I was already freaking out about it having been ages since I posted a decent TBR – which I fixed last week! – and.. now I’m in the groove because I even succeeded at making a wrap-up! How shocked are you?! Because I know I am very, very shocked. Let’s just hope I can keep this up every month because I miss doing these posts!
Anyway. As for a small update regarding life.. February was my first month going back to work, although only two days a week, and.. it’s been hard but amazing at the same time. I feel like I’m almost as motivated as before my life turned upside down almost two years ago. I can cope, I can handle it, I actually work instead of counting down the minutes and that’s huge. We also celebrated Jamie’s first birthday this month – time flies, truly – and got some more prep done for our wedding in November, whoop! Crazy stuff is happening!
That’s it! Let’s take a look at my February reading!
As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page!
The star-ratings link back to my reviews if I’ve posted them or added one on Goodreads!
If you want to be absolutely “correct”, I only read one book that qualifies for Fantastic February and that’s The Queen of Nothing but since I.. read two pretty awesome sequels – even though one is more science fiction – I just.. I’m putting them both here, okay. Sue me!
In any case, I absolutely loved The Queen of Nothing as you can read in my review [Click the stars!] and.. I have yet to write a decent one on Supernova so you’ll see it when you’ll see it!. I might have to schedule a reread to then write that review, maybe.
OTHER BOOKS ON MY OWNED TBR I READ
To Be Honest by Maggie Ann Martin ~ RTC
Hearstopper Vol. 3 by Alice Oseman ~ ★★★★★
To Be Honest is yet another book I have to write a review for and I will eventually! Honestly, I just wanted to focus a bit on writing some other posts before going back to reviews again. I miss being a bigger part of this community than I have been with the “only posting reviews”-thing I was doing. Anyway!
I lovelovelove Heartstopper but volume three is my favorite so far. I don’t know. There are more different subjects in this one that click with me than in the previous two volumes, I guess? Also the cuteness overload! Like.. I need more and I cannot wait to get it.
ARC’S I READ
The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver ~ ★★★★
Queen Bee by Jane Fallon ~ ★★★ [RTC]
I finished two ARC’s in February, which is less than I anticipated but.. oh well! At least I enjoyed it! You’ll see my review pop up closer to its release dates!
SCRIBD-BOOKS I LISTENED TO
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord ~ ★★★★
Caraval by Stephanie Garber ~ ★★★★★ [reread]
This is a huge first for me, since I swore by “audiobooks not being my thing unless it’s Harry Potter” but.. Look at me going right now! I listened to two audiobooks in February and loved it! Admittedly, Caraval was a reread but.. I underestimated the power of listening to a story, I think? I got swept up in both books in a way I truly didn’t expect. Cannot wait to listen to more! First up is my reread of Legendary so I can finally pick up Finale afterwards!
Total number of books read: 8
Average rating: 4.36 [Rating unknown for one book]
Seven books is not bad at all! Especially since most my reading time is between 8 and 10pm, and even then I still tend to get distracted with social media and games on my phone and.. well.. not-reading-stuff. Seven is gooood!
