I was going to come back from my blogging break this month, but then my cat died, which made it really hard to write any sort of post. But hey, I’m back now. I didn’t read much this month, but I will admit that I did acquire quite a lot of bookish things. I’m also working on catching up with ARCs right now because I’m very behind with those.
In case you didn’t notice, I had to change my font. 🙁 PicMonkey switched it so now you have to pay for the font I used before so I switched to this new one.

What I Did
So this month was going really well, until it wasn’t. My sweet little kitty, Mittens, was put down on February 15 and I miss her so so much. She was only ten months old and I had gotten her back in September. It was so unexpected and fast. I can’t put into words just how much I miss her. She was the perfect and most amazing cat ever. <3
On a much happier note, I opened up my bookmark shop, GlitteringReads, this month. I’m also going to start volunteering at my local animal shelter soon. I’ve been a few times this month and I had so much fun getting to play with the puppies and especially all the kitties. Oh and I also just wanted to say how much I’ve fallen in love with Dear Evan Hansen. The cast recording released this month and it’s absolutely amazing. I definitely recommend checking it out.
Overall, I had an alright month. Some really great things happened, but at the same time, something very terrible happened. But instead of focusing on the bad, I’m excited to say that I have a lot of posts planned for this month. I’m working on bringing lots of new bookmark designs to the shop as well. So, here’s to a better month. 🙂
How many books did you read this month? What was your favorite? What was the highlight of your month?
[…] February Wrap-Up was the first post I posted this month on the fifth *cries* It’s basically just this post […]
I’m sorry about your cat. 🙁
I’m glad you liked A Darker Shade of Magic. I’ve had A Gathering of Shadows on my shelf for ages and just haven’t had the time, but now the last one’s come out and I’m feeling impatient.
Aw, sorry about your kitten, Adalyn.
Congrats on the shop! That’s always a fun thing. 🙂
I know I already said this, but I’m so sorry about your kitten dying. I can’t imagine how much that must hurt. I’m glad to see you’re doing much better now!
I’m so glad to see you loved ADSOM! And I’m eternally jealous of the fact that you got them in hardcover! I still have one of them in paperback and I hate it!
So sad to hear about your cat – that a awful *huge hugs* but at least you will always have those precious memories. But yay for helping out at the shelter – hopefully that will help you feel better, along with reading all those amazing books. Happy to hear you enjoyed a darker shade of magic, I just finished that one last week too 🙂
I’m really sorry to hear what happened to your kitty. I hope things get easier for you. I haven’t gone through what you have but If you ever need a chat, I’m here. But omg opening at bookmark shop is so exciting! I will definitely have to check it out! Ahh you bought so many good books this month.
Omg I’m so sorry about your cat. That’s truly terrible and I can totally understand not wanting to blog for a while with that. But congrats on opening your bookmark shop!! That’s amazing!! I hope things get easier with remembering Mittens soon tho.
I’m so so so sorry to hear about your kitten. It’s such a shame, especially because she was so young – sending all the hugs and love to you and your family right now ♥ I’m glad you enjoyed ADSOM! I want to reread it soon!
I’m so sorry about your kitty, Adalyn. I hope you’re able to find some peace of mind soon, and I hope working at the shelter helps a little bit! You bought some wonderful books this month; also, I’m so glad to see you liked ADSOM! One of my favorite series. I have also been listening to the Dear Evan Hansen cast recording lots this month– SO good.
I’m so sorry to hear about your cat! I hope that volunteering at the animal shelter involves some of the best parts of having a cat, though I know that nothing can really replace Mittens. I’m really glad you liked Dear Evan Hansen! I’ve heard so many good things about it, so I’m gonna have to listen to it soon.
