Happy Black History Month! January Wrap-Up! February excitement!

Hello lovelies!

Happy February and Happy Black History Month! ๐Ÿ’•

February is my favourite month of the year because it’s my birthday month (February 13th) and also because everyone tries to read more diverse books and it makes me really happy!

I had a good reading month in January even if I didn’t read as much as I had hoped; I feel in a little bit of a slump and I started watching a lot of TV instead of reading but by the end of the month I found my mojo again and I’m actually very excited for all of the books I plan on reading this month

Finale by Stephanie Garber โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… I started the year by finishing Finale, the last book in the Caraval series. I think the series wrapped-up nicely and I really liked to see all of the character's arc coming to an end. I preferred the second book but still a nice ending to an enjoyable series! The author announced a few months ago that she would release a book on Jacks and i really loved it so I'm excited for that!

The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L. Jensen โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… I really enjoyed this book! It had been recommended to me on Instagram and it was so unique and captivating! You can see my full review here.

Fable by Adrienne Young โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… I didn't like this book as much as I had hoped but it remained an enjoyable book nonetheless. I really like the ship's crew and their whole dynamic but I especially loved Fable who was an inspiring and resilient strong character. I can't wait to read the second book and see how it all ends.

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… My favourite book of the month! I wrote a full review where I gushed about this here.  Basically this book contains a lot of my favourite trope and made me believe in love.

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…I buddy read this book with a friend and it was such a nice experience! It was fun, action-packed and full of feels and steamy moments! I'm going to upload my review soon!

Paper Princess by Erin Watt. No rating. Call this book the "reading slump slayer"; It is so problematic, unrealistic and trashy BUT it is so addicting and I couldn't put it down. I read this in a day. I didn't expect this to be a series and I might pick up the next book when I have my next reading slump.

This month’s “hopefuls”

I know that realistically I won’t read all of these but I’m going to try my best!

Bridgerton

Do I really need to talk about this show?? I loved the diverse cast, all of the tropes and the quality of the cast and crew. I might upload a post dedicated to the series and what to read after binge-watching the TV show.

Nicola Coughlan is a real star and particularly stood out to me in Bridgerton and people recommended the Derry Girls and it was HILARIOUS. The episodes only watch 20 minutes and tell the story od girls from Londenderry in Ireland in the 90s and it was such a good time; can’t wait for season 3!

This is my sister’s favourite show, with reason and I’m into season 3 and it’s phenomenal. The whole series is magnificient.

Listen. I love love love these characters to death. I am waiting for my own personal Nick Miller. The last seasons were so wholesome and warmed my heart, I wish I could see the series again. And I almost cried with laughter too. Such a great show.

Books coming out this month I’m excited about

There are so many great releases this month! I also received an ARC in December for my Dearest Josephine by Caroline George and I highly recommend it to all of you! And of course A Court of Silver Flames! Any new SJM book is an event in and of itself! There are so many great diverse and books written by BIPOC coming out but these are the ones I’m the most interested about.

What have you been up to last month and what are your plans for this month?

Happy reading to all of you!

  1. It sounds like you had a good January!
    Yay you’re a 13 baby too! (I’m the 13 of November!!) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…
    NEW GIRL! I LOVE THAT SHOW SO MUCH! ๐Ÿ’ž I miss watching it, I could totally rewatch it. I’m so with you, I love Nick Miller! And I knew from that start they would get together, but I just didn’t know how long it was going to take to get there. I do like what they did though; had them get together for them to break up for seasons because by the time they did get together it felt so good to see them together again! Anywho’s ๐Ÿ˜… I hope you have a fabulous February! ๐Ÿ“š

  2. I’ve heard incredible things about From Blood and Ash and am super glad that you enjoyed it so much, I will be awaiting your review on that one in particular! Legendborn though a bit confusing at the start was overall such a heartfelt story, I hope that you can get to it and love it as well (and suffer the ending before the next one comes out haha)… lovely wrap up Karla and wishing you an amazing February birthday month as well! โค
