Hi everyone! I’m sorry to be posting this so late, but I have been working non stop on my thesis since I’m really behind on it and, because of that, I haven’t had much time to blog.
Without further ado, here’s my february wrap up:
- February wasa pretty stressful month for me, I was planning two long trips and while I’m really excited to be going on those trips, all the things related to planning like buying tickets and making reservations made my anxiety get really bad. Also, I’m really behind on my thesis, so that didn’t help the situation with my anxiety.
- In February. I finished my internship and started my last month of classes, but beyond that not a lot happened.
WHAT I READ
This year I’m participating in a few reading challenges, so I’ll be keeping track of that with some emojis!
🌸 =Reading Women Challenge 🌿= Catch Up on Classics ⭐= Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-fi Challenge 🌻= Year of the Asian
Hi Fi Fight Club # 2 by Carly Usdin (4,3 stars): I love the art and the color palet in this, also the story is endering and entertaining.
Baby Maker by P. Dangelico (3,6 stars): This was fun, but not very memorable. I really like books where strangers make an arrangement to have a baby and end up falling in love, so I enjoyed that aspect of this, but that basic premise is almost all I remember about it.
Dirty Rowdy Things by Christina Lauren (3,4 stars): Fun and steamy, but also a bit frustrating.
Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren (3,4 stars): I think this was a case of my expectations being too high. I’m a huge fan of friends to lovers stories and this started in a very promising way but, when they actually got together it felt underwhelming.
Let’s Get Textual by Teagan Hunter (3,6 stars): This was hilarious, sexy and sweet. The love interest was so nice, which I loved, and the dynamic between the characters was highly entertaining, especially their text messages. Also, there’s a baby goat in this, what else do you need to know?!
The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan (3,5 stars): The text messages in this were the best part, they felt like real messages between real people and the voices of both of the main characters were so well done. This was really angsty and it uses a trope at the end that I don’t like.
The Risk by Elle Kennedy (3,8 stars): This has fake dating, which is my favorite trope and it was well done. I do think that there was an unnecesary storyline with the main character’s past at the end, but that meant that there was a heartbreaking but beautiful father/daughter scene that I really appreciated.
Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson (4 stars): Really interesting, thought-provoking book. It explores race and class in a very complex and nuanced way.
Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed (4 stars): This is a book with an important message since it addresses islamophobia. I really enjoyed Maya’s story and her development thorughout the book, even if I felt meh about the romantic relationship. Also, I think the little inserts from random people’s povs didn’t work that well – 🌻
Black Enough by Various Authors (3,7 stars): As with every short story collection, there were some great stories and then there were also a lot of meh stories.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brönte (3,6 stars): Every character was a dislikeble character and most of them were terrible people, but I still found the story interesting and engaging.🌿
