Time for my 5 favourite reads of February 2022! Last month I decided to share the same for January, as I read 16 books and ended up sharing them a little too late. Given the fact that yes, I have read another 15 books this month, and because I enjoyed last month’s format, here we are again!
I’ve read so many amazing books this year already and we’re only two months in. It makes so excited to think about the rest of the books I will read in 2022 and what new favourites I may discover.
Here are my 5 favourite reads of February 2022
As I mentioned in my last wrap up, one of my bookish goals for the year is to read at least one non fiction book each month and in February, it was Have Pride. Last month was LGBTQ+ History Month so it was the perfect book to pick up, though we should be reading widely all year round. Have Pride is an important, informative and necessary read.
Aaaah, this book! The first novel in the Bellinger Sisters series, It Happened One Summer, was one of my favourite reads of 2021. So when I got the chance to read and review an early copy of the second book, I literally screamed. Hook, Line, and Sinker was a perfect friends to lovers romance which ticked every box for me. I’ll be posting a full spoiler free review soon but this was EVERYTHING and I still can’t stop thinking about it weeks later.
Hands up who is surprised that this book was my top read of February? No-one? That’s fair. As per my tradition, I booked a day off work to settle down and devour my most anticipated read of the year. Oh my gosh, I can’t even put into words my thoughts about House of Sky and Breath. I was screaming, crying, howling, and more. Maybe I’ll try and write some sort of review when I can make sense of my thoughts but in the meantime, just know that I am an SJM fiend and I’m going to need book 3 like, yesterday.
The Fine Print, the first book in the Dreamland Billionaires series by Lauren Asher, seems to have taken the romance world by storm. And I can see why! Each book features a different couple, though we do get glimpses of everyone in each book, and Terms and Conditions has some of my favourite tropes: marriage of convenience, workplace romance, “hate” to love, forced proximity, to name a few. I can’t wait to read the next book!
Meghan Quinn is one of my top romance authors; some of her sports romance stories are my favourite romance books full stop! But I hadn’t yet read her small town series, Getting Lucky. As with her other books, while we follow one couple during this story, we are introduced to a whole host of characters who will feature in future books. I devoured this, and while not my favourite Meghan novel, it definitely made me happy and swoony. Small town vibes are just impeccable.
