Hey guys! How was your February??
Mine for sure didn’t go as planned… It was still awesome but for sure not as planned.
First, I pre-ordered some books I really wanted to get and ended up not getting them due to them being sold out. So that was the not so great part. But at least I did get one I was really anticipating! Then, I ended up traveling to Berlin and so I wasn’t able to read as much as I wanted. Which to be honest I am MORE THAN HAPPY that that part didn’t go according to plan – which was to stay home and read.
Berlin was amazing! Definitely one of my favorite cities so far! A bit similar to Paris in my opinion, which I also love… I loved the feeling, I loved everything I visited and although I didn’t buy much I bought some pretty cool things, so expect a haul pretty soon!!
I will stop rambling now and get to the point of this post. This month I read 12 books. I am really happy with this month because I got to participate in the Contemporary-a-thon, which was amazing, you can check out my post here and I actually discovered a LOT of favorites this month.
What did you read this month? Any favorites?

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Hey guys! The theme for January’s FairyLoot Box was Talk Faerie To Me. FairyLoot is an amazing YA bookish subscription box. I was extremely excited for this book for two reasons. First, because it was said that the box contained ACOTAR merch and second, because they said that a pillowcase was included and it’s my first bookish pillowcase ever!
If you wanna check out what this box included, just keep reading! I will show photos of the items, and information and my thoughts on them.Read More »
