What I Read in February

February was such a fun month for me personally that I'm willing to overlook the fact that it was something of a slump in terms of reading.  I read much more than I did in January, but not much of it was just exceptional.  I gave out more two and three stars on Goodreads than I have in quite a while.  There were some notable exceptions: Spark Joy, Starflight, New Order, and American Housewife all got five stars, but I did a lot of less than stellar reading, which is always a disappointment.

The best part of the month was my BFF weekend with Jacki and Jennie from We Still Read.  They came to visit and I got to show them all around my hometown, which was a real treat.  And of course we went book shopping and spent hours and hours talking.  It was way too short, but completely refreshing.  I spent a two of the other weekends relaxing with my book club friends and meeting some of Luke's new board game friends, and the other weekend being sick and miserable (completely made up for by the BFF weekend).

Here's what I read:
