February was another great reading month, having read so many good books and 12 total (one of them being the 800+ page beast that was my reread of House of Earth & Blood). I’m so happy with how much I’ve read so far in 2022, and hope I continue this reading energy throughout the year!
I read a total of 12 books this month, with 2 rereads – Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle Cosimano and House of Earth & Blood by Sarah J. Maas. The Finlay Donovan series has become of my favorites, & I loved being back in the world of SJM with my Crescent City reread. I plan on reading House of Sky & Breath soon! I kept up with my YA mystery/thriller kick by finishing the A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series – I don’t have reviews for this trilogy but its become one of my new favorite YA series. The third & final book, As Good as Dead, was so dark & twisty, I’m still thinking about it.
My gems from this month include Running Wild by K.A. Tucker (I need more Marie & Tyler), When You Get the Chance by Emma Lord, and I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys. I also read BookTok fave Reminders of Him and it’s become one of my favorite Colleen Hoover books.

The Marvelous Mrs.Maisel S4 (Amazon) – One of my FAVORITE shows came back this month, The Marvelous Mrs.Maisel. I have been loving the latest season so far and I find myself wanting more & more just as each episode ends (I do admit that I’m bummed that only 2 new episodes release each week).
And Just Like That…The Documentary (HBO Max)– As someone who wasn’t the biggest fan of And Just Like That, I really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the show. My hands-down favorite aspect was seeing all the clothes from Sex & the City and how wardrobes choices were made in the spinoff.
I also tried watching Inventing Anna (Netflix) and Love is Blind Season 2 (Netflix), but I just can’t seem to get into either of them. I’m especially bummed about Love is Blind because this was one of my reality TV faves of 2020, but I just can’t seem to get into this season. I wonder if it’s because I know what to expect this season. All I know is that I am SO looking forward to Bridgerton Season 2 on March 26th!
