February is typically my least favourite month of the year; it always seems to go by too slowly. Luckily for me, I had a whole bunch of books this month to keep me busy! This month, I was able to read 28 books.
Keep reading to check out what I read this month (and which reads I gave a 5-star rating!) and an update on my reading challenges!
WHAT I READ:
#cjsreads was busy this month! We read TEN books as a buddy read. We also put together a “thrilling” March photo challenge on Instagram! So that’s fun!

I also had the chance to read some books that are coming out in the next few months!

Feral by James Demonaco (April 2017)- review coming soon!
A Presence of Absence by Sarah Surgey and Emma Vestrheim- review coming soon as part of the blog tour in March!
BOOKS TO ENJOY NOW:
I love getting advanced review copies but it’s not fun to read only books that are upcoming- then I have no one to discuss them with! So, as always, I was sure to read a few neglected books that have been on my TBR shelf and get some books from my local library that were previously released!

I have been plugging away at my challenges. I am 30% complete in my Goodreads challenge of 200 books! I have read 60 so far this year!
I also was able to reach 80% on Netgalley this month; so I am coming along quite swimmingly with my Netgalley/Edelweiss Challenge.
I am struggling with my Beat the Backlist challenge; I am not reading nearly as many of my own books as I would like. I am going to work on making this more of a priority in the upcoming months!
Well, there ya have it! My wrap up for this past month and some general updates! Have you read any of these? Maybe they are on your TBR list? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
And, as always, Happy Reading!
