Hello again! We’re here with the books I read this past month, and my goals for next month as well! This may be a bit off because I am currently on my way to Walt Disney World (heck yes), so my final tally may not be exact to this. Below is the photo of my reading goals for February, so you can compare it to all of the books I actually read!
The Disasters by MK England
I started the month with this book, and it was so good that I couldn’t believe it. I read this incredibly fast, because I couldn’t get enough of it. I am a bit shocked that this is England’s debut novel! I can’t wait to read what they write next.
My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix
Holy guacamole, I started this month with such great books! This one blew me away, because it was the second Hendrix book I’ve read, and it was worlds better than the first! I really enjoyed reading it, and it was a fun book for everyone!
Hex Vet by Sam Davies
This was a children’s graphic novel that I fell in love with. It was short and incredibly sweet; I had such a good time reading this, even though it was only a short time.
Bloom by Kevin Panetta & Savanna Ganucheau
This is a graphic novel that I had been waiting for for quite awhile. Its a beautiful romance book, and I wanted to live in it forever.
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
I have been wanting to read this since I saw that they would be making a movie of it. So now I’ve both read it and seen it! I really enjoyed this, and am excited to someday read Puddin’.
The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this from Quirk, and I am so glad! This is a nerd spin on the Prince and the Pauper story. It’s set in the Geekerella universe, and so incredibly good. It comes out April 2nd, and you should preorder it now.
Giraffes on Horseback Salad by Josh Frank and illustrated by Manuela Peralta
Wow. This book was gorgeous and incredible and so much work went into it. I was blown away by it, because it’s a movie that was never made. The author got transcripts from Salvador Dali, worked with translators to put them in English, then worked with Tim Heidecker (of the Tim and Eric Show) to turn it into a full story. It’s mind boggling, and comes out March WHAT, and you should get your copy asap.
The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
I was going to save this one for my flight to Orlando, but I couldn’t resist the beautiful cover! I really enjoyed reading this, and I can’t wait to read more of the series!
(Don’t) Call Me Crazy edited by Kelly Jensen
This book has taken me forever. But I finally did it this month! It’s an incredible collection of essays on mental health, which makes it a bit difficult to get through. There’s a lot of emotion and feeling, but it’s well written. If you’re looking for something non-fiction for in between other books, this is for you!
Cheer Up, Mr Widdicombe by Evan James
This book took me awhile, but I (think) I finished it! You’ll have to check my instagram to be sure, but this is the book I brought on my flight to Orlando!
I found it really tough to decide on a favorite this month; I read a lot of great books! If it came down to it, I think Bloom, The Princess and the Fangirl, and The Disasters were my favorites. As for March, check out my TBR below!
Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
This is a dark fantasy that I’m pretty dang excited about. It’s about a captive princess; one whose family was killed right before her eyes.She was shamed and eventually forced to do something terrible that pushes her over the edge. I can’t wait to see what happens, and then check out the following two books.
Grim Lovelies by Meghan Sheppard
This is another dark fantasy, that has some murder in it. I’m really excited to dive into these darker books this month!
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
This is another that sounds like it may be dark fantasy! Our main character is the granddaughter of a well known author, who passes away. Soon after, her mother is kidnapped, and she has to decide who to cross to get her back.
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
This came out last month, and it takes place in the same area as The Hate U Give. I’m really excited to read about this main character, and learn about her (and see her raps)!
Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
This book’s movie adaptation comes out this month, and I’m really excited about it. I’ve heard that the book is incredible. This is in Orlando with me for the plane trip back to Maryland!
March has a lot more dark fantasy than I initially thought, but I’m hoping to get through it easily enough. I’ve currently read fifteen books this year, nine of which were last month alone! I hope to read more than what is on my list here, and share those with you too!
