February 2018 | Wrap Up

Hey friends,

Ah, can you believe that we’re already into March? 2018 is definitely flying by (which also means the end of the semester is right around the corner)!

February was a weird reading month for me. I was in a reading slump for the first two weeks of the month, but fortunately broke out of it by the end of the month and was able to knock out 7 books and enjoyed most of them!

If you rather listen to me ramble about these books, you can watch my BookTube video:

SpelledSpelled by Betsy Schow

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 3/5

Review: This was a cheesy/cute book. It’s definitely a fractured fairytale and had a lot of fun playing with some tropes. I like how this book blends classic Enchanted Forest characters with the Land of Oz. I’m going to continue on with the series if the other two audiobooks come in from the library. This was definitely a series that felt significantly more juvenile in its writing but is a light/easy read.

 

hunting prince draculaHunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ – 4.5/5

Review: Oh I missed this world. Audrey Rose and Thomas are just two characters I love spending time with and this story was such a great continuation of Stalking Jack the Ripper. I loved how events from the first book directly played a role in this one, and how the story was able to expand the lore of this world without being a complete rehash. I can’t wait to see how Kerri Maniscalco builds the world with the release of Escaping from Houdini.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ – 3.75/5

Review: So, this was a book where it was a solid meh 3-star read for a majority of my time reading it, but ended up getting bumped up after the twist. It didn’t take me by complete surprise, but I think part of that was because I wasn’t that invested in the first half of the story. I did mention in my readathon vlog that I bumped it up to a 4 star, but looking back, it’s more like a 3.75. Also, huge thank you to everyone who recommended this one to me after my review of Genuine Fraud!

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ – 4.5/5

Review: This was such a cute and funny read. There were just several things that resonated with me and some things going on in my personal life, and it was just nice and relatable read. This was definitely a more fluff kind of contemporary and is definitely not for everyone, but it was what I needed and one I really enjoyed.
