February was a very crazy month for me and my blogging, I got behind with several things and am still catching up. My reading is still slow, though not by choice. I work 4 nights a week from 4-10pm. 
This is my recap for February
Read and Reviewed: More Than Magic by Donna June Cooper http://thebestbasicblogger.blogspot.com/2016/02/book-reviewmore-than-magic-by-donna.html

The Marauders by Tom Cooper-http://thebestbasicblogger.blogspot.com/2016/02/book-review-marauders-by-tom-cooper.html

I did a gift exchange on Elfster-I sent my partner a gift for her dog (as on her wishlist) and a Sweet Love Heart Scarf which she will be receiving next week. I didn't receive anything for this one. However I am trying another one and hopefully this one will turn out ok. I joined the Handmade Etsy Love swap, where I may get a few items from my wishlist-hoping so!!

Firsts for me-WordlessWednesday meme and Harry Potter moment of the week meme.
Changed cable companies and am very happy with Xfinity!
Signed up for the April A-Z Blogging Challenge- I will be starting fresh for this exciting challenge!!
Started a new weekly meme called Coloring Corner and finally got the linky on there so everyone can join-share posts about your coloring-new books,coloring gear,pics etc, am hoping it will pick up.
Received 1 print copy from AUTHOR- Walter Rhein-of which I am currently reading!
And have signed up for 1 Giveaway hop in March- The Feeling Lucky Giveaway Hop!!
1.$10 Amazon GC from Romancing the Book-http://romancing-the-book.com/

I can't seem to get a pic but they have my little tin on their instagram page-PLUS their new promotion you can get certain flavored boxes of tea with flavored lip balm- I am definitely looking for this!!
