February has been a pretty good month, although I didn’t achieve as much as I would have liked. I carried on with C25K and have made it further than I ever have before – even past the dreaded week 5 day 3! I went out for dinner with friends a few times, spent some time with my family and started watching Arrow – I’m enjoying it but I’m not sure I’m totally hooked. I had a real mixture of books this month, but Orphan X and my Game of Thrones re-reads were definitely my favourites! I’m 7 books ahead on my GR challenge, so debating upping it, but I’m loving the fact that the lower goal means I feel less anxious about picking up huge books (like Game of Thrones) so I’m not sure yet.

Watching & Gaming
This month I watched Spotlight which I thought was great, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children which I really enjoyed, Inferno which I wasn’t at all impressed with and The Lego Batman movie which was great fun, very funny.
I haven’t really played any games this month. I played Rise of the Tomb Raider for about an hour, but that’s it!
