February Wrap Up

I read 10 books this month and I'm very happy with what I have read! Three of them were physical books and 7 were e-books. 

1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt

I read and loved The Goldfinch years ago and I received The Secret History as a Christmas present two years ago. It was one of my personal goals to read it this year and I'm so glad I did! It was fantastic! I love Donna Tartt's writing style and I did not have any other choice than to give this gem 5 stars! Highly recommend it!

2. The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

I've been wanting to read this for so long and I finally did! It is a fantastic book and now one of my favourite classics! I know Holden Caulfield divides people in the book community but I loved him and he made perfect sense to me. Looking forward to reading more Salinger in the future! 5 stars! Again, highly recommend this one!

After reading these fantastic books and the events in my personal life put me into a bit of a reading slump and that's when I started to read e-books and novella's.

3. Criminal Enchantment (Enchanted, Inc. 0.5) by Shanna Swendson

I have read and loved the first five books in the series and I really want to continue it soon! When I got this novella as a free e-book, I couldn't resist. This is a lovely introduction to the characters from Sam's perspective, short but entertaining. 4 stars!

4. Someone to Wed (Westcott #3) by Mary Balogh

This was entertaining enough but the writing style and the repetitive emotions of the characters did annoy me at times. 3 stars.

5. The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband (Rokesbys, #2)
by Julia Quinn

This was quite a fun romance novel, ridiculous but entertaining. 3,5 stars!

6. Because of Miss Bridgerton (Rokesbys, #1) by Julia Quinn

After realizing this book featured love to hate romance I just had to pick it up and I enjoyed it! 3,5 stars! Looking forward to reading more books in this series!

7. Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk

I already reviewed this book, you can find my thoughts here. 4 stars!

8. Binti (Binti, #1) by Nnedi Okorafor

This was so different from what I expected. It was entertaining enough but I do not get all the hype. I am probably going to continue but I did find it confusing at times. My main problem was that it was too short to be a well-developed story. 3 stars. Still might change it to 2,5 stars.

9. Horimiya volume 1 by Hero, Daisuke Hagiwara 

I saw this one Missemmareadsalot booktube channel and I immediately wanted to pick it up, luckily I found the first volume as an e-book for only 1,99 euros. Really enjoyed this volume and I will definitely continue this manga series! It's so cute! 4 stars!

10. Kings of the Wyld (The Band #1) by Nicholas Eames 

Absolutely loved this book! It's an adult fantasy adventure novel and the character are incredible! I got attached to all of them immediately and I can't wait to read the sequel! If you're looking for an adult fantasy book with lots of humour, this is the book for you! 5 stars!

My favourite books last month were The Secret History, The Catcher in the Rye and Kings of the Wyld! Highly recommend them all!

  1. I'm one of the ones on the opposite side of the Holden arguement-I hated the guy! I plan to read Kings of the Wyld hopefully later this year. It sounds good!

    1. I can't recommend Kings of the Wyld more highly! I hope you'll enjoy it too!

  2. I just got The Secret History and after reading your thoughts on it I can't wait! I'm so excited to be able to chat about it with you! <3

  3. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed The Secret History. I loved The Goldfinch when I read it a couple of years ago and have been meaning to read more of Tartt's books ever since then.

    1. Exactly the same here, which is why I finally read The Secret History! I hope you'll get the chance to read it soon!

  4. Ten books in a month is great! I also really like The Secret History and The Catcher in the Rye. I hope you have a good March!
