Wrap it up, wrap, wrap, wrap it up. In February I read 8 books and I’m not even mad about it. Again most of these were audio books because I’m obsessed and have so many to listen too.
The goddamn best voice actress I’ve ever read, can there be an award show for book audiobook narrators because I would like her to win them all. Also THIS BOOK! I’m obsessed. The plot is fantastic, the mystery and retelling of Jack the Ripper crimes gruesome and horrible, the characters are some of my favourite with real emotions and tension. Creating a feminist historical fiction YA mystery?! AND DOING IT SO AMAZINGLY WELL?! Straight to my favourite list.
This one just kept on suprising me and I was so into the world, into Audreys life, into her solving the murders going on while suffering and grieving. The ending made me yell in excitement for the next book. Only when I went to download it and saw the preorder button I was all the saddness. I don’t know why I thought it was already out but I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED FOR MORE. Audrey and Thomas ❤
My meh book of the month. I did like the main characters development with her family members but the actual plot did not do it for me.
THE TECHNOLOGY IS COOL. The main character and love interest was flat and just full of tropes I’ve read a million times before. I did really enjoy the world and the moral dilemma of downloading tech and how the virus work. The villain was fantastic and I am excited for the next book to hopefully go above and beyond this one, pushing beyond what This Mortal Coil delivered. While a unique takes on Zombies and gene hacking the plot points didnt wow me.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness (audio & physical)
I’m still thinking about this book and man it made me cry even if I look back on it now and think that was actually predictable why the hell did I cry the writing is just that good and could be picked apart and so many themes pulled out. It just wowed me to the core. Series review will be coming soon!

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (audio)
MY LOVELIER LOVE – If you don’t know I love these books to bits and I’m ready for the final book to destroy me, bring. it. on. Obsidio. ALSO please let me be killed off in this one, pretty please with murder on top.
SO that’s Feb done.
So many double books! I can’t remember the last time I read 3 book series in the one month and I highly recommend it. I love binging an authors work and being able to just keep going with the series until I have no more to go, whether that be because of a great ending (ness) a re-read (Kaufman and Kristoff) or starting an amazing new series and screaming because the next isn’t out till September sometime (Maniscalco I’m looking at you).
As for hauls go I didn’t buy any books but I did receive the Chaos Walking Trilogy from the publisher and borrowed all of these audiobooks!
The only book I didn’t love this month was Goodbye perfect and seeing how it was still a 3 star read, that’s a pretty good month. I adored re-reading Iluminae on audio, the visuals can’t be topped for me but damn the voice actors are a super close if not equal best. I finally heard the lollipop song in Gemina, I can read easy.
IM LATE BUT please tell me what you all read and loved in Feb! Also come yell with me that obsidio is out SO SOON! I HAVE BEEN WAITING 500 YEARS AND I AM READY.
