‘Me Before You’, ‘Confess’, And Other Books I Read This Month (Feb. Wrap-Up)

I read a lot of great books this month and I got a bunch of books too! Check out my first monthly wrap-up. I plan to do this at the end of every month as a recap of what I’ve read and what books I’ve either bought or was given to me during the month.

Top Three Books I Read This Month

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I absolutely loved this book. A retelling of Beauty and the Beast, this novel follows 19-year-old Feyre who’s forced to go to Prythian, the land of faeries, with a beast that shows up at her door. Although at first she doesn’t trust him and is fearful for her life she begins to realize this beast may not be as beastly as she originally thought.

2. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

This book made me cry just as much as I expected it to, which was a lot. When Louisa Clark accepts a job as a caregiver to Will Traynor, a wheelchair bound man, she doesn’t know what to expect. Although they have almost nothing common Louisa finds herself trying her best to make Will happy and show him life is worth living.

3. Confess by Colleen Hoover

I’d never heard of Colleen Hoover until I joined bookstagram and saw her books everywhere but man I’m glad I finally dived in. Confess follows Auburn and Owen as they’re paths continue to cross and intersect, having positive and sometimes negative affects on both of their lives. Filled with twists and surprises this book kept me on my toes.

      I love Me Before You! And I need to read Night Study but I feel like I need to reread the other study books because I didn’t really remember stuff. But I love Yelena and Valek so I’m excited there’s new books. Thanks for following!
