February Wrap Up | 2023

February was another excellent reading month quantity-wise! (Also what a nice round number for pages read this month- I find it oddly satisfying).  Overall, everything I read was pretty middle of the road. The standouts for me are Yours Truly which is a new favorite, and the Vox Machina graphic novels, but everything else, even my continued and finished series only ranked between 3-4 stars for me. I don’t count re-reads when I’m making my favorites of the month, but The Hunger Games definitely ranks as one of my favorite reading experiences of the month.  I’m actually enjoying it way more than I did the first time I read it all those years ago (more on that in a series wrap up post when I complete my full re-read!).
