Bookish Roundup — February, 2018

Feb-2018-Roundup

While the month of love has passed, my love for reading has not. With the end of February, the time to share its month’s reads has come. Y’all, my reading list was all over the place this month. We’re talking the good, the bad, and the ugly. But even the ugly garnered a four-starred review, so I’m not complaining. This month held a healthy mix of both adult and YA fiction. Unfortunately, I did not keep up with my goal to read a minimum of one non-fiction book per month. I suppose this means I will have to redeem myself by reading at least two non-fiction works during another month this year. Ugh. Yay!! All right, y’all, without further ado…

Books I Read In February:

Y’all, I read some amazing fiction in February – and some that was not-so-amazing. But let’s talk about the positives, shall we? Amber Smith’s The Last to Let Go was just as powerful as her previous novel, The Way I Used to Be – she is definitely an author to keep on your radar. Dime, by E.R. Frank, was brutal (major trigger warnings, btw) but necessary and even though it was hard to read, I’m glad I did. Teen human trafficking is real, and this novel brought that to life in a big way. They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera was both tenderly sorrowful and full of humor at the same time, and How to Stop Time by Matt Haig was just plain amazing – Haig is definitely someone whose previous work I’m looking up. Many of the other novels I read were darn stinkin’ good as well, but the above mentioned were my faves of the month.

March is almost here, and the weather is starting to heat up just a bit. Temps today here in Nebraska reached the 60’s and I rejoiced as I relaxed on my front porch with my current read. Does it matter that it’s supposed to snow tomorrow? No. No, it does not – because I got in a beautiful day of warmth and sunshine, and I’ll take what I can get after months of clouds and cold. I hope wherever you are, the sun is shining down on you as well. Happy Reading, y’all!!
