In February, I managed to read 9 books.
Technically, a few more, but they were re-reads so I didn’t count them.
Since A Court of Silver Flames was coming out, the majority of the books I read were YA Fantasy books ( 5 in all). I also read one memoir, and 3 works of fiction.
Two of those were by Black authors.
It was actually a very good reading month! I discovered new books, didn’t get disappointed by the ones I was really anticipating and couldn’t put down a few that I wasn’t.
So far this year, I’ve read 19 out of the 115 books I’m challenging myself to read.
According to Goodreads, I’m one book ahead of schedule.
So take a look at what I read this month and tell me if you read any!
Next month’s going to be a busy month, with a lof of books I’ve been anticipating starting tomorrow!
Also, I’m thinking of starting a bookstagram…what do you think?
Books I Read This Month: February
A Deal with the Elf King (Married to Magic Novels)
By now you know my love for fantasy novels and YA fantasy novels. I got this one on Kindle unlimited. I didn't expect much, so I was so surprised that I LOVED this book. Even though there is a second book coming, this one is a stand alone, meaning that the ending was GREAT.
Storm and Fury (The Harbinger Series, 1)
Another YA Fantasy. I've had this book for a while, because it was like $1.99 one weekend last year and I got it. It was..just ok. It was getting good then they threw in the monkey wrench so I expect lots of teenage anxiety in the next book.
Burning Shadow (Origin Series, 2)
ANOTHER YA. by the same author as #2.
This one, I read the first one last year sometime, and put it down because I realized there were two other books and neither had come out yet. Well, now all of them are out.
The second book in the series is awesome. I loved it.
A Sky Beyond the Storm (An Ember in the Ashes Book 4)
I've been reading this series for years. The last book really left me hanging and sort of mad. But this was a great conclusion to the series.
The Bad Muslim Discount: A Novel
I couldn’t put this book down.When I read the premise on amazon, I kept coming back to it because it seemed.. interesting.But the humor mixed in with the horror and the whole story I just had to see what happened.Nothing ended like I thought it would.And that was a good thing.
The Mothers: A Novel
I think I started this book but never finished it a few years ago. But I couldn’t remember how it went or endedBritt Bennett is a wonderful writer.But I’m always left a little mad at the end of her books because I always want a conclusion, not the illusion of one.I loved the story, the writing , the characters. But just once, can’t I know EXACTLY what happened at the end 🤣
A Court of Silver Flames (A Court of Thorns and Roses, 5)
You know when you’ve been waiting for a long time for a book and it doesn’t meet your expectations?THIS IS NOT THAT BOOK!I loved loved loved Nesta’s story especially considering she was my least favorite sister!But the character growth is amazing!I can’t wait wait for the next book now that I’ve figured out a few of the hints she threw out there 🤯
This Time Next Year
This was so CUTE!I loved all the ways you find out that their whole lives had been leading them towards each other with little clues in the book.Such a good Saturday read!
