So I blinked and apparently February is over?! I’m getting ready to start winding down my reading expectations and I’m trying very hard to get some blog posts written up in advance since I’m assuming have a baby will probably be a tad bit time consuming. I hopefully won’t be going on a complete hiatus, but I know my attention span after baby#1 wasn’t even capable of tracking a basic sitcom, let along a full-length novel.
I managed to read six books this month! Two were for book tours, one was from my TBR pile, and three were part of a trilogy reread. I’ve noticed as a side effect of pregnancy I can have some pretty horrific nightmares, so I think rereads and ‘lighter’ reading will be the main focus of the next couple of months.
Here are the books I read this month:
The Abyss Within Anthology (2020):
The Abyss Within was a fun horror anthology, and it will probably be my last scary read for a while. I was very glad to be a part of this book tour, it was actually the first tour I have taken part in! Check out my review here!
House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig (2019):
In preparation for Erin A. Craig’s new book, Small Favors (July 2021), I finally got around to reading House of Salt and Sorrows! This was a sea-flavoured fairytale retelling with a healthy dose of romance. I will be writing the review for it later this month, be sure to keep an eye out!
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (2014):
The first in the series, I feel like this one was the strongest of the three novels. I read it for the first time back when it was initially released, so I could barely remember it this time around.
The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (2015):
Invasion held up pretty well for a sequel, in my opinion. I remembered a bit more of this book, so there weren’t any major surprises for me during this read through.
The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (2016):
I have to admit, the third book in this series was my least favourite. It didn’t ruin the reread for me, I just wasn’t the biggest fan of how everything wrapped up in the end. My review of the series can be found here!
The Fractured Globe by Angela Fish (2020):
This is the second book tour book I read this month! It was very different from The Abyss Within, but still a good read overall. My stop on the book tour is on Saturday, March 6th, so keep an eye out for my review on this weekend!
This month was less successful than January, but I blame the fact that February is shorter. Clearly those three days make all the difference.
Did you read any of these books in February? What books are on your March TBR pile? Let me know in the comments!
