February was an unexpectedly good reading month for me. I ended up reading 32 books, which is amazing considering it’s more than there are days in the month. I’m really impressed with myself, especially since I hit my goal of 50 books minimum this year. I also picked up some really exciting books this month. You’ll find them all below the cut!

**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced readers copy of The Initial Insult by Mindy McGinnis through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this opportunity.
The Initial Insult by Mindy McGinnis is a young adult contemporary mystery novel. However, it is also a retelling of one of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic stories. It revolves around two girls, Felicity and Tress. Felicity was with Tress’ parents when they went missing seven years ago, and Tress has plans to figure out what happened to them. The Initial Insult is set to be published on February 23rd. I rated it four stars on GoodReads.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue was one of my favourite books of 2020. I got it as an eARC, and I was absolutely obsessed with it. It was really beautifully written, and I really loved the story. Overall, it just really worked for me. So when I finished reading it, I knew that I had to try and get the OwlCrate box. I was lucky enough to have gotten a box, and overall I was really pleased with it.
February is going to be a busier month for me as my schedule changes at school and I have more courses to teach. However, I’m still hoping to get a fair amount of reading done, and I might have a somewhat ambitious TBR as a consequence. I’m going to list the books I’m planning on reading below the cut.
