February started out rough. Our sweet dog lost her fight with Congestive Heart Failure and we had to say goodbye. I drowned some of my sorrows in stories for sure.
Five of the nine titles I'm reviewing this month were advance galleys or audio files from NetGalley, so I want to start with a big thank you for the opportunity to read & review. I'm loving that NetGalley now has audiobooks as well as digital galleys.
Considering February only has 28 days, I read a lot of books and two of them earned a full 5-stars. So far 2023 has really started with a bang. I'm not sure how I will pick a top 10 if every month I read two or three 5-star books. Then again, it is a problem I will gladly face at the end of the year!
Below, you will find a quick glimpse into the books I read this month as well as the rating & genre. If you'd like to see my full review, click on the photo to link to my Goodreads review. In order of highest to lowest ratings this month! I recommend everything 3 stars and over.
I love to talk books so if you read any of these, send me a note! Let's discuss! Happy reading friends and take a second to cuddle your pup if you have one. They never get to stay with us long enough!!
