Hey loves! Doesn’t it always feel like February just flies by! It’s only 2-3 days shorter than most months, but I feel like I just blink and it’s gone!
- You’d Be Mine: 4.5 stars | This book did an incredible job of describing music and musicians, which really connected with me, and I love it so much.
- Nightblood: 3.5 stars | I love loved the fantasy part of this book, but I absolutely hated the romance, so I guess 3.5 stars is a good average…
- The Wicked King: 5 stars | OHMYGOD WOEIFJDSKLOIEWFJSDKL I love Jude x Cardan and I didn’t see anything coming and I need the third book more than I need life.
- That Inevitable Victorian Thing: 2 stars | This book had such a great premise and I was so excited but the world building was a mess and overall I didn’t like it.
- A Spark of White Fire: 4 stars | The romance was weird but this science fantasy world was so amazing and I can’t wait for the sequel!
- The Gilded Wolves: 4 stars | I was getting some serious Six of Crows vibes from this book and I loved the heist and diverse characters.
- Siege and Storm: 3.5 stars | Love square…why? Nikolai is bae though and I love him to death.
- Ruin and Rising: 4 stars | This book wasn’t incredible but I did really enjoy and now I can read King of Scars!!!
- The Sound and the Fury: 1 star | I had to read this for English class and I HATED it so much stream of consciousness is incomprehensible and yeah I know nothing.
- The Girl At Midnight: 3.5 stars | I loved this cool urban fantasy with monsters in secret underground worlds…but it was also awfully similar to Daughter of Smoke and Bone…
- Once A Witch: 2.5 stars | This book was kind of annoying and underdeveloped and instalove and cliches so yeah.
I read a total of 11 books this month! My average rating was 3.4 stars, which is not the best for me, but I had some really amazing reads in there (wickedkingaosidfjkasoifdklj) so I’m happy!

Lately I’ve been messing around with my blog’s branding/images/etc, and I drew myself a profile pic with Adobe Illustrator! My old one was a picture of my bookshelf that I hated, but I love this one because it goes with my brand, hammock of books, with the reading in the hammock and all. I’m also super proud that I drew it myself because I’m definitely not good at drawing. I thought about trying to do vector style drawing, but
I’m not good enough to do that my blog has watercolor images, like these flower dividers, so I love this one better. Please validate me tell me what you think!
