February 2021 Bookish Recap

March 15, 2021


I know, I know. I'm super late with this one. We're already halfway through March and here I come with a recap on what was great and fabulous over here in The Biblioholic's realm. I get it. But I'm here anyway because I seem to work on my own calendar and I'm treating today like it's March 1st.

I could go on and on about all that's happened in my life to delay this post, but I won't because it happened, it's past, and I'm ready to move on. I do promise that I will try to make a timely post for March's recap.
I still haven't read as much as I usually do and it's sad in a way, but it's also good. Reading less has made me appreciate the books I do read so much more and I can give time to each story that I couldn't give before. So in a way, reading less works for me. I found some amazing books in February and I can only hope to find equally awesome books for March.

The Best Book(s) of February


Forbidden Flame by Alison Aimes Conjugal Visits by Lani Lynn Vale

One is a scifi romance built around revenge while the other is an incredible story about true love.

The other books I read this month (all of them good) were:
The Young and the Sinner by V.T. Do — a new-to-me author (3 stars)
Trapped by Alison Aimes (4 stars)
The Cyborg's Secret Baby by Cynthia Sax (4 stars)
Stalkers Anthologya dark romance collection (3 stars)
Her Sexiest Mistake by Jill Shalvis — a new-to-me author (3.5 stars)

Book Haul



I've been doing exceptionally well on cutting down how much I buy each month. I did purchase some more signed books (more on that in a future post), but overall, I saved a lot of money as opposed to last year.

Added to my TBR


Falling Out of Hate With You by Lauren Rowe
Falling Into Love With You by Lauren Rowe
Rebellious by Kristy Marie

OMG you guys!! Look how good I did!! Three books??? My TBR is feeling lighter already!!

My Reading Stats


This month, I tried something new. I started putting my books into Google Sheets. I know, I'm probably one of the last readers to do this, but WOW why didn't anyone tell me how great it is to keep track of everything???

Okay, so here are some of my charts so we can see how I'm doing...

Out of a total of 8 books for February:






What Else?


I actually participated in AND completed a reading challenge this month. GO ME!! It was a monthly reading challenge with the Goodreads group called Romance Readers Reading Challenges. You can find all of their information HERE and their challenge for the month of March HERE.

I had a ton of fun doing it, especially when it came to the end of the month and I had to quickly find books to fit the challenge so I could finish it. I was planning to do one for March, but I'm probably going to wait until April and see what the prompts are.



Thanks for sticking around until the end :D I'm still looking for book recs, so if you have one you think I'll love, please let me know.

BTW... how was your February? And how is March treating you?

Talk soon,

xo, Natalie
