February Wrap Up!

Hi friends! Welcome to another monthly wrap up of all the amazing books I read! I was mostly really happy with all my choices this month and there was a lot of diversity in the genres and mediums of the books I read! I started listening to audiobooks this month and I’ve found that I like it more than I thought I would!

I completely threw my TBR that I had planned out the window this month. I had planned to read 16 books and I actually ended up reading 18 books. However… there are 8 books from my TBR that I didn’t touch. I got really distracted by library books (new is always better, right) and restructured my Netgalley reads because I hit 80+% for my ratio so I don’t have to read those as frequently. Basically I mood read all month and IT’S FINE!

  1. Serious Moonlight, Jenn Bennett – 4.5/5 stars
  2. A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2), Sarah J. Maas – 5/5 stars (reread)

Happy reading, folks!

February Haul!

Happy end of February! This month has just flown by. Even with it being a leap year and having one extra day in February, I still feel like it just started yesterday. Somehow it is already almost March and will be spring before we know! Time flies when we’re having fun!!

I have been SOOO good with not buying books this month. We are really trying to save for this wedding we have next year, so I’ve been utilizing the library more now than I normally would! I still have some books to talk about – I can never go a month without getting at least one!!

SUBSCRIPTION BOX BOOKS

This month I only got the Owlcrate book of the month and an Owlcrate special edition book. I skipped BOTM because I wasn’t invested in any of the choices.

  1. Heart of Flames (Crown of Feathers #2), Nicki Pau Preto – special edition sequel
  2. All the Stars and Teeth (All the Stars and Teeth #1), Adalyn Grace

AMAZON

I was also gifted a book and got in a preorder this month! Ember Queen was a gift from my fiance for Valentine’s Day šŸ™‚

  1. Ember Queen (Ash Princess #3), Laura K. Sebastian
  2. The Shadows Between Us, Tricia Levenseller

Let me know if you picked up, or have read, any of these books this month! Ember Queen and The Shadows Between Us are definitely on my March TBR!

Happy reading, folks!

February TBR!

Happy February! I’m very excited for my upcoming reads this months because I got some Netgalley books that I’m really anticipating for 2020. Netgalley has been very good to me, and I started an account with Edelweiss as well! I already have one approval for a 2020 release that I’m so stoked for, but will likely be reading in March.

I’m continuing to try to have a good balance of physical and ebooks, because I can feel the strain on my eyes when I read too much on my phone or iPad. I’m starting my binge of Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series, which will likely continue on to March unless I read a whole lot more than I’m expecting to (which likely won’t happen because we are very busy with wedding planning!)

PHYSICAL BOOKS

Some of these may look familiar from my January TBR, but I didn’t get to them last month so they just were bumped to February. Two of these books are library books to read before I read the sequel in the form of a Netgalley eARC.

  1. The Women’s War (Women’s War #1), Jenna Glass
  2. The Wicked Fox (Gumiho #1), Kat Cho
  3. The Beckoning Shadow (The Beckoning Shadow #1), Katharyn Blair
  4. Serious Moonlight, Jenn Bennett
  5. The Assassin’s Blade (Throne of Glass #0.5), Sarah J. Maas
  6. Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2), Sarah J. Maas
  7. Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3), Sarah J. Maas
  8. Girls with Sharp Sticks (Girls with Sharp Sticks #1), Suzanne Young

  2. Bad Bachelor, Stephanie London
