Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2020

Happy February, friends!! Love is in the air, and the weather is finally warming up! This month flew by for me, but I actually enjoyed it a lot. πŸ’•

TIFFANY’S LIFE 🌺

In terms of school, most of February has been fairly calm with a few quizzes and assignments, but by the time this post is up (since I’m writing this ahead of time), I’ll have gone through the last week of February where I have 1 midterm, 2 take-home exams, and 2 assignments. ✏️ Hopefully, future Tiffany survived and everything is going well!

Some exciting things this month? P.S. I Still Love You came out which was a defining moment of the month and which also reignited my baking hobby, so I baked brownies, red velvet cupcakes, and banana bread. 🍰 (see: brownie recipe & banana bread recipe) I also traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for a weekend for a conference which was SUPER FUN!! πŸ‘βœˆοΈ I hope I get the chance to visit again soon.

BOOKS I READ πŸ“š

This has been such a great start to the year!! I decided to up my Goodreads Reading Challenge from 50 books to 100 books, and I finished 11 books this month which makes 32 books this year so far!! I’ve been reading a lot for personal enjoyment and really enjoying all the books I’ve picked up this month.

One of my absolute favorite reads was Anna K: A Love Story by Jenny Lee which is the March Book of the Month for subtle asian book club! I also picked up a few romance novels this month for something ~feel good~ to get me through my exam week which was super enjoyable too. I’d definitely 10/10 recommend Tessa Dare books. ❀️

  3. Wow your end of the month sounds super busy – good luck with everything! How do you manage to read so much please share your wisdom – I only ended up finishing 2 books but I started a bunch so hopefully they’ll get finished in March. I didn’t get to finish Loveboat, Taipei in February but I’m super fingers crossed hoping that I’ll get to Anna K for SABC πŸ˜€

  5. I’m so glad to hear that you had a good month! February was also a light month for me in terms of quizzes and tests, but I am heading up on three midterms this week before I am released for spring break. It’s awesome that you read so many books this month! I also think what you’re doing with the subtle asian book club is wonderful. I really want to read Always & Forever, Lara Jean (I need to finish that series!). I read Anna K recently, and the author’s note at the end especially made me appreciate it so much more. I hope you have a lovely March! πŸ™‚

  12. I’m so happy to read your positive wrap up!! Unfortunately, February wasn’t very kind to me. It was very stressful and busy, I didn’t have much fun, I didn’t read and blog much, … I’m trying to make an effort to change that in March!
    I’m really sad I can’t participate in the book club this month. I couldn’t get the book and I’ve been doing really bad at time management, ): But I’m really glad to see you’ve loved Anna K, I really want to read it too! ^^
