Bookmark Lit Bulletin | February 2024

Posted March 4, 2024 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 1 Comment

BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

February was a bit rough. Thank GOD for the series of six novellas that I read in February to make up for spending the literal entire month reading HOFAS. I also quickly read a couple of egalleys toward the end of the month when I was really craving some fast-paced mysteries.
