February Wrap-Up & March TBR

I am so effing happy to be out of February(well pretty much). This month has been brutally cold. Set a whole bunch of records for being the coldest month. Not one single day above 0. That's just mean. March better pick it up and bring spring like weather as soon as it arrives. Otherwise I didn't leave my house unless I had to. So pretty much only for work. Still busy there. But definitely died down towards the end of the month. Had some doctor appointments and health stuff to figure out. So that's never fun. Pretty much I just want to forget about February.
I ended up reading a total of 24 things this month. *high-five's self* I had strong ambitions to knock a bunch of review books out. But what ended up happening is that I feel into a major NA/romance/contemporary kick(which I'm still very much in). So fail on the reviews. Which side note; I've noticed I don't review even half the books I read in a month. I really need to stop being so lazy and review more of the books I read.-end side note. Yea, so, devoured a lot of NA's this month. And I'm really not sorry about it.

I read soooo many good books this month. Just so many 4* and 5*. With one joke(cough*After*cough) and two disappoints I was really hope. Quality wise one of my best reading months. Picking a favourite is hard. The 5*'s were really 5*'s. But Rat Queens and The Last Time We Say Goodbye definitely stand out a little bit more. For two totally different reasons. Let's hope March continues on with a bunch of awesome reads.

Alright, I think this might be the last time I try and outline some sort of TBR. It seems I really and truly can't stick with a schedule. Even review books will take a back seat when my mood takes a turn. But with some new releases(ish) and some review books I have to read(especially the ones I failed to read this month), there are books that are for sure's. Review wise; The Winner's Crime, Shadow Scale, Dead to Me, The Nightingale, The Boy Next Door and Black Dove, White Raven. (I think those are all the musts). New releases include; The Return, Confess, Fall With Me, Deep, The Wicked Will Rise and Half Wild. I know that seems like a lot of books, but some will take me two seconds to devour and others might get pushed back(like The Wicked Will Rise, I'm super excited for it but I feel like I need to re-read Dorothy Must Die first). Anyhow, like always we'll see where my mood takes me. Oh, I forgot about book club. There's another book.

What was your favourite read of February?

Happy reading!



  1. Not a single day above 0? That's just cruel. Even though you didn't get a lot of review books read you did get some serious reading done! Hope all the doctor visits have at least gotten you feeling better. Hope March will be as good reading wise but far better everything else wise!

  2. HOLY MOLY BRITTANY! SO MANY BOOOOOKS! We need to sit down and talk about the NA books you read next week. I'm trying to read more (reading Clipped Wings in march!). Glad you liked the art of lainey, i wasn't the biggest fan of it

  3. Fingers crossed March will be warmer for you! Also, I hope you're feeling better after all the doctors visits :)
    24 books is amazing!! You read so many amazing books! I'm totally not sorry for making you read Nicole Williams books and taking over the end of your month because they're amaaaaaaaaaazing! Garth is probably my fave after book 4. I'm going to try and get my hands on Tangled this month (hopefully!). And also hopefully Bad Romeo! How on earth did I forget that Salt & Stone was published this month?! I'm so glad you enjoyed The Art of Lainey! I totally didn't read any of your recommendations this month... I'll have to read two in March! I need to read The Winner's Crime this month too! Fall With Me!! I neeeeeeeed this one to come out now!
    Happy reading! :D
