Stacking the Shelves & Wrappin’ It Up February 2015

Stacking the Shelves

Books:

I did really well controlling the purchases this month! I did however receive some lovely gifts for my Birthday and won a competition or two!

February 2015 Stacking the Shelves

Brandie @ Brandie is a Book Junkie was kind enough to gift me Hopeless and Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover, I’ve already read them both, and the Finding Cinderella novella, so expect reviews soon!

Stef @ Caught Read Handed made me squeal with a beautiful copy of I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios, which I’ve heard such amazing reviews for.

Kate Tarte hosted a giveaway and I won! I picked The Bane Chronicles as my prize and I’m so looking forward to finding out more about Magnus Bane!

I got a Waterstones giftcard from a friend for Christmas, and decided it was time to finally spend it. I struggle so much with picking books to buy in a bookstore, because I don’t want to pick something I won’t like! I finally went with Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell – I’ve heard really great things about this book and love indulging in a little self-development 😉

Movies and TV Shows:

I took a couple of days off work for my Birthday this month (check out my Birthday Tag and Giveaway!) and spent some of the time watching Gossip Girl and season 6 of The Vampire Diaries – I can’t wait for more episodes!

Wrappin’ It Up!

This month I also shared some great bookish deals and discounts, took part in the Loony Literate Tag and the Book Blogger Love-A-Thon questionnaire, signed up to the 2015 Discussion Challenge, posted a (S)He Said post on Sex in Erotic Fiction, launched a new feature called Babes and Books and created a Birthday Tag that includes two chances to win in a giveaway hosted by me!

My most popular posts in February (except for TTT posts) were my Birthday Tag and Giveaway and the Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer and Exclusive Images!

My ONE YEAR BLOGOVERSARY is coming up in March (wut?!) so keep an eye out for exciting giveaways for it! February started shakily and ended up ending very nicely, thanks very much. So, how was your February?

    I can’t wait for you reviews of Hopeless/Losing Hope. I really hope you loved them! And I’m anxious to see what you think when you finish I’ll Meet You There.

    I didn’t realize it until last week, but my one year blog anniversary is in March, too! I should probably do something for it. 🙂

    Pretty good month you had. xx
