February Wrap Up (2019)


And February is done!

The months just keep flying by. Another month finished and with it a bunch of really great reads! I enjoyed most of the books I read this month. I didn’t get to read some of the books that I wanted to, but there’s always March.


📖 ARCs // 📚 Paperback // 📄 Ebook

💌 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling ★★★★★ 📚

Another reread for #Potterheadreadalong19 done! I was sick during the first few days of February so I had this little book to keep me company. Always a great feeling to revist the world of Harry Potter.

💌 A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab ★★★★ 📚

I’ve had this book on my shelf for about 2 months now, and I can’t explain how much I regret not reading this book sooner. The world building and the characters in this book were just amazing! I knew I would love it but this is too much.

💌 The Black Coats by Colleen Oakes ★★★ 📄📖

The Black Coats was a really unique book. I can’t say It’s my favorite but I did really enjoy it.

💌 Build Yourself a Boat by Camonhne Felix ★★★ 📄📖

I unique collection of poetry. I’ll admit there were many poems that I actually couldn’t understand, and I’m sure it’s because it’s aimed at a certain audience that is able to relate.

💌 A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas ★★★★★ 📚

I know most of the readers on Goodreads rated this a 2 to 3 star read but I’m giving it 5 stars. It’s been a while since I’ve read anything set in the ACOTAR world, and this book made me feel so warm and nostalgic!

💌 Tithe by Holly Black ★★★★ 📚

Holly Black writes the weirdst books ever, but I enjoy them every time. Tithe was no exception. I found it a lot stranger than The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I know that the next book centers around different characters but I’m pretty excited to start it.

💌 Stephen Hawking (Little People) by Isabel Sanchez Vegara ★★★ 📄📖

Ever since I joined Netgalley I’ve been finding the Little People books in the ‘read now’ section. I just had to read this one. It was so cute and really suitable for children.

💌 Valiant by Holly Black ★★★ 📚

The plan was to read this one in March but I couldn’t not pick it up. It was just as strange as Tithe but I found myself liking this one a little less than the first book. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it and I’m excited to read Ironside.

💌 The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater ★★★★ 📚

I gave in to all the hype and decided to finally read this one. It was fun and I finished it in a few days. I’m now reading The Dream Thieves and I’m actua;;y really really excited to see what happens next.

    The Darker Shade of Magic is on my shelf right now. I checked it out from the library. I’m kinda cautious about reading it because it’s so hyped, but I love London and British things are homey for me, so that also makes me excited lol.

    I really can’t wait to hear your thoughts on The Dream Thieves. It is my favorite installment in the series, actually. Kavinsky shows up in this book and he’s also my favorite character. He’s very messed up, but that’s what I find so interesting about him. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did!
    The Black Coats had a great premise, but I’ve been only seeing mediocre reviews so far. It doesn’t really make me excited to pick it up, sadly.
    I’m currently reading Truly Devious, by Maureen Johnson and it’s been giving me a lot of Chamber of Secrets vibes. A crime that has happened a long time ago is now mirroring present? I’m not mad, though! Chamber of Secrets is one of my favorites in the Harry Potter world and Truly Devious has been a very good experience.
    Hope you have an amazing March! ❣️

      I’ve decided to put it down for a while. Only because my friend is trying to catch up but I’ll be picking it up soon. I hope I love it too! 💕 The Black Coats was okay I guess. I didn’t love it though I really wanted to. Ooooh I’ve been wanting to read Truly Devious for some time now 😍 And what you said just makes me more excited!!
      Hope your march is amazing too! ❤
