February Wrap Up – an intense month of reading

It’s high time for a February wrap up! I did quite well this month, seven books total!

Vicious – V.E. Schwab

The first book on this February wrap up is Vicious. I’ve been meaning to read it forever, but as the song goes, I never got to it. Finally decided to read it quickly before classes would start. I really really enjoyed this book. It’s a not so typical superhero / villain story. I think the plot was really well executed.

The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Choksi

After reading Vicious, it was high time for a YA fantasy. I checked Goodreads and this was the first YA novel I read since The Darkest Part of the Forest… which I finished in December. I enjoyed this book, and the plot was really interesting, but the magic system still has me a little confused. The second book will come out in September though, so I’m excited for that!

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet – Becky Chambers

I won’t tell too much about this book, other than that I absolutely loved it. I have a review for it that I posted a while ago! If you like light science fiction, space, and intriguing characters, this is your book.

Starlight – Brandon Sanderson

You all know I love Brandon Sanderson’s books. Both his fantasy and science fiction works are excellent. It took me a bit to get into the story, though. I can’t even tell you too much about the plot, because of spoilers. However, if you haven’t read it yet, be prepared for the plot to go in a direction you would not assume. Shit’s about to get real.

On Guerilla Warfare – Mao Tse Tung

And now for something totally different. For my violent rebels class I have to read a couple of books this semester. Since books are books, I decided to count them toward my Goodreads challenge. This first book is, like the title suggests, about guerrilla warfare. I thought this was an interesting read because I can recognize a lot of the guerrilla methods described in modern guerrilla warfare. Also it helps that the language wasn’t too hard, haha.

On War – Carl von Clausewitz

The second book I had to read for class. Although I am cheating a bit… We only had to read book 1. And thank god for that too, because this thing is huge! I’m pretty sure my boyfriend has read this front to end, but to be honest, I had difficulty getting through the first chapters. Although the topic was interesting, the language itself was a little too dense for me and I had trouble synthesizing the information.

3.5★

And that was it! I wonder or March will be a good reading month as well. I hope so, because I’m planning to read a couple of books for my thesis. What was your favorite read in February?
