February Wrap Up/March TBR

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.

I also started A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab and Mercury Striking by Rebecca Zanetti  and I hope to finish them both in March.

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

I also want to read a few books that were on last month’s TBR such as Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb and Traitor’s Moon by Lynn Flewelling.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

February Wrap Up/March TBR

February Wrap Up

During February I read a total of 7 books which I think is a decent amount seeing as I’ve been occupied with coursework. I’m pretty happy with the amount of reading I got done and I’m hoping I keep it up in March. The books I read were –

Saga Volume 2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Holy Cow by David Duchovny   ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

My Rebellion Checklist by Susan Soares  ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (Probably a 3.5)

Waiting for Doggo by Mark Mills  ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

Winter Siege by Ariana Franklin and Samantha Norman  ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (4.5)

Finn Fancy Necromancy by Randy Henderson  ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

The Three by Sarah Lotz  ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

All of these except Saga were review books so expect reviews in the near future! My review for Holy Cow is linked above.


March TBR

Reading The Three has sort of kickstarted me into reading more because I really liked it and I think this weird reading slump I’ve been in is nearly over. The books I hope to read during March are –

Canary by Duane Swierczynski (I’ve just started this!)

Sweet Nothing by Richard Lange

No Hero by Jonathan Wood

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver

The Leopards of Normandy: Devil by David Churchill

Saga Volume 3 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers (I’ve been saying this for months but hopefully I will…)

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

I also want to try to read one of my many unread classics so I’m hoping to read either The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde or Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I know I probably won’t get to most of these but I’m hoping for the best!
Let me know in the comments what you read during February or what you’re going to read in March. 🙂
