I put 15 books on my TBR this past month – but was that all I read in February 2022?
After a phenomenal reading month to kick off the year (20 books in January), I thought it was about time that I raise my monthly goal from 10 to 15. Apparently, I thought it would be fun to go full overachiever for the shortest month of the year. I pretty much slapped myself silly when I realized the mistake I had made. However, that didn’t keep me from being determined to reach that goal. I decided not to push myself to read the chunkiest, slowest book on my original list, and instead, I picked up a novella and a few mangas to fill in the gaps as needed, allowing me to read 18 books total by the end of February.
It might sound crazy to you – reading over 15 books in a month – but for me, it’s so much fun. This month was awesome, not because of the number of books I read, but because I discovered several new favorites! The stand-outs in February were Wind Daughter (my most-anticipated read of the year), The Kindred (I had high hopes but wound up loving it more than I thought I would), and Crave (for which I had zero expectations and it wound up totally captivating me – and sent me into a wild book hangover)! Check out my thoughts on the rest of the titles I picked up during my birthday month.
