February might be the shortest month of the year, but in 2019 it’s sure felt like the longest. It dragged and dragged and dragged, and I’m so glad that it’s March now and I can start looking forward to lovely things like Spring, Easter, my birthday, and my next trip home!

Favourite Book This Month
A toughie – I liked lots of books this month, but didn’t love any enough to five-star them. Have Sword, Will Travel nabs it, because it’s fun, fresh, and I have the sequel ready to read already. Knights! Dragons! Magic! Danger!
Least Favourite Book This Month
The Marble Collector. Generally I quite like Cecelia Ahern, and I have to admit it was surprising and refreshing to listen to an audiobook with very clearly Irish narrators. But overall, this didn’t really spark any great feelings in me, so it becomes my least favourite this month solely for reasons of forgettableness.
Favourite cover art
I think this month it has to go to the spectacular cover art of Crown of Feathers. Those colours! The detail in that art! How forgotten the rider looks, peeking over the wing of the phoenix!
And… phoenixes big enough to ride on! What’s not to love!?
I have two nieces who were both born in 2018, and every day is a new adventure of seeing them grow and learn things. I’m really looking forward to my next trip home, so I can see for myself how much has changed!
