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!

WWW Wednesday – February, 24th

Hello lovelies!

Long time no see. I took went on an accidental hiatus after my birthday but I am back!! I have read so many books these past week (more than usual) and I have been loving all of the books I read! Also I received 12 books for my birthday so I’m going to upload a book haul soon! In the meantime I wanted to catch up on my reading and what better way to do that than with WWW?

What are you currently reading?

I feel like all of the book community is reading this book haha (as they should). As I’m writing this post I am 300 pages in and I AM LOVING IT. I missed all of these characters so much!! I really didn’t like Nesta at first and it was hard forgiving her for what she put her sisters through but I am slowly changing my mind; I can’t wait to see how I stand on this topic by the end of the book.

What did you recently finish reading?

Okay so I don’t know what happened last weekend but I finished three books in three days and they are all 5 stars reads for me! A great reading weekend indeed. I’m going to put up a review for The Traitor Queen and Legendborn! If you are looking for amazing books with great characters, writing style and plot, these are the ones for you!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Remember when I mentioned receiving 12 books on my birthday? Yes, I’ll probably reading one of those. I’m going on book buying ban to keep my TBR low haha;

What are you currently reading?
