February Wrap-Up

February Wrap-Up Banner

Hello Everyone!

How is everyone doing today? This is later than I wanted, but I finally have a February wrap-up!

February wasn’t a great reading month for me, but that’s okay! I’m cautiously optimistic that March will be better!

Similar to last month, this post will have a section for Stats, Books Read, Books Purchased, and a NetGalley section.

Wrap-Up Stats

In total, I managed to finish 5 books in February and it looks like I read 1,680 pages.

Of those 5 books, 1 was contemporary fiction, 1 was fantasy, 1 was romance, 1 was thriller, and 1 was historical fiction.

Two of the books I finished fell into the middle grade age category and three fall into the adult category.

As far as format goes, all 5 books were physical books in February.

Two of the books I read were on my back list and three were new purchases.

Wrap-Up Books Read

Love and Other Words by Christina LaurenI hate to say it but I found this book to be a bit disappointing. While this one had some elements that I enjoyed, there were some plot points that I had a major issue with. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Love and Other Words.

  • Love and Other Words

The Hatmakers by Tamzin Merchant – I loved this middle grade book so much! I loved the magical clothing, and I thought the main character was wonderful and inspirational. It also had a lot of fun scenes that make me excited to get my hands on the sequel once it’s out in paperback.

The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston – This is another book that I loved so much! I was a bit skeptical about this book when it was released, but I am so glad that I gave it a chance. Florence was such a great character and I fell in love with the small town that she’s from. I also loved the ghost aspect of this book.

The Dead Romantics

The House in the Pines by Ana Reyes – This book is a bit outside of my comfort zone but it was a book club pick and I usually give those a chance. While the premise of this book was interesting enough, I just wasn’t overly impressed with this one.

The Forest of Moon and Sword by Amy RaphaelI had mixed feelings about this middle grade book. I thought it started off strong, but I felt like the ending was rushed and it left me slightly confused. I did love the strong female main character and the adventure she went on though. If you’re interested, you can read my review of The Forest of Moon and Sword.

Wrap-Up Books Purchased

I may have gone a bit crazy with book shopping in February. To the best of my recollection, I think I added 13 physical books to my shelves this month.

The first eight books are from Book Outlet because I have poor self control around discount books. The other five are books that I picked up from the store. Mhairi McFarlane and Abby Jimenez are two authors that I’ve been wanting to get into and I was quite happy when I found their books on Book Outlet. You Had Me at Hola is the Team Romance book for the March round of Trope-ical readathon. Astrid Parker Doesn’t Fail was the last copy sitting on a romance table at the bookstore, I thought it was lonely and I decided to adopt it and take it home.

Wrap-Up NetGalley

February trended in the wrong direction for me.

I started the month with a 50% feedback ratio and I ended with a 49% feedback ratio.

I started the month with 76 unread books and I ended the month with 78 unread books. I added Secretly Yours by Tessa Bailey and The Housekeepers by Alex Hay to my shelf

I’m cautiously optimistic that I’ll be able to improve those numbers this month since I have lots of train reading planned today and on Saturday.
