February is over! Despite it being a shorter month than usual, I had a very productive month in terms of reading and watching television. It’s started getting colder now than it has all winter, which is disappointing to me, but alas! Into the true second winter we go.

Books I Read

This was the month of reading about lost 20 year olds. Four of the books were very much New Adult (despite that no longer being a legitimate genre), and I loved each and every one of them!

  • Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, by Gabrielle Zevin (5 stars)
  • The Light We Carry, by Michelle Obama (4 stars)
  • Less, by Andrew Sean Greer (3 stars)
  • Really Good, Actually, by Monica Heisey (5 stars)
  • Maame, by Jessica George (5 stars)
  • Not So Perfect Strangers, by LS Stratton (4 stars)
  • All This Could Be Different, by Sarah Thankam Mathews (4 stars)

TV I Watched

The entire internet was rewatching Girls this year, so I joined by watching it for the very first time. I’m also doing my first ever watch of Game of Thrones and enjoying Netflix’s new reality show Perfect Match.

  • Girls (Seasons 3-6)
  • Game of Thrones (Seasons 1-4)
  • Perfect Match

Movies I Watched

In terms of movies, I definitely could have done better. I only watched three, and one of them, Found Family, was a short film. For some reason I just wasn’t feeling inspired by anything despite starting many movies that I ultimately stopped partway through.

  • Your Place or Mine (3.5 stars)
  • Found Family (4.5 stars)
  • All in my Family (5 stars)

Reviews You Can Use

Sometimes, we publish reviews long after we actually consume the material. Below is a list of all of the reviews I published this month, in case you want to read some reviews right now.

Off the Internet

It was a short month this February, and that means I didn’t really do much. I started off the month visiting my girlfriend, but other than that don’t have anything to report!
