I decided to wait until the end of February to write my February Wrap Up, which is why this is getting published on March 1st!
This month I read less than January and purchased/traded less books than I normally do. Typically I read between 10-15 books a month but in February I only read 5. Some of these books I’ve already reviewed or will be reviewing, so I won’t go in depth – but I will go into whether or not I would recommend it! I will also be discussing some of the March releases I’m most excited for!
To start, this month I read:
Honestly, I loved every book I read, except one, which is not bad! Out of all of these titles, the only one I would not recommend is The Cerulean by Amy Ewing because of certain issues with the book, which I discuss in my review. While this is significantly less than what I read in January, with all of the craziness that life handed me I’m happy that I reached 5 books this month and I hope to double it in March!
Now for my purchases; I mostly did trades with people and got some titles I’m excited to read! Some of these include Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan, Enchantée by Gita Trelease, and The Fever King by Victoria Lee! Recently I’ve been into trading with people for ARC’s (advanced reader copies) which is not something that I did in the past. In fact, I didn’t really know about ARCs until this past summer when I went to BookCon and saw people reading titles like The Wicked King and Priory of the Orange Tree early.
Of the books I did purchase, I finally got a UK first edition of Caraval with the hidden clock! It took me so long to find this book and while the book is in okay condition, I’m glad I didn’t spend the $50+ that most people charge for the book. Besides that, I also got the February OwlCrate and February Fairyloot box (which I’m still waiting on). I did preorder Courting Darkness, Bloodwitch, Four Dead Queens, and Priory of the Orange Tree – although I’m still waiting on the last two to arrive to my house!
Some of the new releases I’m most excited for that release in March are:
- Bloodleaf by Crystal Smith
- The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton
- The Fever King by Victoria Lee
- The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees
- Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta
- Heroine by Mindy McGinnis
- Killing November by Adriana Mather
- Beware the Night by Jessika Fleck
- You Owe Me a Murder by Eileen Cook
- The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie
And of course so many other titles that I have not had the chance to read about/know about yet that are coming out in the month of March too! Let me know in the comments what your favorite book from February was and your most anticipated March release!

It’s great to know that you’ve had an amazing reading month! It’s a pity about The Cerulean, the cover is gorgeous! I spent most of February reading Unfinished Tales by J.R.R. Tolkien and some scattered issues of comics. From what I’ve heard, Priory of the Orange Tree is fabulous, so I’ve been looking out for that. I’m not too updated on new releases, but it’s always interesting to find out what they’re about!

Yeah it is a shame about The Cerulean, but I’m hoping the finished copy is significantly better. And yeah, I’ve heard Priory is amazing and I’m still waiting for my copy to arrive! I can’t wait to start reading it.
