February reading wrap up

Somehow, it's March already. WHAT IS HAPPENING. WHAT. IS. HAPPENIIIIIIIIIING?!?!?!?! *deep breath* Okay. I'm okay. February's over, so it's time to tell y'all what I read during the past month!

Books read: 31. I swear, I have literally no idea how that happened...
New vs rereads: 16 vs 15. That's a huge improvement towards equal numbers over last month!
Most read genre: Contemporary took out first place with 8 books. Fantasy was in second place with six.
Favourite book: My highest rated book this month was North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. But considering that's a reread it feels like cheating. So as far as new books go, I think it was a tie between Ellie Marney's Every Move and I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios. They were both fabulous.
Least favourite book: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith. This one was a reread, so I should have been prepared for it. And yet...
Favourite cover: I'll Meet You There. The cover was pretty perfect.

Diverse Books Project: I've ploughed through all the stuff I'd planned out, so from here on in, things may get a little trickier. I've still got a bunch of books to pick from, and there's a few coming out in April that I'm pretty excited about reading. But at the moment, I'm stuck in not-super-excited-about-this-book land. Which is sad.

On the plus side, I finally worked out how to do custom thumbnails, so that's pretty damned exciting!









February's tallies weren't much different to January's. I read 2 graphic novels, 2 non-fiction books, and 26 novels. There are links to my Goodreads reviews below!

I have to say, I'm a little impressed that I haven't rated a single thing under 2 stars so far this year. I don't know if this means I'm making better book choices or if I"m just less critical than I was last year...

What did you read in February?

  6. Isn't it so exciting to figure out how to do custom thumbnails? VEDA is going to be so much more enjoyable for me this year.
