Another month and another wrap up post. Feels like it was only days ago that I posted my January one! While it felt like my January momentum didn’t quite last into February, it was still a decent reading month.
- Upright Women Wanted – Sarah Gailey
- Velvet Was The Night – Silvia Moreno – Garcia
- These Violent Delights – Chloe Gong
- The Ivory Key – Akshaya Raman
- Legends & Lattes – Travis Baldree
- Galatea – Madeline Miller
Only 3 of these were on my 2022 TBR – the others all somehow managed to sneak in! I also started a subscription with Scribd in an attempt to get into audiobooks and that was how Upright Women Wanted (which I did enjoy), ended up sneaking onto my list.
Legends & Lattes and These Violent Delights were my 2 standouts this month. I loved Legends & Lattes and even though I finished These Violent Delights a couple of weeks ago, I’m still reeling from that book. I’m still trying to gather some coherent thoughts for a review, so I may combine it with a review of Our Violent Ends.
Goodreads / Storygraph reading challenges:
Another 6 books in February means I’m up to 13 books read so far in 2022. That means I’m just over a quarter of the way to achieving my goal for this year! I’m happy with the progress I’m making, so that’s all good 🙂
With regards to the Hodderscape challenge I’m doing, I only read one book for that and that was These Violent Delights. I’m not too worried about how many books a month I read for this challenge – it’s designed to be spread out over the year. Anyway, most of the books on that TBR aren’t out until later in the year, so I have plenty of time to whittle down my Kindle and physical backlog first before trying to complete this.
In terms of my other goals, I read 2 books from my Kindle backlog and 3 books from new-to-me authors (the numbers aren’t huge, but it’s progress!) While I’m hoping to keep that momentum, I don’t have much of a TBR for March – I’m hoping to get through my Illumicrate backlog, but let’s see how many of them I can get through! Other than that, I’m planning more of a mood based TBR.
I’m still trying to get into the swing of things with blogging and having a regular posting schedule, so hopefully March will be the month I can get into a good rhythm.
On that note, I hope everyone’s March reading goes well and I look forward to seeing how your month goes 🙂

My January reading momentum also didn’t last into February and I put myself into a bit of a reading slump that I’m now crawling out of. I hope you have a wonderful March!
Oh no 😦 I hope you have a wonderful March too!
