Wrap Up // February & March – I Am Sad

I have gotten a whole lot of nothing done, reading-wise within the last two months.ย ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

I keep looking at my bookcases, which are filled with unread books that have been sitting patiently for me to read them for ages at this point and now I am feeling the crushing weight of them… Which you would think would get my butt in gear to read them but no.

Of course, instead, I can’t pick up a book to save my life. I have read one here or there recently but they’ve been taking me sometimes weeks to get through.

So without further ado, let’s get into the mess that has been my reading for the last two months.

Cloud Separation

February TBR

My February TBR was quite long going by my standards but I figured since several were graphic novels and I was on a roll!

Then things quickly went south and not long after that I took a month off from the book world, and reading for the most part as well.*

Somehow I did manage to read every single book on my TBR except oneย because the world hates me right now

It just took me all of March as well. Oops.

I think that can still count that as a win though since I did take a whole month off during that timeย so really it was a month’s worth of reading, it just wasn’t during the month I planned for it.

Ya girl is still 17 books ahead of schedule and… how??? I really was on a roll in January!

I’m going to do a quick breakdown of what I read, how I did, and what I thought!

*I did a whole post about it, you can find it here.

Lightning Separation

โ”‚Saga Vol 5โ”‚โœ”โ”‚Brian K. Vaughanโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

โ”‚Saga Vol 6โ”‚โœ”โ”‚Brian K. Vaughanโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

I’m always going to love this series I think. It’s by far my favourite graphic novel series, and has consistently been good throughout.ย ๐Ÿ˜

โ”‚The Radical Elementโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Jessica Spotswoodโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

This was such an incredible collection of stories! It was so strong in what it was trying to say as a whole, and with each individual story as well.ย โœจ

โ”‚Miss Mayhemโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Rebel Belle #2โ”‚Rachel Hawkinsโ”‚3.5โ˜…sโ”‚

โ”‚Lady Renegadesโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Rebel Belle #3โ”‚Rachel Hawkinsโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

I did really enjoy this series, it was fun, light, and not really what I was expecting.ย ๐ŸŽ†

โ”‚Riot Daysโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Maria Alyokhinaโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

I do wish I had enjoyed this one more as the message is an important one, I just really struggled with the writing and format.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

โ”‚GIRL: Love, Sex, Romance, and Being Youโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Karen Rayneโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

An important resource for young people, regardless of gender identity in my opinion. Also just a great read for older people who wanna learn more about the ever-evolving thing called sex ed. I’m sure they’re out there somewhere.ย ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

โ”‚Rat Queens Vol 3โ”‚โœ”โ”‚Kurtis J. Wiebeโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

Again, I really loved this one but it didn’t quite live up to the volumes that came before it and I’m dreading picking up the fourth volume as I’ve heard it’s not as good as the rest of the series.ย ๐Ÿ˜•

โ”‚Suicide Squad 3โ”‚โœ”โ”‚Rob Williamsโ”‚โ˜…โ˜…โ”‚

I don’t know why I keep doing this to myself. I have well and truly given up on the Suicide Squad now.ย At this point, my word means shit all though. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

โ”‚Thief’s Cunningโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Sarah Ahiersโ”‚3.5โ˜…sโ”‚

I was initially surprised where this actually picked up since the last book (not in fact right after but over 15 years later) but once I got passed that I did quite enjoy this one, it just wasn’t incredible for me.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

โ”‚Appetiteโ”‚โœ”โ”‚Anita Cassidyโ”‚โ˜…ย DNFโ”‚

I couldn’t connect with the characters other than David, but there was some really brutal fatphobia so it was a struggle to read on that alone. It just was very dry and boring as well.ย ๐Ÿ˜“

โ”‚A Court of Wings and Ruinโ”‚Xโ”‚ACOTAR #3โ”‚Sarah J. Maasโ”‚

I was really trying to get to this one soon since my memory is shocking and it’s been a while already since I read the first two. I think I might just have to resign myself to read the series from the start again because I’ve forgotten so much already… I’m not really looking forward to reading A Court of Thorns and Roses again…*ย ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

*I just really hated it I’mย not sorry

Seeing just how little I read makes me sad. I just can’t seem to get out of this bloody slump no matter how good the book is.

I’m currently reading A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and I absolutely love it! I know I’m not just trying to convince myself of this either because I have used so many tabs and highlighted so many quotes so far.

I just can’t seem to make myself pick it up very often and when I do, I always do it right before I have to do something else so, I’m cramming in a chapter or two every couple of days.

I have no idea what is wrong with me or how to fix it! Someone help me!

Cloud & Lightning Separation

I hope y’all appreciate the playing around with font sizes that I have doneย guys it was really hard, even with May’s super great step by step, I’m just a dumb-dumb honestly.

What did you read during February or March?
How do you get out of a reading slump?
No seriously, I really do need help.

  1. Ohh you have read the Rebel Belle series and enjoyed it, yay! I haven’t read it just yet, but it’s on my TBR, it sounded like such a fun series. I’m glad you liked it – and thank you for the reminder to read it sometime haha ๐Ÿ™‚ Funny how some books just end up buried in our endless TBRs hahaha.
    Glad you’re enjoying Gentlemen’s Guide, I heard amazing things about that one – I have yet to read it as well haha.
    I’m sorry you’re feeling in a bit of a slump :/ I wish I had brilliant advice, really, but maybe taking a little break from books or re-reading a favorite could help โค
    Wishing you a lovely month! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    1. The Rebel Belle series was really good, nice and light and fluffy! โœจ

      Itโ€™s so good so far Iโ€™m really enjoying it! Mackenzie Lee is now the queen of historical ya fiction in my eyes ๐Ÿ˜

      Iโ€™m pushing myself to read more, and thatโ€™s helping. I think my biggest problem was that I was watching so many really brilliant tv shows that I wanted to watch them instead of reading because it was easier. But Iโ€™ve now finished Sense8 (which is fucking amazing btw) and have now forced myself to only watch a couple of episodes of something at the most a day so thatโ€™s helping loads too!

      Thank you, you too ๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. Nice, light and fluffy?! You have me right here haha, I have to get to it soon ๐Ÿ˜€
        OH I get that haha, I haven’t watched Sense 8, but I get the same feeling with some tv shows sometimes, you just want to watch everything haha ๐Ÿ™‚
        You’re welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. It’s so good! When I started reading the first volume I was very confused because I had no idea what I was getting myself into but it honestly blew my mind!
      I’m not really interested in owning too many graphic novels in physical form (I borrowed them from the library) BUT I would 100% make an exception for this series!

  2. Omg Gentleman’s Guide is one of my absolute FAVOURITES OF LIFE. flails over it endlessly I even read it twice in one year.๐Ÿ˜‚ And I hate slumps, so that really sucks that you’re going through one…although I feel like you still got through a goodly amount there?! And graphic novels are great for slumping but still wanting to feel productive haha. I actually had a super good reading month in March and barely any low star reads! But that saying the book I’m reading now is boring the heck out of me.๐Ÿ˜‚ So obviously my good streak is about to end oops.

    1. Its so good!!! I forced myself to read quite a large chunk of it over the long weekend and I think I can finally say Iโ€™m out of my slump! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
      I think what was frustrating to me for this slump is that Iโ€™m in love with this book and yet it was still taking me forever to read, maybe I just wanted to savour it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
      Oh yay! Thatโ€™s great!
      Oh no, spoke too soon! That isnโ€™t good at all ๐Ÿคญ hopefully you can push past it and your next read will be great! My fingers are crossed for you ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป
