Here ends the shortest month of the year, quickly gone once again. February was full of even more revelations about the constantly morphing nature of this blog, which is both exhausting and relieving. I’m slowly making this blog what I want it to be – and hopefully what you want to read. So, I’ll start with the new plan.
I’m going to keep updates to a minimum, only talking about myself and my writing in the wrap-up and TBR posts at the beginning and end of the month. I’ll try and be more detailed in what I talk about there, in case there are those who want to hear about it. Otherwise, all posts with be reviews. I’m going to put a pause on posts that aren’t reviews so that I can focus on getting books read, reviews written, and posts posted.
I’m starting this plan in March with eight reviews. If you want to read more reviews by me, take a look at my Goodreads page (where I review eARCs). As always, feedback is more than welcome! If reviews are what you want to see, let me know! If you want specific others, let me know about that too!
Next up on the docket are the books I read this month:
– A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout
– A Thief Among the Trees by Sabaa Tahir, Nicole Andelfinger, and Sonia Liao
– ReDawn by Brandon Sanderson
– Renegades by Marissa Meyer
– Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
– Evershore by Brandon Sanderson
– Defending Elysium by Brandon Sanderson
– The Almost Wife by Gail Anderson-Dargatz
– House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
– Josh and Gemma Make a Baby by Sarah Ready
Compared to the nine books I read in February 2021, I improved upon my tally and read a whole ten books in February 2022! I’m very pleased with the pace I’m reading at, and I hope to continue it into March!
My favourite read of the month was The Almost Wife. It surprised me and sucked me in, despite being very different from my usual reads. A thriller, The Almost Wife is a story of secrets, lies, and how terrible those become once they come to light. If you want to read my review of it, head on over to www.ormsbyreview.com and subscribe to their email list. My review will be posted in the next few months.
I don’t have a least favourite for the month, since all of the novels I read were well-written and very enjoyable.
Now, a writing update. I wanted this to be more substantial, but I’m still very pleased with the fact that I wrote at all.
I wrote the first two chapters of my novel, reaching 2000 words in just one day of writing. I can’t wait to keep going, if only life would let me. I’ve been sick for the last seven days with a head cold that’s kept me from doing a whole lot of anything other than reading. I’m almost over it now, and then I’m going to be writing with a vengeance.
Thank you for tuning into my February 2022 wrap-up! See you tomorrow to talk more about what’s going on here in March!
