My Bookish Month of February 2020

Hi and welcome to another monthly overview!

I blinked and February was gone! Not the best month health-wise, and I’ve just about had it with this weather, but when it comes to books, I had a pretty amazing month! I found a few new favourites, AND I finally plucked up the courage to read a book in Spanish, ending up thoroughly enjoying both the story and the language, so that was a definite win! I used to read at least one Spanish book a month, usually more, but least year I read only English, so reading more in Spanish was one of my goals this year. I hope to read 9 more, making an even 10 in 2020 (20 would be way cooler, but I don’t think I can manage that), so if you have any recommendations, let me know!

I read about the same amount as in January, a little more in terms of novels and a little less in terms of graphic novels and audiobooks, in figures that looks like this:

Novels: 5160 pages over 16 books & 3 novellas / short stories
Graphic novels: 120 pages over 3 graphic novels
Audiobooks: 51 hours over 6 audiobooks

And here’s what I did last month, and some of what I’ll be posting this month:
