February Wrap Up Post

Posted March 1, 2012 by Kara in Uncategorized / 5 Comments

It’s the end of February, and that means it’s time for another wrap-up post. This is where I talk about my accomplishments and any other bookish stuff that may have occurred during the month of February.

Fortunately for you guys, it’s been a pretty quiet month. I did join up with TLC Book Tours, so I will be expanding the different genres of literature you see on Great Imaginations a little bit. I’m signed up for two book tours to start with, but who knows what will come in the future?

I finished editing two manuscripts in February as well. Neither of those will be published right away, and because of that I can’t really talk about them. I can tell you that they were both very special though. One will be going through the querying process fairly soon, and I wish that writer a ton of luck. She deserves to be published.

March will be a slower month for me. I have only one manuscript to work on this month, and the three posts for the blog tours I am participating in are almost completely ready to go. There will be quite a few giveaways up for grabs on the blog this month. So stay tuned for that.

That’s it really! On to the challenge updates!

For the Debut Author Challenge, I have completed 3 books for the month of February. That is awesome progress for me. That means I am 1/3 of the way to completing the challenge. The books I read are:

~The Cabinet of Earths by Anne Nesbet (3 stars)
~Katana by Cole Gibsen (2 stars)
~The Alchemy of Forever by Avery WIlliams (4 stars)
Clicking on the links takes you to my reviews.

For the TBR Pile Challenge, I only completed 2 books in the month of February. I’m not really happy with this because up until this point I had really been trucking along on this challenge. Then I realized I Was falling behind on my review books, and so I had to put it aside for a little. I am not quitting!! I just have to get caught up on my review books first. I don’t know if I’m going to complete any books for this challenge in March. Anyway, the books I read are:

~Frost by Marianna Baer (3 stars)
~Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake (4 stars)
Clicking on the links takes you to my review of that book.

I did AMAZING on the 50 States Challenge in February. I knocked out some really tough states right at the beginning of 2012 already. I am going to really try hard to finish this challenge because it’s clearly the hardest one I am doing. I completed 6 states in the month of February. They are:

~The Humming Room by Ellen Potter (New York)
~Frost by Marianna Baer (Massachusetts)
~Katana by Cole Gibsen (Missouri)
~The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams (California)
~Guy Langman, Crime Scene Procrastinator by Josh Berk (New Jersey)
~The Night She Disappeared by April Henry (Oregon)
Clicking on the links above takes you to my review for that book.
I ended up reading a total of 13 books in February. Pretty good, and way better than I thought I did. I believe I will be completing a higher number in March because I won’t be as busy editing. So I’m hoping for some huge progress and some great reviews for you guys. 
As always, if you have a wrap-up post you want to tell me about or have me come comment on, leave me the link in the comments. And if you just feel like saying “hi,” that would be great too. Have a great March everyone!!

    Wow! Great job. I only read 12 books. I got 3 out of the way for both my TBR pile challege and the DAC, but none for the Sensational Seconds. I don’t know if I will get any of my TBR ones in March either. I had a bit of a reading slump and got behind on reading so I have to catch up.

    • Thanks. That’s not so bad Amy! I’m trying to make March Netgalley month so I can get caught up on all my review books. So far so good. I’ve gotten through two of them. Then it’s back to the TBR challenge. I might get one book done, but I won’t be able to fully concentrate on that one for a couple months, I bet.
