What went on in the blogging community

1.Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books hosted an event called Love a thon,and invited all bloggers to spread love among the community!I took part this year,and it was pretty amazing.It was a great chance to meet quite a lot of bloggers,and I had so much fun with the twitter chats.

2.Amy Spalding-the author of Kissing Ted Callahan,stirred some controversy in the blogging community with her negative reviewer bingo card.

3.Bloglovin introduced collections!It's kinda like pinterest and I am loving it!You can now save blog posts of different types in different collections.Check it out here

4.Sarah J.Mass revealed the title of the 4th TOG novel-Queen of Shadows!

What's hot in the world and internet

1.A dress broke the internet.Yes you heard me right,and I am not talking about Lupita Nyongo's 6000 pearl dress that got stolen but rather an ugly dress that's confused people all over the world because it's changing colours.
I am quite amused by the things that human beings go gaga over.

2.The Oscars!NPH's opening number was pretty great,and despite a few weird and creepy situations*cough*John Travolta*cough*,I really enjoyed it.Plus Eddie Redmayne's acceptance speech was pretty cute.He was adorable:)

3.Valentine's Day happened.And I spent the day with a pretty hot date with a book and a cup of hot chocolate.What about you guys?

Personally,my February.

1.I went on a road trip with few of my friends.It was pretty much a disaster.My best friend and I got lost halfway,got drenched in the pouring rain,and after we caught up with the others,on the way back home,our vehicle broke down,and we had to catch a ride in a bus and came back home drained of all our energy.It was a crazy day,but I loved every moment of it!

2.I am making a still in progress list of blogs to read and follow.If you guys have some recommendations to me,feel free to let me know.

3.As I am on a three month holiday until I get my Ordinary Level results,I am missing school a lot.But thankfully I am taking part in a voluntary program for three weeks in school next month,and I am pretty excited to be back there.

4.I had marathons,a lot of them.Harry Potter,Big Bang Theory,Suits,Once Upon a Time,The Vampire Diaries,Gossip Girl,How I met your mother,Criminal Minds and even Friends!Well,I am practically jobless at home,so Netflix has become my boyfriend for some time.

5.Lent season started and I am giving up meat.It's tough,but I am coping:)

6.I am learning to bake.It's actually quite fun and I am loving the end results.

Good bye February,time to greet March!
How did your month go?
