Favorites - February 2016

Can you believe it’s almost March? It feels like I just celebrated the New Year. I want to be a little kid again where time seemed to stand still. 23 days until Christmas took FOREVER back then. And now? One blink and it is already spring.


This month I read 2 books and listened to 3 audiobooks. I’m halfway through The Rose Society by Marie Lu but I can’t seem to get into this book. Maybe I’m just not in the mood for fantasy right now.


My favorites this month:



Kings Rising by C. S. Pascat

I absolutely loved this last installment of the trilogy. I even canceled my book order for the paperback because it took too long to arrive and bought it as an ebook, so I could start sooner.



Shake It Out by Florence and the Machine

I’m currently playing the Cerimonials album up and down. But my favorite is definitely Shake It Out.


TV Show

Criminal Minds

I’m back watching the new episodes of Criminal Minds. Who knows why I find series killers so interesting…




I was positively surprised by this film. While I love Jennifer Lawrence I expected this movie to drag a little bit. And with 120 minutes this movie is not the shortest. But I was completely pulled into the storyline. When the end came I was a little bit caught off-guard. I didn’t think this movie would get to me so much.


How was your month? Are you looking forward to spring?
