons I’m not gonna lie) and has it was half term I didn’t think I would get a lot read. I really loved this book though!
Changes from TBR?
Not hugely. I knew I wouldn’t get much reading this month and as I’m currently reading Heartstopper Vol 3, the only thing I haven’t read from this months TBR is Unspeakable but I plan to get to it asap.
Books I’ve brought/received:
The Burning World – I received this from the lovely Jenn at Jenniley.
Cursed – Gifted from Titan Books
Recoil – Gifted from Titan Books
Heartstopper Vol 3 – I received this with my ticket to the Alice Oseman event in London
Maximum Ride – Brought this on a whim at 3am. Hope I like it though!
Shows I’ve seen:
Picard – The newer episodes of these have been AMAZING. I’ve really loved getting to know the characters and I’m a little obsessed with Rios and his plethora of EMH’s.
RWBY – A couple of my online friends were talking about this and I decided to give it a try and AHH I’m so glad they did because I’m absolutely loving it! I love pretty much ALL of the characters and although some of the animation is hilariously hinky in places and some of the writing is really cheesy it’s absolutely my kind of cheese. Not to mention I’m obsessed with all of the outfits and hairstyles and the ‘banter’ is spot on and hilarious. I’m really glad I gave it a go!
Films I’ve seen:
Your Name – Another film recommended by a friend that I decided to give a go and again, I am obsessed. This film is absolutely heartbreaking and beautiful. I sobbed so much watching it (all three times) and I honestly don’t think I’ll ever get over it. It’s already made its way into my list of favourite films.
Games I’ve played:
Pokemon – I’ve continued playing Pokemon Shield this month and it is gorgeous. I’ve not played it in a week or so as I’ve just not had time but I can’t wait to get back to it and hopefully finish all the gyms before Animal Crossing comes out next month!
Stardew Valley – Obviously I’ve been playing Stardew Valley. I’ve been severely neglecting my single player game but in my multiplayer game I’ve started dating Shane and I’m really glad I decided to try building up my friendship and romance with him because his story is so sad but I’m loving watching it progress.
Animal Crossing – I maaay have dipped back into Animal Crossing: New Leaf for a bit this month through sheer frustration of waiting for New Horizons but discovered I didn’t have much to do after playing it so much for so long I’ve done a lot of the things for progression so I spent most of it just fishing and catching up with my favourite villagers.
Alice Oseman Heartstopper Vol 3 Event – I loved going to London for the Heartstopper vol 3 event! I spent my afternoon chilling out and visiting the Science Museum which was lovely and then met some lovely people at the event (Sabina, you’re amazing!) Not to mention the event itself was lovely. I do wish I’d had a better nights sleep beforehand though, not to mention I also lost my Bluetooth headphones!
Painting – I’m not very arty and I can’t draw for the life of me but I’ve been doing some work with acrylic later when I’ve been feeling inspired and I’m happy with a few of the pieces I’ve done. Including a piece inspired by Your Name and one depicting some events that happened in one of my rather emotional sessions of D&D.
Dungeons and Dragons – So I know I play this all the time and this isn’t really new but I have started recording and editing our Monday sessions which tend to be the emotional roller coaster ones. It’s been a lovely distraction when things have been too much and if you wanted to check it out you can find it here.
So that has been the month of February! It’s gone by so fast and I feel like I’ve missed a bunch of stuff but it’s been a good one! How was your February?
