February 2021 Reading Wrap-Up

Do you feel refreshed when you have a good reading month?

This is exactly the feeling that I have about February because it has been one of my best reading months in a very long time! I was able to dive into so many great cozy mysteries and even stepped out of my comfort zone and read my first historical/western fiction! One of my goals for this year is to read books from genres outside my norm and what I am finding, is that there are a lot of other genres that I really like and hope to continue to explore each of them.

Now for what you all are actually here for, my February wrap-up! This month I read a total of 9 books!

  1. Things You Save in the Fire by Katherine Center: This was a re-read for me, but Center has a way with her writing to make you feel every single emotion and I am here for it!
  2. Vanilla Bean Vengeance by Agatha Frost: This is the first book in Frost’s Claire’s Candles mystery series and it was such a fun read. It came as a complete shock as to who the murder suspect was! Seriously, Frost did a wonderful job keeping you on your toes throughout the investigation.
  3. Pies and Prejudice by Ellery Adams: This is the first book in A Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery series and I will be honest, this one did not do it for me. I did listen to the audiobook so if I read the physical copy, maybe I could appreciate it more.
  4. The Duke and I by Julia Quinn: Yes, yes I caved and read the first Bridgertons book and I am not mad about it. I loved everything from the relationships, the overall family, the world…it was great and I look forward to book 2.
  5. Crime and Poetry by Amanda Flower: Okay I really enjoyed this one! The characters were so fun and feisty which made for some comedic relief. Throw in a little magic, a quaint little book shop, of course a murder, and then BAM you have the perfect cozy!
  6. A Crafty Killing by London Lovett: This is the newest book in the Firefly Junction series and I freaking loved it, but that’s no surprise. London Lovett’s books are the ones that reignited my love for reading so I may be a little bit biased. I just love the world she is able to create in each of her books and how easily it is to love each of the characters.
  7. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas: All I can say is WOW and how I am mad at myself for waiting so long to read this series. This was far better than the first book in the series—it literally wrecked me–the end!
  8. One by One by Ruth Ware: I did not love this one like I was hoping I would. I hear so many great things about Ruth Ware, but I think I may need to pick up another.
  9. Whiskey When We’re Dry by John Larison: This was the first Historical Western Fiction that I have read or at least remember reading and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The best way to describe this book is that it is all: gunfights, revenge, desperation, self discovery, and whiskey. I thought the writing in this book was fantastic and makes me want to pick up another by this author.

Well there you have it, my February wrap-up! It was a great reading month for me and hope that March will be kind to me as well. What was your favorite book you read this month?
