Hello Hello! How are you all?

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already March!!! 2020 is going by so fast! This is my first ever wrap-up I’m doing here on my blog, so please bear with me.

This month I stuck to my planned TBR, I didn’t finish all the books, but I got through quite a few so I think I can safely say that the reading slump is over! In February, I read 5 books, okay, it isn’t great, but it’s better compared to January and I’m hoping to manage way more in March! The books I read were all so good and it was such a good reading month!

BOOKS READ

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – 4 stars

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)

You can find my review for it here. I really enjoyed this book, I had been putting it off for so long because of all the hype, but I was so happy that Noly and I finally got around to reading it in February because I’m in love with this world and these characters and I neeeeed to read the next one!

The Field Guide by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi – 4 stars

The Field Guide (The Spiderwick Chronicles #1)

This was another book that we picked for the #hypeathonreadathon and it didn’t disappoint. I hadn’t read any Middle Grade/Children’s books in a while so this was like a breath of fresh air and I got through it so fast! It was lovely and I can’t wait to read the other books in the series. You can read my review for this one here.

Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – 4 stars

Aurora Rising (The Aurora Cycle, #1)

WOWOWOW! I’m so happy I finally got to this one after ignoring it for the past year because I instantly thought that it wouldn’t be my type of book, but I was so wrong. This was so different but also incredible and I can’t wait to get my hands on the second book in the series because this series has the potential to be on my favourite series list! You can find my review here.

Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibanez – 4 stars

Woven in Moonlight

I think this is the first Fairyloot book that I’ve been able to read since October! There was a little time back there when I wasn’t too impressed with their book choices or didn’t even get the time to read a single page, let alone the whole book, so I’m pleased that I was able to get to this one this month! The Bolivian context and setting were so beautiful, I loved everything about this book, especially all the food descriptions, it made me so hungry! And those little animals are the cutest! I’ll be putting up my review for this one in the next few days so keep a lookout!

Away With the Penguins by Hazel Prior – 5 stars

This book is officially my second 5-star read of 2020 and wow, this one deserves it so much! I didn’t have the time to read Ellie and The Harp Maker by Hazel Prior last year, so when I saw that Anne Cater from the #RandomThingsTours was hosting the Blog Tour for Away with the Penguins, I jumped on the chance and it did not disappoint! I was so happy I was able to cram this in during the Leap Year Readathon by Fiona over at Fi’s Bibliofiles and I still can’t get over just how beautiful this book was. My review and blog tour stop will be up on the 8th of March, and I can’t wait to write this review for you all to read it!

Those were all my February books, I feel like I achieved something this month and these were some awesome books! I can’t wait to see what March has in store for me, hopefully, I can start tackling my TBR and my Goodreads challenge because I am still some books behind already.

Over 5 books I read a total of 1,685 pages, with an average rating of 4.2 stars, over 2 YA fantasies, 1 children’s/middle grade, 1 science-fiction and 1 contemporary.

Tell me in the comments what books you read in February and what you thought of them!

That’s all for now, see you soon,

Ellie xx
