Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Even though I only read six books out of the ten books I had on my TBR for this month, I would still consider this month a successful reading month! I read my first 5-star book of the year, and my lowest rated book was only 3.5 stars – which is not bad at all!

The first book I read this month was “The Dreamers” by Karen Thompson Walker. I really enjoyed this book, and almost felt like I was reading magic. You can read my full review for this book here. Thanks to Penguin Random House Canada for an advanced finished copy!
The second book I read this month was “The Black Coats” by Colleen Oakes! This was my first 5-STAR read of the year, and I was not expecting my first 5-star book to be this one! This book was spectacular, and you can read my full review here. Thanks to HCC Frenzy for the ARC!
The third book I read this month was “Two Can Keep A Secret” by Karen M. McManus. While I did really enjoy this book, nothing about it surprised me. I was hoping for some exciting twists and turns, but sadly there weren’t many that truly shocked me. However, I still gave this book 4/5 stars!
The fourth book I read this month was “Moxie” by Jennifer Mathieu. I read this book because it was our group read for the Fierce Female Reads Readathon! I posted a full review for this novel, which you can read here. In short, I loved this book and gave it 4.5/5 stars!
The fifth book I read this month was “Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee” by Jeff Zentner. This book was released on Monday, and I posted my full review for it yesterday, which you can read here. Thanks to Penguin Teen Canada for sending me the ARC!
The last book I read this month was “Chicken Girl” by Heather Smith. I featured this book in my latest “In My Mailbox” post, which you can read here. I thought that this book was pretty good, and gave it 3.5/5 stars. My full review will be posted next week. Thanks to Penguin Random House Canada for the advanced finished copy!
Those are all of the books I read this month! Thanks to the publishers mentioned above for sending me some great books! How many books did you read this month and which one was your favourite?!
Good Night Book Owls!

Did you read One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus? I just read it and I’m wondering if Two Cand Keep a Secret will be a similar idea. Your feels are kind of how I felt about OOUIL.
I have not read OOUIL yet, but I plan on it really soon!!! I’ve heard that that one is better (I think?), but it was still a really solid read!
I’ve heard that Two Can Keep a Secret is better! OOUIL was also still a solid read just more mystery than thriller.
I read Moxie in Jan and loved it! Did you hear Amy Pohler is going to adapt it for Netflix??
Yes, I am super excited to watch the movie! I hope they keep everything from the book the same in the movie!!
Some of these are on my TBR. Glad you had a good reading month!
Awesome! Thank you! 🙂
Looks like you had a good reading month!
Black Cats has had me intrigued, I’m definitely going to throw it on my to read list now!
I wants them all
I like the look of all of those.
Your book choices all look so good.
You read some great books in February! I am currently reading Rayne & Delilah right now and I’m really enjoying it. I can’t wait to read Two Can Keep A Secret! 🙂
I am going to be adding these to my TBR (a couple already on it, and now the rest!)
[…] I read Karen’s newest thriller “Two Can Keep A Secret” when it released in February and I quite enjoyed it. However, I have heard that this one is much better, so I hope that I follow […]
