Happy March friends!! Not sure how we got here, but it’s happening! (Anyone else feel like all of our intros to these posts are us just being like ‘WOW TIME FLIES!!’ because clearly we don’t understand that time moves fast AF.)
We consume so many books in a month, that we don’t always get the chance to talk about all of our favorites. So, we’ve decide to set aside a monthly post specifically for talking about our favorite reads that would have otherwise flown under the radar.
As February officially winds down it seems I’ve had a better reading month than expected, especially for how slow I felt I was going through books. (I did a lot of hopping around mid-books, so I don’t think that helped me any.) Anyways, I’ve already written reviews for two of this month’s reads (You Have a Match & Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch), so honestly it must be a month of exceptional reads. Including the books above, I’ve also finished off the final Magicians book, The Magician’s Land, which really made the first two books worthwhile. A much better ending for the entire crew too, especially Quinten. (The TV adaptation truly screws every single person over). I also started a reread of the Avatar: the Last Airbender comics, for nostalgia sake, but also because they kept making more?? That I haven’t read?? And my library has all of them?? So, my choice was clear. I’m currently loving the re-immersion into the world of the Avatar, but reading a single arc spilt across three different library loans is it’s own unique kind of torture. (My current reads shelf on GR is a very messy disaster right now.) I also read You Should See Me in a Crown this month, but I think it’s another February read that deserves its very own review. It was absolutely too fricken cute for anything less.
Oh February…My reading this month was just a lot. I read mostly 3.5 star books which is fine that’s a pretty good rating for me and I did enjoy most of the books I read this month. I also went back to school at the end of January so I read way less this month. I only rated one book five stars this month and that was Hood Feminism. I listened to it on audio and it is a book that is going to stick with my for a long time. I need to pick up a copy so I can go back to it and mark up the sections I want to remember. This nonfiction book talks about intersectional feminism and all of the women that the feminist movement has left behind. If you’re a white feminist, you have to read this one. I’ve seen it paired with Eloquent Rage which we both read and enjoyed. It talks about racism, food insecurity, gun violence, abusive relationships, and more. I meant to list triggers, but I did not list them out (I need to do better with this). But, please if you have strong triggers or are not in the best headspace, read with care.
What were some of your top reads this month?
