February in Review

February is almost behind us, and that means it's time to see what fun and exciting things have happened here at What Book is That? in the past month!




Exciting fruits are already being borne of the Off the Path tree!  Not only did we feature a really fun series of posts on social media by Sasha Soren, author of Random Magic, but we also featured Renee Reardon, author of Moonlight Bleu, and one lucky ready won a copy of the book!  For those who missed the posts the first time around, here's your chance to relive the action:

Also, I hang my head in shame, I did not meet my reviewing goal for this month.  Better luck next month!

I'm definitely aiming to have a lot more reviews posted in March, and I've been reading a ton of great books lately, which definitely helps!  I also have two more Off the Path authors to feature, as well as a ton of other good stuff!  What's on your horizon in the coming weeks?
