What’s New On My Bookshelf: February

I am on a true reading binge right now. It’s been a combination of finding good books available on Libby and finally catching up on some of the TBR books that have been sitting on my bookshelf. I’ve also just realized that I matched my count from last month: 6 books each month! I’m almost halfway to my meeting my 2020 challenge of 30 books 🙂 Keep on reading to see what I read in February and what I thought of each book!

At the end of last year, one of the goals I had set for myself for 2019 was to read 24 books, or two books in every month. Well I can happily say I far surpassed that goal…by 16 books! I rediscovered my love for reading new books, as I’ve been known to reread the Harry Potter series every year (I guess you could say I’m a fan).
