February was a shorter month with a lot of reading packed in for me. I ended up reading a couple books that I just loved and quite a few that were just so-so.
I always find it interesting how differently we all react to the same pieces of writing. I even will respond differently to something depending on my mood, time of year, stage of life, etc.
As I share more and more about books I always want to be aware that my feedback is just that, my own, and you may have a completely different reading experience. I think that is with makes books and media in general so interesting to share about too, we all have such different responses. 💜
More Than Words by Jill Santopolo: So different than The Light We Lost but I enjoyed this one so much! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen McManus: I think YA books are just not my favorite because I struggle to connect with the characters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Juliet’s School of Possibilities by Laura Vanderkam: A unique take on time management advice…a fiction novella that was easy to consume and a fun way to share her knowledge in a fresh way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (ARC releasing 3/12/19)

Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly: Heartbreaking and often difficult to read as a parent but amazing storytelling and a truly engaging read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 (ARC releasing 4/2/19)
Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams: A heavier read than you first anticipate that is full of important and timely topics…enjoyed seeing her process of self-love while dealing with many challenges…struggled with some of the choices of the main character. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 (ARC releasing 3/19/19)
