February Book Wrap Up

Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline CareyWow this month has been one with lots of changes and ups and downs. So grab a cup of tea, or coffee, and let’s chat!

On the review side, I reviewed a total of ten books, posted two diversity spotlight posts, one collaboration, one Top Ten Tuesday, and one Bibliophile Friday. On the personal side, this month I finished my internship (which greatly infringed on my reading time and made life a bit more stressful) and had to re-evaluate what I was going to do afterwards. Things that were hard and stressful.

Challenge wise:

I posted one pure discussion post and a tag which brings my grand total up to four discussion posts this year. That does not even take into consideration a character tag I did or my diversity posts, Top Ten Tuesdays or Bibliophile Fridays. All in all, I am doing pretty well and my goal was only ten for the year. Plus I have already a few in the works for March.

Diversity wise, I have been increasing my read of diverse books and diversity spotlight posts. I have also bought more diverse books than non-diverse books. I do not want to give myself too much praise, but I do think I am making important progress. Also I am impressed I kept up, so far with the Diverse Read Monthly prompts. In January I read, Spirits Abroad which is based on a lot of folklore. Additionally, in February I reviewed Everything I Never Told You, but also read When the Moon Was Ours (which I will review in March)

As for Netgalley and Edelweiss I have been making really great progress here. I have read, so far, five advance reads from those two sites. Being as my goal was only ten, I think that I am basically finished with this challenge already, since I read eight in January. I will give myself praise for this, because that is a lot of advance reads! I am going to keep going and maybe get to the next levels though.

Traitor's Blade by Sebastien de CastellMy favorite book from February

This is so difficult for me to choose since I read some fantastic books! My top three have to be Pachinko, Everything Belongs to Us, and the first two of the Greatcoats books. Since I have sung so many praises about the first two books, I think it is high time I picked a different one. So my favorite of this month is Knight’s Shadow. I enjoyed it more than the first book, by a smidge, because I already knew the characters. You can find a full review of this book and the first one, but in short, I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoy epic fantasy, plots of intrigue, and characters with class and humor.

  1. I want to read Pachinko too. I’m trying to read more diverse books as well as debut author books this year.
