Reflection: February 2022

February… the month of loooooove! I chose my February books very carefully because it is the month of love. I wanted to read some of bookstagram’s most loved romances! I kicked off the month on a high note with Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston which is my favorite book from February. Sadly, a few popular romances really missed the mark for me.

What will March hold for me? Probably not many romances. I’m a little romanced out at the moment!

My BOTM Pick This Month:

My pick for February was Peach Blossom Spring by Melissa Fu. I was drawn to it because it is a historical fiction about a Chinese family that covers things like war and immigration, according to BOTM’s page about it. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, however, that I have yet to read it because I have SO.MANY unread books to read right now. I am very excited to get to this one, though! Maybe I will in March?
