Getting Personal:

January was a pretty busy month for me, and it certainly feels like it has just flown by! The month started off a little bit slow, but then it picked up a few days after New Years. I decided to start volunteering with the youth group at my church. I went to my first meeting of a local adoptive mom’s group that I am hoping will help me feel more at ease with some of the harder parts of the adoption process. I had my monthly tea party and I helped my friend Lori move into her new house!

I went to a book signing for Tamera Alexander’s new book, With This Pledge (which I just started reading yesterday!). She is so sweet, and I am excited to get to do a blog collaboration with her soon!

My February TBR Pile:

Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

The Shadowhunter’s Codex by Cassandra Clare

Pride by Ibi Zoboi

Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew by Sherrie Eldridge

If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo

Daughter of Moloka’i by Alan Brennert

I got a couple of the books from my January TBR pile read this month, so I am just spilling over the ones I didn’t read into February. I am also going to try to start having a parenting book in the rotation each month.


How many books did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I read? What about the books on my TBR for February? Let me know down in the comments! 

Love and happy reading,

Author:

Hello!! My name is Whitney, and I love books! I spend a huge amount of time reading (way more time than I should, if we are being perfectly honest!) I live in Nashville with my husband and my two dogs, who are a total mess and generally are my reading buddies. I will probably share them with you, too. I also love to sing, play guitar, hike, play The Sims, watch tons of YouTube videos, and drink creamy tea and coffee.

  1. I have got to read The Night Circus … I’m so behind!

    Also, I am so glad you loved From Lukov with Love, I really enjoyed that one, too. I can’t remember, did you listen to the audiobook? It was really good because it was a duet narration.
