February was going so great and then I hit a wall around the 20th. A combination of migraines and insomnia made it impossible to fully function for like a week. I still feel like I am not getting enough sleep but at least the migraines have stopped. So I only got through three books this month. I could have made it four, but I really didn’t want to force myself when I still wasn’t feeling great. This is also why this wrap-up is a day late and why there won’t be a Top Ten Tuesday post today. I still got to some great books this month and am eager to pick up the ones I didn’t get to soon.

Favorite Book This Month:
My favorite read in February was Tiffany D. Jackson’s Grown. It was powerful and infuriating and an important read for teens to pick up. I have to edit my review for this one but you can expect the review very soon. Cover linked to Goodreads.
Least Favorite Book This Month:

What I Watched/Am Watching:
Mr. Sunshine – I finally finished Mr. Sunshine. I am not okay. I have been watching this K-Drama since December and have been savoring it because I loved it so much. It is now my all-time favorite K-Drama and nothing will ever compare. I feel like I’ve kept talking about this one but that I’ve also undersold it. If you like historical dramas that tackle imperialism and classism, this is a must watch. There are two main leads (who meet and give chase on a rooftop after trying to assassinate the same person), but also three secondary characters who all get their own arcs. There are stories of love, camaraderie, begrudging respect. I loved every single one of these characters and you can’t convince me that there were not all in love with each other as well.
Also side note, I am currently looking for sapphic recs that have this kind of vibe^^^ Hit me up with your fav books in the comments where the female leads have a fighting scene. I have a mighty need.
WandaVision – Well, Elizabeth Olsen is an absolute delight in this mini-series. I really enjoy the direction this one has gone so far in addressing the devastation and life-altering pain grief brings. Looking forward to the final episodes.
