Hey everyone! I’m a little late on this one but better late than never, right? I read some great books this month and I made some great progress on my Goodreads goal for the year. For the first few months this year I wanted to get ahead of my goal by quite a bit because one of my goals this year is to finally read War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. With that book sitting around 1400 pages, I need some wiggle room so I don’t get behind in my goal. I’m currently 25 books ahead of schedule so my plan is to start War and Peace on April 1st. Anyways… more on that another time.
I also did a lot of re-reads in February to refresh for a couple of new releases. I re-read The Bone Season books plus the new novella to prepare for my current read of The Mask Falling which was published in January. I also re-read the A Court of Thorns and Roses series to refresh for Nesta and Cassian’s book, A Court of Silver Flames which I ended up finishing at the end of the month. I also got some library holds in for books that I have been wanting to read forever – The Silent Patient and Where the Crawdads Sing.

February Book Haul: I ended up getting a lot of books throughout the month as well. I was finally able to get copies of the rest of the Bridgerton series as well as the prequel series. I’m really looking forward to continuing with those and seeing what’s in store for the rest of the Bridgerton family. Both Target and Amazon had a buy 2 get 1 free sale so of course I had to jump on that. From Target I got Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson, The Guest List by Lucy Foley, and The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse. I was super excited that Kristin Hannah’s newest novel, The Four Winds, was a choice for February Book of the Month. From Amazon I got What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon and a couple of the Bridgerton books.
For March I’m going to be focusing on The Mask Falling and also catching up on some advanced copies that I’m pretty far behind on. I want to start April off with a clean slate so I can focus on War and Peace.
