Yesterday we talked about our February bookhaul which means today it’s time to talk about what we read last month. How did our reading month go? Did we read any new favorites? Were there any disappointments? Keep on reading for our complete February wrap up to find out more!
In February I had a good month! I ended up reading a total of 16 books (5 audiobooks, 4 ARCs, 3 e-books, 2 graphic novels, 1 hardcover & 1 paperback) and had an average rating of 4 stars. So that’s not bad at all. Let’s see what I read!
Spoiler Alert is one of my favorite romances, so I was very excited for All the Feels. This was such a fun, romantic, and heartwarming read. I’m really excited to read more by this author.
Girls of Storm and Shadow – Natasha Ngan
Girls of Storm and Shadow is the sequel to Girls of Paper and Fire. This story takes off right where we left off and let’s say things get interesting. The aftermath of everything these characters went through is very visible and it was such an intense ride. I’m really excited to read the third and final book in March.
I enjoyed The Beast and the Bethany, so I was really excited for the next book. Revenge of the Beast was another fun read with some important lessons. It definitely leaves us wanting a third book and I’m excited to see if and when that happens.
Across the Field of Starlight is a stunning graphic novel and the artwork was phenomenal. The world and politics were interesting, but it was confusing at times with us readers being thrown into the middle of a lot of history. All in all, I really did enjoy this story.
I’ve discovered a new favorite book with Delilah Green Doesn’t Care. The characters, setting, romance, character development, and humor were just all amazing. Once I picked this story up I just couldn’t stop reading.
All the Right Reasons was a contemporary I was really looking forward to. It was a fast and fun read and even though I wanted just a bit more I’m glad I decided to pick this one up. I will be keeping an eye out for more by this author.
Girl on Fire – Alicia Keys & Andrew Weiner
I was definitely surprised to see Alicia Keys was publishing a graphic novel, but I was definitely curious. Girl on Fire has amazing artwork and I loved the story. The main character finally stands up for herself even if things don’t go exactly as she thought. I do hope we get more though, because I still have a lot of questions.
The Accidental Apprentice – Amanda Foody
The Accidental Apprentice is a book I started quite some time ago, but finally sat down and finished. I loved the world building and the characters. I’m already reading the sequel as I’m typing this.
No Judgements – Meg Cabot
I’ve been wanting to read No Judgements for quite some time and finally picked up the audiobook. A hurricane is heading its way to where our main character lives. The characters we meet and the romance are all a lot of fun. I’ll definitely be continuing with this series.
Love at First Spite – Anna E. Collins
Love at First Spite is a book I’ve been seeing quite often since it released, so I had to give it a go. I enjoyed most of the book and the new romance that develops. The ending didn’t sit well with me though. Certain things were left as is that shouldn’t have been in my opinion.
Under One Roof – Ali Hazelwood
Under One Roof was a fun enemies to lovers romance. The audio was a lot of fun and if I’m honest my only criticism is that I want more. I have a feeling Ali Hazelwood is becoming an auto buy author. I can’t wait for the next novella.
An Unexpected Kind of Love – Hayden Stone
An Unexpected Kind of Love is on of my e-galleys that I’ve left unread for way too long. The audiobook released, so I decided to read during my commute to work. It was a fast and fun story, but the main character irritated me. The story was fun, but not my favorite.
Teach Me – Olivia Dade
After finishing All the Feels I decided that I needed to read more of Olivia Dade’s backlist. Teach Me was such a fun story and had me smiling often and even made me cry. The characters and romance were amazing. I’m already working on the second book in this trilogy.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve read a Colleen Hoover book and Reminders of Him was everywhere, so I have to say I just needed to read it. Once again, I was sucked into this book and it just didn’t let me go. I laughed and cried. I highly recommend reading this one.
Claimed by Cupid – Dana Isaly
Dipped in Holly is a novella I became really curious about around the holidays, so when Claimed by Cupid released I couldn’t release. It’s a lot more smutty than what I normally read, but it was really good. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more of these holiday novellas.
Now That I’ve Found You – Kristina Forest
Now That I’ve Found You was a story I was really looking forward to. I did enjoy it, but the main character rubbed me the wrong way. And as the story progressed I understood why she acted the way she did. Also, I wished the journey of finding her grandmother was just a bit shorter. The romance was really fun and sweet.
Favorite Book: Delilah Green Doesn’t Care
Least Favorite: Now That I’ve Found You
Most Surprising: Claimed by Cupid
After a pretty decent January I had a horrible February… I’ve been sick and busy and I just haven’t been reading. In the end I only finished one book and one short story. Hopefully March will be better! At least they were both entertaining haha.
This was a fun buddy read! It wasn’t everything I hoped for but I had fun reading it. I would definitely recommend it to YA contemporary fans and I will pick up another book by this author if I see an interesting synopsis for sure.
The Angel of Khan el-Khalili – P. Djèlí Clark
I found out there was another short story in the Dead Djinn universe so of course I had to read it. It was wonderful being back in this world, even though it was only for 32 pages. I was completely immersed in the world again and really enjoyed the story. Now I just need to read the first full length novel in the series!
Favorite Book: The Angel of Khan el-Khalili
Least Favorite: –
Most Surprising: All the Right Reasons
