February 2021 Wrap up

 Hello everyone!!

February has ended and we are ready for another monthly reading wrap up. This month I read 8 books and from them only 2 were physical copies, the rest were ebooks. Nowadays, I tend to read more ebooks because of my little girl as she wants to grab my book if I am reading a physical copy. 

Anyway, let's get to the books...
As always I will link any reviews that I have already posted.

The Near Witch - V. E. Schwab

I loved this book as much as the other works of V. E. Schwab that I have read so far. First of all, I love the setting. It feels so atmospheric and mysterious at the same time. The book reads like a fairytale.

Rating: 5 Stars

The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic - Leigh Bardugo & Sara Kipin (Illustrator)

This is an atmospheric collection of short stories. They are full with revenge, sacrifice, love and betrayal. There are six stories and all of them all beautifully illustrated. My favourite was Ayanna and the Thorn Wood.

Rating: 4 Stars

The Tailor (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy #1.5) - Leigh Bardugo 

This is actually a scene from The Shadow and Bone told from Genya's point of view. 
It's a great insight into Genya's life and it makes you understand her character and why she did what she did a little better.

Rating: 4 Stars

Shades of Magic Vol. 3: The Rebel Army (Shades of Magic Graphic Novels #9-12) - V.E. Schwab

It is actually a prequel to the main series as we follow King Maxim Maresh when he was still a prince. We are back in the world of Shades of Magic and its incredible magic system. It felt so good to be back in this world even if it was for a short time.
I read this volume I believe in an hour and I loved every bit of it.

Rating: 5 Stars

The Real J.R.R. Tolkien: The Man Who Created Middle-Earth - Jesse Xander

Reading author biographies is one of the things I like to do and especially if they are about an author I like. That is the case with this book. Jesse Xander has done an incredible research about J.R.R. Tolkien and that shows in his writing.

Rating: 4 Stars

I received an ARC of this books but all opinions are my own

Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) - Leigh Bardugo 

I have said it for other books too, but I should have read Six of Crows earlier. I finished it this month and it is certainly a five - star read for me. 
I loved the story of an impossible heist and I really liked the setting of it. 

Rating: 5 Stars

Big Book of Recipes for Babies, Toddlers & Children - Judy More

Great information about the child's first six years of eating more healthy food and introducing them in a more healthy diet.
Full of useful nutrition information as well as many easy and tasty recipes.

Rating: 4 Stars

Daybreak  - A.J. Navab

Let's start with the most important thing. I really liked Daybreak!
It is an action packed fantasy book with an interesting world-building and magic system.

Rating: 4 Stars

I received a free copy from the author but all opinions are my own.
