February 2014 on Lipsyy Lost & Found

Woah February went quick ey? I didn’t get through as many books as I wanted to, but I went to Iceland, revamped my flat as I now have it all to myself, and my parents came to help/visit. So all in all, it’s been an excellent, if not busy one!

January has been a good month! It took me a while to get back into the swing of things after a great Christmas and New Year but I am well and truly back up and running. I also turned 30. EEEEK!

Books Purchased: 
I didn’t need to buy any books this month because I have sooooooooooooo many on my TBR list and so many I got for Christmas and my birthday. But…I had to buy these.

And The Immortal Rules by Julia Kagawa. It was only £1. I couldn’t resist.

Books Swapped: 

Swap #1: I only swapped one book this month; Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions for The Book of Skulls by Robert Silverberg. I haven’t read any Silverberg before.
