February Recap | Books & Ballet & Donald Trump. You Know. The Usual.

    

  • Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes. Delicious drama? Check. Perfection on the technical level? Not even close. ★★★☆☆
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. SO MUCH HYPE I CAN NOT AVOID IT. Yes, I was disappointed. Yes, I am saddened. It was all satisfactory, but I was never blown away. ★★★☆☆
  • Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This book made me finish an ENTIRE BOX OF TISSUES. ★★★★☆

  

  • The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry. Meh. This book was a mushroom. ★★☆☆☆
  • Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. This book dragged on…BUT. THEN. MAGIC. It was scrumptious. It had its faults, sure, but don’t we all. ★★★★☆

In Total: 5 books. ONLY FIVE. I blame this on all the horrendous books I DNF’d. Dear books, stop slumpifying me. Thanks.

My Favorite:

Bookish Characters for President!

Why? Because I got to mock Donald Trump, obviously. Mocking pleases me, being the disgusting potato I am.

In total: 12 posts. Not too shabby, friends. Not too shabby.
  
Things that happened to happen:

  • My improv group began and finished our traveling performances. We rocked. Btw.
  • Rehearsals began for the spring ballet show of The Odessey. It’s AMAZING. Probably my favorite. Including the Nutcracker. FOR MY RICK RIORDIAN-Y FRIENDS: One of my parts is being a lotus-eater. For some reason the setting isn’t a modern-day casino with Percy Jackson. Heaven knows why.
  • I went swing dancing. For the first time. I attempted to channel my inner Gene Kelly and am 83% I failed. So.

What was your favorite read this month and can you please give me a food comparison? Thanks a bunches!

              1. OMG, DONALD TRUMP IS JUST PISSING ME OFF.
                It never ceases to amaze me how far he’s getting when he’s obviously speaking crap.
                I’ve heard heaps of hype around Six of Crows as well. I haven’t read about it but you finding it kind of mediocre, is kind of giving me doubts.

              2. I only read 5 books as well! I blame school and A Thousand Nights. I would definitely fail at swing dancing, since I fail at all kinds of dancing 😂 Such a shame that the setting for the ballet show isn’t a modern day casino with Percy Jackson though 😦 I think you need to throw the PJ books at them to give them some ideas 😉

              3. Becca! What a fantastic month February seemed to be for you. 5 BOOKS IS GREAT, LIKE SERIOUSLY I ONLY READ TWO BOOKS THIS MONTH AND IM SOBBING. I’m a disgrace to the bookish world! 😭
                Ooh and swing dancing sounds fun!

              4. That’s cool that you went swing dancing! I’m so uncoordinated but I really wanna try out different dances and see if dancing might actually be my thing haha and I just posted a review of Me Before You! I gave it a 4 stars too and surprisingly I did cry o.o
