Monthly Recap: February

Some day, I'll manage to post this on the first of the month...

The Winner's Curse

Read just in time for The Winner's Crime, which I will be buying as soon as I finish Bringing Up Bebe (which is the first physical book I have read in a long time!). There seem to be a lot of books that focus on dystopian-racism at the moment (the first book on my March reading list is The Red Queen). TWC had some great characterisation, fantastic plot twists (particularly the end) and I liked that the society reminded me of ancient Greece/Rome.

The Guantanamo Diary

This should be required reading. Chilling, thought-provoking and extremely well written (to the point where I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn't fiction).

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

Very funny. I definitely identified with Lara Jean's feelings on driving! I could never quite tell where this book was going next and it took me quite a while to decide what I even wanted to happen next. I am really looking forward to book two.

So far, I'm two books ahead on my Goodreads challenge :) I've also made some progress on the Pop Sugar challenge, which you can see here. I'm currently on book two for March after I devoured The Red Queen in a couple of days.


  1. The Winner's Curse sounds interesting! I've heard many good things about The Red Queen and I'm tempted!
    It's so good that you're ahead on Goodread challenge. I'm always behind lately.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. The Red Queen is really worth the hype, which I am so pleased about! I would definitely recommend both. I'm feeling good about my challenge at the moment. I usually dip a bit in the middle of the year then work hard to catch up at the end!

  2. Can't wait to see what you think about Winner's Crime
