February Wrap-Up!

I uh…got really busy this month and lost all my reading/blogging mojo. AND I’ll be gone for most of March so this whole “hey, I finally feel like thinking about books again” thing is really unfortunate timing! With that being said…at least it’s back? And I’m genuinely sorry about being gone for so long, I did not mean to stop blog-hopping and I’m upset that it happened. Hopefully, I’ll be back soon.

books

I only read two books this month as compared to January’s six…so I’m doing great! You know what they say, comparison is the thief of joy after all.

Flirting With Fate by J.C. Cervantes | I’m not entirely sure why, but this book just hit the right spot for me. It’s a speculative contemporary that follows Ava, who comes from a family where the women pass on blessings on their deathbed. When she misses her nana’s blessing because she, you know, crashes her car into a handsome stranger in the middle of a hurricane, she realizes that HE got her blessing instead and now she has to befriend him. I don’t know why but this story felt wholly magical to me while still being a feel-good, funny contemporary! I also loved the Mexican representation. 4/5 stars!

Cinder and Glass by Melissa De La Cruz | You know, it’s funny how magical Cinderella retellings feel even when they don’t have any magic. This particular retelling of CInderella is magicless in 1700s Paris, and it’s still a good time. In fact, what makes this one unique is that Cinder is in a competition for the prince’s hand while falling in love with his younger brother at the same time! Personally, I enjoyed aspects to this story. I just thought that certain things were underdeveloped such as the stepmother’s motivation. No rating yet!

some blog posts i enjoyed this month (before i fell off the face of the blogging earth)

Nyx shares a list of 10 feminist books that I immediately wanted to read because yes queens.

Riddhi did a collab talking about reviewing favorite books, and the throwback to Geronimo Stilton is everything.

Andge wrote a wonderful review talking about the famous true crime book I’ll Be Gone In The Dark, and you’d better believe it just moved up my TBR.

CW had a great interview for Black History Month.

Rachel wrote a post examining trends in murder mystery novels and I love it so much!

So that’s it for February! March will be full of traveling, but I’ll be doing my best to keep up as much as possible! Tell me a highlight of your February!

  3. I feel the whole break thing. That’s been me for half of January and it’s trickling into this month, lol. Life has been too much at the moment and I have been skipping out on writing blog posts unless it’s been written in advance. I hope March is a great month for you in general! ❤

  4. Wishing you all the best for March 💜 I hadn’t heard of Flirting with Fate before but consider me intrigued. The romance with the plot seems so much fun. I will have to check it out. I am so glad you enjoyed it!
