February 2019 In Review

Wait, how can it already be the end of the month??? That's so crazy. The month is already gone, y'all gone!! Well since it's gone here are the books I have read, the reviews I have written and a recap of all the awesomeness that came my way.

Books Read This Month: 6  Yearly Goal: 150  Balance: 132

Book Club Read: 
Becoming by Michelle Obama
This was my absolute favorite read for the month, hands down my favorite for the year. I can't rave about it enough. Full Review pending

For the #ReadSoulLit challenge on booktube I picked up  Unforgivable Love by Sphfronia Scott. (This is the only book I didn't own, borrowed from the library to read for the challenge)

I seemed to be on a Nora Roberts Binge this month and read:
  1. Luring a Lady
  2. Falling for Rachel
  3. Convincing Alex
  4. Waiting for Nick 
  5. Considering Kate
All of these were from the Stanislaski family saga, which I started in January. I was very happy to finish the series. Especially because I got to physically move 4 books from the Nora Roberts Shelf over to the Read mass market bookshelf.  

Working on the Finishing up Series

I pulled Monica Murphy's Torn which for a book that was 234 pages took me forever. I didn't feel in the mood for romance. *Shock, gasp Sacrilegious* and so I wasn't really in love with the story. I'm going to honor that feeling this month and go with more non-fiction books as that's what I feel called to.  I did love the story once I paid attention to it, so I will continue on with the series.

Book Hauls:

Because I'm reading my bookshelves this year, I once again didn't have much to haul. I did have pre-order come in though: Stacking The Shelves

On The Come Up by Angie Thomas (author of the smash The Hate U Give). No idea what it's about but I pre-ordered as soon as I knew about the link.

And when in Boston visiting my sister we stopped by an independent comic book slash bookstore and I snagged a copy of Binti  (the Complete Trilogy) by Nnedi Okorafor. The cover is amazing and I really couldn't justify to my cheap self paying 10 to 12 dollars each for a 90 page book, but I had no qualms about snagging this gorgeous baby.
