Well didn’t February just fly by? And it’s left most of us in a right pickle with this snowy weather too. February was an okay month for me reading-wise, I didn’t quite read as much as I had aimed for but I read some really incredible books and enjoying them was all that really mattered! Here’s what I read in February!
Number of Books read: 7
Number of Pages read: 2,589 pages
I read some really, really excellent books this month! Including a few that are releasing in March that I am really excited for the world to read. I am still behind on reviews but I’ve posted all my ratings below with links to the review if it’s live or the Goodreads page if not!
- The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson – ★★★★.5
- Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin – ★★★★
- Second Best Friend by Non Pratt – ★★★★★
- The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton – ★★★★.5
- The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven – ★★★★★
- Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – ★★★★★
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – ★★★★★
I decided to make more use of my Audible account and to help me get used to listening to fiction, I’ve decided to have an audio reread of the Harry Potter series and I love listening to Stephen Fry narrate.
Okay, I know, this is more than one book for ‘Book of the Month’ but I just cannot choose between these two. They are so different from each other that they really aren’t comparable but both are absolutely brilliant in their own way. I adored the magic, mythology and superb world and characters in Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. At the same time, The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven is flipping BRILLIANT. I love this engaging, timely book with superb characters and the voice I think UKYA has desperately been waiting for! Both are fantastic reads!

I really want to start reading some of my backlist books now because I’ve already found myself only reading 2018 releases which won’t help that old TBR of mine. So this month I’m going to try and alternate my reading between a new release/ARC and a book from my TBR shelf – let’s see how that goes!
Happy World Book Day, everyone! Hope you’re treating yourself to a great read today!
