Monthly Wrap-Up | February 2019

Happy end of February!

February flew by for me. It feels like yesterday that I was celebrating Christmas with my family. Now, we’re heading into spring and I cannot wait! Nothing super exciting happened to me during the month of February. I applied for a job I really want, so fingers crossed! 🙂

During the month of February I read 10 books! The only goal I had for the month was to read more books by people of colour for Black History Month. The books I chose were incredible, so I can’t wait to read more by Octavia E. Butler and Candice Carty-Williams.

As usual, I feature my top two books of the month from differing genres.

 

Best Books of the Month 1

the blood mirror

 

 

The Blood Mirror brings character twists you won’t see coming while setting up an incredible finale that will be The Burning White.
This fantasy series easily one of the best I’ve ever read. READ IT NOW!

 

 

 

 

 

The risk

 

The Risk is everything I wanted from it and more. It features a spitfire protagonist, witty banter, and red-hot chemistry. 
Kennedy is easily one of the best writers of new adult sports romance.

 

 

 

 

everything else 1

 

 

I read A Room of One’s Own in my first year of university in a women and literature course. I disliked it. Immensely. So, after finding a cheap copy at my local bookstore I decided to revisit it to see if my feelings changed. Spoiler alert: they did!
