I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about what’s happening in Ukraine. It’s infuriating and heartbreaking. Here I am sitting in the comfort of my home writing this feeling utterly useless so this link (https://www.theglobeandmail.com/world/article-how-to-help-ukraine-canada/) has some helpful information on what you can do to help. The Canadian government is also matching donations made to the Red Cross. With work being especially busy and the world falling apart, it’s been hard to concentrate and de-stress. Let me know what you do to relax! I could use some tips and tricks.

Favourite quote of the month:
“But wherever you’re headed when this life is over Quinlan, that’s where I want to be too.” – House of Sky and Breath
Without further ado…. here is where I feature my top two books from differing genres, but this month I could only pick one.
House of Sky and Breath is action packed as Maas further develops the world and characters then brings it all home in an ending to end all endings.
House of Earth and Blood is the beginning of a fantastic fantasy series that doesn’t take itself too seriously while delivering well developed characters and a vast world with almost limitless possibilities. I have no idea where the story goes from here, but I don’t care because I’m along for the ride no matter what. Five Stars
The Might Hurt has an interesting premise but falls flat in its execution. It’s a slow paced thriller that takes too long to hook readers. Three Stars
Fix Her Up is an outdated, cookie cutter romance from 2014 that had no business being published in 2019. A naïve and “innocent” main character coupled with a possessive manwhore love interest with some misogyny sprinkled throughout for good measure makes Fix Her Up is a type of romance novel best left in 2014. One Star
The Stardust Thief is an excellent introduction to The Sandsea Trilogy rife with interesting characters and intricate world building made real with in-world stories and jinn magic. Four Stars
Haunting Adeline goes beyond the classification of dark romance. Instead, it’s a novel about sexual assault where the main character tries to convince herself she isn’t being assaulted repeatedly because it was the best orgasm she’s ever had. DNF at 298 of 539
The War of Two Queens intensifies the tension, the stakes, and the world as the characters are ushered into what feels like a new world but is still grounded in the characters readers have grown to love. Four Stars
Have you read any of these? What did you think? What did you read in the month of February?
