February Wrap-Up aka best reading month ever! ✨

Happy March lovelies!

I hope that you’re all well. My sweet, dear February is behind us and it was the best month ever. I had a great quiet birthday and I read 8 books which I gave 4 or 5 stars to! So only amazing books! I also have three all-time favourites and read some of my most anticipated releases of the year so it was an overall success! I hope March continues to treat me well and I wish all of you a great (reading) month!

I have managed to read 8 books this month which is great for my reading goal; I’m now 14/70 with three books ahead of schedule. My favourite books were Legendborn, A Court of Silver Flames and Act Your Age, Eve Brown! All of these books made me ugly cry in a good an dbad way and I love them so much!

5 stars

Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert ★★★★★. This book holds a dear place in my heart for everything it represents in terms of representation. I have never been more drawn to a romance couple; Eve and Jacob, were *clenches fist* SO CUTE. I cried when I received an ARC for this book. I’m so so so happy.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas ★★★★★. I had neevr read this before can you believe it? I didn’t have time to reread the whole ACOTAR series so this book was a nice transition into ACOSF and a great way of remembering the dynamic between the Inner Circle.

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J Maas ★★★★★ This book. This book. This book. Character development? Perfect. Female empowerment? Sublime. Love interest? To die for. I loved this.

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn. ★★★★★ I have never enjoyed reading a book this much in my entire life. Never. This is what dreams are my of. I can die happily, my dreams have been answered.

4 stars

The Princess Trap by Talia Hibbert. ★★★★ .WOW a fun, cute and sexy romance! Talia Hibbert knows the way to my heart.

The Traitor Queen by Danielle L. Jensen ★★★★. This was a satisfying and great conclusion to the story and i had a great time reading it!

Finding Yvonne by Brandy Colbert ★★★★★. How refreshing this story was! A coming of age with a Black main character? Yes, please!

Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas ★★★★★. I read a dark! Kylo Ren fanfic once and my life has never been the same. Douglas is known for writing dark romances and I wanted to see what the hype was about. Worth it!

Favourite posts by fellow bloggers

A Guide to Audiobooks by Jayati @It’s Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile. Jayati wrote an amazing post on audiobooks and I just really loved it!

From Blood And Ash: Book Review by Hundreds&ThousandsHundreds & Thousands of Books. I love this reveiw because even though this book was great, I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to and it was nice to see a review that felt the same way about a certain character…

What to Read After Bridgerton byAnne @ The Lit Bitch. Let’s face it, after watching the TV show we all asked this question and Anne came up with a great list of books to read! A lifesaver.

The Shadows Between Us // Review by April Lee @ Booked Till MidnightBooked Till Midnight. You know when a review is so good it makes you by the book? Yes, well this definitely happened and April is to blame.

This month’s hopefuls!

So this is my birthday haul! I received many gift cards and of course I decided to spend that money in books! Since I’m going on a book buying ban, I’m hoping to read most of these in the following weeks!

Any book I should read first? Let me know!!

As I said, I had an amazing month! It wasn’t easy everyday and I started school again, but it was my birthday month and Black History month and Valentine’s Day (aka people celebrating romance novels) and I just felt so much love!! My (twin) sister and I both bought nice dresses to wear at home, we ate a delicious cake and we sang 22 by Taylor Swift the whole day! It was perfect. If you’re wondering what the white thing that’s under my dress, it’s a bad that is meant to cover my second degree burn! I tried curling my hair and this happened; I’m the clumsiest person ever. Bella Swan, who?

Goals

  • Work on my WIP everyday. Now this is something I really struggled with this in February and I really hope I make a dent or even finish a first draft this month!
  • Not purchasing any book (except Act Your Age, Eve Brown)
  • Read at least 8 books this month
  • Finish Empire of Storms which I have been reading since december.

What did you do last month? What did you enjoy reading? Let me know in the comments!

  5. Gorgeous post! This is a brilliant idea, and having your birthday in a month where you only read 4 and 5 star books is a pretty great coincidence… hope you had a good day 😌 Aw thanks so much for mentioning my post, I dont say this much, but that *certain character* deserves more hate haha. I’m currently reading a kingdom of flesh and fire and ahh I’m very conflicted about my feelings for him. It’s a tricky one!
