February wrap-up // amazing but little reading

I’m posting this before the middle of March. Win! Anyway, today I’m wrapping up the month of February. It was a great month personally. I did a lot of fun things and went outside of my comfort zone several times! Reading and blogging wise, it wasn’t the best month though. Oh well, this is still a hobby, isn’t it? Let’s get into this wrap-up!


readingIn February I read 1 novel, 1 poetry book and 3 comic books. Not the best stats, but what can you do?

Goodreads

This tiny book consists of a single poem, so it was a very quick read. It was quite powerful, though. I read it two or three times to really let it sink in. I loved the illustrations! They added so much to the book. I like the initiative of the authors to donate their proceeds to help refugees. Overall, I liked this and I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. This also completes one of the prompts of my 2019 TBR, namely to read a book by Khaled Hosseini. I will still try to read a full-length novel by him this year as well.

GoodreadsMy review

This is my sole novel of the month and overall I thought it was okay. I even reviewed it here on my blog! (I’m proud of that, I’ve been really bad at reviewing lately.) I loved this book’s writing style! It was poetic, but not over the top. Giordano knew exactly what he wanted to say and conveyed that through many beautiful metaphors. The first example is the stunning title. The vibe was immersive and you could feel the loneliness radiating of the page. It was beautiful at times. That being said however, I was very disappointed by both the plot and the characters. I felt the novel lacked character development and tension. Overall, a middle-of-the-road 3 out of 5 stars from me.

Goodreads

This was such an enjoyable comic series! I’m so glad that I discovered it! I read through all existing issues in a single afternoon and I can’t wait for the sequels! I’ve come to care for these characters and their fencing adventures. I’m secretly hoping this will have an enemies to lovers trope incorporated. I can’t wait to see what the next installments bring. I would highly recommend this series! I gave the first comic 3, the second 4, and the third 5 out of 5 stars!
