To me, being a writer means being an avid reader, and I love talking about the books I read! Every month I put together a book recommendation roundup and tell you what I loved the most so you can answer that important question, “What should I read next?” My goal for the year is to read 100 books—what’s yours?

1. The ex Hex by Erin Sterling
This book was sooooo cute! It’s Gilmour Girls meets Practical Magic with a complicated-in-a-good-way hero, strong heroine, and all the girl power. Plus, it just serves ✨ vibes ✨ I’m not a big fan of second chance romance, but this one did it so well!
2. A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas
This was a tough one for me. The first part, I was just cursing the new female main character. The second part, she got me. And then, by the third part…I would die for her. It’s so, so, good and I cannot wait to get the perspective of the other sister…which I hope is next!
3. Wishypoofs and Hiccups (Zoey and Sassafras #9) by Asia Citro
My six-year-old loves these books, and we enjoy reading them together! Zoey is a young scientist that uses the scientific method and her thinking goggles to help the magical creatures in the forest behind her house. We love reading these together, and we’re anxiously awaiting the next one.
4. Isn’t it Bromantic? by Lyssa Kay Adams
I’ve been waiting and waiting for the Russian’s story, and it was well worth the wait! I loved getting the perspective of this character and his second chance love story, even if it relied a little too much on misunderstandings for my taste, and the FMC lost her motivation a bit in the middle.
5. Fresh Brewed Murder by Emmeline Duncan
This cozy mystery is a lesson in setting for authors. I could feel, smell, see, taste, hear—and a little bit, roll my eyes at, lol—Portland in this book! Family drama, food cart drama, land development issues…I loved it!
Other Books I Read in February
- A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas – A great bridge between series arcs, but I’ll never be satisfied with novella length for these characters! SJM did some interesting things with POV in this book I keep thinking about in my own writing!
