February 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my February wrap up and I think my reading slump is finally over as I managed to read everything that was on my TBR! The first two books I didn’t enjoy but the last two were incredible and a great way to end the month! Here’s what I read:

 

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare: I finally finished this beast and while it wasn’t my favourite or anything like I was expecting, it was still a nice ending to this trilogy. I didn’t enjoy how the fantasy part took a backseat to the romance and how heavily it focused on events that happened in City of Heavenly Fire but I can’t deny that Cassie knows how to make her fans happy. Despite not enjoying this one, I’m still very much looking forward to her three 2019 releases! Also looking forward to seeing more of these characters and hopefully some better plots for them!

February 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! I don’t know about you but I’m so glad January is over now. It was such an awful month and it felt so long! I’m looking forward to pulling myself out of my slump this month and getting much more books read! You’re probably wondering why I’m even setting myself a TBR this month after the disaster that was January but it is with good reason. If I don’t set myself something, I know I won’t end up reading anything. Here is what I’m hoping to read:

Vengeful by V.E. Schwab: The first book I want to tackle this month is Vengeful! I’m going away this weekend and will be taking this with me so I don’t end up on my iPad binge watching The Office which I have seen so many times! I started it last year and got about 60 pages in and I already could tell I would love it so I am really hoping I’ll be able to fly through it over the weekend! I might potentially restart it in case I’ve forgotten anything as I wasn’t that far in.
