February is gone, and so is another month of reading challenges! February felt like a long month to me, despite its shortness, but at the same time, the last week barely existed. Isn’t time strange?
This month was a great success for me. While I didn’t get to everything I wanted to read (who does?), I did accomplish a great deal: Seven books during the shortest month, five of them ARCs! Catching up on ARCs has been a huge goal for me, so I’m happy to be doing it, and I’m finding some great books to be excited for release besides.
Let’s check them out!
The Five-Star Favs
- A book with a plant in the title or on the cover – PopSugar Reading Challenge 2019
- Cover with your favorite color – Pingel Sisters 2019 Reading Challenge
- A fairy tale – @MommyMannagren’s 52 Books in 52 Weeks Reading Challenge 2019
Plants are a feature of both the title and that sexy black cover of The Language of Thorns. Leigh Bardugo has crafted a short story collection full of original fairytales inspired by our own but applied to her fictional Grishaverse, and they’re all amazing. I’m always super impressed with people who can create new fairytales like this and make them feel like we’ve forgotten them but are now remembering them because that’s never easy.
