Since I didn’t read a lot in February I figured I’d just combine my February Wrap Up with my March TBR to make it a bit quicker and easier. I only managed to finish 2 books in February (I started 2 others) despite having a really good reading month in January so I’m kind of disappointed. Hopefully I can make up for it in March! So here are the books I read in February –
Captive Prince by C. S. Pacat ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
This was such a captivating (no pun intended) read, it gripped me from start to finish and I immediately ordered the second book once I finished. Captive Prince focuses on political intrigue and relationships that develop in this historical fantasy-esque society where slavery (particularly sex slavery) is the norm. The main relationship is so unhealthy and messed up and though I fundamentally disagree with the characters actions I just really want to see how it plays out which was the main factor that kept me reading. Captive Prince basically goes against everything I stand for but I couldn’t put it down. It’s very intriguing but very violent and disturbing so I recommend looking into potential triggers before reading. I was really gripped by this book though so I can’t wait to continue on with the series because I just can’t see how the story is going to work itself out.
Stalking Darkness by Lynn Flewelling ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A great sequel to an amazing first novel. I loved how the story developed in this book and delved deeper into the relationship between Seregil and Alec as well as expanded upon secondary characters such as Beka (who I love). I don’t really want to go into too much detail as this is the sequel but I will say that this book took a lot of unexpected twists and turns and I loved it. I definitely recommend picking this series up if you’re looking for a fun but intriguing epic fantasy. You can find my review of the first book here.
This month’s TBR is a bit big seeing as I didn’t read much in February but these are the books I’d really like to get to and the pile I’ll be choosing from this month so I figured I’d just list them all. The books I hope to read are –
Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens (I’ve started this and I’m really liking it!)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (I read this a long time ago but I want to refresh my memory for Jane Steele.)
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
Chasing the Stars by Malorie Blackman
Prince’s Gambit by C. S. Pacat
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Thanks for reading! 🙂
