Cait’s February 2019 Book Haul

By: Cait Marie

February was a very slow reading month. I was having a rough time with classes and fell into a bit of a reading slump, so I only finished two books last month. This month is already going a lot better!

Books I Read

  • Obsidian Horizon – Heather Renee and Lela Grayce — I was able to beta read this final book in the Blood of the Sea trilogy, and I loved it! It wrapped up the series wonderfully. I’m so grateful to have been a beta reader for these two authors, I will definitely keep reading their books. Obsidian Horizon is set to release March 21! Full review coming soon. Reviews can be found for book 1 here and book 2 here.
  • The Blood Spell – C. J. Redwine — This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2019, and it did not disappoint! It’s the fourth Ravenspire book, each of which is a different fairy tale retelling. This one is Cinderella and it’s now one of my favorite retellings I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot. You can read the full review here.

While I may not have finished many books, I did start a bunch. I think March is going to be a very successful month. I’ve actually finished three books in the last 24 hours. It’s safe to say the reading slump is over. Plus, I’m done with those classes and started a new term. A fresh start always helps everything.

Books I Want To Read In March

  • Bloodleaf – Crystal Smith — Released March 12 and our book of the month! *Already finished*
  • Shadow Me – Tahereh Mafi — Released today (March 5)! *Already finished*
  • A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer
  • Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi — (reread) *Already finished*
  • Destroy Me – Tahereh Mafi — (reread)
  • Unravel Me – Tahereh Mafi — (reread)
  • Fracture Me – Tahereh Mafi — (reread)
  • Ignite Me – Tahereh Mafi — (reread)
  • Restore Me – Tahereh Mafi — (reread)
  • Queen of Air and Darkness – Cassandra Clare
  • Courting Darkness – Robin LaFevers
  • The Demon King – Cinda Williams Chima
  • The Cruel Prince – Holly Black
  • The Wicked King – Holly Black
  • Heart of Iron – Ashley Poston
  • Nevernight – Jay Kristoff
  • Four Dead Queens – Astrid Scholte
  • Stalking Jack the Ripper – Kerri Maniscalco
  • Hunting Prince Dracula – Kerri Maniscalco

This list looks super long and intimidating, but I can fly through the Shatter Me series. Last year, I read the first 5 (3 books and 2 novellas) in a week, which was fast for me. I have no doubt I can get through them all again just as fast or faster. I’ve already started a few of the others, too.

Have you read any of these? What’s on your TBR this month?
