What I Read in February | Reading Roundup

So I didn’t read as many books as I expected to in February, probably because the month seemed to absolutely fly in. I’m also still not completely over my reading block and am struggling to find new books that engross me enough to finish, so this month was mainly spent rereading some of my old favourites. Here are my February reads:

The Red by Tiffany Reisz 

30755704

This may not technically count as I didn’t actually manage to finish it. I downloaded this after seeing so many amazing reviews on Goodreads, but had to admit defeat half way through. The premise is that the owner of a struggling art gallery agrees to submit to a mysterious man for a year and in return he will pay off her gallery debts. Every time they meet he has staged a new scene based on a famous piece of art. I thought this was an interesting premise but to be honest, it got to the stage where I had no idea what was going on. I seem to be in the minority with not enjoying this though.

 

Seduce Me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas

2948832

This is one of my favourite books ever, so it is a go to when I’m in a reading slump. I’ve gushed about it before, and will probably continue constantly raving about it. This book will break your heart and make you cry, what more could you want?

 

 

 

 

Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

7843102

This is another reread that I have already raved about. It is the final book in the amazing Wallflowers series, but can be read as a standalone. This is such a lovely, sweet read that is a masterclass in the ‘hero has been secretly in love with the heroine all along’ trope. Although there is plenty of drama, it isn’t that angsty, so it was the perfect book to read after the angst filled Seduce Me at Sunrise.

 

 

Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas

44285731

Okay, I should probably just become a Lisa Kleypas fan page. This is the final book in the Ravenels series, and my favourite so far. I loved, loved, loved it. It was the perfect combination of romantic, angsty and funny. I honestly can not recommend it enough. My full review can be found here.

 

 

 

 

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

43884209

I have wanted to read this for ages now after constantly seeing amazing reviews on Goodreads and Instagram. Chloe has a chronic illness that means she is constantly in pain. She decides to make a list of things that she wants to push herself to achieve, and ropes in her apartment superintendent, Red, to help her. They are complete opposites, but really understand each other. I enjoyed the sarcastic banter between them, and also the representation of Chloe’s illness. This was a fun read, but I wasn’t as hooked on it as I expected to be. I think I would have enjoyed more build up to them becoming friends, as initially they dislike each other.

 

I started a couple of other books as well but didn’t get very far into them so just marked them as DNF. Overall, my favourite book this month was Chasing Cassandra, which I’m already looking forward to rereading.

Does anyone have any recommendations of books I could read this month? Let me know!
