Last month I read a crazy amount of books… 22! I don’t think I have ever read that much in one month before but I credit a lot of that to not being able to do much else at the beginning of the year plus I discovered Tillie Cole’s Hades Hangmen series. I can tell you that while I’m still reading a lot it has definitely slowed down. We are almost half way through February and I’ve read 6 books, which is still a lot but I’m for sure not going to reach January’s number. I am happy that I am reading less because it means that I am able to be doing more of my day to day life.
I am happy to report that I read all but one of the books (technically I’m reading one right now) on my January TBR and a couple of books from my Magical Readathon tbr. Those books also worked for two of my January Romanceopoly books.
I will link to any reviews that I did for the books mentioned below. Also be sure to check out all my stats for the month at the end of this post.
Netgalley Review: The Reputation by Sara Shepard
The Little Bookshop on the Seine by Rebecca Raisin

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I was really excited to read this because it is so highly talked about but I thought the first half of this book was so boring. I did like the second half so I plan on continuing on (slowly) with the series.
Anna Kendrick is one of my favorite actresses so it was no surprise that I loved this book. I also listened to it as an audiobook which I highly recommend because it added so much to the experience. And we all know that I am not an audiobook person so that is saying something coming from me. I started this in December and towards the end of the book she talks about how her Grandma’s death effected her which was hard for me so I put it down for about a month. I ended up loving the end of this book the most and I am convinced that Anna and I would be best friends if given the chance.
I did really enjoy this book but for me it was more a well done survival story than a thriller. I was disappointed while reading it because this book has been so hyped up and I feel like every reveal was obvious. I do highly recommend this book though because it is very much a locked room “mystery” which is my favorite thing to read. Combine that with an intense survival story and you have an exciting read.
