Hey everyone! It’s my first monthly wrap up EVER on Fawn & Fern and I’m so excited to share the books I’ve read this month. I’ve read a few great books, a good book and a book I wish I hadn’t even started. Keep reading to find out!

February went by SO FAST. January was probably the longest month of my life. I’m getting married in June, and March means I’ll be a married in THREE MONTHS. To be honest, I’ve been so anxious about it that reading is one of the only things that takes my mind off of everything.

To start the month I began Everless by Sarah Holland on audio book. This was my first audio book ever and I’m not going to lie… I struggled to get through it. I think it had a lot to do with the voice of the narrator and also it just felt boring. There was no chemistry between ANY of the characters. I couldn’t find much of anything to like about any of the characters, which is saying a lot. I had not liking books, but this was not my cup of tea. I gave it two stars.

One of the better books of the month was The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton. You can read my review here. My oh my, this was filled with people who were borderline obsessed with how they look, teacup animals, a crazy pants villain and a main character who, although full of herself at first, always wants to do what’s right.

For a historical non fiction book I read Love & Ruin by Paula McClain. Let’s just stay it has started a Hemingway obsession. Not to mention it features kick ass main character Martha Gellhorn.

Last but certainly not least, The Broken Girlsby Simone St. James. I never pictured myself enjoying a mystery/paranormal book but man, I really got into this novel. It actually got me into watching more crime shows on Netflix (currently watching The Killing!) so there’s that.

Out of the four of these, The Belles and Love & Ruin were my favorites. I’ve already started reading three books at once for March (omg I’m insane) so stay tuned for a TBR post!
