It’s a few days late, but Happy Valentine’s to all of you! I know, I’m always late when it comes to posting celebratory stuff. Forgive me, but I’ve been crazy busy the past week and this week.

February Reading Plans

20200921_104406_0000

January turned out to be a better reading month for me than December did. I was able to read five books and really enjoyed all of them. In my January Reading Plans post, I mentioned that I’ve been undergoing quite a number of lab tests for my medical condition. I now got the result of the lab test and it’s all good. I still need to have it checked and monitored every 6 months, though, just to make sure that there are no other problems relating to it. I’m so happy and grateful that it all turned out okay!

Anyways, in February, I plan to read two romance books to celebrate the month of love. I’ve already started with the first one which is The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang and I am about 60 pages in. I can’t say much about it yet, but I’m really enjoying it so far. I know haven’t completed my reading plans in the previous months, but I would still like to make a TBR. Continue reading
