I would just like to point out that everyone is out there living their best lives reading the new SJM book and here I am, not reading it, AND LIVING MY ABSOLUTE BEST LIFE.
Thank you more entertaining my one moment of pettiness. I just really needed to let that loose. Phew. Thanks.
Okay so…February was a MONTH, but also a pretty amazing one for reading if I do say so myself! I had two books enter my all time favourites list this month and that is MIRACULOUS! Truly an iconic month! That one extra day really made a difference.
March on the other hand is going to be HELL ON EARTH! I can feel it in my soul and see it on the calendar full of due dates and exam dates. If you’re into prayer, please pray for me. If you’re into spell casting, cast a spell for me (a good one). If you’re into vibez, please send me all the good vibez!

THE TWO BOOKS THAT TOTALLY ROCKED MY WORLD
The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso
The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu
Two titles that are so different, but totally changed my life. I have not felt the ease of giving a perfect five starts in a long time. I’ve had five star reads, but still in the back of my mind were reservations about them. Not these two. These were instant 5 star reads for me. I am so overwhelmed by emotion when I think about them. And when I say they are totally different, they ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
One is an adult high fantasy with lots of murder and backstabbing and general mind-fuckery (excuse my language) and the other is a YA historical fantasy that is an emotional roller coaster that made me sob.
I AM IN LOVE WITH BOTH OF THEM!
WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO THE SHADOW & BONE TV SERIES!
Filming has wrapped and y’all the video they put out. The one with all the cast! The one with my cheeky son, Ben Barnes. I died. I died. I died. BUT I AM LIVING because I cannot wait for more news! Especially since there is a trailer that allegedly exists!
LITERALLY NOTHING ELSE EXCITING HAPPENED.
It was just another month for the books. I mean I would talk about stuff that happened in March, but then what would I have to write about next month!

We are definitely going to play March by ear. Of course there are some things coming our way LIKE THE RELEASE OF MULAN WHICH I PLAN ON SEEING OPENING NIGHT! Even though I’ll have ten things due the following week hehehehe…
Let me know what you think! How was your February? Did you read anything life changing? Did that extra day help topple the TBR?
