February Monthly News

I hope you all had a nice February, especially Valentines Day. 
Yeah, I know it's a Hallmark holiday, but I love Hallmark and I love holidays. 
Win, win!!
I also listen to the groundhog each year, though, I wonder why. 
It's a fight as to which groundhog to listen to and who is right, but Willie says we'll be seeing Spring sooner rather than later. I can live with that. I need spring to be sprung like it was yesterday.... 
So, so far in the "genre count", I'm liking YA a lot more than I thought. Seems to be the pick for me... wonder if the trend will continue?
