General bookish fun, Wrap-up

Monthly Wrap-Up: What I read in February

Happy Monday, Book Dragons!

I can’t believe March is already here, how is it possible?? I’ve had an excellent racing month, managed to re-read some favourites ahead of a certain new release and willingly lost sleep to do so. February was definitely the month that reminded me why I love reading! Some books featured in this post were gifted by publishers, these are clearly marked.

Happy reading!

What I read:

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert: (Gifted earc)

This was a re-read as I needed to refresh my memory before reading The Night Country. I couldn’t remember anything apart from the basic premise, I really enjoyed it!

My rating: ★★★★★

Gwendy’s Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar:

I loved this novella, I’m no stranger to King but this was my first Chizmar. I loved the concept and thrilled there’s a sequel, I will definitely be picking that up asap.

My rating: ★★★★★

The Night Country by Melissa Albert:

I really enjoyed this. I love how the author expanded on the world of The Hinterland, I’m glad I read this before diving into Tales From the Hinterland.

My rating: ★★★★

Tales From the Hinterland by Melissa Albert: (Gifted)

I love books of fairytales from fictional worlds I love and Tales From the Hinterland is no exception. I’ve been eager to read characters stories and I was not disappointed!

My rating: ★★★★★

Last One to Die by Cynthia Murphy:

I loved this one! You know a book is good when you sleep with the light on and decide to never set foot in a library or the underground again. My full review will be up asap!

My rating: ★★★★★

ACOMAF, ACOWAR, ACOFAS, ACOSF by Sarah J Maas:

A Court of Silver Flames have me the perfect excuse to re-read this series. I barely left my room and didn’t sleep.until I had finished them all. I have no regrets! I still don’t have the words to

adequately convey how incredible Silver Flames is. Its raw, unflinching, and shows a side to Nesta that we haven’t seen before but relate to. A Court of Silver Flames has a special place in my heart, nothing I say will ever give it the justice it deserves.

My rating for all of them: ★★★★★★

Bad Habits by Flynn Meaney: (Gifted)

I had a good laugh reading this one, its different to the contemporary books I usually read. I would have loved this as a teenager.

My rating: ★★★.5

Show Us Who You Are by Elle McNicoll: (Gifted)

I adored this one! I laughed, cried and was filled with such joy reading. I’m still lost for words, Show Us Who You Are completely blew me away! My full review will be up later this week.

My rating: ★★★★★

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas:

I have fallen down the SJM rabbit hole and will now be re-reading the Throne of Glass series for the billionth time. I love these short stories set before the first ToG book.love

My rating: ★★★★★

What I’m reading:

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas:

I’m continuing my Throne of Glass re-read, there’s so many details I had forgotten. Things have been hard recently so returning to a favourite author/series has been a huge help and comfort.

Events:

An Evening with Sarah J Maas:

Towards the end of the month was the first stop on the virtual ACOSF tour. It was a long three month wait but was so worth it!

Its always a privilege to listen to talk about her books, mental health and inspiration. The event was chaired by Katie Webber-Tsang, who always asks thoughtful and insightful questions.

So this was my month! How was yours, what books did you read?
