Melody’s February 2017 Wrap Up

Wow! February is already over! Spring is nearing. The year just began last month and yet it’s moving along so quickly. I don’t know whether or not I want 2017 to slow down or keep going as is. Anyway, this month was pretty quite for me on the reading front but after my impromptu reading break, I’m ready to dive back in and read my heart out in March. My favorite read this month was the graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler’s Kindred. This is a must read. I also went to the movies for the first time in awhile and saw Get Out. If you haven’t made your way to the theater to see that movie yet, you need to. I’m also almost caught up on the DVR and am really enjoying Legion. Anyone else absolutely loving this show?! Humans has come back strong with its sophomore season and the final season of Bates Motel is a trip! Anyway, here’s my February in a nutshell!
