There’s still one day left of February but since I won’t finish a book or write a review before then I’ll post this wrap-up now. I had an okay-ish reading month. I could have gotten more done but oh well. Lately I’ve been focusing on my Gilmore Girls rewatch ❤
by Richard Siken
I’d heard of Richard Siken for a while because he’s often quoted online, and one night I decided to check him out finally and I didn’t regret it. I don’t read poetry often but this was beautiful. I didn’t rate it because it’s hard for me to rate poetry, especially if I’ve only read it once, but I really enjoyed most of the poems in this book.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone
by Laini Taylor
I loved this so much. Such an unique story and beautiful writing. I’d definitely recommend it.
5/5 stars + a new favorite!
Throne of Glass
by Sarah J. Maas
I finally don’t feel like an outsider anymore for not having read this book! Sadly it wasn’t all that, but I’ve heard the series improves so don’t worry, I’ll continue!
The Basic Eight
by Daniel Handler
I started this on a whim because I was curious, but I haven’t had the time to finish it yet because I had to prioritize a library book. I’m only 15% in but it seems like it could be a fun and disturbing one so I can’t wait to get into it properly.
by Elisabeth Øvreberg
This is the library book I had to prioritize. It’s a Norwegian fantasy and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. The basic premise is interesting but I’m not liking the way the omniscient narrator works and the instalove is a bit too much for me (even though it’s refreshing that it’s one sided and not straight).
