Monthly Wrap-Up: February ’18

MonthlyWrap-UPI’ve been in a bit of a weird head space for the last couple of weeks. I DNFed an ARC for the first time and feel like I wasted almost a week trying to get through it before doing so. I’m trying to feel better about reading less, but it’s a really hard switch to flip. I decided to join Can’t-Wait Wednesdays as a way to fill the blog and not feel so much pressure to produce a certain number of reviews a month. Still, I managed to finish five books in February. I’m planning a two-week hiatus at the end of March, going into April, so expect an announcement around March 24th. Also, I will be posting a giveaway tomorrow for a few bookmarks I made, so look for that.

(Book covers below are linked to my reviews, unless otherwise specified.) 

Favorite Book This Month:

My favorite read this month was Sandhya Menon’s When Dimple Met Rishi. I can’t believe it took me this long to pick up this adorable rom-com. I loved both leads and smiled way too much reading it. My review will be posted in March. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

Least Favorite Book This Month:

No read this month received less than three stars from me.
