The Fifth Timekeeper by Jon and Dayna McConnell
I really enjoyed the second book in this series. This is an indie YA sci-fi series about a time travel competition. I really liked the plot of this one and actually preferred it to the first book. Based on the end, I think there will be more and I really hope I’m right.
The Stolen Heir by Holly Black
A traveling story with less interesting characters and barely hints of Elfhame, this was boring and had none of the magic of the original series. I didn’t care at all and stopped after about 100 pages.
Leviathan Wakes by James SA Corey
This sci-fi was so much fun. I didn’t love the characters and the end of the story got a little weird but I’m really excited to jump into the next one.
The Butcher of Anderson Station by James SA Corey
Right after finishing Leviathan Wakes, I picked up the novella that is number 1.5 in the Expanse Series. This was a nice background on an interesting character and although it was short, it seems more encompassing right after reading the first book so close before it.
Check Please! Vol 1 by Ngozi Ukazu
Then I picked up this graphic novel. It was cute but the pacing was way off. Two years of college in a 240 page graphic novel is just ridiculous. The time jumps made it hard for me to really care about the characters or plot.
Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik
I finished out the month reading the fourth Temeraire book. I love this dragon and this may be my favorite yet. The pacing is slow at times but I love this dragon and will definitely keep reading these fun books.
23 Books for 2023
I’m up to 3 books read off my 23 books for 2023. Not too bad but hoping to knock out a handful in March. Flamefall (Aurelian Cycle #2), Middlegame, Senlin Ascends, Aurora’s End and The Stardust Thief are all in my March plans.
Trope-ical Readathon TBR
March is the next Trope-ical Readathon and I’m very excited and hoping for a great reading month. My full TBR is written up here and also shown below.
