Hey y’all! Today I will be talking about the 6 books that I read in February. It was a slow reading month for me, but I think I have finally overcome my slump. Here are the books that I completed in February:
The Toll by Neal Shusterman – This concluding novel in the Arc of the Scythe series was a pretty good conclusion. I really want to re-read the whole series because I don’t think I got everything I needed out of this book. I want to do a full series review of this story.
Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb – This is a non-fiction book about a therapist and her experience with working and going to see her own therapist. Equally hilarious and heartbreaking I definitely recommend. I will elaborate in an upcoming non-fiction wrapup.
Jackson by Emily March – This is the first book in the Eternity Springs series. These are romance books that take place in a small Texas town and follows three cousins. I read it because I have an ARC of the second book. I really enjoyed this story and I am interested to see where the rest of the books go. I’m especially excited to read the next book, Tucker, because he was one of my favorite side characters in this book.
All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely – I LOVED this book. It is a story that looks into racial divides, media coverage, and speaking up. If you’ve been following for a while, you will know that I love Jason Reynolds and this book was no exception.
Initiation by Melanie Gill – I received this BDSM romance from Scarlet Lantern Publishing for free in exchange for an honest review. Since I don’t often read BDSM romances, I didn’t really have any expectations. Jonah, the main character, runs into a woman at the bar who gives him her number and invites him to this exclusive club. When he gets there he is surprised because it is a sex club. Jonah gets invited to join the club and things happen. The sex in this books was steamy, the consent was explicit, and I felt like it really explained BDSM to people who don’t know what it is exactly. I enjoyed it and am interested to see if this is a series, because I’m curious to see what happened to some of the side characters.
A Guest of the Reich by Peter Finn – This was my library’s book club pick. This is a non-fiction about a wealthy woman who was captured by the Nazi’s during World War II and how she wasn’t treated like a regular prisoner. I didn’t really enjoy this book. The person it was profiling was privileged and didn’t seem to understand the seriousness about what was going on around her. I have more thoughts that I will discuss in an upcoming post.
Well these are all of the books that I read in the month of February. It’s a solid number of books but no where near what I am capable of doing. I did watch a lot of tv though.
What was your favorite read of February? All American Boys was mine, but who is really surprised.
