I have to confess that while 2 and 8 can be challenging ages, I'm having a blast watching these two. Every once in a while, I find myself laughing hysterically or needing a mop to wipe my heart off the floor after a particularly adorable moment. I especially love watching them together and I'm so glad that they are friends.
What I Read/Reviewed:
I only reviewed 5 books in February because I was posting weekly posts about Alexander Hamilton and I participated in a readalong of a great book about female scientists called Headstrong, as well as Book Blogger Appreciation Week. So I guess, technically, I reviewed 7 books - 5 were nonfiction and 2 were fiction.
I think my favorite book of this month was The Queen of the Night, but I also have to send some love to Ron Chernow's Hamilton. I spent eight weeks with that book and I feel like I learned so much, not only about the man himself but also about the era in which he lived and the beginning of our American government and politics.

What I'm watching:
The husband and I loved the end of Agent Carter and I really hope that it gets a third season. When I'm working or blogging and I want some background noise, I find myself rewatching Gilmore Girls. I guess I'm getting ready for the new episodes!
What I've been listening to:
Hamilton. Obviously. Always. But I've also been branching out and listening to some new-to-me musicals including Little Women and The Drowsy Chaperone.
And then there are podcasts. I love Book Riot's The Podcast and Get Booked. What podcasts do you listen to?
What were you into in February?

It's so good! My sisters and I may not do mini-performances when we get together. :)Delete
Wow I didn't realise your boy is 8 already!I don't know anything about 8 year olds, but twos sure are funny. I can't wait to read Queen of the Night! Hope March will be a great one for you.ReplyDelete
He's a giant. I keep thinking he's a million years old and then he does something that is still very much a little boy. It's a really fascinating in-between age.Delete
Can't wait to hear what you think of Queen of the Night!
Is The Queen of night a spooky read? It looks spooky to me based on the cover but I'm not sure.ReplyDelete

No, I don't think it's spooky. It's a lot of secrets and hidden identities, but nothing jumping out to say "boo!"Delete
Glad your household's feeling a little better now at least!! And ahh Hamilton. I just recently discovered it. It's so good.ReplyDelete
It's so very good. I may be slightly obsessed, but I'm not too worried about it. :)Delete
Sorry to hear that the start of the year didn't go down too well in your household what with illnesses - it's great that you're all on the mend now, touch wood!!ReplyDelete
Lovely picture of your two children - I feel you on 2 being a challenging age!
