Reflections on February

A monthly reflection on how the Fae (Littlefae-5 and Tinyfae-2.5) and I are doing, learning, Reading.


A second month in blogging is over and I’m still finding my feet and voice, still wondering if I’m doing this right or wrong but giving it a go anyway.

I’ve had some lovely things said by authors who’ve read my reviews of their books that I seem to be ‘getting’ the books and the intentions which is a really amazing to know that the reviews are being read and appreciated and that my feelings are on track.

Thank you to everyone who has viewed, liked, read to the end! And/or commented on my posts, and/or followed me it is so greatly appreciated.

I met a Twitter/blog friend in real life Georgina from Toppsta which was really lovely 💖 Thank you for being so kind and supportive, it’s so nice to have ‘book friends’ who understand that your love for reading!!

My Good Reads challenge is doing well, I don’t count the picture books I read to the children in my total as I would’ve surpassed 52 in the first weeks of January!!

In February I’ve read 16 Books

My current GoodReads Challenge stands at 35/52 books which is correct as they finally added the two missing books from January!

This month’s reading Faevorites for me have been:

The Closest Thing to Flying *gifted
Amelia Fang and the Half Moon Holiday (mummy was naughty and read ahead! 🤫 ) – review in progress

In March I am looking forward to:

  • The Last Zoo by Sam Garton
  • Finally getting round to reading Who Let the Gods Out?, Murder Most Unladylike and The Apprentice Witch 🤭


Littlefae has been a little under the weather BUT we had some amazing news as the BIG test she had in January came back perfectly normal.

This is HUGE news as this test has been hanging over us officially for 2 years and hinted at since she was a year old. This means that there isn’t any hormonal reason for her being small which means it’s probably just the way she was always meant to be.

Littlefae is happy as it means less blood tests now!

This month Littlefae’s faevorites:

After watching Katie Morag, Littlefae has become obsessed with the Scottish children’s song ‘Ye Cannae shove ye Grannie off a bus!‘ Which led us to a now beloved book from Kelpies

She’s also been really enjoying The Trapdoor Mysteries: Thief in the Night by Abie Longstaff illustrated by James Brown, we’ve had a little pause as she was so excited to look through the new Amelia Fang BUT shes now excited to find what happens next to Tally and Squill back in Thief in the Night as she’s been so invested in the story since A Sticky Situation.

In March Littlefae looking forward to:

  • HER BIRTHDAY!! She’s going to be 6! She wants an Isadora Moon themed party and an Amelia Fang cake 😆
  • Reading the rest of Amelia Fang & The Half Moon Holiday and starting Isadora Moon has a Sleepover.
  • The Magical Kingdom Of Birds: The Missing Fairy Wrens- Anne Booth and DK Disney Craft Book on her birthday list!


Tinyfae has had a growth spurt this month and gone up a shoe size! This is huge for us as it took her so long to get to the smallest shoe size.

She’s getting much more of a personality and learning what she likes and what she doesn’t like and it’s beautiful to see even when she’s grouchy.

She adores books, nature, flowers, bees and she LOVES octopi which are lovingly called OTTapus.

Tinyfae’s Faevorite this month:

Hands down, Princess Poppy Please Please Please Save the Bees by Janey Louise Jones and Jennie Poh has been the absolute HIT of the month and I highly recommend this wonderful book with lots of knowledge, lots of advice and lots of play factor with search and find amongst the exquisite illustrations.

  1. There’s no right or wrong way to blog—it’s yours!! I’m perpetually behind on my reviews and have a ton of discussion posts in mind but then get overwhelmed with what I’m already doing… so I’m still trying to find a grove and totally understand!! Congrats on a wonderful Bookish Feb and Happy Reading in March!!

    1. Thank you! I have so many ideas and half formed reviews in my notes app and it’s trying to sort out which are a right fit for me and which are me just ‘trying’ out for size. Hope you have a happy March!!
