February was a decent month overall, and even though I didn’t complete my full TBR list for the month, I am still making progress as we speak.
So, the books I completed in February are:
- “The Selection” by Kiera Cass. This was probably my second favorite read of the month. I enjoyed it way more than I thought I was going to and I’m excited to continue this month. You can read my review here.
- “Snow Like Ashes” by Sara Raasch. This was a great debut novel and I can’t wait to read the second novel when it comes out later this year. You can read my review here.
- “City of Glass” by Cassandra Clare. This was definitely my favorite read of the month and it was such a great wrap-up to an original trilogy. You can read my review here. This book also completed my February TBR challenge for the month: to read a book over 500 pages! Woo!
Those were the three books I managed to finish this month. Though I did have three more books I wanted to read last month, I’m okay with not having finished them, and they are:
- “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” by J.K. Rowling. This is a humongous book and I’ll finish it as the year goes on.
- “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” by Laini Taylor. I’m currently reading this one and should be able to finish sometime this week.
- “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte. I’ll get to the classics soon, but when I saw how tiny the words were in the book I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish it this month.
It was a slow month and it was rather difficult because I kept on getting distracted by Netflix. *shakes fist*
Anywho, I’ve also decided that I’m going to pick through the Harry Potter series slowly as the year progresses and just read it when I can or in between book. Or I might just wait until Christmas time to power through a few of them. Who knows?
Other things that I talked about in February:
- Epic Reads Book Tag. One of my favorite branches of book publishing did their first book tag on booktube and I participated in it here on my blog. Maybe I’ll put up a video answer to my questions one day… Maybe…
- Happy Valentine’s Day. In which I talked about things that I love with love in them. I list eight books and movies per category and just talk about some of my favorite couples in both books and motion picture.
- Mood Reading: The Struggle. It’s seriously hard being a mood reader because I can set myself up with a TBR at the beginning of the month, but toward mid month I might not want to read those same books anymore. The struggle is real.
- Being a Slow Reader. On top of that, I’m also a slow reader. But that’s also because I enjoy taking my time to delve into the worlds I’m reading about and really get a sense of the characters, plot, setting, etc.
- Song Title Book Tag. This was a fun book tag I found on booktube and wanted to give my own answers to it. So I did.
- January & February Collective Book Haul! One of my favorite things to see in a month are peoples’ hauls and if there are any new books that I’m excited to read, too. I got 13 books over the past two months, which isn’t as many as I could have gotten.
Okay, let’s move on to my March TBR (can you believe it’s March already?).
The TBR Jar Challenge I picked for this month was: reread a favorite book.
Hmm, well, I thought about it and I think I’m going to reread “Firelight” by Sophie Jordan. It’s the first book in a YA fantasy dragon trilogy that I loved when I first read it. Maybe I’ll have different feelings this time around? Or maybe I’ll still love it? Who knows!?
To put into list form, here’s my TBR for the month:
- “Firelight” by Sophie Jordan. A book about people that have dragon blood and can turn into dragons? Yes please. It’s my reread pick for the TBR Jar Challenge.
- “The Elite” by Kiera Cass. This is the second book in the Selection trilogy and I was really excited to continue on last month and I’m still excited to continue on and see how the story unfolds.
- “Falling Kingdoms” by Morgan Rhodes. I said I’d finish it this month and I’m going to give it a go. Hopefully it won’t be so hard this time around.
- “Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard. This book has been so hyped and I want to see what it’s all about. It’s about a society that’s separated by blood, literally, and how one girl defies how that society works.
I think I’m going to keep the list short(er) this month and if I pick up more books then I’ll just roll with it.
