February has been an interesting month, but somewhat light on book purchasing for me. Other than my OwlCrate, I didn’t technically buy any books this month. My order from Amazon that came in was full of pre-orders and things purchased previously. I did buy some books for my classroom library through this cool event hosted by my school district, but I didn’t specifically pay for those. So like I said, an interesting month. Everything I got is listed below the cut.
Archives for February 2020
**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reader’s copy of You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to them and the publishers for this opportunity.
You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is an adult mystery/thriller set in New York City. The events in the book center around the protagonist, Shay Miller, who is a data analyst unsatisfied with her lot in life and who gets caught up in a mystery. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads. It publishes on March 3rd, 2020.
This past month’s OwlCrate was pretty great. I had heard nothing about the book, but the collection of items in the box was really great!
Welcome to a new segment that Kari and I are introducing to the blog: #bestiemademe! This is where we each recommend a book to the other for the month to read and review. This month I read The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowksi, which is 0.5 in The Witcher series.
Today I’ve proudly teamed up with TLC Book Tours to highlight a great read! This is the third and final installation for The Initiation Series, entitled The Insurrection. Author Chris Babu gives a YA dystopian world that’s a fast paced read and very, very exciting!
**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reader’s copy of Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to them and the publishers for this opportunity.
Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin is a Macbeth retelling as a YA contemporary novel. All the characters from the iconic Shakespearean tragedy have been translated into well off high school students in sunny California. I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads.
I love dark academia with a fiery passion in my soul. Ninth House was probably the number one of my must reads for 2019 releases and I’m extremely excited to say that it did not disappoint at all! I own every one of Leigh Bardugo’s books and as much as I love the Grishaverse, I believe that Alex Stern has made her way to the number one place in my heart.
Did you know February has 29 days this year? That’s pretty cool. I figured that out when I was creating this list.
It’s a Leap Year this year! It’s so weird to have this one little bonus day, and I’m kind of excited because it’s one more day of reading for me. I have a nice variety of books I’m planning on picking up this month. You’ll find them below the cut.
